Former Illinois Prep Athletes and their NBA Performances- May 9 Recap

Sunday evening, fifteen former Illinois prep athletes saw minutes in a NBA game. Below I look into and share each of their NBA performances from May 9.

I may be wrong but 15 player might be the most for one day. If not, it’s definitely tied for the most.

Best of the day: Anthony Davis

The Brow is back. Lakers are not done yet.

  • Anthony Davis (Perspectives/Lakers)- 41 minutes, a game-high 42 points, 13/27 FG, 1/5 FG, 15/17 FT, 3 offensive rebounds, a game-high 12 rebounds, 5 assists, a team-high 3 steals (tied with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Alex Caruso), a game-high 3 blocks, and and a game-high +26 in a 123-110 win over the Suns.

The rest of the performances of the day:

  • Alfonzo McKinnie (Marshall/Lakers)- 3 minutes and -4 in a 123-110 win over the Suns.
