Oliver Lafayette began his European career the other night in Kaunas, Lithuania when his Partizan Belgrade team took on Zalgiris. It was not a good start. In 18 minutes, Oliver scored 5 points on 1-10 shooting, had 3 rebounds, and tallied 2 assists as his team lost by a score of 73-62. It was obviously not the start O would have hoped for, but I think it will get much better as he gets more time in Europe and more time in the league. Here is what his coach stated after the game: "I am anxious to see what he does the next time on the court once he gets his legs under him. I am sure he will do much better.
