Jabari Parker posted a team-high 19 points in Friday's preseason finale, also logging a team-high 32 minutes.
If moving Parker to the bench was a motivational tactic, it certainly seemed to work as he hit three triples and was 7-of-11 from the field. After looking fairly lethargic throughout the preseason, Parker was notably more engaged in this one. We'll see if it was enough to save his starting job — both out of the gate and once Lauri Markkanen returns. He's only a late-round pick.
