He should be able to get around 10 points and 7 as in 25 minutes.

His shoot is not falling, but keep in mind he's not completely fit and he was probably quite nervous.

He's an excellent shooter and his shot will come with increased familiarity with the NBA game.

He averaged 16/7 last year in the Euroleague in 27 minutes.

Bear in mind defense is much more physical out there, crowded paints, etc.

He should do fine with so many scorers and leapers in the Clips.

i've said it a while, but if (huge IF) Gallo and Blake each play 70+ games then Clippers will most likely make the playoffs

Milos-Bev-Gallo-Blake-Jordan with Lou as a 6th man... thats a great mix of offense and defense

and then you add solid+ bench players like Dekker, Rivers, Brice Johnson, Harrell

Milos is supposed to be horrible on D. He has to come off the bench. Beverley would have to start with Rivers I imagine

Milos is no worse than Lillard, Irving, Prime D-Will etc

Maybe just a bit, but you're right, the guy's playing the Euroleague FF every year under tremendous pressure (he doesn't exactly have a winning resume there), any game that comes before the playoffs is basically no pressure to him.

If he plays 25 minutes, he'll most likely be around 12/8, since he'd be running the second unit, which seems to be a fast paced group.

First game in a brand new setting. I'm sure he had some butterflies.

To be fair to Austin, the #MoaM & #MIP, he was coming off like 8 weeks of bed rest due to an illness. He played the most minutes to check conditioning most likely.

Not sure. Lou Williams isn't though and a proven 6th man so I would assume he starts. Beverley defends

Rubio is supposed to be great on D. Let you soon if I agree or not!

I know it is a 3 point league now but it seems it is getting out of hand. Ibaka took 9 3s and made only 1. It is a terrible basketball that everyone just standing behind the 3 point line and taking turns to hoist them. I would call this an archery basketball.
