While the San Antonio Spurs were battling the Nuggets last night, earlier in the day, guard Cory Joseph was having quite the game for the Toros versus the Legends.
Joseph, who was re-assigned to Austin, led the Toros with 30 points in a 110-97 win over the Legends which became a D-League high in scoring this season. Cory's final line was 30 points, 2 assists, 5 rebounds, 8-17 from the field in 37 minutes of play.
Hopefully this will only boost Joseph's confidence once he makes it back to the Spurs roster and especially if he is called upon to be on the court for San Antonio.
Check out Joseph's career night for the Toros.
@spurs123 Why would you want to trade Neal? Corey Joseph is a young Point Guard who has the ability to score while Neal is a Scoring 2 Guard who can fill the Point if need be. Neal can create his own shot, shoot off the dribble, and he has a no fear mentality if asked to shoot in the clutch. Corey is a decent player but still needs time to grow and groom his game. I could understand you saying give him a chance over Nando de Colo a month ago but trading Neal c'mon you sound like someone who doesn't really pay attention to the game or season in whole. Almost like you Just bit off of what you saw in one game. Neal has been one of the best steals we have picked up since the first 2 years we had Roger Mason. Difference is Neal is more consistent.. Gary Neal is a player we want on our team. Why? Because he's willing to play his role without whining and also because Pop and us the fans can trust him if Manu is not in the game. Did you not see the Clutch shots from Gary Neal these last 2 years? Did you not watch the Miami game without are Big 3 and Danny Green? If not re-watch that game or watch the highlights, look at the box score and see what Gary Neal did compared to Corey Joseph. You will see a 2 guard who is not a true Point Guard kept us in the Game and gave us a shot at winning against the Defending Champs. Also remember you were looking at an NBA Development League game. "Development" to develop and get better. Neal has shown signs he can Ball in the NBA he doesn't need to go to the D-League unless it's an assignment because of injury.
