D’Angelo Russell Season Review: Brooklyn’s Budding Star
There was then a game on March 13 against Toronto when Russell exploded for 32 points and dropped in threes like he was throwing rocks off of Coney Island’s pier. We also can’t forget his 18-point, 13-assist, 11-rebound triple-double back on March 23.
The common thread between those games was that Russell thrives in a run-and-gun style. His consistency will come later. To continue to build this foundation, though, it’s critical that he shows some semblance of stability and understanding in his role.
Most of those performances, unfortunately, came before knee surgery that kept Russell on the sideline from November 14 to January 17.
