Another night of three games in the NBA Playoffs, and another two former Kentucky Wildcats took the floor for their respective teams. Andrew Harrison and the Memphis Grizzlies managed to take a game at home against the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference, the San Antonio Spurs. In the East, Patrick Patterson and the Raptors stood essentially no chance from the beginning of the game against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Raptors were down 20 after the first quarter, while only scoring 12 points, and the Bucks never looked back.
Here’s how the two former Cats looked on the stat sheet. Spoiler alert: There’s nothing too impressive from last night.

Patrick Patterson, Toronto Raptors (104-77 loss to Bucks)
Not much going for Patterson or any of the Raptors last night, as they only had 46 points at the end of the third quarter. Patterson has fallen in a bit of a funk lately and his production has diminished. In fact, Patterson has only scored in double figures four times in the last month’s worth of games. Hopefully, for both his sake and the team’s sake, PPat can find his rhythm and the Raptors can even up the series in their next game.
Tonight’s NBA Playoff action gives us three games and three chances to watch a total of four former Cats try to extend their season.
