Keldon Johnson put on a show in the Spurs’ loss to the Grizzlies

New, comments

On a night that the Spurs collectively struggled, Keldon Johnson, the second year Boy Wonder, stood out by leading the team in scoring and rebounds for a double-double (25 and 10, respectively). DeMar DeRozan also contributed 14 points, 6 assists, and 5 rebounds. Patty Mills continued his hot shooting from deep, connecting 3 of 5 three-point attempts to go with his 11 points for the night.

KJ notched his 5th double-double of the season tonight. If he keeps this up, someone might mistake him for an All-Star—well future All-Star, hopefully!
