Bojan Bogdanovic 30 Points/7 Threes Full Highlights (4/20/2018)

‚ÄúDear Father, I hope prosperity finds you well in the homeland. I know it is tough to only see me in the images in the newspaper, but I think of you and Baba every day. And Lucija, tell her again how I miss her, how my heart yearns for her smile. I would write to…

Al-Farouq Aminu 21 Points Full Highlights (4/19/2018)

How unfair that one of the Blazers’ role-players actually decided to show up for this game, yet the Blazers still lost big to the Pelicans thanks to the combined efforts of Lameian Brickard C.J. McChuckbrick. Al-Farouq Aminu’s 21 point in this game is by far the most of any non-Lillard, non-McCollum Blazer in this series….

Nikola Mirotic 30 Points Full Highlights (4/19/2018)

Nikola Mirotic was walking through towards the home locker room at the Smoothie King Center when he thought he heard a voice whisper his name urgently. “Pssst! Niko! Niko, over here!” Stopping in his tracks and looking around, he couldn’t see anybody who would have said his name. He was about to start walking again…

Justise Winslow 19 Points/2 Blocks Full Highlights (4/19/2018)

The Miami Heat got a season-high’s worth of points from Justise Winslow in the first half and still lost. That’s 19 free, unexpected, no-strings-attached points, but with him scoring his usual zero in the second half, they ended up getting crushed. Winslow, for his part, contributed in other ways, like purposefully crushing Joel Embiid’s specially-constructed…

Dario Saric 21 Points Full Highlights (4/19/2018)

Dario Saric has been the leading shot-attempter for the 76ers in the last two games, and only missed out on the first one because Marco Belinelli got in a really chucky mood. I know he’s good, but is he so good that he has to be the number-one guy on offense? What’s going on here?…

Marco Belinelli 21 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (4/19/2018)

Once again, Marco Belinelli made nothing but tough shots tonight. If these ever stop going in for him, he’s going to become fairly useless, but for now, he’s bailing out the 76ers on a whole bunch of possessions and swinging games in their direction. The commentators mentioned his “championship experience”, which I feel is kind…

Derrick Favors 20 Points Full Highlights (4/18/2018)

There was a brief period of time around the year 2015 where Derrick Favors looked like he might be breaking out into an All-Star-esque player. Then the Jazz shook up their roster and he became, like, the fourth option on offense whenever he was on the floor, and he didn’t look as much like an…

Gerald Green 21 Points Full Highlights (4/18/2018)

The Rockets had four different players attempt at least ten three-pointers in this game. That’s the sort of obscure stat that I don’t know how to check for, other than scraping basketball-reference for every box-score in their database and giving it to my kitty Japurri Purrker for purrther analysis, but it’s gotta be a record,…

Nemanja Bjelica 16 Points Full Highlights (4/18/2018)

Nemanja Bjelica’s role in this game, apparently, was to come in during garbage time and score enough points (14 in the final four minutes) to ensure that the Timberwolves didn’t end up with a completely embarrassing point total. Serbs will take this performance as a sign that Bjelica deserves more minutes in game three, and…

Donovan Mitchell 28 Points Full Highlights (4/18/2018)

Donovan Mitchell is taking his role as Utah’s primary scorer seriously. Very seriously. He is at the pinnacle of seriosity right now: 47 shots attempted over the two games, with 5 assists. Now that’s dedication! This is the time when I would normally complain about him being a chucker, and it’s not an invalid complaint,…
