D'Angelo Russell put up a team-high 20 points in Sunday's road win over the Pacers, clinching a playoff spot for the Nets in the process.
Russell added six rebounds, six assists, a block and a 3-pointer on 7-of-15 shooting as well. His emergence this season has been a huge reason that Brooklyn is ending its playoff drought and while he still needs some seasoning with the game's finer points, D'Lo's knack for making tough shots at key moments is going to make his team a thorn in the side of any Eastern Conference titan. The Nets have put together a pretty nice program over these last few years, and it's nice to see all that hard work rewarded with a spot in the dance.
