Patrick Patterson breaks out

patrick-patterson-rockets

In their first game since returning from the All-Star hiatus, the Houston Rockets beat the Detroit Pistons thanks to a big night from KSR’s most athletically gifted commenter.  Former Cat Patrick Patterson busted out in a big way in the Motor City, registering 20 points and 5 rebounds in only 22 minutes of action.  Patterson’s performance was particulary impressive considering he played the entire fourth quarter of a close game, keeping Chuck Hayes and Luis Scola on the bench, and strung together seven-straight points and turned a one-point deficit into a six-point lead and put the Pistons away for good.  It was a fantastic start to a second half of the season that could see a significant bump in playing time for the Wildcat legend.  And, again, it confirms there’s magic in Rupp.

Watch him work:

    Agreed #9. I LOVED seeing another Kentucky boy (Tayshaun) showing some left and respect for another.

    I love PPat! It was nice to see Prince there at the end, too.

    Hittin mid-range jumpers, post moves, strong dunks, cleaning the glass. All the stuff that made him successful at UK……

    That made me so happy to watch. Made my day. He’s going to be a really great NBA player.

    This warms my heart. (And yes. I’m a female, so don’t think I’m all that weird for saying that.) Makes me so happy to see Patrick doing what he does best. He deserves all the love he can get from fans, teammates and media. He’s definitely a special kid.

    PPat doesnt look right in red though, I am happy for him though, just wish he was in BLUE in the NBA and not the ugly red color

    17 – Tay said something to the effect of “that’s my Kentucky boy”

    Way to go, Patrick! We knew you had it in you. Wouldn’t you love to see Tay get traded to Houston? A Rocket front-court of Patrick, Tay, and the shortest center in the NBA – Hayes would be sweet.

    Matt Bullock, the guydoing PPat’s interview, has been saying PPat should have been playing all year.

    He’s got puppies scent off the bus!! Way to go PPat and a class move by Prince. On a side note, the last game that Rafferty called for UK, did anyone else notice that he said of Knight “He’s got puppies that hump!”?

    24) I get a feeling Lucas ain’t coming. Could be wrong though

    Patrick Patterson = STUD. He grew up right before my eyes.
    Tayshaun Prince = CLASSY. Played a horrible game and came over to give out the love.

    You can’t keep a good man down! Wow, he’s so awesome, just like we’ve known for years. Way to go, Patrick! And just when you thought that video couldn’t get any better, Tayshaun steps in. Incredible!

    PPat is one of may favorites of all time. Gotta agree with Cal — he’ll be in the league for a long time. Great to see Tayshaun give him props.
