LeBron & AD made their debuts for the Lakers in a win. Chicago’s Coby White was the star of the night on day six.

Immanuel Quickley: The Knicks rookie played energized off the bench and made some impressive passes. Ran the offense with confidence last night. 9 points, 7 assists 

Mitchell Robinson: The big man put up a double-double with 4 blocked shots on Wednesday. Started for New York and looked good on both ends. 13 points, 10 rebounds

Kevin Knox: Knox was able to score the ball in different ways against the Cavs. Ran the floor hard and knocked down shots from deep. 16 points, 3 3’s

Obi Toppin: New York’s #8 pick has moved without the ball extremely well during preseason. The rookie’s energy can always be counted on. 8 points, 7 rebounds

Isaac Okoro: Okoro hasn’t looked like a rookie at all early on for the Cavs. Shot selection and defense are at a high level already. 10 points, 2 3’s

Dean Wade: Wade is proving he can be a threat from three-point land. The Cleveland big man has a solid overall skillset. 9 points, 3 3’s

Dylan Windler: Windler makes some great cuts. Had an impressive give & go for an and-one. 11 points, 2 3’s

Marques Bolden: Bolden contributed with quality minutes for the Cavs in New York. The former Duke Blue Devil also had three blocks. 8 points, 5 rebounds

Coby White: White is locked in as the Bulls starting point guard after only starting in one game his rookie year. Expect the 20-year-old to have a nice season in 2021. 27 points, 5 3’s

Patrick Williams: The Bulls rookie started on Wednesday and fit right in. Moved well without the ball to score on efficient shots. 13 points, 7 rebounds

Chandler Hutchison: Hutchison has shown some energetic bounce in preseason. Big dunk last night. 11 points, 7 rebounds

Theo Maledon: Maledon has looked composed for a 19-year-old. OKC has a great young piece to work with. 11 points, 4 rebounds

Isaiah Roby: Roby plays the right way for the Thunder. Can score, rebound, and pass quite nicely. 9 points, 6 rebounds

Frank Jackson: Scoring the ball well for OKC in preseason. Started in 18 games for New Orleans from 2018-2020.  15 points, 3 3’s

Talen Horton-Tucker: The Laker had some strong drives against the Suns. Doing all the right things for LA in preseason. 18 points, 5 rebounds

Quinn Cook: Cook was actually waived by the Lakers, but re-signed in early December. The veteran is proving his worth since being back. 10 points, 4 assists

Mikal Bridges: Bridges is getting along great on the court with Chris Paul. The 24-year-old Sun has All-Defensive Team potential this season. 10 points, 3 assists

Jevon Carter: Carter looks improved on offense early on. Defense and shooting will continue to help the Suns. 15 points, 3 3’s

Derrick Jones Jr: Portland’s new high-flyer runs the floor hard every game. Versatile signing for the Trail Blazers this off-season. 8 points, 2 blocks

Enes Kanter: Kanter’s offense can always be counted on. Shot 6-8 from the field vs. the Nuggets. 14 points, 4 rebounds

PJ Dozier: Dozier shot the ball from three and made plays yesterday. Also had six rebounds and three assists. 15 points, 3 3’s

Monte Morris: Morris started in four games for Denver in the 2020 playoffs. The 25-year-old is a winner and underrated playmaker. 8 points, 4 assists

Bol Bol: Bol only played 6 minutes against the Trail Blazers, but stood out in a short time. Potential is very high for Denver’s future. 10 points, 6 rebounds
