I can’t even tell from the stats or from these highlights whether Julius Randle had a good game or nah.
ARGUMENTS FOR JULIUS HAVING HAD A GOOD GAME:
-He scored 23 points. 23 points is a lot.
-He was nine of fifteen from the floor and five of sex from the welfare line
-He had fifteen rebounds
-He did not even attempt a three-pointer
-He sort of guaranteed a Lakers win with his final shot and displayed good awareness in getting it off on time
ARGUMENTS FOR JULIUS NOT HAVING HAD A G OOD GAME:
-He forced a lot of shots that he probably shouldn’t have, but they went in anyway
-He took a turnaround jumper in overtime. This is excusable in the first quarter but not in overtime
-He had seven turnovers to just two assists
-He fouled five times
-He was probably a ballhog because that’s what Lakers fans tell me he is
As you can see, there are five items in each category. Neither category has more items than the other. There is no way to tell whether Julius had a good game or if he didn’t have a good game. We’ll give him an “N/A” and leave it at that.
