Former Kentucky Wildcats in the NBA: 02-14-2013 (Valentines Day) Edition


Busy night last night for the former beloved Wildcats. Some struggled and one excelled. Check em out!Michael Kidd-Gilchrist- A few games back from the devastating concussion that \sidelined MKG, he’s still finding his game. In the blowout loss to Indiana, he scored 2 points, grabbed 2 rebounds, blocked 2 shots and one case of thievery.

Brandon Knight- In a match up of Calipari’s first two UK PG’s, Brandon squared off against John Wall. Wall had better stats but Knight’s Pistons came away with the victory. Knight had 6 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists, and a steal.

DeMarcus Cousins- OK so that was a disaster for the Kings.  I’m not sure what more Boogie can do to help his team other than eliminate his turnover problem.  He had 5 last night in the 23 point loss to the Mavs.  He finished with 17 points, 13 rebounds, and 2 assists to go along with those 5 turnovers.

Chuck Hayes- Hayes played sparingly last night (5 minutes) but managed to pull 2 rebounds and commit one brazen act of thievery.

Eric Bledsoe- And just like that, Bledsoe’s playing time gets drastically cut.  Well not “just like that” but when Chris Paul comes back, you know it’s coming.  Still though, Bledsoe 2 points, 2 rebounds, 3 assists, and a block in the match up against his former teammate, Patrick Patterson.

John Wall- Wall left some huge shoes to fill when he went pro and he continues to excel back from injury. In a match up against Brandon Knight he had 16 points, 3 rebounds, 9 assists, 1 block, and 2 steals. But John must shoot a better percentage to have the impact the Wizards need him to.

Marquis Teague- The longer Rose and Hinrich are out, the better for Teague. He’s finally able to showcase some of the ability that made him a cog in the machine of Kentucky last season. In the loss to the Celtics, he finished 5 points, 2 rebounds, and 3 assists.

Patrick Patterson- In the game against the Clippers last night, Patterson squared off against his former teammate, Eric Bledsoe.  And while Patterson scored the stat victory, Bledsoe won the game.  Patterson finished wiht 12 points, 6 rebounds, and a block.

Anthony Davis- Monster, monster, monster game from Mr. Davis last night against the Portland Trailblazers. In only 28 minutes, the rook went 10-17 for 21 points to go along with 11 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 blocks, and a steal. His Hornets CRUSHED the Trailblazers 99-63.

Enes Kanter- Big Enes is strong coming off the bench for Utah. In the win against Minnesota, he scored 10 points, and grabbed 3 rebounds to go along with a black and steal. Meager numbers but a win nonetheless.

Keith Bogans- Since being sent to the bench, Bogans has picked up his offensive game significantly. In the defenseless blowout against the Nuggets, he finished with 6 points and a rebound but that was on only 4 shots and in only 13 minutes. Not bad.
