Trey Lyles is looking comfortable on an NBA court entering his second season. Lyles led all scorers with 26 points on 8-21 shooting. He also hauled in 11 rebounds and a pair of assists.
His team lost, but after watching this you’ll agree with me — he was the real winner of the night.
(h/t to Scott Charlton for the Vines)
He didn’t just dunk on people, he extended his range beyond the three-point arc.
The second-best player on the court tonight in Utah was James Young. Young led the Celtics in scoring with 17 points, knocking down 4-5 three-pointers. This trey put the game out of reach on the way to an 89-82 victory.
You’re probably thinking that Young simply spent the game posting up behind the three-point line, but that wasn’t the case. The man got after it on D, picking Aaron Craft’s pocket.
As happy as I am for the two from Kentucky, Craft’s sadness gives me more joy.
