Kendall Marshall fans have to be pleased with the impressive debut from their NC boy. Marshall won "player of the game" honors and put up an impressive stat line. He played 31 minutes and dropped eight assists but more importantly, was aggressive getting his shot. He pumped in 21 points on 7-18 shooting, including 6-8 from the line.
Marshall will get more run Tuesday night. The Jam take on the L.A. Defenders.
Here's highlights of the game via the D-league.
Suns rookie Kendall Marshall is with the Bakersfield Jam getting some D-league run. Here's the updates.
The Great Marshall Debate of 2012 will be resolved on Monday night. Kendall will take the floor for the Jam and either prove his potential (future) greatness as an NBA point guard or he will show his detractors that the Suns screwed up by drafting him 13th overall.
The meaning of this game is minimal but it is a good chance to see him in live action and it is important for his development to play well in the D-league. One game won't answer the questions about Marshall but at least it's actual information and not just more bias'd speculation from his lovers and haters.
Game date/time: Monday, December 3, 8 p.m. AZT / 10 p.m. ET
Location: Jam Events Center, Bakersfield, California
