Ish Smith had a solid game in Thursday’s loss to the Magic with 18 points, seven boards, five assists, a steal and a block.
Smith has been great as a fill-in starter for the injured Reggie Jackson (ankle). With Jackson out for 6-8 weeks, expect more games similar to this from Smith. He’s not much of a 3-point threat but he does bring some dimes and solid shooting from the field for his owners. He’s a career 41.7 percent shooter from the field, but has improved it to 46.9 percent this season.
