BBNBA: De’Aaron Fox Records Second Double-Double of Career

(Hector Amezcua The Sacramento Bee)


Only four games were in action on a slow Monday night in the NBA, but still some solid performances from former Wildcats. De’Aaron Fox dropped in 11 points and 10 assists for his third career double-double while teammate Willie Cauley-Stein added nine points and seven rebounds. The third member of the Kentucky Kings, Skal Labissiere, missed his second consecutive game after suffering a bruised left hip. Labissiere injured his hip during Friday’s game against the Orlando Magic when he landed hard on the court after trying to secure a lob pass near the rim. He is expected to return soon.

Eric Bledsoe had himself an overall night, scoring 14 points while adding six rebounds and five assists. Bledsoe and the Milwaukee Bucks are fighting for playoff positioning at this point in the season. They’ll easily make the playoffs but are a two-game losing streak from falling to eighth place in the East and a two-game winning streak from potentially jumping into fifth place. The East isn’t nearly as sticky as the West, but seeds three through eight are all going to be a battle.

Player to watch

Tonight’s player to watch is Karl-Anthony Towns. Towns and the currently Jimmy Butler-less Timberwolves recently won a huge game over the defending champion Golden State Warriors on Sunday night. Towns scored 31 points and grabbed 16 rebounds in the win and he’ll look to put up similar numbers against the Washington Wizards (who are still without John Wall). The Wolves are 3-3 without Butler and Towns has been doing everything in his power to keep his team afloat until his All-Star teammate returns. The Wizards are starting to even out after their hot streak without Wall (turns out John Wall is important to the team) and a matchup against another playoff team should make for some great basketball to get everybody ready for the madness that will ultimately consume us all over the next few weeks.

Go Cats and go KAT.
