Shake is likely involved in a trade to Houston so Harden can get moved

I'll take Shake in Houston. Pair him with Sterling Brown in the second unit and the two can wreak havoc on the league. He already made me some money this week with sales of his rookie card.

Shake finishes with 19 points in 29 minutes on 6-11 shooting, 5-7 FTs, 3 assists and 3 steals. Pretty good opening game for Shake as his Sixers beat the Wizards 113-107

From Brad Botkin/CBS NBA writer:

Thank the basketball gods for Shake Milton.

I don't know if it's more encouraging how well Milton played on Wednesday, or discouraging that the Sixers needed a bench player to play that well just to have a chance against the Wizards but, either way, Milton was fantastic, finishing with 19 points on 6-of-11 shooting, including 2-of-4 from deep and 5-of-7 from the free-throw line. Milton was a game-high plus-33 in his 30 minutes and replaced Green in the finishing lineup.

"[Shake] was great," Embiid told reporters. "Offensively and defensively. ... He did his thing as a point guard and he made shots and he made plays."

He certainly did. When Milton is on the court, the Sixers actually resemble a fluid offensive team. He's a slithery ball handler coming off screens and he can pull up on a dime. He spaces off the ball and knocks down 3s. He's stronger than you'd think at the rim and might be the silkiest left-handed finisher in the league. If you drop on him, he's hitting shots. If you come out, he's getting into the lane. He poses actual modern problems for a defense.

What are “actual modern problems”?

Can they play together? I sensed some animosity that Shake didn't give up the ball in Tulsa for the final shot and took it himself. See Sterling's body language - walks towards the tunnel.

I saw it differently. On a team of multiple NBA bound upperclassmen, none of our players wanted the ball on the last play of the game. In fact Brown passes the ball to Shake with 2 seconds to spare and Milton has no choice but to try and make something happen.

Shake had just drilled a trey to give SMU the lead before USC regained the lead. I think Sterling was just going to the hot hand. Stinks that we lost, but what an exciting game. Our game with UCLA involved a pretty exciting (and controversial) finish as well. Might have been the only game little Nic missed back to back jumpers all year. Just too much adrenaline pumping.
