No Jeremy Lamb. No problem.
The Tulsa 66ers defeated the Erie BayHawks by a final score of 105-95 last night, thanks in large part to Andy Rautins’ hot shooting. In 34 minutes, Rautins scored 28 points and made a career-high eight three pointers, which tied a 66ers franchise record. And these weren’t just open three’s. Rautins was hitting them from the parking lot. He had defenders draped all over him. He was simply on fire.
There’s no two ways about it, Rautins is as pure of a shooter as they come. On the season, he is only trailing Darius Rice for the most made three’s in the D-League by two. Rautins has played one less game than Rice and has attempted 52 less three’s. On average, Rautins connects on 3.4 three’s per game – tied for the most in the league. He is also shooting 43.8% from beyond the arc – the second best percentage out of players who’ve attempted more than 100 three’s.
Basically, if you’re looking to add a shooter to your roster, Rautins is the man for the job.
