BBNBA: Towns and Cousins both go for 30+

Another busy night in the NBA for former Kentucky Wildcats, as 8 guys suited up to represent Big Blue Nation. Headlining the former Cats was the matchup between the Timberwolves and the Nuggets, pitting the big man Karl-Anthony Towns and the Canadian archer Jamal Murray.

i

Karl-Anthony Towns, Timberwolves (102-99 loss to Nuggets)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
38  11-19   2-4 8-10   5  14  2  1  2  2  -1  32

Will it ever get old watching Towns go coast to coast like a created player in a video game? The answer is no.

And then, of course, the 7-footer can knock down the long-range shot. Other teams need to be very afraid of the Timberwolves in the next few years.

 

i-1

Jamal Murray, Nuggets (102-99 win over Timberwolves)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
 29 0-8   0-4 0-0   3  4  0  0  +5  0

Despite still having not made a field goal this season, Jamal Murray got the start for the Nuggets last night. He dished out a few sweet passes to make up for his lack of scoring.

And again in transition he finds a teammate for an easy bucket.

 

i-1

DeMarcus Cousins, Kings (102-94 loss to Magic)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
 36  12-20 1-3  8-9   1  6  1  2  3 -3   33

 

We mentioned it with Karl Towns earlier, but big men aren’t supposed to be able to make moves like this. Incredible.

Three solid possessions in a row for Boogie here.

 

 

i

Willie Cauley-Stein, Kings (102-94 loss to Magic)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
 25  2-5  0-0 0-0   0  1  1  0  1  4  -5

I have a dream, that one day, people will stop thinking they can jump with William C. Stein. Nice pass here from Cousins as well.

 

Skal Labissiere, Kings (DNP in 102-94 loss to Magic)

Another DNP-Coach’s Decision for the rookie from Haiti. I think he’s got a long way to go before he’s earning minutes on a nightly basis for the Kings.

i-1

James Young, Celtics (128-122 loss to Cavaliers)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
 2  0-0  0-0  0-0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  +8

i

DeAndre Liggins, Cavaliers (128-122 win over Celtics)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
 1  0-0  0-0  0-0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  1  -4  0

Both of the former wing players for Coach Cal subbed in for the last few minutes of the game. Both failed to record any stat during their time, outside of DeAndre Liggins’ one personal foul.

i

Enes Kanter, Thunder ( loss to Warriors)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
 3  0-1  0-0 0-0   0  0  0  0  0  1  -11  0

Kanter airballed his only shot, and after an extended jawing match with Kevin Durant, he did not check back into the game. Thinking that Billy Donovan was probably punishing Kanter for lighting a fire under Durant.

Here’s tonight’s schedule of NBA games:

  • Atlanta Hawks at Washington Wizards, 7pm
  • Miami Heat at Toronto Raptors, 7:30pm
  • Charlotte Hornets at Brooklyn Nets, 7:30pm
  • New York Knicks at Chicago Bulls, 8pm

    How the hell has Murray not made a single field goal this season? Is it a matter of limited play? If last night’s game is any indication, it looks like he’s been getting his shots. Hopefully they start falling for the kid. We all know he can get buckets in a hurry.

      bigbluecrew That’s why it is in the form of a question, not a statement. You must have difficulty reading.
