After scoring just two points in his first game, Schilb scored 16 in his second, and now put up an impressive 25-point performance in his last outing. Schilb hasn’t really quelled any doubts about his athleticism or quickness here, but the small forward/point forward had a very strong game, showing off his versatile skill-set.

Schilb hit three 3-pointers on the game, boasting good shooting form and a decently quick release. He made one buzzer-beater here to close the second half, which was actually a bit of a runner from 30 feet out. Schilb also did some scoring around the hoop, showing off some nice creativity on his lay-ups, hitting a nice baseline reverse, a floater from five feet out that he was also fouled on, a finger-roll in transition, and a dunk over an opposing guard. He also had two nice post-up moves, taking advantage of his smaller opponents, one of which he backed down his man for a lay-up and the other which he posted up from 10 feet away on the baseline, turned, and swished a smooth fadeaway jumper. He didn’t show off much in terms of dribble creation, and that doesn’t seem like something he’d excel at against this level of competition, as his dribble isn’t especially low to the ground and he doesn’t possess good quickness, leaving him vulnerable to poke-aways, which happened a couple of times today. He averaged four assists in college, playing a bit of a point forward role, but didn’t show off much passing game here, as he seems like more of an opportunity passer as opposed to someone who can create via dribble penetration.

Schilb would have a tough time making an NBA roster with his quickness concerns, but he has an interesting skill-set and he does quite a few things well, which should get him invited to the Orlando camp again (he attended last season) and possibly a training camp. If he can’t make it in the NBA, he should be a nice complementary player somewhere in Europe.
