Ish Smith took advantage of another start on Friday, guiding the Pistons to a big win with 15 points, five rebounds and eight assists.
Smith continues to play well as a starter and might be putting more heat on the injured Reggie Jackson. The oft-inefficient guard connected on seven of his 10 shots tonight and hit his only triple, so this was about as good as it gets when you consider he committed only one turnover in 27 minutes. Smith has deep league appeal as a steals and dimes guy but would push close to the top-100 if he ever got the starting gig, whether that’s via trade, injury or a regular depth chart switch.
