D’Angelo Russell scored 16 points and dished out 10 assists in Sunday’s 116-104 win against the Hawks.
He has free reign in Brooklyn and is making the most of it. For the first three quarters he was playing the role of distributor and when the Hawks clawed back into the game in the fourth, D’Lo took it upon himself to score. Russell added a 3-pointer and steal to go with seven rebounds on 6-for-13 shooting from the field. With Jeremy Lin out for the rest of the season it could be a breakout year for Russell.
