Sampson tallied 32 points (11-20 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 7-7 FT), six rebounds, two assists and a block in Sunday's game against the Red Claws.
Sampson pieced together a decent shooting day and finished with the team lead in points scored, but it wasn't enough to hand his team the victory. Windy City would fall 121-113 after getting outscored 35-23 in the final quarter of play. The 6-5 guard continues to impress this season in the G League, boosting his scoring average to 17.9 ppg through 31 contests (30 starts) this year.
One of Chicago's two-way players, Sampson has seen most of his action with the G League's Windy City Bulls since signing with the team in late December. However, with five players sitting out Wednesday, Sampson was able to dress for the NBA team and made his debut early in the second quarter. This was a decent showing for Sampson, but he'll have a tough time sticking in the rotation Saturday in Charlotte if Zach LaVine (ankle) is back for that contest.
Sampson put up 28 points (9-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 7-7 FT), six rebounds, four assists and a steal in 40 minutes of playing time during Windy City's 118-109 loss to the Herd on Wednesday.
Sampson shot well in the first half, scoring 17 of his 28 points and connecting on all three of his three-point attempts in the first 24 minutes. That hot start seemed to wear off in the second half as Sampson only scored four points in the final frame, but that was still enough to lead his team in scoring.
Sampson (undisclosed) did not play in Friday's win over the Bayhawks.
Sampson played 32 minutes in each of Windy City's previous two games so it's clear whatever is ailing the forward didn't occur during a recent contest. He'll attempt to take the court Saturday.
Given Chicago's recent injury woes, there's a good chance Sampson could see time with the Bulls. He's been racking up the points in the G League of late, pouring in 21 points Thursday against Long Island.
