Austin Rivers was pretty honest about Lu Dort in his recent IG live, as he admitted he didn’t know who he was, when OKC took the floor in the first round of the 2020 NBA Playoffs.
“I’m not gonna lie, I didn’t know who that was. Dort is crazy,” the Rockets guard said.
Dort was the primary defender for James Harden in the series and a key factor for Oklahoma taking the Rockets to 7 games and one shot away from the elimination.
The rookie guard/forward stood out for his intensive defense and his 30-point performance in Game 7 of the series, which brought the Houston Rockets in the brink of elimination.
The undrafted sensation averaged 12.5 points, 3.7 rebounds, one assist and one block per game in the 2020 postseason.
