D’Angelo Russell was efficient tonight on his way to a 26-point outing with four rebounds and four assists, going 9-of-17 from the field and 4-of-8 from deep in Sunday’s 97-120 loss to the Sixers.
Russell has not been a paragon of efficiency since returning to the starting lineup eight games ago. He is shooting 42 percent from the field, but averaging 15.4 points, 2.6 threes and 6.0 assists in that span. Know that he won’t always be as efficient as he was tonight, but the upside is clearly there to turn in big performances.
