Soko didn’t miss a shot from inside the arc, going 6-6 for his 15 points in 18 minutes, whilst adding four steals in the game 2 win on the road.
The 24-year-old averaged 13.2 points along with 5.4 rebounds per game in 34 appearances during his first season as a pro having graduated from Duquesne last summer.
