Randle drops record-breaking 25 points in matchup with Clippers

Randled: verb, "to feel the wrath of Jerome Randle."

TBT teams far and wide have experienced this basketball phenomenon over the past two summers. On Sunday night, it was the Los Angeles Clippers' turn. With his Sydney Kings in Honolulu, Hawaii for a preseason tilt with Doc Rivers and company, Randle dropped a game-high 25 points to go along with three rebounds and three assists. That set a record for most points ever scored by an NBL player against an NBA team, overtaking Team Challenge ALS point guard Casper Ware, who dropped 20 against the Oklahoma City Thunder last year and 19 against the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night.

 

Randle was so good that fellow Chicago native Patrick Beverly, who is widely regarded as one of the best defensive players in the NBA, had to show his respect after the game. Asked about his childhood friend, Beverly stated that Randle is "one of the shiftiest guards in the world. Put him up there with Kyrie when it comes to handling the ball."

 

 

TBT fans are used to seeing Randle compete at the highest levels. In Eberlein Drive's run to the TBT 2018 Championship Game, the University of California all-time leading scorer averaged 21.7 ppg, 3.8 apg and 2.7 rpg. His efforts landed him a spot on the All-Tournament Team. As several noted throughout the course of the game, this performance was yet another reminder that Randle deserves a shot on an NBA roster.
