Former Kentucky Wildcats In The NBA: 3/17 Edition

Saturday night’s games were pretty quiet for our former Cats, there were only 6 NBA games last night and only 4 former Cats playing. Here’s a recap of last night’s games.

Washington Wizards 127
Phoenix Suns 105

John Wall-Guard-Washington
Washington wanted desperately to avoid an 11th straight loss to the Phoenix Suns and they did just that Saturday night. Washington has won its last 4 games at home and 3rd straight overall. John Wall had another good night going 8-11 for 17 points, 11 assists, 5 rebounds and 3 steals in 32:00 minutes of play. Walls teammate, Martell Webster was the star of the night scoring a career high 34 points. One thing that I took notice of was that the Phoenix Suns bench outscored their starters, 60-45. The Suns Michael Beasley came off the bench to score 21 points.

Charlotte Bobcats 88
Boston Celtics 105

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist-Charlotte

Unfortunately the Bobcats are now 14-52 on season play. Charlotte had beaten the Celtics in their last two match-ups but Boston was not going to let that happen tonight even without Rajon Rondo(torn right ACL)or Kevin Garnett(strained left thigh muscle). Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had a quite night on 3-7 shooting for 6 points, 2 rebounds and 2 steals.

Memphis Grizzlies 84
Utah Jazz 90

Tayshaun Prince-Forward-Memphis
Enes Canter-Center-Utah

Memphis fell to the Jazz last night but not without a fight. Marc Gasol even tried using his shoe. Somehow Gasol losses his shoe but picks it up and continues on to play defense. As Derrick Favors drives to the basket, Gasol uses his shoe by swiping at the ball, thus being called for a personal foul. Tayshaun Prince finished the night logging 32:56 minutes of play and scoring 9 points. He also had 7 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal for the losing Grizzlies. Enes Canter only played about 10:00 minutes for 8 points, 1 rebound and 1 steal. He was 4-4 from the free throw line.
