Miami Heat two-way player Duncan Robinson is making his mark in the G League. The 24-year-old Robinson is the second-leading scorer for the Sioux Falls Skyforce(20.0 ppg), including shooting 48% from downtown. Also, he leads the G League in three-pointers made, which is remarkable considering that Robinson has not played a full season in the G League as he was with Miami earlier in the season.
Back in December, Robinson shooting prowess was on full display when he made 10 three-pointers and finished with a career-high 32 points against the Clippers’ G League affiliate. On Friday, in Delaware at the beautiful, brand new 76ers Fieldhouse, Robinson scored 23 points, including 3-5 from downtown, which helped the Skyforce defeat the Delaware Blue Coats 134-123.
The goal for any G League player is to be a full-time NBA player, and according to the 6’8 forward, to be a fixture in the NBA, he must stay aggressive.
“Knowing what I do well,” Robinson said when discussing what he needs to do to be successful in the NBA. “Keep being aggressive on the offensive end, and competing on defense.”
In today’s NBA where the three-point shot is a huge weapon, Robinson definitely has the skills to have a role with an NBA team.
We caught up with Robinson after Sioux Falls’ victory over Delaware on Friday night. He discussed the life of a two-way player, learning from Dwyane Wade, and more.
