VIDEO: Doug McDermott goes off for 31 points in Summer League

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

Bulls rookie forward Doug McDermott went off for 31 points Sunday night in Summer League play vs. the Nuggets. The Creighton star hit five three-pointers, and shot with confidence and a quick release.

Most of those shots are wide open, with the Nuggets defenders playing off, getting lost, and going under (!!!) screens vs. Doug McDermott. It's summer league, not like scouting reports are going to be great, but I mean, it's Doug McDermott. Hand down, man down fellas.

It's a good sign for the Bulls that he's shooting with confidence. We'll have to see if he can get the same looks against NBA opponents, and against opponents who apparently have an idea of what they're doing, but still, it's a promising sign for the rook.
