In a process that we should be getting used to by now, the Golden State Warriors have recalled Dewayne Dedmon and Nemanja Nedovic on the day after their victorious (regular season) D-League debut with the Santa Cruz Warriors.
Nedovic did pretty much what we might have expected and/or hoped for as a first round draft pick who has been on a NBA roster: he scored 31 points on 4-for-4 3-point shooting and helped Santa Cruz to a 117-103 win over the Austin Toros last night (click here for the official box score). As we've discussed many times before around here, Embele Awipi of the Santa Cruz Sentinel quoted Seth Curry as saying that the fact that Golden State and Santa Cruz run the same or similar plays helped Nedovic's adjustment.
Speaking of Curry, Scott Rafferty of Ridiculous Upside described how he followed his record-setting scoring performance on opening night with a record-setting 11 assists last night showing that he can be more than just a scorer.
While it's still far too early to fire up the #CallSethUp campaign, there have been some promising signs in his first two games, such as his ability to recognize when he has an off night and still be effective, as well as his ability to heat up like a microwave (it must be a Curry thing).
With Golden State being on a four-game road trip, it seems unlikely that Santa Cruz fans will be seeing Nedovic again for a while, though not impossible: Golden State will return to California for a game in Sacramento on December 1, a day after Santa Cruz faces L.A. at the Kaiser Permanent Arena. After that, Santa Cruz will be on the road (in California) and the next home game on a Golden State off day is December 22, which is the day before Golden State has a game in Denver.
