Watch D’Angelo Russell drop 31 on Kings (with 11 dimes) in Laker loss

The Lakers’ D’Angelo Russell is quickly starting to come into his own as a very dangerous pick-and-roll point guard.

Thursday night in Las Vegas he also showed a very nice catch-and-shoot touch on his way to scoring 31 points on 10-of-14 shooting for the night, including 5-of-6 from three. He also dropped 11 dimes. From Summer League through the preseason the former No. 2 pick has shown real development into a point guard who can score off the pick-and-roll in a variety of ways — stepping back for the three, pushing into the lane and using a floater, plus his drive-and-kick game is strong.

And he’s just 20.

The Kings won the game with Darren Collison’s 20 points leading six Kings in double figures.
