If you are doubting the highlight-worthiness of this performance, I’ll leave you with this fact: this is the second most points Denzel Valentine has scored in a real life regular-season NBA game against real life NBA defenders who were actually trying to stop him.
I know! It surprised me as well. For winning all those awards his last year in college, he sure doesn’t score the ball very well at all. Can Bulls fans shed some light on this matter? What’s the deal? His shot form looks pretty good to me. If I had to guess, I’d say that he’s the kind of player who needs lots of minutes to gain confidence, and those minutes are only just starting to trickle in. But that’s just a guess, for all I know he could be total irredeemable trash who only gets minutes because GarPax is panicking that they blew another first rounder.
