Russ Smith scored 81 points in a game in China

Former Louisville star Russ Smith is doing all he can to make his way back into the NBA, even if it takes scoring over half of his team’s 142 points in a game.

That’s what Smith did earlier this week when he scored 81 points on 15-of-26 shooting from the field, including 10 made three-pointers and 21-of-22 shooting from the foul line.

The Kobe-like effort brought his points-per-game average up to 61 points through five games for Luoyang in the Chinese National Basketball League.

That is Russdiculous, as they say.

      Like uavel, they may be provided by the ‘owner’; labor is cheap – and masseuses plentiful.

    Meh, Chinese players can’t ball, and if they can they are in the NBA. Devin booker dropped 70 against and nba team.

      Didn’t Jimmer Fredette drop like 70 something points in China a few months ago? That tells you all you need to know.

      Averaging 61 in 5 games is still impressive

    I see that picture and imagine a photographer saying, “yeah, if you could just look down at the ball and act like you’re yelling at it, I think that would be a good shot.”

    He better hope Dom Hawkins doesn’t come play there. That average will plummet.

    Something is not right here. 5 twos is 10 + 10 threes is 30 + 21 free throws = only 61.

    15-of-26 from the field or 2pt? Aren’t those 3’s from the field too? I think it should be 25-of-? from the field including 10 threes and 21-of 22 from the foul line. I could be mistaken. It’s happened once before.

      Yes. Y’all are right. The writer said it wrong.
