BBNBA: Julius Randle messed around and got a triple double

Last night, 4 of the 26 Kentucky players in the NBA were in action, led by Julius Randle, who joined Magic Johnson as the only players in Lakers history to record a triple-double before the age of 22. Let’s get right to it.

Randle was a beast last night, putting up 17 points, 14 rebounds, and 10 assists, the second triple double of his career. He’s now the sixth Lakers player with multiple career triple-doubles since 1985-86.

“It comes from work ethic,” Randle told reporters afterwards. “Every day grinding out. Just trying to get better every day. … Also comes from coach’s belief in me to make plays and be a playmaker.”

Patterson had two points vs. the Cavaliers last night, and also took an elbow to the face from LeBron James:

It was good to see MKG fight through the lane and get a layup like the days of old:

The only thing that would have made Karl getting 21 points on his 21st birthday better would have been a win. Of course, Karl shouldered the blame, telling reporters, “I gotta do more. All of these losses fall on me.”

No, they don’t, Karl!

Meanwhile, in the D-League, Kyle Wiltjer put up 33 points and 11 rebounds in Rio Grande Valley’s win over Maine, going 6-12 from the three-point line. Dakari Johnson also had 17 points, 9 rebounds, 4 steals, and 2 blocks in OKC Blue’s win over Salt Lake City.

    Isn’t Nerlens Noel still with the 76ers?

    I have seen Julius play this year, and thought he looked really good. I am happy for his success!

    Shouldn’t the same exception apply to Jodie Meeks, too, then?

    Can we see a poll on how many people care about the NBA v NFL coverage? Asking for a friend.
