    Stuffing the stat sheet:


    15 pts (2nd on team), 6 rebounds (leads team), 3 assists, 0 turnovers

    Love watching this kid play.

    I love how he had the presence of mind to break for the post and get a quick pass from Scottie which became an easy jam to seal the game. TBH, I was still a bit worried until that moment. That was the dagger.

    I thought he had at least a couple of turnovers. He's efficient when he takes shots cause he always takes good shots. Sometimes you'd like to see him get more aggressive when the team goes into that drought.

    Also he needs to stop getting into early foul trouble. I don't think that was a problem today, but in the past he'll pick up a ticky tack foul and it'll be his 2nd in the 1st half and then he sits until the 2nd half. Just need to keep him in the game. Still I'm always amazed how he fills the stat sheet like today without me noticing during the game :D

    No TOs according to the stat line and only three PFs. That in itself is a great achievement for him. When you add in the rest it makes it an excellent overall game.

    Exactly. That has been his one glaring weakness this year (outside of perimeter shooting, but since he isn't taking jumpers he isn't eating up possessions with them), but he seemingly took good care of the ball today.

    My apologies to everyone else....but Prather is THE best player we have, bar none.

    Elite: Prather, Finney-Smith, Frazier
    Excellent: Young, Wilbekin, Yeguete
    Very good: Hill, D Walk, Kurtz

    Hidden Tiger/Crouching Dragon: C Walk

    What makes Prather's game today even more impressive is that apparently he's still suffering from his ankle sprain and did this all through pain. I hope his ankle will improve between now and the next game, so he can be as explosive as possible.

    Yes, I thought he had a bad pass in the first half (attempting a pass from around the foul line to DFS behind the defense on the right side of the baseline) when we had a glut of bad passes from several of our players. But, I agree that Prather had an excellent game.

    Young has upped his game. I call him Elite.
