Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra praised undrafted rookie Orlando Robinson for his outstanding performance in last night’s 113-110 home win vs. the Minnesota Timberwolves (15 points/9 rebounds/4 assists/1 steal/1 block/7-9 FG/1-1 FT).
(via Bally Sports Sun):
“He was the player of the game. He’s the one that brought us in tonight. He’s very steady. Everybody’s coaching him, teaching him, screaming at him, yelling at him, directing him, and everything in between. He’s very stable. He can take the information, process it, and apply it. He really works every single day to be able to produce and be ready for these kind of moments. I would say arguably that he’s the most improved since summer league of all the guys that we’ve had. I think this is about his 3rd or 4th impactful game with his minutes. It doesn’t necessarily lead to these kind of stats, but it shows you he’s slowly earning the trust of the team.”
