Zion Williamson 15 Points/1 Dunk Full Highlights (1/24/2020)

Zion Williamson is getting a late start in the ROTY of the Year race, late enough that he’s probably not even going to be in contention for the award. Then again, the voters don’t necessarily have any idea who the best rookie is and why it’s Ja Morant, so I’m never really surprised by the…

Zion Williamson 22 Points/4 Threes Pelicans Debut Full Highlights (1/22/2020)

With 5:23 left in the fourth quarter, after several false starts, the Pelicans subbed Zion Williamson out of the game. He had just scored 17 straight points, including four three-pointers, in the span of three minutes, bringing his team back from a 10-point deficit against the Spurs. He never got put back in the game,…

Nicolo Melli 15 Points Full Highlights (1/20/2020)

Nicolo Melli: is he Andrea Bargnani 2.0? Let’s run down a list of Bargnani’s most notable attributes to see if Mell in a Cell can stack up: Italian? Check. Shoots threes? Check. Shoots midrange jimbos? Check. Too soft/slow to play meaningful defense at the NBA level? Check. Draft bust? Check. (Melli was such a bust…

Derrick Favors 22 Points/0 Missed Field Goals Full Highlights (1/18/2020)

By my count, Derrick Favors has now made 19 shots in a row. He made all 10 of them tonight, and made his last 9 attempts last game. I actually went back and looked at his last miss to see what kind of apocalyptic calamity could have possibly caused him to fail to successfully place…

Derrick Favors 21 Points/3 Blocks Full Highlights (1/16/2020)

Everyone’s all upset about the iffy foul call on an inbound with 0.2 seconds left that sent this game into overtime, but I sympathize with the refs on this one. They, like me, just want to see more buckets. I’m surprised that so many people are protesting the prospect of more buckets, but that’s just…

Nicolo Melli 20 Points Full Highlights (1/13/2020)

Nicolo “Italian Santa Claus” Melli set the world on fire when he scored 14 points in his NBA debut, broadcast for everyone to see on TNT. The highlights of that performance were the first I made for this season. Thousands of vids will pass through my channel, but there can be only one that is…

Jahlil Okafor 25 Points/5 Assists/3 Blocks Full Highlights (1/13/2020)

The word on the street (an area that DownToBuck is well acquainted with) is that Zion Williamson, after half a season spent sitting on the bench in a suit, is going to play as soon as this week. But you know what? That dude can take all the time he needs coming back. Take a…

Frank Jackson 22 Points Full Highlights (1/11/2020)

This game is a STATEMENT GAME for Frank Jackson. However, the statement isn’t being made to NBA fans or even Pelicans fans. Those groups don’t care enough about Frank Jackson to heed a statement from him no matter how emphatically it is delivered. No, the statement is being made to Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry, and…

Jaxson Hayes 20 Points Full Highlights (1/11/2020)

Ever since the first game of the season where Jaxson Hayes scored nineteen points, I have had an alert system set up in my house so that I know when he reaches the milestone of scoring twenty points in a game. I’ve got it all: claxons, flashing lights, text messages to my phone, confetti, anything…

Jaxson Hayes 18 Points Full Highlights (1/10/2020)

It doesn’t feel like it, but Jaxson Hayes is currently suffering from the dreaded “MCW-itis”, the condition where an NBA player peaks in their first career game. This disease is (as you could probably discern) named after Michael Carter-Williams, who famously devastated the Heatles in his NBA debut and then only went downhill. Another famous…
