Former Cats in the NBA: 01-20-2013 Edition

John Wall- Wall was looking forward to playing against his former backcourt mate last night.  Unfortunately he didn’t come out on the right side of things.  The great thing is that Wall is playing better than before his knee surgery.  He played 31 minutes in a reserve role scoring 24 points, grabbing 3 boards to go along with his 6 assists.  Expect him to start soon.

Eric Bledsoe- Lobcity got a break last night against the Wizards because they’re terrible.  Eric logged 18 minutes and shot 50% for 11 points and pulled 7 rebounds to go along with an assist.  It was all he needed.

Enes Kanter- #FreeEnes was huge for the Jazz off the bench.  He came in on fire hitting 7-8 for 15 and grabbing 5 rebounds, along with an assist.  Utah won.

Patrick Patterson- Houston got blasted by the Timberwolves last night and Patterson didn’t offer much help.  He took only three shots for 3 points and 4 rebounds.

DeMarcus Cousins- Boogie is a man in the NBA and since he came back from his suspension earlier in the season, he’s been a BEAST.  In last night’s game against Charlotte he bested MKG by tallying 17 points, 10 rebounds, and 4 assists in the Win.

Chuck Hayes- Hayes didn’t see the court much last night and with Boogie on his tear, I don’t expect him to for the forseeable future.   He finished 0-3 for no points, rebounds or assists in his 6 minutes of action.

Anthony Davis- In the loss to Golden State, the real Anthony Davis made an appearance.  We Kentucky fans were spoiled beyond belief with how he controlled games on the on both sides of the court, and he did just that last night.  The only knock on him was hitting only 2-7 FT’s.  He finished with 20 points on 9/12 shooting, 12 rebounds and 4 assists.  All for naught, though, as the Hornets fell.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist- Unfortunately for MKG, he ran into a great former Cat last night in Boogie.  Sacramento had him all out of sorts.  In 18 minutes, MKG had 4 points, 3 rebounds, and 2 assists.  Charlotte will need much more from him going forward.
