Rookie Larry Nance Jr tied his season-high of 14 rebounds and scored 15 points against the his Dad’s first NBA team on Sunday. Those 15 points came on 7 of 10 shooting and 3 of those 7 were dunks we are becoming very used to seeing.
“He’s very poised when he’s out there,” Coach Byron Scott said. “Larry Sr., in all the years I played against him, we never saw him get rattled. He was one of those guys who was even-keeled all the way through the game, no matter if they were up or down. And Junior’s the same way. He has a lot of his dad in him, as far as his demeanor on the court.”
This is what Nance has done in the past 4 games he’s played 24+ minutes in.
