D’Angelo Russell (shin) scored 14 points and hit just 6-of-18 shots in Wednesday’s loss to the Suns, but managed to post one trey, two boards, three assists, one steal and two blocks in his 31 minutes.
Russell has a knack for producing across the box score and that will serve him well down the road. He should be locked into lineups going forward, but like tonight owners should be expecting some slowdowns whenever the Kobe Bryant Farewell Tour hits a fever pitch. Jordan Clarkson (13 points, 5-of-14 FGs, one three, three boards, two assists, 30 minutes) is in the same boat, and to a lesser degree so is Lou Williams (11 points, two threes, two boards, five assists, one steal) and Marcelo Huertas (eight points, two boards, 15 minutes).
