Malik Monk’s shot chart from last night is impressive


Malik Monk had quite the night in Madison Square Garden, hitting 7-11 threes on his way to a career-high 23 points in Kentucky’s win over Michigan State. You can see Monk’s shot chart from ESPN up there, and below, you can see a breakdown from Draft Express’ Mike Schmitz, who was so impressed by Monk’s night that he made a video about it:

More of Schmitz’s thoughts from Twitter (@Mike_Schmitz)…

On Monk:

“Monk is a game-changing scorer w/ his versatile shot-making & elite burst/bounce. Doesn’t have to be a PG but will have to guard them in NBA. Also thought Monk made a few nice reads on the move in half court/transition. Will take some bad shots but moved the ball when it was close.”

On De’Aaron Fox:

“Thought Fox was a mixed bag. Showed his talent level and his warts. Can live in the paint, stroke & decision making still a work in progress.”

On Bam Adebayo: 

“Thought Bam Adebayo got hosed by the refs a few times & had some nice moments but not quite as sold on his NBA upside. Energy center to me.”

Agree to disagree about Bam.

    Box score says he was 7-11, but the chart shows 12 shots. Was that X in the upper right on the line?

    I hope you’re right on agreeing to disagree about Adebayo. His results to date support Schmitz. That said, most of our great big men are late bloomers and I think he will be the same. Until our shooters get going, opponents are going to pack line us. Coach KP’s teaching takes time to have an effect on the big guys. I look for Adebayo to start turning corners in mid to late January.
