NBA Cats Return from the All-Star Break with a Vengeance

Every Saturday morning, I debate whether or not to include the NBA Cats’ Friday night performances with the wake-up, or give them their own post.  Today they deserve their own post.

DeMarcus Cousins was filthy.  Boogie dropped 37 points, grabbed 20 rebounds and blocked 4 shots.  He’s only the third player this season with a 30-20 game.  He wasn’t just banging in the post, he was breaking ankles on the break.

As usual, there wasn’t just one former Wildcat crushing it in the NBA.  A brief rundown:

  • Boogie’s point guard, Rajon Rondo, was one assist away from his sixth triple-double, scoring 24 points, grabbing 10 boards and dishing out 9 assists in the Kings win over the Nuggets.
  • John Wall wasn’t far from a triple-double either, scoring 22 points, with 8 rebounds and 8 assists in a win over the Pistons.
  • The Lakers lost again, but Julius Randle still pulled in a double-double, scoring 11 points and grabbing 15 rebounds.  Just like Julius, it wasn’t a great shooting night for Karl Towns, knocking down only 4-15 from the field.  However, he also got a double-double, sharing the same stat line as Randle — 11 points and 15 rebounds.
  • In a matchup of former Cats, Nerlens Noel and Anthony Davis both had arguably their best games of the season.  Noel scored a season-high 24 points while pulling in 9 rebounds, but it wasn’t enough to outdo AD.  Davis had 34 points and 7 rebounds to lead his team to a victory.  The most impressive two points of the night:
