The NBA Summer League is underway, and no player scored 30 points in a game until last night when former Michigan standout Ignas Brazdeikis absolutely went off.

A second round pick of the New York Knicks, Iggy scored 30 points on 11-of-19 shooting with 3 three-pointers and 8 rebounds.

The Summer League is all about development, and Brazdeikis is showing flashes of what will make him a good pro. Iggy may not be able to do it all, but he can do a lot. Brazdeikis speed is top notch, his defensive skills are above average, he’s a reliable rebounder, and he can drain 3’s when he gets cooking. All of these attributes were on display Sunday night.

I’m always aggressive. I always make plays. It doesn’t matter what stage I’m on. To me it’s all the same. It’s just basketball. That’s all it is at the end of the day,” Brazdeikis said after the game. “I’m just grateful to be a New York Knick. I don’t want to go nowhere else. It’s a great spot.”
