Undrafted rookie Scotty Pippen Jr. led the way for Los Angeles in its latest win by filling the stat sheet with 18 points, eight assists and three steals.
In Murray’s debut, he went for 26 points and eight rebounds on 10-14 shots (4-5 on three) and followed that up with nine points and nine rebounds because the shots weren’t coming down so easily (4-15 shots, 1- 7 out of three) and the defense was more focused on their game.
Rounding out Murray in the paint is sophomore big man Neemias Queta, who is averaging 13 points and five rebounds in two games.
On the other hand, it’s a great opportunity for Pippen to shine on a roster that could feature another player Los Angeles can use next season in Mac McClung.
Pippen is averaging 14.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 5.5 assists in his two games.
