ht- Pistons win! Pistons win! Seriously, they beat the Cleveland Cavaliers even though Brandon Knight was noticeably off. He’s coming off some injuries and dealing with some others as the rigorous NBA season comes to a close. He finished with 7 points on 2-11 shooting to go along with 5 rebounds, 2 assists, a steal and a turnover.
Doron Lamb- Doron had a little extra in the tank last night as his Magic squared off against the Milwaukee Bucks, the team who drafted him out of Kentucky then traded him to Orlando midway through this season. He played nearly triple his average minutes (11) and he finished the OT strong. The kid is a closer and a big shot taker. He finished with 16 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, and a steal as the Magic took down the Bucks.
John Wall- Ok so the only people who believed the Wizards had a shot in this game were in the Wizards locker room. Despite the Heat not having LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, or Udonis Haslem, John Wall couldn’t pull his team through. Since coming back from his knee injury he has been on a tear and is showing everyone why Kentucky fans loved him so much. He was always a next level talent who should command max $$. He finished a rebound shy of a triple-double, going for 17 points, 9 rebounds and 11 assists.
Jodie Meeks- Jodie was supplanted as a starter by former Louisville Cardinal, Earl Clark but he still played a significant amount of minutes despite the demotion. The former standout SG logged 21 minutes, finishing with 3 points, 2 steals, a rebound, and an assist. Lakers won 113-106 to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Anthony Davis- In a meaningless game as playoffs are concerned, the Hornets not only lost to Sacramento but they also lost Anthony Davis to a left knee sprain. He played three and a half quarters before the injury and recorded 13 points, 11 rebounds, and 2 assists.
Darius Miller- In limited action against the Kings, Miller was 0-1 with no rebounds, assists, steals, or blocks.
DeMarcus Cousins- Boogie’s games are must watch and must read. He’s an enigma. A man-sized boy playing a man’s game, Cousins imposes his will whenever he wants but no one ever knows when that will be. Last night he scored 10 points in the first quarter but only 1 point the final 3 before fouling out. He also had 4 rebounds and 5 assists.
Chuck Hayes- Chuck had a pretty solid outing in the victory over the Hornets. In 17 minutes of action he had 4 points, 2 rebounds and 4 assists.
Eric Bledsoe- The Clippers are rolling and Bledsoe is among those driving the train. Playing behind Chris Paul minutes are tough to come by at times but his value doesn’t go down. in a 16 point beatdown of the Timberwolves, Eric had 3 points, 3 assists and a rebound.
