A triple double headlined by a franchise record 42 points will do that for a fella.
Milton Doyle, the Nets two-way player, averaged 29 points, 6.5 rebounds, 6.5 assists and shot 61.9 percent from three in two games, both wins, last week to earn his first G-League Player of the Week ... and the franchise’s first as well.
The highlight game vs. Raptors 905, at Nassau Coliseum last week when he hit 11-of-15 from deep, as shown in his highlight reel released by the league.
The Nets liked what the saw from the undrafted Loyola Chicago star last April at the Portsmouth Invitational for college seniors and signed him to a summer league deal. He averaged 10 points in four games and beat out Archie Goodwin for a camp invite.
One of the last players cut from training camp by Brooklyn, the 6’4” combo guard was assigned to Long Island where he put up big numbers, finally getting his two-way deal on December 18. For the season, he’s averaging 21.7 points, 5.4 rebounds and four assists in the G-League. He’s played in six NBA games as well, averaging three points, 1.5 rebounds and 0.7 assists in 10.5 minutes per game.
Long Island plays again February 21 vs. the Maine Red Claws at Nassau Coliseum.
