Lots of Cat vs. Cat crime in this one, including DeAndre Liggins stealing the inbounds pass, getting the bucket, and then getting shoved by Bledsoe:

When he wasn’t pushing DeAndre Liggins, Bledsoe was scoring in bunches. He had 31 last night off 12-18 shooting, 4-8 from three-point land. Watch him score them all below:

Booker had himself a night as well, going for 28 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists in 45 minutes. This steal and slam was impressive:

A good night for Julius, who was just shy of a double-double. This block was huge:

Tonight’s games:

  • 7:30 PM: Pelicans (Anthony Davis, Terrence Jones) vs. Knicks
  • 8:00 PM: Thunder (Enes Kanter) vs. Bulls (Rajon Rondo)
  • 8:00 PM: Mavericks vs. Timberwolves (Karl Towns)

By the way, happy birthday to the real T Jones, who turns 25 today.
