BBNBA: Eric Bledsoe messes around for a triple-double

eric-bledsoe-devin-booker

On an extremely busy night in the NBA for former Kentucky Wildcats, one of the original members of the Coach Cal era in Lexington, Eric Bledsoe, stole the show. Bledsoe turned in his 3rd career triple-double on a night when several other former Cats could’ve gotten the title honors for this post. Let’s take a look at what the nearly 20 Kentucky guys did in NBA action last night.

Put-back slam with authority for KAT.

Filthy fade-away to beat the shot block here.

Willie played some big minutes for the Kings tonight, and showcased some moves off the dribble.

And here’s the second one as he scores past Kevin Durant.

MKG slashing to the bucket for an easy score, would he have it any other way?

Not near as busy in the NBA tonight, with only two games going on:

  • Washington Wizards at Indiana Pacers, 7pm ET
  • Boston Celtics at Chicago Bulls, 8pm ET on TNT

    Noticeable drop in Trey Lyles minutes compared to last year. He was putting up solid numbers, wonder whats happened.

      He is struggling mightily with his shooting, specifically his 3pt shooting. He gets open well and can create but his shots just don’t go in. Rebounding is better and his defense has been passable along side rudy Gobert, DPOY, and Derrick Favors.

    I’m still surprised Eric Bledsoe hasn’t ended up playing in Cleveland.
