BBNBA: A Fantastic Friday Night for Former Cats


In Nerlens Noel’s first start for the Mavericks he had his first career 15/15 game, finishing with 15 points, 17 rebounds, 2 blocks, 2 assists and a steal.  I think it’s safe to say the trade to Dallas worked.

The Pelicans had an opportunity to knock off the Spurs in regulation, but faltered in overtime.  That doesn’t mean Boogie and the Brow didn’t ball out.  In his fourth game as a Pelican, DeMarcus Cousins tied the franchise rebounding record with 23.  Cousins added 19 points to the stat sheet.

Anthony Davis led the Pelicans with 29 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists, a block and this fantastic steal.

John Wall couldn’t will the Washington Wizards to a win over Patrick Patterson’s Raptors (8 pts., 7 reb.), but he did find the time to flirt with a triple-double.  Wall finished with 30 points, 7 assists and 8 rebounds.  He also got three blocks, including this nastiness.

We’ve become accustomed to seeing stuff like that, but I’ll never get used to seeing Wall drain threes.

When Tyler Ulis (career-high 14 points) wasn’t busy throwing passes between Steven Adams’ legs, Devin Booker (17 pts., 7 reb.) was busy getting buckets and talking trash to the Oklahoma City Thunder.  Enes Kanter (11 pts., 5 reb.) yelled “Rebound!” as Devin Booker’s shot a three.  It swished through the net and Booker ran back down court yelling at him “Rebound what?!”  Eric Bledsoe led the Suns in scoring with 18 points by doing crazy stuff like this:

In L.A., Julius Randle squared up against his former Kentucky teammate James Young.  Young was held scoreless in 12 minutes of action and Randle finished with 13 points and 7 rebounds.  Young’s Celtics won 115-95.

    Cousins is 0 wins for New Orleans still. Only win they got was when he was suspended and they blew out Pistons. SC was showing clips of him blowing up on ref calls again last night, should have gotten at least one T. He travels, clearly, they call it and he acts like the world is ending. Stupid and doing himself no favors.
