Tyler Herro proved he is set to get bigger roles with 21 points, 15 rebounds, and four assists. Goran Dragic came off the bench with 26 points while newcomer Avery Bradley gave the team 16 points.

Tim Hardaway Jr. is the best player for the team doing 18 points and Jalen Brunson tried to fill in the void with 16 points, five rebounds, and four assists from the bench.
