Bucks coach Scott Skiles endured Jrue Holiday on Monday. Then he suffered through Ty Lawson on Tuesday. Well, those two young point guards will face off here in Philadelphia tonight.
Asked if these are two of the NBA’s top blossoming point guards, Skiles said, “I think it’s fair to say. Both guys have improved. Holiday, we didn’t have much of an answer for him. As I said after the game, he played a very under-control game. Ty is a little more explosive with his end-to-end speed. He’s a penetrator and a very strong finisher at the rim. They’ve both improved, for sure.”
The 76ers guard is playing splendid basketball this season, averaging 15 points per game and 4.4 assists for the 10-3 squad. Against Skiles’ Bucks, Jrue scored a season-high 24 points with five assists and five steals.
“He’s very good – very good,” Nuggets coach George Karl said of the 6-4 guard. “He’s big and I love big points guards. And he’s making shots.”
