Yeah, you read that right. Jimmer Fredette scored a career-high 70 points, including 11 three-pointers, on 54 minutes of action for the Shanghai Sharks.
Fredette, former 10th overall pick in the 2011 NBA draft, continued doing what he does best. Get buckets. He went 18-of-36 from the floor and nearly had a triple-double with eight rebounds and 9 assists.
Great defense throughout the game, but way better offense from Jimmer.
Averaging 25 points per game, Fredette truly only saw the bottom of the net on Monday. Fredette’s basketball talent isn’t in question as he spent six years in the NBA before signing with the Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese Basketball Association in 2016.
Then in 2019, Fredette attempted to return to the NBA and signed with the Phoenix Suns. In 2020 the Suns decided to not pick up his second-year option, forcing Fredette to go back overseas to play professional basketball.
