It was a busy weekend for the Big East rookies in the NBA. Let’s jump right in.
Isaiah Whitehead - Brooklyn Nets
Whitehead saw eight minutes on the back end of a back-to-back where the Nets fell 110-108 to the Milwaukee Bucks. The former Seton Hall guard recorded three points and one assist as he continues to adjust to the next level.
Kris Dunn - Minnesota Timberwolves
Dunn had four points and four assists in nearly 20 minutes of action for Minnesota as they fell 106-103 to the Kings. He was also on the court for the final five minutes, which shows the early trust Tom Thibodeau has in the young point guard.
Daniel Ochefu - Washington Wizards
Henry Ellenson - Detroit Pistons
Semaj Christon - Oklahoma City Thunder
Whew. Thought we’d have three DNPs to write about, which wouldn’t have been good. Christon played 20 minutes and did a little bit of everything. He recorded five points, two assists, and two steals as the Thunder improved to 3-0 with a 113-96 victory over the Lakers.
