Former Illinois Prep Athletes and their NBA Performances- February 12 Recap

Friday evening, eleven former Illinois prep athletes saw minutes in a NBA game. Below I look into and share each of their NBA performances from February 12.

Best of the Day: Anthony Davis

The Grizzlies were up 20 points on the Lakers early in the first quarter. But failed to contain Anthony Davis and LeBron James which saw their lead turn into a deficit.

  • Anthony Davis (Perspectives/Lakers)- 35 minutes, 35 points, 16/27 FG, 0/3 3PT, 3/4 FG, 3 offensive rebounds, 8 total rebounds, an assist, 2 steals, a block, 3 turnovers, and +0 in a 115-106 win over the Grizzlies.

The rest of the performances of the day:

  • Talen Horton-Tucker (Simeon/Lakers)- 6 minutes, 0/2 FG, a rebound, a turnover, and -6 in a 115-106 win over the Grizzlies.
  • Alfonzo McKinnie (Marshall/Lakers)- 2 minutes, 2 points, 1/2 FG, 0/1 3PT, a rebound, and -7 in a 115-106 win over the Grizzlies.
