Taurean Prince was electrifying on Sunday evening, delivering a career-best outing with 38 points, six rebounds, seven assists, seven 3-pointers and a steal while shooting 11-of-18 from the field and 9-of-10 from the free throw line.
Prince might’ve been ticked about being benched in the last game. Whether that was the Hawks tanking or coach Bud pushing buttons, Prince responded in a big way with a truly sublime outing. The points and threes were a career-high and he was pretty quiet in the steals and blocks departments, which are where he usually excels despite shortcomings elsewhere. While he’s been a top-100 player from wire-to-wire excepting a couple small bumps in the road, we keep seeing some silly “Drop Prince for X?” questions out there. Hopefully this performance squashes those ideas once and for all.
