Derek Fisher – on Horton-Tucker: “This young man really knows how to play basketball.”
Lakers legend Derek Fischer shared his thoughts on Tailen Horton-Tucker after the 20-year-old defender scored 33 points in a victorious pre-season against the Clippers.
“It’s difficult to judge a player based on preseason matches. I think the comments of teammates and coaches say a little more about him.
Anyone in the NBA can score 30 points in a preseason game if they play 30+ minutes. So I don’t understand the hype about statistics.
But his teammates and coaches are not just creating hype. This young man really knows how to play basketball, and I think no one expected this, because we did not see him often last season, ”Fischer said to Spectrum SportsNet.
