This is a crazy performance. It’s right up there with Dalembert’s 35 points for the most unexpected, out-of-the-blue statline of the year. How does this even happen? And it’s not like the scorekeepers were preparing some nice delicious home-cooking. All of the assists were legit except for the penultimate one on the Miller layup.
It helps to have Ryan Anderson, but tons of these passes generated good looks at the basket. I’m stunned. He single-handedly dismantled the Nuggets, whose 15 game win streak is now crushed and mangled under his feet. Is this guy the next Chris Paul?
