Blazers' talk of the offseason Anfernee Simons came off the bench for 10 points, two rebounds, two assists and three treys in 21 minutes on Tuesday in a losing effort.
Simons is just 20 years old and didn't play college ball, but he's been getting talked up like crazy by his coaching staff lately. There may not be a log jam harder to break through than that of the Blazers' backcourt, so don't expect much from Simons for a while. Dynasty leaguers should be trying to acquire him now in case the hype is deserved. Another exciting young player, 24-year-old new Blazer Mario Hezonja posted 12 points, six boards, and two dimes in 20 minutes. He's got a chance to grab a good share of minutes off the bench this season.
