D'Angelo Russell's career night

D’Angelo Russell had himself a first quarter Tuesday night.

The former Ohio State standout made his first 7 shots — all 3-pointers — to open the game en route to 24 first-quarter points. That was 60 percent of the Brooklyn Nets scoring in the first frame against the Toronto Raptors.

Russell finished the quarter 7 of 8 from beyond the arc and 7 of 9 from the floor overall. It was the most he’s ever scored in a quarter in his career.

DLo finessed 24 points in that short span. He pulled up for an eighth 3-point shot not 40 seconds later, missed, and was immediately subbed out by Kenny Atkinson. Hot streak, cold world. Russell finished with 32; Brooklyn lost, 116-102.
