Fox showcased his lightning pace and court vision with sharp drives to the basket and excellent distribution, a third-quarter alley-oop pass to team-mate Buddy Hield.

He was no slouch from beyond the arc too, making three of his four three-point attempts.

Speaking after the game, Fox felt he had exploited having the ‘hot hand’ in the third quarter but, despite his offensive explosion, revealed improving his defense is his priority this season.
