BBNBA: That’s All Folks!

Good morning, folks. Anthony Davis has seen his last game as a member of the New Orleans Pelicans. Let’s talk NBA.

RECAP

  • It was just your regular day in the NBA on Tuesday. Magic Johnson unexpectedly (and thankfully) quit on the Lakers without telling his boss first. Dwyane Wade and Dirk Nowitzki both scored 30 points in their last NBA home game. Jamal Crawford scored 51 at age 62. The Thunder and Blazers both won off clutch shots at the end of the game. The Pistons officially made the playoffs. And Anthony Davis is still trolling, but let’s start with recapping the games.
  • Brandon Knightmy Comeback Player of the Year – scored nine points for the Cavaliers in their blowout loss to the Charlotte Hornets, who were eliminated from the playoffs. Malik Monk added eight points, three rebounds, and four assists for Charlotte, who were without Michael Kidd-Gilchrst for the second straight game as he tends to personal matters.
  • Wade was the centerpiece of Miami’s 23-point win over the Philadelphia 76ers, but Bam Adebayo played a great game without having to worry about a patrolling Joel Embiid. Adebayo posted 19 points and nine boards on 8-11 shooting for the Heat.

  • Kevin Knox registered a 17-point, 10-rebound double-double – the third of his career – in a Knicks win over the Chicago Bulls.
  • In New Orleans, all three former Wildcats were sidelined, but that didn’t prevent Anthony Davis from digging deep into his bag of petty streetwear. Davis wore a shirt that had the words “That’s all folks!” printed across his chest and it’s kind of hilarious but also not a great look.

  • Interpret that as you please.
  • DeMarcus Cousins added 21 points, 12 rebounds, and six assists for the Warriors against his former team as Golden State beat the Pellies 112-103.

  • In Utah, the Jazz edged out a win over the Denver Nuggets despite Jamal Murray going for 22 points and five rebounds.
  • And lastly, in Los Angeles, the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Lakers thanks to a game-winning shot from Moe Harkless. Enes Kanter led the BBNBA with 22 points and 16 rebounds on 8-13 shooting for Portland.

  • Check out the full stat sheet below.
  • Tonight is also the last night of the NBA regular season. Playoffs start on Sunday.

    I thought The Brow’s shirt was spot on.

    Hornets were not eliminated. If they win their last game and Detroit loses AGAIN, they’re in.
