McDermott scored 25 points (8-16 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, and one assist over 29 minutes in Thursday's win over the Nets.

McDermott has gone over the 20-point threshold in the last three games, and seems to be infringing on Mike Dunleavy's role as the starting small forward. Though it seems coach Fred Hoiberg is content to deploy the second-year man in a reserve role, McDermott seems like a fair bet to flirt with 30 minutes most nights while he continues to shoot efficiently. He's knocked down 23-of-37 shots from the field (62.1%) and 12-of-19 (63.1%) from three-point range over that three-game stretch.
