James Harden stole the spotlight in the Houston Rockets 105-96 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night, but Mizzou hoops fans will be happy to know a former Tiger also had a good night in his NBA debut.
Former Mizzou star Kim English, who was selected in the second round of this past season's NBA draft, made his NBA debut for the Detroit Pistons and played well in the defeat.
English came off the Detroit bench and played 14 minutes, scoring eight points on three of six shooting. English, known for his prolific outside shooting touch, made two of his four attempts from beyond the arc.
English also showed some ability to make plays and play defense, tabbing three assists while collecting two thefts as well.
It was a very nice debut for English, who looks to build his resume and establish a role off the bench for the Pistons this season.
