D’Angelo Russell was terrific in Tuesday’s loss to the Cavs, shooting 9-of-18 and scoring 25 points to go with five rebounds, six assists, two steals, three triples and just one turnover in 32 minutes of action.
Russell was great in this one and seems to be finding his footing as a shooting guard. It hasn’t really hurt him as a distributor, and it looks like the Nets have stumbled upon a starting backcourt that could be a permanent fix. While he’ll probably fall short of his ADP considering the huge chunk of games he spent on the sidelines, Russell is posting top-75 value over the last two weeks and is poised to finish strong. He could be a shutdown risk but the Nets might want to get him as many reps as possible considering the missed time.
