Los Angeles Lakers guard Austin Reaves’ excellent performance for Team USA at the FIBA World Cup in the Phillipines should have Lakers fans excited.
Reaves is certainly making an impression on his teammates.
“Austin plays great every night, there’s nothing new,” Anthony Edwards said, via NBA reporter Joe Viray. “He’s a hooper, man, there’s nothing surprising.”
Reaves, who scored eight points in a 110-62 win Wednesday against Jordan, has demonstrated these traits at the tournament, scoring in a variety of ways — from spot-up shooting and off-ball movement to isolation situations. He also has easily broken down defenders one-on-one and attacked the basket or found an open man.
Against Jordan in Manila, he reached deep into his bag for a step-back three-pointer as the shot slock was winding down.
