Christian Wood Career High 23 Points/6 Blocks Full Highlights (3/26/2019)

Sigh… the Bucks give up on another promising young player. Shades of Tobias Harris (but not Thon Maker). They had this guy, this “Christian Wood” for months and months, and aside from a token attempt to get him going early, he rode the pine for nearly that entire time. When he’d go down to the…

Frank Jackson 19 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (3/24/2019)

This is upsetting to me. I’ve been spending the past few Frank Jackson videos building up the idea that Frank Jackson is nothing more than a midget shooting guard who has no point guard instincts to speak of. His rate-adjusted assist averages for the season, which have been hovering at or near two APG, have…

Ian Clark 17 Points Full Highlights (3/20/2019)

I was going to write a long (okay, medium-length) diatribe on how it’s TOTALLY NOT COOL that Frank Jackson is stealing all of Ian Clark’s minutes, but when I looked at Clark’s minutes splits this season, he’s getting more minutes per game in the month of March than any other month this season. So my…

Stanley Johnson 18 Points Full Highlights (3/20/2019)

You already know this, especially if you’re a Pelicans fan, but Stanley Johnson has been BAD on the offensive end in New Orleans, way below even his very low standards. He scored 6 in his debut with them, which was his high before this game. He had two other games where he made more than…

Frank Jackson 19 Points Full Highlights (3/18/2019)

I really messed this one up. Sorry guys. It’s too late now. No time machine, no warping of the fabric of space, no fantastical voyage into the past will repair the fact that Frank Jackson got a block in this game and I didn’t even show it in this video. A video which purports to…

Elfrid Payton Triple Double 19 Points/10 Rebs/11 Asts Full Highlights (3/18/2019)

“Dear Elfrid, I suppose that when you saw that you had received a letter from the esteemed highlight creator known as DownToBuck that I would fawn all over you. Perhaps I would declare you the new mascot of my channel, the unofficial representative of all role-players league-wide. Your ego would like that, wouldn’t it? Not…

Jahlil Okafor 15 Points Full Highlights (3/16/2019)

Jahlil Okafor was a fun story for a little white there. Did you realize that he had a 5-game stretch where he averaged almost 10 makes a game? He was a straight-up bucket machine, just like what he was drafted to be. A guy who was put on this earth to do one thing and…

Elfrid Payton Triple Double 16 Pts/13 Rebs/16 Asts Full Highlights (3/16/2019)

Elfrid “Dirfle” Payton is accustomed to being on losing teams, so my guess is that he’s not too bummed that the Pelicans lost this one in basically the dumbest way possible: Alvin Gentry getting a technical foul called himself (due to trying to call a non-existent timeout during an inbound) with one second left in…

Frank Jackson 16 Points Full Highlights (3/15/2019)

I really appreciate basketball-reference for all the good work they do, but they’re really confusing me by calling Frank Jackson a “point guard” on his profile page. Not even “point guard and shooting guard”. Just “point guard”. Yet, when I make highlights for this guy, in no way does it seem like he’s playing as…

Elfrid Payton Triple Double 14 Pts/12 Rebs/16 Asts Full Highlights (3/15/2019)

Elfrid Payton has now recorded THREE straight triple-doubles for the Pelicans. I’m guessing that’s not any kind of NBA record both because Russell Westbrook exists and because the commentators didn’t lose their minds with joy at the exact moment that Payton scored his tenth point, but it’s still a Pelicans record. While the first triple-double…
