Shamet is putting up 9.1 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game for the Clippers this season in 10 games. He’s shooting 39.0 percent from the field, 36.2 percent from beyond the arc and a perfect 100 percent from the free-throw line.
The Clippers have the second-best record in the Western Conference at 20-7. The Lakers are first at 22-3.
The Clippers will play without superstar Kawhi Leonard against the Bulls since it’s the second night of a back-to-back. Leonard played 37 minutes on Friday in a win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, putting up 42 points, 11 rebounds and two assists.
The Bulls are one of the worst teams in the league. The Clippers should easily defeat Chicago since Paul George is playing and Shamet is back in the lineup.
Shamet has career averages of 9.1 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 89 games with the Philadelphia 76ers and Clippers. LA acquired the sharpshooter last season from the Clippers in the Tobias Harris trade. Shamet played his college ball at Wichita State. He was the 26th overall pick in the 2018 draft.
