Anthony Bennett finally scored double digit points

Published Add your comment

Anthony Bennett hasn't done a lot this season - and that's putting it nicely - but the Cleveland Cavalier finally got his score box in to double digits for the first time as an NBA player. 

Celebration time surely in the streets of Cleveland right. Maybe the advertising team was right all along, amazing truly has happened. 

In his 33rd career game, Anthony Bennett dropped 15 points and eight rebounds in 31 minutes. It was the first time Bennett has scored 10 or more points in a game. 

But yes, he was the number one draft pick. 

It doesn't matter that the last four No. 1 overall picks all scored double-digit points in their first or second game. At least Bennett has finally done it. 

According to Basketball Reference, Bennett has the second-lowest win shares per 48 minutes of any rookie in history who played at least 30 games and averaged at least 10 minutes per game.

The only player above him on that list is a man by the name of Cory Higgins, an un-drafted free agent who played two season with the Bobcats, literally a nobody.

Who knows, maybe this will see the start of a new Anthony Bennett. He does certainly have some impressive moves, as you can see in the above video. 

It will take him a long while though to get rid of the 'bust' label that has followed him around all season.
