Nemanja Nedovic may not be seeing much action in the NBA, but he’s getting all the minutes he can handle in the D-League with the Santa Cruz Warriors, the Golden State Warriors’ affiliate.
Nedovic scored 31 points on 9-of-12 shooting and made all four of his three-point attempts, helping the Warriors defeat the Austin Toros in Santa Cruz on Sunday night. He also added three assists and a steal in 35 minutes of action.
The Warriors first round draft pick was sent down to Santa Cruz along with Dewayne Dedmon after the team’s loss to the Trail Blazers on Saturday. They should be rejoining the big club for their upcoming five-game road trip that beings on Tuesday in New Orleans.
In 11 games this season in the NBA, Nedovic is averaging 1.1 points and 5.5 minutes of action per game. With the Warriors’ bench shorthanded at the moment, head coach Mark Jackson has said that he is willing to give Nedovic more playing time should he deserve it.
Also playing for the Santa Cruz Warriors in Sunday night’s game were Seth Curry and Mychel Thompson, the brothers of Warriors guards Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Their younger brothers finished with 11 and nine points, respectively, and Seth Curry added 12 assists.
According to Examiner.com, Stephen Curry and Warriors owner Joe Lacob were both at the game.
