In game three without Zion Williamson, the Duke Blue Devils have found they don't need to get creative to make the highlight-reel, especially when facing the lowly Miami Hurricanes in Durham. RJ Barrett, a likely top-3 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, threw down an absolute hammer against the Hurricanes early in the first half. Duke's pain presence is impossible to ignore at this juncture. Zion who?
Credit to Barrett, whose usage rate is through the roof without Williamson on the floor. He's been asked to lead the offense and then some in Zion's absence, and has performed admirably despite his team's struggles.
