D'Angelo Russell was good for 18 points (6-of-12 shooting), four rebounds, eight assists, two 3-pointers and just one turnover in Friday's win over the Knicks.
D'Lo played 31 minutes and has the starting point guard gig locked up, though Spencer Dinwiddie played well tonight and will be pushing him all season long. The turnovers and efficiency have always been Russell's big stumbling blocks and while one nice preseason game won't reverse the trend it's still good to see. A healthy Russell is an easy top-100 option in 8-cat but 9-cat owners should view him as more of a late-round option, though the upside is definitely appealing. A middle-round season could be in order.
