Rodions Kurucs scored 15 points in Sunday's win over Croatia, going 6-of-8 from the field with a pair of 3-pointers in 23 minutes of work.
Kurucs did what he should've against inferior competition, and it's going to be an important season for him with Kevin Durant looming in the distance. Kurucs needs to put his stamp on a rotation spot this year before things get even more crowded down the line. Jarrett Allen struggled a bit with four points on 1-of-5 shooting but did add seven boards, a steal and two blocks. Dzanan Musa grinded his way to 15 points despite shooting 3-of-10 overall. We'll see how the Nets fare against NBA competition in their next game.
