BBNBA Roundup: Can Anthony Davis get some help, please?

Six of the 24 Cats in the NBA were in action last night, led by Anthony Davis, who scored 35 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in yet another loss for the Pelicans. All of that and more in today’s BBNBA Roundup:

This is mostly a highlight for D’Angelo Russell, but still, nice slam:

Not a highlight, but Cousins managed to pick up six fouls…in the fourth quarter:

Willie Cauley-Stein and Skal Labissiere did not play (coach’s decision).

Here’s a depressing stat: Anthony Davis has 148 points and 52 rebounds through four games (all losses). The last player with those sort of numbers during a four-game losing streak was Patrick Ewing, who had 148 points and 56 rebounds through four losses in 1990.

As you can see in this clip, he pretty much does it all for the Pelicans:

Karl only had 11 points (and 10 rebounds) in the Timberwolves’ first win of the season, but Karl’s step-back jumper to beat the shot clock is still impressive:


Andrew Harrison, Grizzlies (116-80 loss to the Timberwolves)

Even though he didn’t start, Andrew turned in a well-rounded performance for the Grizzlies, including a 7-8 mark from the free throw line.

Lyles had his best game of the season vs. the Spurs, hitting this big three-pointer down the stretch to help seal the victory:

Today’s games:

  • 7:00 PM: Raptors (Patrick Patterson) at Wizards (John Wall)
  • 7:00 PM: 76ers (Nerlens Noel — injured) at Hornets (MKG, Aaron Harrison)
  • 7:30 PM: Rockets (Kyle Wiltjer) at Knicks
  • 7:30 PM: Lakers (Julius Randle) at Hawks
  • 8:00 PM: Pelicans (Anthony Davis) at Grizzlies (Andrew Harrison)
  • 8:00 PM: Bulls (Rajon Rondo) at Celtics (James Young)
  • 9:00 PM: Mavericks at Jazz (Trey Lyles)
  • 10:00 PM: Trail Blazers at Suns (Eric Bledsoe, Brandon Knight, Devin Booker, Tyler Ulis)
  • 10:30 PM: Thunder (Enes Kanter) at Clippers

Let me know if you like the new format…I’m trying something new.

    I like it! Love the actual stat lines and the highlights. Bravo! (although we have about as much claim to Enes as we do Shawn Kemp)

    Multiple thumbs up! This format will be directly responsible for significant increased productivity for the BBN. No longer will we need to paw (bad pun) through websites to see how our Alums fared the previous day. Nor will we need to check the schedule for the upcoming games. The only improvement would be add TV coverage information to make it “one stop shopping.”

    As far as Kanter is concerned, while I am not a fan of his political views, I believed he definitely contributed to the success of the team by going up against Harrellson and others during practices.

    I like it. Much easier to follow. With so many players, it’s difficult to follow the logic on the old style. This works much better.
