BBNBA: Jodie Meeks Drops A Season High

It was a quiet night in the NBA for the Cats, only three players scored at least 10 points while John Wall, Andrew Harrison, Devin Booker, and Nerlens Noel continue to rehab their injuries.

Jodie Meeks was one of the few to crack double-figures, posting a season-high 23 points (3-6 from three) despite a depressing team loss to the Miami Heat. The Washington Wizards have come back down to earth a bit in the absence of John Wall. The Wizards are struggling to keep up with opposing backcourts and the return of Wall to 100 percent is going to be key over the next few weeks if Washington wants to make some noise in the playoffs.

*Jodie Meeks just so happens to drop a season-high the day before Kentucky takes on Tennessee in the SEC Championship, the team he scored 54 points against over nine years ago. Really makes you think, huh?*

Tyler Ulis had himself a solid game while Devin Booker sat out to due to a strained tricep, recording 11 points and 10 assists, his second double-double of the season. Patrick Patterson also chipped in 10 points for the Oklahoma City Thunder’s much-needed win over the San Antonio Spurs.

Player to watch

Normally tonight’s player to watch would be Anthony Davis because why wouldn’t it be, but he is currently labeled as questionable after going down with an ankle injury earlier this week that appeared worse than it actually was (which almost ever happens so say a real quick prayer to the basketball gods, please). Instead, tonight’s player to watch will be Karl-Anthony Towns. Towns and the Timberwolves are slipping a bit in the air-tight Western Conference since the injury to Jimmy Butler, where every game is becoming a must win. A matchup against the reigning champs will be a great test and playoff warmup for Minnesota, who is trying to make the playoffs for the first time since 2004. Their 13 season playoff drought is the longest active streak in the NBA and tied for second-longest of all-time.

Beat Tennessee.
