DMC and Acy Bring the Energy
DeMarre Carroll definitely had his motor running all game. Carroll lived up to the “Junkyard Dog 2.0” nickname he earned in Toronto by almost hustling his way into a season-high 26 points. So many different ways did Carroll find to scrape together those 26 points too.
Carroll made three of his five jumpers from beyond the arc. He feasted on weak closeouts from the Miami bigs. DMC converted turnovers into quick fastbreak points. Carroll even found himself nabbing four offensive rebounds. Carroll served as a beacon of consistency while the usual scorers RHJ, Dinwiddie, Crabbe, and LeVert ran hot and cold.
