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)…
“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.
