Ayinde Ubaka did a great job improving on his day one performance, finding a perfect balance between distributing the ball to create for his teammates and working in some of his own scoring game, specifically with his prowess from mid-range. Ubaka had an excellent duel with opposing point guard Zabian Dowdell
, as both went back and forth getting into the lane and either scoring themselves or kicking the ball out to teammates. Ubaka converted assists on multiple drive-and-dishes in the game, getting in the lane mostly using hesitation moves, starting and stopping to get his defender off balance. He did a very good job finding his teammates for open spot-up jumpers, and he actually dished out at least a handful of those passes that his teammates could not convert.
In terms of scoring for himself, Ubaka did a much better job today showing off his ability to score in the lane, hitting an array of impressive floaters and scoring off the glass when he got all the way to the rim. He got out in transition when he had the opportunity, scoring some lay-ups and dishing out assists as well, including one very impressive high-speed, look-away assist for a lay-up. Ubaka also showed off his outside scoring ability, hitting two NBA three-pointers, one on a pull-up and the other a spot-up.
Ubaka followed up on his solid performance in day one with a very strong one in day two, and if he puts up another performance like this, showing off the balance between scoring and distributing, he should have a good chance of getting into the Orlando pre-draft camp and putting himself in more serious NBA discussions.
