Recap

There isn’t an adjective in the English dictionary that can properly describe what Anthony Davis is doing to the rest of the basketball world. If anyone thinks of one that can accurately sum up his play over the last two weeks, try again, because it isn’t good enough.

Here’s a quick overview of Anthony Davis’ last six games:


That is insane. I have no words (although I will soon). Davis is amazing, an MVP candidate, and basketball king.

Before my infatuation with Davis goes too far, he wasn’t the only former Wildcat with a big game last night.

Devin Booker, who dropped 40-points, 10 rebounds, and seven assists performance AGAINST Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans, is the forgotten man of the night. Booker had one of the best night’s of his career, but it doesn’t matter when Davis is doing what he’s doing (okay I promise I’m done talking about AD).

The Sacramento Kings trio of Cauley-Stein, Fox, and Labissiere scored a combined 50 points in a losing effort to Karl-Anthony Towns (who posted 26 points and 17 rebounds) and the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Check out the rest of the stats below.

Highlights

Tonight in the NBA

7:00: Bulls @ Hornets (Kidd-Gilchrist, Monk)

7:00: Nets @ Cavaliers

7:30: Sixers @ Heat (Adebayo)

8:00 (TNT): Wizards (Meeks) @ Bucks (Bledsoe)

10:00: Kings (Cauley-Stein, Fox, Labissiere) @ Trail Blazers

10:30 (TNT): Clippers @ Nuggets (Murray, Lyles)

Player to watch

Tonight’s player to watch is Miami Heat forward Bam Adebayo. Adebayo is playing superb basketball for a rookie, slowly moving his way up the Heat player power rankings. Averaging 9.3 points and 6.3 rebounds over his last 10 games, Adebayo is quickly becoming a fan favorite in Miami and a realistic piece they can build their future around. A matchup against Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers should be an exciting test for the 20-year old. But, honestly, I wouldn’t blame you if you spent all day watching Anthony Davis highlights (which is exactly what I’ll be doing).

    Imagine what Davis’ numbers would be if Boogie hadn’t been traded… Between the two of them, I believe they averaged close to 60/70-points most game.

      Boogie is injured. Not traded.

    Isn’t James Young with the 76ers?

    AD making Rondo get back in his old groove averaging ten dimes a game too. Anthony is really tearing it up no doubt
