Mike Scott is coming off the bench again for Game 3 on Friday.
Advice: Coach Scott Brooks explained the move to keep Scott in the second unit. "We need to counter their bench attack and Mike has been a big part of that," Brooks said. He's hit 27 minutes in each of the last two games with a 20-point game coming in Game 2. Expect him to get minutes in the 20s again and he could close, especially if the Wizards are trailing.
Mike Scott scored 12 points Friday on 4-of-4 shooting as the Washington Wizards topped the Toronto Raptors 122-103. Scott pulled down three rebounds and had two assists, tallying a plus-minus of +13 in his 28:06 of playing time. He added one steal. Scott went 2 of 2 from behind the arc.
Mike Scott scored 12 points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointesr in 26 minutes off the bench against the Raptors on Friday.
Advice: Coach Scott Brooks said he wanted Scott out there in the second unit to combat the Toronto bench mob, and he came through with a +13 in plus-minus. Scott should continue to see minutes in the upper 20s and he may even see more run if Markieff Morris is in trouble for touching a ref.
Coach Scott Brooks said Mike Scott "might" replace Marcin Gortat in the first unit.
Advice: "Who knows?" Brooks said. "He might be a starting five [option]." The Wizards are not getting much out of Gortat these days, but that would be a major switch for their offense because of how many 1-5 pick-and-roll plays they run with Gortat and John Wall. Scott is coming off a 20-point game, but changing roles could alter his efficiency.
Mike Scott scored 20 points Tuesday on 7-of-10 shooting as the Washington Wizards lost to the Toronto Raptors 130-119. Scott pulled down four rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +13 in his 27:19 on the floor. Scott went 4 of 5 from behind the arc.
Mike Scott erupted for 20 points with four rebounds, one assist and four triples in Tuesday's loss to Toronto, shooting 7-of-10 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line.
Advice: John Wall was the only starter that played more than 30 minutes and the second unit pretty much kept this game from getting out of hand. The Wizards weren't getting anything from Marcin Gortat (zero points in 12 minutes), so the Wizards went small for most of the evening. Scott has now played 27 minutes in back-to-back games and it's clear that he's going to have a big role in this series. He can expect to get a raise this summer.
