Nuggets go up against the Wizards for the 1st time this season in DC. Wizards have lost John Wall for the season, so the only threat is Bradley Beal, who is having a great season. -
Baller of the Night goes to James Harden! Harden could not get a win for his team but he put up outstanding numbers. We start to take Hardens performances for granted but he is one of the best just pure scorers in the game.
Overlooked Player of the Night goes to Lauri Markkanen! He was able to put up 32 points and 13 rebounds in a tough win over the Wizards in OT. Lauri doesn’t get the recognition that he deserves as one of the best young players in the league.
Donovan also said:
“He’s a great defender. He was one of the hardest guys I had to go against last year. He came in in the second half and shut me down when we played here. So he’s a talented player and once he starts figuring it out on the offensive end, he’ll be a really good player”
