J.J. Redick 26 Points Full Highlights (3/4/2015)

J.J. Redick’s previous career high in attempted field goals was nineteen. This game, he attempted 27. So, my question is, what kind of twitter insult was he faced with in order for him to go out and try to prove himself so vigorously? It could be any one of these: Carl Dixon @cdix420 – Mar…

Jodie Meeks 20 Points/1 Dunk Full Highlights (3/4/2015)

Watching this game, I’m thinking: why can’t Jodie Meeks be just as good as Kyle Korver? Jodie’s mechanics are fast and consistent. He seems to love coming off of screens. He’s been a great shooter for several seasons now. But he doesn’t even start. KCP, with his out-of-rhythm three-point jacking, is the starter in Detoilet…

Dion Waiters 20 Points Full Highlights (3/4/2015)

“Hey, great game Dion,” congratulated Pablo, the janitor who cleaned up the locker room after games. “I keep telling my son, if he wants to learn how to do a stepback, all he has to do is watch you.” He was leaning on his mop now, reliving his memories of his son’s basketball exploits. Dion…

Andrew Wiggins 20 Points Full Highlights (3/4/2015)

This is my 19th Wiggins vid this season. Damn! DownToBuck definitely makes exceptions to his “scrubs only” when it comes to rookies. 19 highlight packages is the second most of any player for me this year, at the time of this writing. You can guess who is first. No, it’s not Ersan Ilyasova. Yes, I…

Isaiah Canaan Career High 31 Points/8 Threes Full Highlights (3/4/2015)

Isaiah Canaan, in addition to his career high 31 points with 8 treys, had 6 assists tonight. Amazing! An impressive scoring performance amplified by a player’s willingness to pass! So where are they? You watch this video, they aren’t there. What’s the deal, DownToBuck? I’ll tell you the deal, straight-up and unfiltered: a scoring performance…

Jonas Valanciunas 26 Points/1 Flagrant Foul Full Highlights (3/4/2015)

I could take the easy way out of this description and simply state that Jonas Valanciunas needs and deserves more minutes. That would be simple, quick, and pertinent. But I’m going to go a step further. Hashtags! #freeJonas #jonasBothers #fireCasey #lithuaniaIsTheBestBalticState #ValanchewOnMyNuts

Victor Oladipo Career High 38 Points Full Highlights (3/4/2015)

If this performance by Victor Oladipo had happened on another night, people would be a lot more hyped than they are actually gonna be. Looking at this game through the lens of Westbrook’s 49-point triple double makes it seem not very exciting at all. In reality, we should be getting super excited for Oladipo as…

Jordan Adams 13 Points Full Highlights (3/3/2015)

This is only the 18th appearance of the season for Jordan Adams. The contending Grizzlies have no place in the rotation for a rookie shooting guard. Except, maybe they do! Their bench is pretty bad when it comes to people who can go out and score you points. Vince Carter would fit the bill except…

Ersan Ilyasova 21 Points Full Highlights (3/3/2015)

Every year at the trade deadline I expect to see Ersan Ilyasova moved. He may not be what he once was, but to a maybe-less-informed GM he could be intriguing, as a big man who can theoretically shoot threes. Theoretically. I’m trying to decide which is the aberration: Ilyasova shooting a combined 45% from three…

Giannis Antetokounmpo 19 Points Full Highlights (3/3/2015)

Giannis Antetokounmpo is mixing it up a bit, as we get later in the season. Opposing defenses have figured out his old move, the “take a couple dribbles at the top of the key then drive no matter what the situation is”. He used to sometimes get by players with that move; now he usually…
