In an interview with the media on Thursday, local time, Rockets coach uduka talked about the team’s second grade player Jabari Smith.
“When young Jabari Smith can enter the game, it can obviously open up more space for us. But so far, he has not reached the level at the beginning of the season, which will bring some burden to others,” uduka said.
“When he does what he does on the court, shooting, rebounding, defense and assists are all extra rewards. I like his initiative,” uduka continued.
Since the new season, little Jabari Smith can contribute 12.8 points, 7 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1 steals and 0.3 blocks in an average of 31.8 minutes, with a shooting percentage of 44.7% and a three-point shooting percentage of 30.4%.
