Former Illinois Prep Athletes and their NBA Performances- January 18 Recap

Monday evening, nine former Illinois prep athletes saw minutes in a NBA game. Below I look into and share each of their NBA performances from January 18.

Best Of The Day: Kendrick Nunn

Kendrick Nunn last season for a good portion was one of the hottest rookies in the game but has cooled off. The undrafted free agent pickup by the Miami Heat looked sharp in the team’s win over the Pistons on Monday. Nunn and the Heat are hoping he can deliver performances like he just had on a consistent basis.

  • Kendrick Nunn (Simeon/Heat)- 34 minutes, 18 points, 8/15 FG, 2/4 3PT, an offensive rebound, 5 total rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, a block, 2 turnovers, and +11 in a 113-107 win over the Pistons.

The rest of the performances of the day:

  • Andre Iguodala (Lanphier/Heat/)- 21 minutes, 4 points, 1/3 FG, 0/2 3PT, 2/2 FT, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals, a turnover, and +4 in a 113-107 win over the Pistons.
  • Derrick Rose (Simeon/Pistons)- 27 minutes, 22 minutes, 6/11 FG, 1/4 3PT, 8/9 FT, 3 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, 3 turnovers, and -6 in a 113-107 loss to the Heat.

  • John Konchar (West Chicago/Grizzlies)- 7 minutes, 4 points, 2/3 FG, an offensive rebound, 2 assists, a steal, and -1 in a 108-104 win over the Suns. This was Konchar’s first game since January 3.
  • Frank Kaminsky (Benet/Suns)- 13 minutes, 8 points, 3/7 FG, 2/3 3PT, 0/2 FT, an offensive rebound, 5 total rebounds, 2 blocks, a turnover, and -9 in a 108-104 loss to the Grizzlies. This was Kaminsky’s first game since January 1.

  • Jevon Carter (Proviso East/Suns)- 19 minutes, 8 points, 2/3 FG, 2/3 3PT, 2/2 FT, a rebound, an assist, TO, and +7 in a 108-104 loss to the Grizzlies. On the court or off the court, Carter is giving a boost to his teammates and team.

  • Robert Covington (Proviso West/Trail Blazers)- 29 minutes, 9 points, 4/8 FG, 1/5 3PT, 3 rebound, an assist, a turnover, 3 blocks, a turnover, and +2 in a 125-104 loss to the Spurs.
  • Fred VanVleet (Auburn/Raptors)- 34 minutes, 6 points, 2/10 FG, 1/6 3PT, 1/1 FT, 4 rebounds, 6 assists, 4 steals, 2 turnovers, and +18 in a 116-93 over the Mavericks. VanVleet must have the ultimate green light when it comes to shooting.

  • Anthony Davis (Perspectives/Lakers)- 37 minutes, 17 points, 6/16 FG, 0/1 3PT, 5/7 FT, 5 offensive rebounds, 17 total rebounds, 7 assists, 2 steals, 3 blocks, a turnover, and +12 in a 115-110 loss to the Warriors.
