The rest of the team continue to struggle offensively, Austin Rivers normally a sparkplug off the bench only contributed 6 point in tonight’s game. One bright spot was Mitchell Robinson played over 30 mins with no fouls and 11 points.
Rookie Immanuel Quickly normally a bright spot off the bench has struggled in his last three outings. It appears he’s still not fully recovered from his the hip pointer he suffered earlier this season. Quickly provided 4 points off the bench.
