Minutes before tipoff at Smoothie King Center, NBA great Reggie Miller who was commentating the game on TNT, was asked what he thought of Doncic’s heroics early in the season. “I am not surprised. He is into that elite conversation and probably in a lot of circles the best point guard in the game.
The question is who is going to check him tonight. As we go to the lineups, Jrue Holiday is in my opinion one of the best two-way players, and certainly defensive guards will get the assignment early. He has strong hands, number two in steals with 2 per game, it’s going to be a terrific matchup!” said Miller.
