JaVale McGee 21 Points/7 Dunks Full Highlights (3/2/2019)

You can say what you want about the Lakers’ loss to the lowly Suns, which leaves the team having lost four of their last five, but if you happen to say something along the lines of “it was JaVale McGee’s fault that the Lakers lost,” then you’re wrong. Here’s the list of people and factors…

Brandon Ingram 31 Points Full Highlights (3/1/2019)

It’s that time of year again. The All-Star festivities have come and gone, and with their departure Brandon Ingram can begin his annual post-All-Star-break surge. His point totals in those past five games: 27, 29, 32, 23, and 31. Those are some nice numbers. Those are the kind of numbers you can point to and…

Brandon Ingram 32 Points Full Highlights (2/25/2019)

This is like the best timeline for DownToBuck. It’s good for two reasons: Reason one: Brandon Ingram is playing well, which means I get to watch an exciting young player go out there and get buckets while making LeBron James look like LeDefer Blames. I’ve been hard on Ingram in the past, and I still…

Brandon Ingram 29 Points Full Highlights (2/23/2019)

There is a fact here that I’m going to have to face even though I definitely don’t want to face it: Brandon Ingram has been playing pretty well lately. Stabbing pains are shooting through my entire body after writing that. I almost want to go back and delete it and tell the whole world that…

Brandon Ingram 27 Points Full Highlights (2/21/2019)

I often come away from Brandon Ingram videos feeling like he’s some kind of midrange specialist who can punish players with his smooth in-between game. That just shows that even somebody like me, somebody who perfectly understands the power that a well-crafted highlight video can wield, will occasionally fall victim to the deceptions of the…

Kyle Kuzma 39 Points Full Highlights (2/10/2019)

Your old pal DownToBuck has a long history of suffering medical conditions when something cool is happening in the NBA. Most commonly I am afflicted by an elevated BHL (Blood Hype Level). All it takes is a player to score a bunch of points in a short amount of time and my BHL spikes. Symptoms…

JaVale McGee 21 Points/6 Dunks Full Highlights (2/10/2019)

Why do the Lakers keep bringing in replacements for JaVale McGee? First Tyson Chandler (who supposedly “defends” and “rebounds”, now Mike Muscala (who supposedly “shoots”). Here’s the deal: McGee doesn’t need a replacement. He’s a good, maybe even ideal, starting center for a team like the Lakers. And his whole asthma thing was blown way…

Kyle Kuzma 25 Points Full Highlights (2/7/2019)

Who even wants Anthony Davis? Not the Lakers, not the Pelicans, nobody. Maybe, MAYBE, the Celtics, but only because they lost to a chemistry-deprived and still-worried-about-getting-traded Lakers squad. AD is the unwanted man in the NBA. Personally, I would only take him on the Bucks if it was a straight swap for Thon Mak… oh…

Lance Stephenson 20 Points/1 Elbow Full Highlights (1/31/2019)

I wasn’t watching this game live, so I’m not fully aware of the ramifications of Lance Stephenson’s elbow to the face of Boban Marjanovic in the overtime period. All I know is he went up for a layup while swinging his elbow into Boban’s head, the refs blew the whistle, there was a lot of…

Brandon Ingram Career High 36 Points Full Highlights (1/29/2019)

Brandon Ingram made 16 shots tonight, a career-best. His points were also a career-best, but everyone knows that it’s buckets, not raw points, that are the true measure of how good a performance is. That’s why no one actually likes James Harden (they pretend to, but the truth will be revealed when Paul George wins…
