Following Tuesday’s 108-103 road win vs. the Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Clippers head coach Ty Lue compared Norman Powell to 2x NBA champ Vinnie ‘The Microwave’ Johnson (27 points/4 rebounds/4 assists/2 steals/7-11 FG/3-7 3-PT/10-10 FT).
(via JER – Sports Journalist):
“He’s instant offense, like Vinnie Johnson. Just comes in the game, and he can get it going quick. He can get to the free throw line, he can make threes, he can attack downhill, get to the basket. So he was huge for us tonight. I think his scoring with that small unit really helped us get back in that game, and to be down I think 4 at halftime, that was huge after being down 19. So his play was really good off the bench, and it has been for a while.”
