We warned you about Carsen Edwards.
The 6'1" combo guard from Purdue was included in our draft sleeper piece, but he was still fell to the Boston Celtics in the second round, selected 33rd overall. Carsen's scoring ability was as good as advertised, though, as he averaged a team-high 19.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.4 assists in 23.4 minutes over five games in the Summer League.
We know the offseason should be taken with a grain of salt, but it feels like the mini tank is slowly making the other teams regret passing up on him.
Against the Cavaliers in a preseason game, Carsen had 30 points in 21 minutes. What was more impressive than him living up to his reputation as a offensive juggernaut, is the fact that he hit eight three-pointers in the span of six minutes during a 26-point third quarter.
You have to see every long bomb from his unbelievable run to believe it:
Looks like Tacko Fall isn't the only Boston rookie to watch for.
As one Twitter user pointed out, Carsen's hot-shooting night was so ridiculous that it overshadowed bigger events such as the Democratic debate and MLB playoffs.
The rest of social media had a hard time processing what just went down in Cleveland.
Some were lost for words in describing Carsen's Klay Thompson-esque performance, even comparing him — the Celtics' third-leading preseason scorer in the preseason at 10.3 ppg entering the game — to the Human Torch.
Carsen's long-range explosion also led others to bring up Stephen Curry's name.
