Calvin Murphy on Jabari Smith: β€œLet me be honest about something. He’s got more talent than him (we’ve seen). I want to see him be more vocal. I want him to make his teammates realize ‘I’ve been out here the last 3-4 times down the floor and didn’t see the ball.’ Get me the ball.” – 7:41 PM

πŸ“… On this day in 1984, the @Utah Jazz‘s Adrian Dantley made 28 FT in a win over the Rockets, tying Wilt Chamberlain’s NBA single-game record.
It was one of three career games in which Dantley made at least 25 FT, the most such games in NBA history.

Ochai Agbaji told reporters last night he would not be on the team’s coming-game road trip, expecting to be assigned to the G League’s SLC Stars. Instead, Leandro Bolmaro is sent to the Stars.

I dove deep on Dyson Daniels’ defense today in Rookie Rankings. Daniels is absolutely unbelievable on defense. Teenagers should not be this good this fast on that end of the court.
