|Ish Smith: Provides pop off bench in win|
Smith recorded 15 points (7-15 FG, 1-1 3Pt), four assists, four rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot across 21 minutes in Sunday's 11-95 win over the Nets.
The Scoop: Smith was lights-out in the fourth quarter, as he took the reins at point guard and made a solid contribution for the surging Hornets, who are now 3-0. The 11-year veteran is slated to spell LaMelo Ball in the backcourt, likely providing him with a role of around 20 minutes per game. Thus far, the Hornets have been careful with Ball's workload, so it's possible Smith's role could shrink as the season goes on.
