San Antonio Spurs rookie Joshua Primo on Sunday logged just nine minutes of work, but the 12th overall pick made the most of his time on the court in a win over the Orlando Magic.

Primo entered the contest with just over nine minutes left in the fourth quarter. He responded by recording eight points and one rebound on 3-of-5 shooting from the field, including 2-of-4 from 3-point range. His timely shots helped the Spurs hold off the Magic for the 101-100 victory.

The 18-year-old was the youngest player in the NBA draft this year but has shown plenty of maturity on the court. Spurs forward Keita Bates-Diop noticed that Primo just plays the right way.

For how young he is, he has got a great feel for the game already. He is confident but he makes the right plays, too. He is not just out there shooting every time or has to have the ball in his hands. He knows how to play off of it and on it already.

The selection of Primo was questioned by some but he has shown plenty of promise to this point. He scored 17 points on 7-of-8 shooting in his preseason debut on Oct. 4 and looked to be very effective on offense during that contest.

Primo could eventually see some time in the NBA G League with the Austin Spurs to further develop. However, the Spurs have found great success utilizing their affiliate, and Primo could be the next to benefit from that time in Austin.
