Bucks Gaming seemed unable to stick to ZDS, allowing it to hit 6/8 from beyond the arc, one of which from the hash. In his post-match interview, he simply said, “That was green.” He scored 27 points in the first regular season game of the NBA 2K League and, more importantly, helped the 76ers to an 80-71 victory over Bucks Gaming.
According to 2K analysts during the broadcast, ZDS could be the draft steal. He was drafted in the sixth round despite having one of the best levels of efficiency and usage in the NBA 2K League combined prior to the draft.
After the game, ZDS said that being drafted late helped motivate him to want to work harder so he could improve and show all the other teams that they left him behind.
