Russell finished with 30 points (12-22 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists, three rebounds and one steal across 30 minutes during Wednesday's 140-131 loss to the Pacers.
Russell wasted no time establishing himself as the No. 1 option on his new team, taking 22 shots. He took 20-plus shots just six times last season, so this development is certainly encouraging for those who took a chance on the third-year guard. Depending on how serious Jeremy Lin's (knee) injury is, Russell could also see a significant bump in value moving forward.
Russell recorded 24 points (9-20 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-7 FT), three assists, two steals, and one rebound in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 133-114 loss to the 76ers.
Russell seems set to fill up the box score for the uptempo Nets this season, and this was his best scoring performance in a Brooklyn uniform to date. Russell and company now have a week off before beginning the regular season on the road against a Pacers team that doesn't project to be very stingy defensively.
Russell posted 16 points (7-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT). seven assists, three rebounds, three steals and a blocked shot in Sunday's 117-83 win over the Knicks,
Russell filled every category in the stat line Sunday (including a team-high four turnovers) in a convincing victory. Russell and the new-look Nets won this battle of the NBA basement, and with the former Laker helming the team, they might actually find their way out of the darkness. He shot a solid 50 percent from the floor on Sunday and though his shot has been a bit erratic he's looked sharp and in control of the offense. It might be a stretch to call him a Top 10 guard at this point, but he certainly has enough upside to be close.
Russell posted nine points (4-14 FG, 1-7 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists, two steals and four turnovers across 25 minutes during Thursday's 107-88 win over the Heat.
Russell had a great preseason debut Tuesday, but couldn't find a rhythm Thursday, failing to shoot efficiently and committing four turnovers across just 25 minutes. Regardless, he'll likely begin the season as the team's starting point guard after being dealt to Brooklyn over the summer from the Lakers. He posted 15.6 points, 4.8 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.4 steals across 28.7 minutes per game during 2016-17.
Russell recorded 19 points (7-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four assists, two rebounds, two steals and a blocked shot across 20 minutes in Tuesday's 115-107 preseason win over the Knicks.
As expected, Russell and Jeremy Lin helmed the backcourt for the Nets with both players taking turns at the 1 and 2 spots. The former Laker is settling in nicely in his new home as he led the team in both points and assists. It looks like Coach Kenny Atkinson is going all-in with Russell as a focal point of the offense, giving the third-year guard a considerable boost in value for fantasy owners.
