Russ Smith had 8 points and 8 assists in his first Summer League game, 14 points and 7 assists in the 2nd and in his 3rd he had a team-high 20 points including a game-winner in “Sudden Death” OT.
Smith also connected on 9 of 12 shots vs the Magic on Tuesday.
You might (probably wont) remember Russ going off against the Warriors in the 4th quarter of a blowout near the end of the last season. He scored a career-high 16 and helped give the Warriors a scare when the Grizzlies scored 40 points in the final quarter.
