This is the game from Milos Teodosic and “Lob City 2.0” I’ve been waiting for!
On Tuesday, the 30-year old Clippers rookie — who always looks like he’s had one too many drinks the night before and dominated the preseason highlights with awesome and completely unnecessary passes — had his first double-digit assist game with 10 in a 122-95 beatdown on the Sacramento Kings. He also had 8 points and needed just 21 minutes to put up the numbers. The most impressive thing about those numbers is he only had 1 turnover.
Since his return two weeks ago, Milos is averaging 9.1 points, 5.4 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.7 turnovers while playing 25.9 minutes. The only thing about his stats that will make you mean mug a little is he’s shooting just 34% from the field and 28% from three. Then again, there’s a few other rookies with shooting percentages that look as bad as Milos’ shot…and beard.
Another rookie worth giving a shout out to is the Clippers 27-year old rookie Jamil Wilson. The international baller got the start and responded with a career-high 17 points.
“At the end of the day, it’s still basketball,” Wilson said. “The ball is still orange, the goal’s still 10 feet. You try to use that to bring everything down to Earth. I’ve been playing the game my whole life.”
You can scrub through the following video to find the Wilson highlights.
