Kyle Kuzma 33 Points Full Highlights (12/10/2018)

The question of “is LeBron holding Kyle Kuzma back” can now be definitively answered, and the answer is a definitive “no”. In a similar amount of minutes as last season, Kuzma is scoring more points, more efficiently. We are seeing right now how a player like Tristan Thompson was being held back by LeBron, and…

Justise Winslow Career High 28 Points/6 Threes Full Highlights (12/10/2018)

When Justise Winslow, walking through a back hallway of the Staples Center, felt himself get grabbed and pulled to the side by somebody with a very strong grip, his first thought was that he was going to get murdered. He instinctively tried to pull away, but his abductor quickly got him in a tight bearhug…

Monte Morris 20 Points Full Highlights (12/10/2018)

OFFICIAL MONTE MORRIS ASSIST-TO-TURNOVER RATIO WATCH UPDATE: Monte Morris’ assist-to-turnover ratio is now at 5.68 to 1, dropping slightly because of his 5-assist, 1-turnover performance tonight. I previously and ignorantly thought his incredible safety with the ball was a fluke, but apparently he was doing the same exact thing in college, even setting records in…

Jonathon Simmons 18 Points Full Highlights (12/10/2018)

Like a lot of players this year, Jonathon Simmons has been bad. I have noticed, and I’m sure Magic fans have noticed, but that might be it for members of the “I’m aware that J-Simms is sucking dong this season” club. Normally the NBA intelligentsia (and ignorami) love to trash players who are performing way…

Marcus Morris 31 Points Full Highlights (12/10/2018)

The Boston Celtics have re-found their mojo from last season. It was just a matter of time; they’ve got the talent level of a Finals contender. I’m not too sad about that, because I don’t feel any real rivalry (yet) between them and the Bucks, but I am sad in a secondary sort of way:…

Jalen Brunson 17 Points Full Highlights (12/10/2018)

OFFICIAL 2018 DRAFTEES FROM VILLANOVA POWER RANKINGS 1. Jalen Brunson 2. Mikal Bridges 3. Donte DiVincenzo 4. Omari Spellman Two starts for Jalen Brunson, two huge (for him) games, two wins. There’s a trend here that I’ll give you some time to figure out. I’m ignoring the random start he had back in October because…

Myles Turner 26 Points/5 Blocks Full Highlights (12/10/2018)

Attention pizza purveyors: if you offer pesto as one of your toppings, you should put in big letters next to its location in the list “WARNING: MAY OVERPOWER THE ENTIRE REST OF THE PIZZA WITH ITS BASILINESS”. At my old pizza place (RIP), I liked getting pesto with pepperoni. That’s it. Two toppings, and it…

Josh Jackson 18 Points/8 Assists Full Highlights (12/10/2018)

The so-called “sophomore slump” is real for Josh Jackson. There are a lot of ways to interpret stats, to manipulate stats to create new stats, to discover hidden truth in stats that may disagree with the eye test. For Jackson, I don’t think I can find a single stat that shows him in a positive…

Nikola Jokic 27 Points Full Highlights (12/10/2018)

Okay, everyone’s been saying it for a month now, but we’re super serious this time: Nikola Jokic has to step up. Right now. Before, it wasn’t so urgent, because the Nuggets still had most of their players, but the injuries are really piling up. Jokic is the last above-average starting player remaining besides Jamal Murray…
