Corey Fisher reportedly went out and put up 105 points in a summer league game Saturday night, prompting the question: Who was guarding Corey Fisher?
According to reports, Fisher made 23 of 28 3-pointers — missing only five — and scored 72 points in the second half of the 40-minute game in the Watson Classic in the Bronx.
Some cat named Jose Calderon from Spanish Harlem — not the NBA — was primarily guarding him, but Fisher reportedly faced multiple double- and triple-teams.
Nice D, guys.
The 6-foot-1 Fisher is a Bronx native who starred at Elizabeth (N.J.) St. Patrick under head coach Kevin Boyle. He helped the Celtics win back-to-back New Jersey Tournament of Champions titles in 2006 and ’07.
With Scottie Reynolds having signed to play pro ball in Italy, Wildcats coach Jay Wright will now look to Fisher, fellow senior guard Corey Stokes and sophomore guard Maalik Wayns for much of the team’s scoring.
Might want to get the ball to Fisher a bit, coach.
