Kris “The Dunnwich Horror” Dunn is playing so well right now that it’s easy to forget that he actually played like total garbage his rookie year, even though he had a long college career and was supposed to come into the league further along in his development than his draftmates. Every time I watch him play, I have to remind myself, “this is the same guy who couldn’t outplay Tyus Jones for backup point guard minutes in Minnesota”. The Dunn of this year, who is legitimately starting-caliber, is nothing like the Dunn of last year.
I would say something snide about how it took him twenty shots to get nineteen points, and I guess I just did sort of say a snide thing by mentioning it, but he’s just taking his opportunity to be the man. When Zach LaVine gets back, Dunn will no longer be the man, so he has to get shots up while there are still shots to be had. If he shot thirty of them and only made ten, I think I would be fine with that. He should try it and see what happens.
