Recap

Another day, another BBNBA recap featuring Andrew Harrison and Julius Randle. Their continued development is starting to become less and less of a surprise. Both players have taken a huge leap this season in their production and are finally earning the recognition they deserve. Both players scored 20 points as their respective teams went head-to-head on Saturday night, with Randle’s Los Angeles Lakers pulling away with the victory. Randle pulled down 11 rebounds to go with his 20 points, his 23rd double-double of the season. Harrison added four rebounds and nine assists to his 20 points.

Anthony Davis went for 25 points in a loss to the Houston Rockets, despite not even playing the fourth quarter as the game was no longer in reach (FYI, Houston is very very very very good). The Pelicans played the last game of their week from hell, finishing up a stretch of five games in seven days. Ending that trip against the Houston Rockets was hardly fair for the Pelicans, but they still sit at sixth in the Western Conference standings.

In John Wall news, he finally returned to full-contact practice this weekend. There is still no timetable for his return, but ESPN reported that the Wizards expect Wall to be back soon. “He’ll be back in no time,” said head coach Scott Brooks.

ICYMI: Aaron Harrison and Marquis Teague both signed a 10-day contract with the Dallas Mavericks (Harrison) and Memphis Grizzlies (Teague). Neither played Saturday night, however, Harrison did play 19 minutes on March 22nd in his first NBA game since last season, scoring six points. The additions of Harrison and Teague brings the number of former Kentucky players in the NBA up to 30. THIRTY!

Highlights



Tonight in the NBA

1:00 (NBATV): Cavaliers @ Nets

3:30: Spurs @ Bucks (Bledsoe)

5:00: Heat (Adebayo) @ Pacers (Poythress)

6:00: Clippers @ Raptors

6:00 (NBATV): Knicks (Kanter) @ Wizards (Meeks)

6:00: Celtics @ Kings (Cauley-Stein, Fox, Labissiere)

7:00: Trail Blazers @ Thunder (Patterson, Johnson)

8:00: Hawks @ Rockets

Player to watch

Today’s player to watch is Eric Bledsoe of the Milwaukee Bucks. Bledsoe has scored in double figures in 20 of his last 21 games and in eight of those games he’s scored 20 or more. The former Kentucky point guard is playing some of his best basketball this season at the right time for the Bucks. Milwaukee currently sits in the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference with only 10 games remaining on their schedule. They’re currently only a half game back of the Miami Heat for the seventh seed, which could be the difference in playing the red-hot Toronto Raptors or the injury-riddled Boston Celtics in the first round of the playoffs. In today’s matchup against the San Antonio Spurs – another playoff hopeful team – Bledsoe and company will hope to pull out a big win at home. Every game counts right now, a win today would go a long way in building confidence as the regular season dwindles to a close.

    I say we have a vote of KSR readers and see if we want you all to continue posting updates from the NBA. I think there should be 2 options: we either have NONE AT ALL or you post updates on a former Wildcat for the number of seasons they spent in Lexington. If they played one year then you simply offer us updates for their rookie season.

    How about having a tab at the top for “BBNBA” instead of trying to force-feed it to us on the main pages? That way if you’re interested in former KY players you can click on it to your heart’s content and those of us who couldn’t care less like me don’t have to keep scrolling and bitching about it.

    Lol, typical ignorant haters. You don’t care about Davis? He only won a national title and Player of the year. Just jealous to see black men succeed I guess. What should they not take millions as lottery picks?!

      And the libtard raises its ugly head. At the first sign of dissent from following the lock-step of Jones & Co. they make it about race. So f***ing typical. I bet you also watched every minute of coverage of March For Our LIES on TV, withe the pencil-necked ignoramus bringing a tear to your eye with his “speech” he didn’t write and the Heil Hitler salute at the end.
