Watch Darius Miller’s first NBA start tonight on ESPN

Darius Miller will be making his first career start in his first nationally televised NBA game tonight when the Hornets host the Sixers.  The game is at 8:00 ET and will be televised on ESPN.

Miller will start in place of the injured Austin Rivers.  Rivers sprained his finger while not passing the ball in Tuesday’s practice.

The Hornets will also be without Anthony Davis, unfortunately.  Davis suffered a concussion on Friday night when he took an elbow to the head from Rivers.  The replay shows Rivers’ elbow catch Davis while Rivers was attempting to play defense, something he’s not accustomed to doing.  When asked about the collision after the game, Rivers took a 30 ft. contested shot and bricked it.

 

Good luck to Darius. Make us proud.

    Austin Rivers probably didn’t like all the attention AD was getting. Can’t stand that guy…

    Hilarious…and wouldn’t surprise me if it was true. I hate Rivers and it makes watching the Hornets play really tough when he starts dribbling for 20 seconds and throwing up crap. I hope Miller makes the most of his time and sees even more minutes come his way.

    Great job Drew. I think you can use this routine on Rivers for his entire career, if it lasts 3 years. Why isn’t Davis playing? I thought he was cleared?

    #6 I watched the game but thanks. I was saying I thought they said Davis would only miss one game.

    the sprained finger while “not” passing the ball would have to be an overuse injury – right?

    One of the funniest posts in a while. I agree with #7. I can laugh at Rivers jokes all day. He’s a smug little prick.

    To say Rivers was trying to play defense on the play is extremely generous. “Matador defense” would be more accurate.

    Yes me too. As much as I love watching AD play, I can barely do it when rivers is on the court.

    Austin was preparing to for a Dukie flop but Davis was already in position to actually play defense.

    Get off Rivers’ ass. He works hard both at not passing the ball, and taking ill-advised shots.

    The sprained finger line is classic! Feel free to use over and over on Rivers…

    Due to the 30 ft contested shot comment, I now look like a lunatic sitting at my desk laughing my ass off.
