Nicolas Brussino 11 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (4/9/2017)

Nicolas Brussino has certainly showed some flashes of skill in his rookie season. He can shoot sometimes and lately he’s been passing a little bit too. He went undrafted just like me so there weren’t a ton of expectations placed on him, other than me expecting that he would be the next Carlos Delfino on…

Yogi Ferrell 21 Points Full Highlights (4/9/2017)

Believe me or don’t, but this is Yogi Ferrell’s second-best scoring game after that 9-triple outburst he had on national TV. That game really messed with people’s perceptions of him, maybe irreversibly. And who can blame them? Unless you’re a Mavs fan or a ravenous highlights-consumer or a fantasy-fanatic, literally the only thing you’ve seen…

Jarrod Uthoff 12 Points Full Highlights (4/9/2017)

Several months of highlights, over 1500 vids worth, featuring endless career-highs and season-highs and actually mostly just a whole bunch of crap, it’s all been leading up to this. Jarrod Uthoff scoring 12 points in the NBA. This is why DownToBuck exists. Do you feel it? The feeling of a brand-new scrub asserting himself in…

Dwight Powell Career High 21 Points Full Highlights (4/9/2017)

Dwight “Dwight Power” Powell, as the season had gone along, has been attempting to make the difficult transition from “big guy who can only dunk” to “big who can dunk but also shoot long jumpers”. Until tonight, I wouldn’t say that his attempts had been met with much success. He could hit the jumper, sometimes,…

Nicolas Brussino 13 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (4/4/2017)

The Mavericks, in all their tanking glory, just ran a lineup with Nicolas Brussino as the point guard for a big chunk of the fourth quarter tonight. Him being the PG probably wasn’t even the biggest detriment to the lineup: that would be Jarrod Uthoff and A.J. Hammons. They ended up losing, of course. Can’t…

J.J. Barea 20 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (3/19/2017)

Now that J.J. Barea is back in the lineup, there’s no need for the Mavericks to continue cycling through D-League point guards on ten-days. A point guard rotation of Barea/Ferrell/Harris kind of sucks a lot, but it at least has guys who can play enough minutes where you don’t need to go out and grab…

Nicolas Brussino 11 Points Full Highlights (3/15/2017)

Every time a little-played rookie makes a shot in their limited minutes, the commentators bleat endlessly about “confidence”. This is especially true for rookies who aren’t shooting especially well. Rookies like Nicolas Brussino. But what if Brussino DIDN’T have confidence in this game? What if he was just jacking up shots because they were open?…

Yogi Ferrell 17 Points Full Highlights (3/10/2017)

The Mavericks are clearly emboldened by their success in finding Yogi Ferrell. They’re cycling through D-Leaguers so fast that I’m starting to lose track of which 10-dayers are actually on their team and which are long gone. I guess that’s the right strategy, because for every Yogi you have 10 Ben Bentils. Gotta maintain as…

Quinn Cook 10 Points/3 Assists Full Highlights (3/7/2017)

Yawn. Who cares about some lanky Euro guy scoring his 30,000th point? The REAL highlight of last night’s Mavs-Lakers game was getting to watch a thing called “Quinn Cook” score ten points on 4-of-6 shooting. You know, truth be told, I’m pretty sure Quinn Cook could score 30,000 points in the NBA if you simply…

Yogi Ferrell 16 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (3/7/2017)

Apparently other stuff happened in tonight’s Mavericks game besides Dirk Nowitzki hitting 30,000 for his career. I know! It didn’t seem right to me either, but I looked at the play-by-play just now and there were a bunch of non-Dirk entries there. The boxscore said Yogi Ferrell scored 16 points and had 7 assists, but…
