Ish Smith scored just five points on Friday night, going 2-for-8 from the field and chipping in five assists in 32 minutes.
Smith hasn’t provided much consistency lately, and this was his second straight game with five or fewer points (though the last one was blowout-aided). Backup Dwight Buycks was able to post 12 points, a triple and a steal in 21 minutes and is a definite deep league option now that he’s clearly ahead of Jameer Nelson in the rotation. Despite Smith’s ups and downs, he remains a decent late-round point guard given his locked-in starting role.
