Former Cats in the NBA: 1-17-2013 Edition

The unemployment line is not often filled with former Kentucky Wildcat stars who still have game and last night gyms across the country were littered with them.

John Wall- In Wall’s third game back he showed why he was the #1 overall pick.  In the rematch between two of our recent greats and an oldie, Wall had a double-double with 14 points and 10 assists.

Rajon Rondo- Another triple-double was needed to salvage the game against the Hornets but it was not to be.  In the match-up featuring two of UK’s most uniquely gifted players, Rondo finished with 7-3-11 in the loss.

Patrick Patterson- Houston, we have a problem.  Embroiled in a four-game skid, Patterson and the Rockets found themselves in a dog fight with Dallas.  Despite Patterson starting and scoring 9 points and grabbing 5 rebounds, the skid continues and is now up to five games.

DeMarcus Cousins- Not to be outdone by his buddy Wall, Boogie had a monster double-double with 21 points, 16 rebounds, and 5 assists.

Chuck Hayes- Playing with two other former Cats had to be interesting for Hayes.  He didn’t have the same impact as either but he does what he’s supposed to which is play tough and rebound.  He finished with 2 points, 4 rebounds, and an assist.

Anthony Davis- It looks like Anthony Davis is feeling more comfortable in the game as he got the start tonight.  He bested Rondo’s production by posting a double-double of 10 points and 10 rebounds to go with an assist, steal, and two blocks.

DeAndre Liggins- This game was over after the first quarter so Liggins was able to log some court time.  He finished with 6 points, 1 rebound, 2 assists, 2 steals, and a block.  Needless to say, he was everywhere.

Keith Bogans- Brooklyn got popped pretty good by Atlanta, and Bogans didn’t help their cause.  He whiffed on all six of his shots while recording no stats, save for a foul and turnover.  Rough night for one of UK’s greats.
