Taj Gibson Career High 28 Points Full Highlights (2/15/2018)

Karl-Anthony Towns meekly approached his teammate Taj Gibson in the locker room, wordlessly holding out an envelope in front of him. Taj looked at Karl-Anthony coldly. “Whatever that is, I don’t want it.” Karl-Anthony held the envelope out further, but when Taj still didn’t take it, he slipped it inside Taj’s gym bag. “It’s an…

Julius Randle 23 Points Full Highlights (2/15/2018)

I was told, repeatedly, that Julius Randle was going to be traded. Yet the trade deadline is long past, and Randle is still in a Lakers uniform? If the Lakers hated him so much (as also has been claimed repeatedly), why didn’t they take a second-round pick for him and move on with their rebuild?…

Tyler Zeller 14 Points Full Highlights (2/15/2018)

Tyler Zeller in 30 minutes tonight: 14 points, +9 (only Buck with a positive plus/minus) Thon Maker in 17 minutes tonight: 4 points, -20 (worst plus/minus on the team) Now, I know full well that is dangerous to make sweeping assumptions based on single-game plus/minus, but I think this data point illustrates a larger trend:…

Jamal Murray 26 Points Full Highlights (2/15/2018)

The Nuggets commentators kept bringing up Jamal Murray’s 36-point performance in last year’s Rising Stars challenge. I guess he’s doing it again this year? That’s all fine, good for him, except I don’t think those commentators realized that NO ONE gives even one half of a crap about the Rising Stars game. You’d be hard…

Gary Harris 28 Points Full Highlights (2/15/2018)

The Bucks apparently still have problems defending the three, because they just let the Nuggets can 25 triples while they stood around and waited for Giannis to bail them out. The Harrises accounted for 7 of them, 5 of them from Gary Harris who is the Harris who we are talking about right now. Devin…

Ivica Zubac 19 Points Full Highlights (2/15/2018)

After his multitude of great performances last year, I was fairly hyped for Ivica “Zu Alcindor” Zubac, and I think it’s fair to say that a ton of other people were as well. He wasn’t amazing or anything, but he was a young big with plenty of offensive potential. I knew the Lakers were going…

Nikola Jokic Triple Double 30 Pts/15 Rebs/17 Asts Full Highlights (2/15/2018)

Nikola Jokic absentmindedly grabbed his mail out of his mailbox and walked into his house. His thoughts were focused on what he would do during the extended break that surrounded the NBA’s All-Star festivities: it was between playing video games all week to make a dent in his Steam backlog or lying around and doing…

Isaiah Taylor 13 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (2/14/2018)

Good news is, I eventually noticed that Isaiah Taylor had 13 points and 7 assists (way more than enough for highlights). Bad news is, I noticed too late for anyone to care anymore. The next day’s worth of games is about to start, no one cared about this Hawks-Pistons matchup in the first place, and…

Ian Mahinmi 17 Points/3 Blocks Full Highlights (2/14/2018)

Big shout-out goes to Ian Mahinmi for raising his free-throw percentage to a blistering 73 percent after being a sub-60 percent shooter the last few years. Everyone talks about Andre Drummond transforming into a way better player because of his improved foul shooting, but no one is speaking the same way about Mahinmi. Neither are…

Brandon Ingram 21 Points Full Highlights (2/14/2018)

Brandon Ingram stood at a fork in the road in his career. On one road, the sign read “Giannis Antetokounmpo”, the other, “Kevin Durant”. Ingram shrugged, remembered how messed up his jumpshot form was, and stepped confidently onto the Giannis path. For real though, those Durant comparisons were probably only based on how skinny he…
