BBNBA: Because I don’t want to think about the Louisville loss

screen-shot-2016-12-22-at-12-59-01-am

There’s no getting past it. Last night was a rough result for the current Cats. But let’s not think about that right now. Let’s focus on the fact that former UK guys in the NBA had really good nights. And that there were 15 UK guys playing last night, with only 2 Louisville guys playing.

bbnba-davis

Anthony Davis, New Orleans Pelicans (121-110 loss to Thunder)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
36 14-26 1-2 5-7 3 12 15 2 1 2 2 5 +6 34

One day Anthony Davis will get some help down there in New Orleans, so his 34 point and 15 rebound performances won’t go to waste.

Plays like this have become a nightly occurence for Davis.

bbnba-jones

Terrence Jones, New Orleans Pelicans (121-110 loss to Thunder)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
34 9-17 0-1 3-5 0 2 2 1 1 1 1 0 -10 21

Big night for the real T Jones off the bench for the Pelicans.

bbnba-kanter

Enes Kanter, Oklahoma City Thunder (121-110 win over Pelicans)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
34 6-11 0-0 2-2 5 9 14 1 0 2 2 4 +11 14

Big double-double off the bench for Enes Kanter last night. Love to see him putting up solid numbers for a possible playoff team.

bbnba-towns

Karl-Anthony Towns, Minnesota Timberwolves (92-84 win over Hawks)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
37 7-16 0-3 3-4 4 14 18 5 0 1 6 3 +1 17

“There’s nothing better than getting a W”-KAT after leading the T’Wolves to back to back wins for the first time this season. Just your typical 17 and 18 night for the big fella.

Towns got an early start on the way to his 9th straight double-double.

bbnba-book

Devin Booker, Phoenix Suns (125-11 loss to Rockets)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
36 11-25 2-4 4-5 2 4 6 7 0 0 1 3 -5 28

Booker had 28 points to lead the Suns in scoring, but this is the only highlight that matters. Didn’t know he had to do Kyle Wiltjer like that!

bbnba-bled

Eric Bledsoe, Phoenix Suns (125-11 loss to Rockets)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
31 6-13 1-5 3-4 2 0 2 6 0 0 1 2 -16 16


bbnba-knight

Brandon Knight, Phoenix Suns (125-11 loss to Rockets)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
26 5-10 2-2 5-6 1 4 5 2 2 1 2 3 -10 17

This 3 from Knight barely even made the net move. Pure shooter.

bbnba-ulis

Tyler Ulis, Phoenix Suns (125-11 loss to Rockets)

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


bbnba-wall

John Wall, Washington Wizards (107-97 win over Bulls)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
36 9-14 0-2 5-7 0 6 6 9 3 0 2 2 +2 23

Wall’s still got some of that crazy speed we saw back in his Kentucky days.

bbnba-rondo

Rajon Rondo, Chicago Bulls (107-97 loss to Wizards)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
34 1-10 1-2 0-0 1 5 6 10 0 0 4 2 -5 3


bbnba-cousins

DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento Kings (94-93 win over Jazz)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
31 5-18 1-3 10-13 1 7 8 3 0 1 3 2 -4 21

Cousins is tearing it up lately. If he could just keep his emotions in check, he’d be one of the best players in the league. Hands down.

He’s a center. Hitting step-back threes. That’s gross.

bbnba-cauley-stein-wcs

Willie Cauley-Stein, Sacramento Kings (94-93 win over Jazz)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
19 2-4 0-0 1-2 0 5 5 1 0 2 0 0 +6 5

This isn’t much of a highlight, but I can’t resist a good pun from the Kings Twitter account.

bbnba-lyles

Trey Lyles, Utah Jazz (94-93 loss to Kings)

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

    Can we add Kyle Wiltjer to this running list?

      Yeah. Enes didn’t play a game for us, but still like hearing how he’s doing. Why not Wiltjer?
