Breaking down the best and worst performances from the Spurs rookie during the NBA Restart

The 29th overall pick announced his arrival with averages of 14.1 points and 5.0 rebounds per game on 63.8% shooting over eight outings in the Orlando bubble, and he accumulated those numbers in just 26.1 minutes per game.
