Nets' Norvel Pelle receives praise

Brooklyn Nets power forward Norvel Pelle received praise from head coach Steve Nash.

What It Means:

“He’s out of shape a little bit for NBA standards,” Nash said. “You could see him out there. I was proud of him for fighting through, trying to get his legs and his lungs going. He obviously has some instincts blocking shots, which is I think his reputation and why we looked at him. I was proud of the way he conducted himself and worked hard.” Pelle recorded 2 points, 5 boards, and 3 blocks in just 17 minutes on Saturday in his season debut. The second-year big should be able to earn more minutes moving forward with consistent production. It's worth noting that the Nets signed Noah Vonleh on Monday to add to their thin frontcourt.

Pelle scored 14 and averaged 0.8 FanDuel points per minute in his debut. His 14.4 block percentage would be first in the league by 4.4 percentage points.
