Former Kentucky Wildcats in the NBA: 12/22 Edition

Our NBA Cats had a lot of action last night with mostly average performances by their standards. Anthony Davis was the top performer with a strong showing against Tim Duncan and the Spurs.

Doron Lamb 3 points- Lamb only had 6 minutes of playing time, but did manage to land a nice “and one” to make his playing time worthwhile in the Bucks win over the Celtics.

Rajon Rondo 6 points, 5 rebounds, 11 assists, 4 steals- Rondo played nearly the entire game with a well-rounded stat line to show for it. Rondo also received a technical foul showing his temper has not faded away at all.

Brandon Knight 15 points, 2 rebounds , 4 assists- The Pistons annihilated the Wizards in this game, and Knight was a big part of it. Detroit was +26 when Knight was on the floor for his 30 minutes of playing time.

Tayshaun Prince 8 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 block- Prince did not shoot the ball particularly well (3-13 FG) tonight, but it did not matter because the rest of the Pistons were on fire against the lowly Wizards

Anthony Davis 18 points, 11 rebounds, 1 steal, 1 block- Davis has played very well since his return from injury and tonight was no exception. Despite losing to the Spurs, Davis took on the future Hall of Famer Tim Duncan and excelled against him.

Darius Miller 1 rebound- Miller got very minimal playing time in the loss to the Spurs.

Demarcus Cousins 9 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, 1 block- The enigma known as Boogie Cousins continued Friday night as he showed flashes of brilliance yet visibly pouted for much of the game. Cousins was a no show for the Kings after halftime due to an altercation with his coach and only played 20 minutes total.

Eric Bledsoe 6 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 steals, 3 blocks- The Clippers won their 12th straight game and Bledsoe played outstanding on the defensive side of the ball. Unfortunately, he had seven turnovers in 19 minutes offensively.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist 12 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, 2 blocks- MKG came back to Earth after having a monster game  against Phoenix on 12/19. His contributions were not enough to take down the Warriors who improved to an impressive 18-9 on the season.
