D'Angelo Russell came out of the gates hot on Tuesday as the Brooklyn Nets took on the Eastern Conference-leading Toronto Raptors.
Like, seven 3-pointers in 6:40 of game clock hot.
Russell, who is shooing just 30.8 percent from beyond the arc this season, is not known as a 3-point threat. Still, something about playing against the Raptors seemed to motivate him.
Russell cooled off in the second half, but that’s still an impressive showing from the young Nets guard.
Toronto eventually pulled out the win, 116-102. Russell finished with 32 points on 10-of-22 shooting, going 7-of-12 from downtown.
