BBNBA: Anthony Davis sits, Terrence Jones shines

 

dfgfrg-0-0

Anthony Davis had to sit out tonight’s game for the New Orleans Pelicans due to a quad contusion, but his absence allowed for former Kentucky teammate Terrence Jones to get the start. Jones took advantage of the added minutes, leading all players in scoring in his best game as a Pelican.

Terrence Jones, New Orleans Pelicans (89-82 loss to Magic)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
 38  9-20  2-4  6-7  0  9  2  0  1  1  2  -3  26

Terrence Jones was getting it done on both ends of the floor last night. Here, he starts with a block on one end and hits a 3 on the other.

When Coach Cal first started at UK, one of his big things to yell at the guards was to “Reward your big guy”, meaning that when the big guys ran the floor, reward them with a pass for a bucket. Terrence Jones got a few rewards last night.

Archie Goodwin, New Orleans Pelicans (89-82 loss to Magic)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
 4  0-0  0-0  0-0  0  0  0  0  0  1  0  0  -2  0

Archie is still struggling to find his place on the floor on an already struggling Pelicans roster. Hopefully something changes for the guy, but with Jrue Holiday coming back from injury, Goodwin’s role should stay small for a while.

bbnba-knight

Brandon Knight, Phoenix Suns (120-104 loss to Nuggets)

Min FG 3PT  FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
27   11-19  2-4  5-7  1  3  4  4  0  1  1  -4  29

Knight scored the most points that any bench player has scored this season in the NBA last night. Knight has been living above the rim more than usual this year as well. Take a look.

A one-handed runner from Brandon Knight will always remind me of his game-winner over Princeton in the first round of the tournament.

bbnba-book

Devin Booker, Phoenix Suns (120-104 loss to Nuggets)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
37   10-18  2-3  2-3  1  3  4  2  1  0  4  4  -16  24

Booker wasn’t happy with the officiating last night, and that didn’t stop him from pouring in the points despite the contact.

On the next one, Booker was given a T for his words after the shot went in.

And just before the game ended, Booker was ejected while he was shooting free throws, in the one of the most bizarre exits from a game you will ever see.

bbnba-bled

Eric Bledsoe, Phoenix Suns (120-104 loss to Nuggets)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
 34  2-4  0-1  4-6  1  2  3  5  3  0  6  3  -14  8

Great finish through the lane for Bledsoe, one of only two buckets on the night for him.

bbnba-ulis

Tyler Ulis, Phoenix Suns (DNP in 120-104 loss to Nuggets)

bbnba-murray

Jamal Murray, Denver Nuggets (120-104 win over Suns)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
20   3-8  3-4  0-0  0  1  1  1  0  0  0  1  +4

This might be the most Jamal Murray highlight of all time.

Keep shooting, Jamal. Just keep shooting.

bbnba-wall

John Wall, Washington Wizards (109-102 loss to 76ers)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
 24  8-19  1-3  10-12  0  4  1  0  2  2  +1  27

John Wall knows exactly what to do when he gets a lesser defender on him.

Just in case you forgot how fast John Wall is with the ball.

bbnba-cousins

DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento Kings (110-105 loss to Spurs)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
 37  7-16  1-4  11-14  3  14 17   6  1  0  3  4 +0   26

Even a double team can’t stop DeMarcus Cousins this year.

He’s a true center who can drive the length of the floor and finish in transition. Can’t stop that.

bbnba-cauley-stein-wcs

Willie Cauley-Stein, Sacramento Kings (110-105 loss to Spurs)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
 13  3-5  0-0  5-7  1  3  4  0  1  0  2  2  -10  11

With all of the trade rumors surrounding WCS lately, it is nice to see him out there still doing his thing.

bbnba-patterson

Patrick Patterson, Toronto Raptors (127-121 loss to Warriors)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
25  2-7   1-3  0-0  1  3  4  1  0  0  1  0  -8  5

Enes Kanter, Oklahoma City Thunder (105-103 win over Rockets)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS

bbnba-liggins

DeAndre Liggins, Cleveland Cavaliers (103-93 loss to Pacers)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
 27  1-2  0-0  2-2  1  2  1  2  0  1  2  -4  4

 

bbnba-harrison-andrew

Andrew Harrison, Memphis Grizzlies (111-107 win over Clippers)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
 26  2-4  1-2  0-0  0  3  3  3  0  1  2  4  -5  5

What a block by Harrison in transition against one of the best point guards in the league.

Harrison’s stats may not have been much, but he was giving Chris Paul fits out there.

bbnba-young

James Young, Boston Celtics (90-83 win over Mavericks)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
 7  0-1  0-1 0-0   0  0  0  0  0  0  0  +2  0

Young has failed to score in all but one game this season for the Celtics. At some point, you would think that Young either gains more playing time so that he can score, or will be demoted to the D-league. Time will tell.

Here is the schedule for tonight’s NBA games:

  • New York Knicks at Washington Wizards, 7 pm
  • Milwaukee Bucks at Miami Heat, 7:30 pm
  • Portland Trail Blazers at Houston Rockets, 8 pm
  • Philadelphia 76ers at Minnesota Timberwolves, 8 pm on TNT
  • Chicago Bulls at Utah Jazz, 10:30 pm on TNT
