It’s always fun when you see the light go off in a young player’s head. The light that signifies that he gets it.
After the Toronto Raptors traded Rudy Gay to the Sacramento Kings about a month ago, Terrence Ross was put into the starting role so that the organization could see what they had in their No.8 overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. And Ross has responded, giving the Raptors steady production while showing growth alongside Demar DeRozan.
Steady, until he went bananas against the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night scoring 51 points in a game the Raptors ultimately loss but nonetheless he was amazing. Ross became the first player in NBA history to score 50 or more points while averaging less than 10 points per game and tied the franchise mark with none other than Vince Carter .
