Travel or foul? The refs probably should have called something on this circus shot by Brandon Ingram.
This tough bucket was Ingram’s only made one during his 19 minutes vs the Nuggets on Sunday. Although I’m not concerned about his shooting from the field (1 of 2 on Sunday and 3 of 15 after 3 games), I am a little concerned about his free throw shooting: He was 3 of 6 in his first 2 games and missed 4 of 6 on Sunday. This is very odd considering Ingram never missed a free throw during his high school career (he actually missed 105 while shooting 77%),
While his shot isn’t falling yet, he has been exceptional on D and had 3 blocks on Sunday, pushing his average to 2 a game in just 21 minutes per. So once Ingram finds his touch, you are going to see why so many people are labeling him KD 2.0.
