BBNBA: Davis and Randle overpower Wall’s Wizards


Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Recap:

  • In a matchup that featured three of the best college players Kentucky has had since Coach Cal took over, Anthony Davis, Julius Randle, and the Pelicans picked up a 21-point victory over John Wall’s Wizards. Davis and Randle combined for 51 points, 27 rebounds, 3 blocks, and 2 steals. After a slow first half, Wall tried to help Washington hang around, but his 17 points and 7 assists were not enough.
  • Karl-Anthony Towns and the rest of the Minnesota Timberwolves seems to be playing so much more relaxed since the trade of Jimmy Butler to the 76ers. The Timberwolves are probably not as good overall as a team, but the team morale is certainly way higher than it was a few weeks ago. Last night, the Wolves beat up on the San Antonio Spurs, behind Towns’ 16 points, 11 rebounds, and 5 assists.
  • In the battle of former Kentucky guards, Devin Booker may have won the one-on-one battle with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, but SGA and the Clippers took home the team victory. Booker finished with 23 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, while Gilgeous-Alexander had 13 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists.
