Caris LeVert scored 19 points on 8-of-9 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block over 28 minutes in Saturday's game against the Pacers.
LeVert looks like he has incrementally improved over last season and he has started off hitting 26-of-40 shots (65%) from the field, which is fueling the mass hysteria. One of his treys hit the shot clock and a steal was gifted to him in this one, and he hasn't really been bothered yet by Allen Crabbe nor has he hit an inevitable cold streak. Even if no major injuries strike ahead of him he should have the potential for mid-round value, and he might even be favored to do that, but he looked this good at times last season (and the year before) only to fade as the year went on. He seems to have more organizational support now and he looks incrementally improved, but the hype train is still ahead of the real value.
