Isaiah Canaan Career High 31 Points/8 Threes Full Highlights (3/4/2015)

Isaiah Canaan, in addition to his career high 31 points with 8 treys, had 6 assists tonight. Amazing! An impressive scoring performance amplified by a player’s willingness to pass! So where are they? You watch this video, they aren’t there. What’s the deal, DownToBuck? I’ll tell you the deal, straight-up and unfiltered: a scoring performance…

Nerlens Noel 17 Points/5 Dunks Full Highlights (3/2/2015)

Nerlens “Knurly” Noel has been as advertised in his rookie season. He dunks. He blocks. He jumps around like he’s made out of pogo sticks. This is good. It reinforces confidence in the ability of NBA teams to scout draft prospects. If he came in and performed sick crossovers leading to three pointers while playing…

Ish Smith Career High 19 Points/Career High 9 Assists Full Highlights (3/2/2015)

Ah yes, the fabled “career-high in career-highs”. The most storied of all basketball accomplishments. A performance so far out of the norm, that all one can do is gaze with childlike awe at the expertly compiled highlight package. No surprise that Ish “Dish” Smith achieved this accolade while a member of the 76ers, a team…

Hollis Thompson 22 Points/6 Threes Full Highlights (2/23/2015)

“Alcohollis” Thompson really caught the attention of the Heat commentators this game. They characterized him as a “big who can shoot”, when he’s really just a “wing who can shoot” (a much more common find in the NBA). This again proves that the commentators are more for entertainment than informational purposes, but we already knew…

JaKarr Sampson 16 Points Full Highlights (2/22/2015)

JaKarr Sampson looks quite a bit like LeBron James, especially in the construction of his facial bones. I have expounded at length on this very topic in a previous description. What I have learned since then, however, is that JaKarr and LeBron are actually from the same city, that they went to the same high…

Tim Frazier 13 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (2/20/2015)

Having impaled the body of the lead NBA copyright enforcer, I have no time for celebration. I must find where Dawk Ins is being detained. I dial his number, not bothering to find another phone. The NBA already knows about me. Just as I had hoped, the call is answered, and a gruff voice gloats,…

Nerlens Noel 12 Points/9 Blocks Full Highlights (2/20/2015)

The circular room is dimly light by candles adorning the walls. Enthroned on the raised dais in the center of the hall is a dark man adorned in brilliant red robes. Around him, kneeling in reverence, are various black-cloaked figures, gazing at their soon-to-be leader. From the main entrance comes a man. He, too, is…

Hollis Thompson 18 Points Full Highlights (2/7/2015)

Hollis “Alcohollis” Thompson was in a prolonged slumpy-wumpy for the whole first half of the season. After a promising rookie campaign where he alone managed to emerge from the stinking tar pits of the 76ers organization, his shooting regressed and his role was diminished in favor of other players. DownToBuck decrees: Thompson’s long nightmare of…

Robert Covington 22 Points Full Highlights (2/7/2015)

Robert Covington: the only good offensive player on the 76ers? You might be able to argue Michael Carter-Williams. Other than him, there is no one else who can actually put the orange into the actual bucket. Philadelphia’s roster constructions looks worse for not having Embiid and Saric this year, but it is still horrible. Covington…
