Nikola Mirotic 25 Points Full Highlights (11/26/2018)

I’m starting to get the feeling that something is wrong with the Pelicans. They’re fresh off a season that ended with them getting almost swept in the playoffs, but not before they themselves swept a team out of the playoffs. A playoff series win and a superstar (Anthony Davis you dummies, who did you think…

Nikola Mirotic 24 Points Full Highlights (11/24/2018)

The NBA seemed a lot more fun when Nikola Mirotic was one of its leading scorers. He’s still sorta up there, hovering around 35th in the league in points per game, but that’s wimpy compared to… was he first? After those first two games where he dropped 30 and 36? Man, I was having so…

Nikola Mirotic 26 Points Full Highlights (10/31/2018)

Nikola Mirotic is edging towards being too good for my channel at this point. I’ll give it a few more weeks, but if he’s still averaging 23, he’s outta here. I’ve already excised Tim Hardaway Jr., more because his game pisses me off than anything, but also because he’s scoring 25 a game. Mirotic’s game…

Nikola Mirotic 25 Points Full Highlights (10/27/2018)

Nikola Mirotic’s blazing start is officially over. Games of 30 and 36 were followed by games of 18 and 10. Still a decent average, but not as decent as his average after two. It was fun while it lasted. We will never forget the night he helped the Pelicans almost drop a 150-burger in regulation….

Nikola Mirotic Career High 36 Points Full Highlights (10/19/2018)

It is official: DeMarcus Cousins makes every team he touches way worse because he utterly fails to play anything resembling winning basketball. This fact was official before, because anyone with eyes can see that that was the case, but it’s even officialer now. Now that his replacement Nikola Mirotic has contributed 36 efficient points to…

Nikola Mirotic 30 Points/6 Threes Full Highlights (10/17/2018)

A whole offseason of speculation about whether the Pelicans would be any good without Rajon Rondo (seriously when did the narrative change on that dude because I missed it) looks a whole lot stupider with this decisive opening-night victory over the Rockets. Yes, I know it’s only 1 game. But my eyes tell me a…

Nikola Mirotic 30 Points Full Highlights (4/19/2018)

Nikola Mirotic was walking through towards the home locker room at the Smoothie King Center when he thought he heard a voice whisper his name urgently. “Pssst! Niko! Niko, over here!” Stopping in his tracks and looking around, he couldn’t see anybody who would have said his name. He was about to start walking again…

Nikola Mirotic 24 Points Full Highlights (4/9/2018)

Nikola Mirotic has played very well since chopping off the furry brown mass that was engulfing his chin. This 24-point game is actually his lowest point total since adopting the “Paul Zipser” look. But I have a feeling that he’s got another surprise in store for us for the playoffs. No, I’m not talking about…

Nikola Mirotic 28 Points Full Highlights (4/7/2018)

Clean-shaven Nikola Mirotic is for real. He is all business now, no messing around. He wants no distractions heading into the playoffs, and “itchy cumbersome crumb-receptacle tangled mass pube beard” definitely qualifies as a big distraction. Now that he’s shaved, can he maybe go to Miami and talk to Kelly Olynyk and Tyler Johnson? Those…

Nikola Mirotic 31 Points Full Highlights (4/6/2018)

Someone needs to explain to Nikola Mirotic the concept of a “playoff beard”, because whatever idea he has about it, however he thinks it works, it’s wrong. Can’t argue with the results, though. Two games without the beard equals two games of 25 and 31 points equals two Pelicans victories. If he thinks “playoff beard”…
