Jimmer Fredette scored 26 points for the Nuggets on 9-of-18 shooting (including four threes) with two rebounds, three assists and two steals over 27 minutes in Saturday’s blowout win over the Grizzlies.
Jimmer has handled the spotlight and the various struggles in his NBA career as well as anybody can ask for. He works hard and has never given up when many players would start to pack it in. We’d love to see him make an NBA roster, but it wouldn’t be surprising if he didn’t. He has to find a way to stop the bleeding on the defensive end and also refine his offensive tools. Anything short of that and he’s unplayable for any real minutes.
