BBNBA: John Wall and the Wizards go up 2-0


bbnba-playoffs

Last night in the NBA featured three playoff games, with former Kentucky Wildcats suiting up in two of those three games. John Wall and the Wizards took on the Hawks in game two of their series, while Enes Kanter and the Oklahoma City Russell Westbrook’s went to battle against the Rockets. Here’s a look at how the two former Cats played last night.

Can I just say one thing? I really love watching John Wall abuse Dennis Schröder all game long. So amusing to me.

Specifically this play. That stare down is lethal. Schröder tries to yell at Dwight Howard after Schröder committed a turnover and then got dunked on….makes sense.

That stare-down though 😳

The Houston Rockets have picked on Enes Kanter’s inability to guard James Harden when switched after a screen. They went right at him almost every possession he was in game 1. Billy Donovan was caught on camera telling an assistant coach that they couldn’t play Kanter any longer. As you can see in game 2, Donovan wasn’t lying. Decrease in minutes and production from the big fella. Hopefully we see that change going forward.


Two more former Kentucky guys will be playing in tonight’s playoff games:

  • Cleveland Cavaliers at Indiana Pacers, 7pm ET on TNT
  • Toronto Raptors (Patrick Patterson) at Milwaukee Bucks, 8pm ET on NBATV
  • San Antonio Spurs at Memphis Grizzlies (Andrew Harrison), 9:30pm ET on TNT

    Can Westbrook shoot any more, my gosh every time. Would hate to play with him.

      Why do you think Durant left OKC?
