BBNBA: SGA and Fox Go Head-to-Head

(Photo via | Clippers Digital)

Good afternoon, folks. It was another slow night in the Association, but one that featured two former Wildcat point guards pit against each other. Let’s talk NBA.


Clippers – 133 @ Kings – 121

  • De’Aaron Fox and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander went head-to-head in their first-ever meeting between the two. Both played incredibly well, shared similar stat lines, and showed the world that these two young guards have a good chance to be the future crop of great NBA point guards.
  • Fox went for 17 points, three rebounds, and nine assists on 6-13 shooting while SGA also went for 17 points on 6-9 shooting including five rebounds, four assists, zero turnovers and – most importantly – the win.
  • Maintaining the trend, Willie Cauley-Stein added another 17 points for the Kings on 8-13 shooting plus 10 rebounds – his seventh double-double of the season.

Other notes

  • As I wrote earlier, Brandon Knight is planning on suiting up for the Houston Rockets G League affiliate on Friday night for the first time since his ACL surgery in August of 2017. The Rockets desperately need any sort of help from their bench and a healthy Knight could go a long way to help fortify that second-unit. I’m very curious to see what version of Knight will be on the court when he does step back into an NBA game.

    This is why I wish they stayed at UK another year or two. I never watch the NBA.
