Robinson came out with guns a blazing in the third game of the day, knocking down a barrage of shots to finish the first quarter with 16 points, and eventually ending up with 34 points. He showed the strengths he brings to the table, mainly his fundamentals, smarts and ability to run a team effectivelyalthough you can tell that the chemistry he enjoys with Desmon Farmer is not great and his turnovers are up substantially this season.
Hes also a physical guy who plays tough defensehis 6-8 wingspan helps quite a bit-- and is very solid on this end as you would expect from a former Bill Self point guard. Hes not the quickest or most explosive player youll find, particularly in his ability to finish plays around the rim (he makes just 44% of his 2-point attempts), but the fact that his perimeter shooting has improved substantially-- both from what we saw today and in the fact that hes shooting 40% from beyond the NBA 3-point linehelps his cause substantially. He did a good job in training camp with the Cavs this past October, and will likely get more looks as the season moves on.
