It’s been a controversial week in the NBA this week with the suspension of of Metta World Peace after a vicious elbow to James Harden, but nonetheless the former Kentucky Wildcats look to finish their regular seasons on a good note. There were only five NBA games last night, and only four that involved former Kentucky Wildcats so there isn’t a lot to discuss, but here’s the recaps on how the former ‘Cats did:
Eric Bledsoe – Los Angeles Clippers (40-25) – After Chauncy Billups was lost due to an injury that sidelined him the rest of the season earlier in the year, former Kentucky Wildcat, Eric Bledsoe, started seeing more minutes. Those minutes are starting to level out though, as he only saw ten minutes of floor time in last night’s 109-102 loss to the Atlanta Hawks. Bledsoe made the most of his minutes as he scored four points, grabbed one rebound, and dished one assist. As the Clippers head into the playoffs, Bledsoe could be an essential part of their team in making a championship run.
DeMarcus Cousins – Sacramento Kings (21-44) – Cousins and the Kings gave the Oklahoma City Thunder all they could handle last night, but eventually fell short, losing 110-118. DeMarcus Cousins has had a breakout season this year for the Kings, and he continued his success last night by finishing the game with thirty-two points, seven rebounds, and two assists.
Enes Kanter – Utah Jazz (35-30) – Enes Kanter has not been a big minute guy for the Jazz this year and last night was no different. He only played seven minutes of the bench in their 100-88 win over the Phoenix Suns last night, but did what he could as he scored four points and grabbed one rebound.
