On Thursday night, James had 28 points and 9 assists in a victory over Atlanta. Led by James at point guard, the Raptors have won 4 of their last 6 games. James has averaged over 16 points and almost 6 assists per game during that stretch.
I know many Alston defenders will say the jury is still out since he hasn’t played much this season because of an injury, but the fact remains that Alston was struggling terribly before his injury, averaging 7.1 points, 32.3% shooting, and 4.1 assists per game. We should see soon if Alston can prove his worth. There is a chance he might play tonight against the Golden State Warriors.
