Former Cats in the NBA

It was a busy night for our former Wildcats. Some excelled and some did not. For the complete list…look down.

Eric Bledsoe- The Clippers BLEW OUT the Golden State Warriors 115-89 and Bledsoe saw substantial minutes (30). In that time, he poured in 17 Points, grabbed 3 Rebounds, doled out 3 Assists, had a Block and Steal. His numbers have been down the past couple weeks since he went down hard on the floor with his spectacular trailing block in the game against the Kings. Once that heals, he’ll have his explosion back.

Rajon Rondo- Another day, another Triple-Double for Rondo. I don’t keep up with those stats but he has them with the frequency that Jason Kidd used to a few years ago. I know some players have had more, but as PG’s go, he is filling them up. Rajon finished with 14-11-10 in the Win.

Doron Lamb- Lamb has been getting a little more court action of late but last night, it was very little. In 3 minutes, he finished with 1 Assist and took no shots.

Patrick Patterson- Patrick is still coming off the bench, trying to claim his starting job back after his injury and his production is doing the talking. He shot better than 50% again and contributed 15-6-2 in the Rockets Win. If the team keeps winning with him coming off the bench, he may be stuck there…and I’m sure he can live with that so long as they keep on.

DeMarcus Cousins- I don’t know what’s gotten in to Big Cuz, but he is taking it out on the rest of the NBA. He had another MONSTER game last night against the streaking Brooklyn Nets. He’s been playing with a fire that hasn’t been seen from him in his life and his numbers tell the tale. Last night he went off for 28-11-3.

Chuck Hayes- Unfortunately for Chuck, with DeMarcus playing like a man posessed, his minutes are taking the hit. In six minutes last night, he missed all four of his shots and grabbed 2 Rebounds.

Anthony Davis- Davis has been struggling Offensively of late and last night against the Mavs was no exception. He only logged 12 minutes where he scored 4 Points and grabbed 1 Rebound. He had no blocks or assists. He’ll get better as the season moves along and he develops more. Fortunately for him, the Hornets took out the Mavericks.
