Hamidou Diallo was a game one standout, and his progress was evident again in game two.

After game one, Hamidou Diallo just simply looked more fluid and more comfortable.

In game two, it was much of the same. Diallo looked awesome, going 6-for-12 from the floor good enough for 50 percent from the field, and racking up 14 points.

From deep, Diallo went just 1-for-4, but his shooting motion looked a lot better, and he launched 3-pointers without fear, a hitch, or hesitation.

Diallo also grabbed four rebounds, earned three steals and a block.

One play looked eerily similar to an Oklahoma City Thunder player who is on his way out the door.

While getting posted up, the guard gets his hand on the entry pass, steals it and goes the distance the other way to the cup for a nice finish.

Diallo was a plus ten for the game.
