This Sunday night, against the Raptors, he still stalled 31 points to 11/18 shooting, in addition to 7 rebounds and 7 assists. A usual performance for him on this exercise, but he was helped by James Harden.

Yes, things are better for the Bearded Man who finishes with 28 units at 10/20 shooting, with the added bonus of 10 rebounds and 8 distilled assists. It is not yet perfect of course, but we feel the best for Brooklyn, which brings its record to 7-3. In the end, it was a solid victory over Toronto with a score of 116-103.

A favorite for the rookie of the year? KD thinks so!

But for the franchise of Canada, despite this defeat, there are some satisfactions. Fred VanVleet is ramping up, Pascal Siakam is back with 15 units, while Scottie Barnes’ performance impresses. He compiles 8 points at 4/7 shooting certainly, but accumulates 7 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals! Defensively, his activity was remarkable, as here on Harden.

Barnes is already 17.6 points, 8.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists this season with Toronto, he who is the favorite to win the title of rookie of the year. A name to follow closely, and which marked the spirits of KD:
