Justise Winslow 21 Points/9 Assists Full Highlights (12/8/2018)

I’ve previously been skeptical of the “Justise Winslow is a point guard” movement, but the stats aren’t lying to me and my eyeballs aren’t lying to me either. Here’s what the stats say: Winslow had nine assists in this game. Here’s what my eyeballs say: Winslow is competent at running pick and rolls, which is…

Justise Winslow 20 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (12/7/2018)

Attention future parents: if you think that your future child has any chance at all of being a high draft pick in the NBA, take great care in picking a name for that child that cannot be easily transformed to contain the word “bust”. Write the name down on paper and then try to replace…

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…

Justise Winslow 18 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (4/4/2018)

I’m really digging Justise Winslow’s high-arcing one-foot-way-forward shooting form this year. He decided that whatever he was doing wasn’t working, so something something lining up the guide hand or whatever. His free-throws still aren’t very good, and I’m skeptical that his three-point shooting is for real, but until he regresses severely next year, I’ll call…

Justise Winslow 15 Points Full Highlights (3/12/2018)

How far above their season average does a player have to score to earn the distinction of having had a “scoring outburst”? Because I’ve been sitting here looking at the Heat-Blazers boxscore for about fifteen minutes now, and all I can think about is how Justise Winslow might have just had a scoring outburst and…

Justise Winslow 17 Points Full Highlights (3/1/2018)

Justise Winslow seems to have accepted his fate as a poor offensive player; his shots per minute are way down this season, and the only thing keeping him from being totally useless on that end is the fact that he can sometimes hit threes now. 43 percent, even on limited attempts, is really good, even…

Justise Winslow 17 Points Full Highlights (2/24/2018)

Remember when Danny Ainge almost traded a gigantic package of draft picks to the Hornets in order to receive a draft pick that would guarantee him the ability to draft Justise “Bustise” Winslow? If that had gone down, the Celtics would probably be sitting at the eleventh seed in the East and Winslow would be…

Justise Winslow 16 Points Full Highlights (2/5/2018)

Heat fans have, mercifully, stopped crowing so much about how they stole Justise Winslow in the draft. I think the logic was, since Danny Ainge threw his basketful of picks at the Hornets to get the 9th pick and draft him, he must be some sort of super-stud that would immediately transform a team. Turns…

Justise Winslow 15 Points Full Highlights (12/9/2017)

It’s games like this that remind me that I shouldn’t be so quick to give up on players, even when they play like total busts, as Justise Winslow did last season. His win-shares were negative last year, the team was 4-14 when he played, and his injury might have been a blessing in the skies…
