Offensive MVP: Jimmer Fredette
Jimmer Fredette. What else can you say?
The man shot 45 percent from the field and 7-16 from three over three games. If you take out his first game, which had far too many guards playing, he’s been the best player on the court for the Nuggets.
In games two and three Fredette exploded out of the gate. He was looking to score at all costs and was staying efficient while being aggressive. He scored 26 points against the Grizzlies and then added in another 18 against the Heat. Jimmer was scoring at the rim, all the way out to the three-point line, and everywhere in between.
While Jimmer is still searching for another opportunity at the NBA level he does bring a skill with him that is more highly valued than ever before: shooting.
Look for more of the same out of Fredette over the coming tournament games.
