BBNBA: Kanter notches a double-double in Knicks win

Last night was the first night of NBA action back from the All-Star break, and as usual, a handful of former Kentucky Wildcats took the floor. The New York Knicks knocked off the Orlando Magic by the score of 120-113, and former Cat Enes Kanter finished with 12 points and 12 rebounds. His efforts were good for his 29th double-double on the season which ranks 10th in the NBA.

In fact, former Kentucky guys are riddled throughout the top 10 in double-doubles in the league. Karl-Anthony Towns sits at the top of the list with 51, DeMarcus Cousins is fourth at 38, and Anthony Davis ranks sixth at 36. That means Kentucky makes up 40% of the top 10 in the NBA in terms of double-doubles. Is that good? That seems good.

    “Karl-Anthony Towns sits at the top of the list with 51, DeMarcus Cousins is fourth at 38, and Anthony Davis ranks sixth at 36. That means Kentucky makes up 40% of the top 10 in the NBA in terms of double-doubles.”

    So you must be a math major, right?

      Read directly above that where I said that Kanter is 10th. 1. KAT, 4. Cousins, 6. Davis, 10. Kanter. That is four out of 10, or 40%.
