BBNBA: AD Scores 36, Booker Exits With Hamstring Injury

Good morning, folks. Anthony Davis is still the best basketball player to have ever lived. Let’s talk NBA.


Pelicans – 119 @ Hornets – 109

  • Anthony Davis continued his reign of basketball terror on the Charlotte Hornets during Sunday night’s game. Davis – who appears to be working for the most unique box scores in history – scored 36 points on an efficient 14-19 shooting to go along with his 19 rebounds (wow) and eight assists (seriously?). Oh yeah, he also recorded two blocks and two steals. On the season, Davis is averaging career-highs in points, rebounds, assists (he’s averaging over twice as many assists this season than last – 4.8 compared to 2.3), three-point percentage, and minutes played. There is absolutely no way Davis isn’t a top 3 MVP candidate right now. His team also got the win on the road.

  • Julius Randle and Darius Miller both contributed 13 points for the Pellies. Randle also added nine rebounds.
  • For Charlotte, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist brought in 10 points and three rebounds in 19 minutes while Malik Monk had another tough night, shooting 1-5 for only four points. After Monk’s 26-point outburst back on Nov. 25, he’s averaged only 3.8 points over his last four games.

Other notes

  • Devin Booker left in the second quarter of the Suns-Lakers game after an apparent injury to his hamstring. After missing the previous game due to a toe injury – where he stubbed it against a hotel bed – Booker pulled the same hamstring that caused him to miss three games earlier in October. Booker was chasing after a loose ball before getting injured and had to immediately head to the locker room. He may have the worst – and weirdest – injury luck of any NBA player. The Suns are already bad with Booker, they’re hot garbage without him.

    to this day, the last guy to slow AD down is Coach Cal

    Booker is pretty fragile it would appear. He seems to get hurt a lot
