The last day of the NBA regular season turned out to be perhaps the best for David Stockton.
The rookie point guard and son of an NBA legend notched his first career NBA points against the Lakers at the Staples Center, finishing with 5 points, 7 assists and 2 steals in 19 minutes of action for the Kings.
That acrobatic bucket came against a familiar defender in Vander Blue, who was called up from the Los Angeles D-Fenders this week. The two met five times during the regular season (average score: 148-143 L.A.), including a 174-169 shootout in January that set the record for the most points scored in an NBA D-League game.
Watch the young Stockton play and it’s easy to see that he was raised by one of the best pure point guards in NBA history. But before Wednesday’s game, David also showed off some hops that even John may not have possessed.
