Donovan Mitchell reacts to James Wiseman’s Christmas Day performance
On Friday, James Wiseman, number two overall, put in another strong performance when the Golden State Warriors took on the Milwaukee Bucks in their second game on Christmas Day.
Wiseman scored 18 points, eight rebounds and three blocks in a 138-99 loss when the Warriors fell to 2-0 earlier in the season. His performance was one of the few bright spots as the Warriors left much of the competition behind and fell back by as much as 43 points.
The 19-year-old became the Warriors' second highest scorer with 19 points, just behind Stephen Curry. Wiseman shot 5-of-11 off the field, including 3-of-4 from 3-point range, showing off all of the tools in his pocket, from his ability to run the ground to his movements in the post.
The performance even caught the attention of Utah Jazz Guardian Donovan Mitchell, who posted his assessment on Twitter during the matchup.
Wiseman has had a great start with the Warriors this season and looked like the runner-up overall in every way.
Perhaps most impressive is that Wiseman showed little rust after missing the start of training camp and preseason. His game numbers only improve the more he plays and are getting used to his new teammates on the field, which could be scary for the rest of the league.
