During his senior season (2017-2018), Nunn was dominant as he averaged 25.9 points, 3.8 assists, and 3.8 rebounds per contest.

Following college, Nunn went undrafted but he is now a key contributor for the Miami Heat.

On Wednesday, against the San Antonio Spurs, Nunn, according to the Heat, broke an NBA record by starting off the game a perfect 8 for 8 from the field. That is a feat that has never been matched by an undrafted rookie in the NBA.

Nunn finished the game with 33 points on 13 of 18 shooting.

On the season, Nunn is averaging 15.4 points, 3.6 assists, and 2.7 rebounds in 39 games.
