Ricky Rubio 28 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (11/19/2018)

I hate to do it, but it’s time to call out Ricky Rubio. I’ve been talking about it for years, but now I’m saying it right to his face: that jumper is WAY too flat to ever be consistently effective in the NBA. Sure, there will be nights (like tonight) when he line-drives in a…

Joe Ingles 19 Points/1 Injury Full Highlights (11/12/2018)

Was anyone else getting some serious Jesus of Nazareth vibes from this performance by Joe Ingles? I don’t know about you, but while watching the game after his return, it really felt like a Galilean Israelite from around 30 A.D. was walking around on the court, getting buckets. Well, bucket. He only hit the one…

Jae Crowder 20 Points Full Highlights (11/9/2018)

This game was nationally televised because ESPN wanted desparately for Gordon Hayward to enact a REVENGE GAME against his former team. Or at least do some damage. That didn’t really happen, but it sort of happened in reverse, because Jae Crowder totally had a REVENGE GAME against his former team, the Celtics. The best years…

Joe Ingles Career High 27 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (11/9/2018)

Hours after the game had ended, Joe Ingles carefully pushed open the door to the visitor’s locker room. The TV cameras and reporters were long gone; nobody would know about his exploits. Inside the locker room, it appeared that all the Celtics players had left as well, and Joe was disappointed; the player he had…

Alec Burks 18 Points Full Highlights (11/7/2018)

It must be that time of the year were Alec Burks plays good for a couple games leading everyone (well, all the people paying attention to Burks, so about a dozen) to think that he’s going to be good consistently now, and then he goes back to normal after five games or so. It really…

Alec Burks 22 Points Full Highlights (11/5/2018)

Alec Burks has been with the Jazz his entire career, now going into his 8th season. I thought for sure he’d be the longest-tenured Jazzman, but I totally forgot about Derrick Favors who has been around for a quarter-season longer. Think about all the sweet players the Jazz have had in the last decade, and…

Jae Crowder 21 Points/3 Blocks Full Highlights (11/3/2018)

Oh boy, more Jae Crowder highlights that no one will watch. The deal with him throughout most of his career (all of it excluding maybe his Dallas days) is that he’s too much of a hard-nosed player for anyone not to hate him. Okay, “hate” is strong, but there are hardly any true fans of…

Shelvin Mack 19 Points Full Highlights (11/2/2018)

I just spent the last fifteen minutes frantically searching the Googs for phrases like “Do I have Alzheimer’s” and “early onset dementia” and “Alzheimer’s symptoms”. Now, thanks to all that Googling, I’m fairly convinced that I have the ‘Zheimers, and while I won’t let this be the end of DownToBuck, I’m sort of dreading the…

Ricky Rubio 22 Points/11 Assists Full Highlights (11/2/2018)

The thing with Ricky Rubio is that his flat-ass jumpers never feel sustainable. They go in often enough, I guess, but do you ever see him put one up and think “oh yeah that’s definitely going in”? No. So when he has a good stretch of gametime where he’s line-driving them into the hole, you…

Jae Crowder 18 Points/5 Threes Full Highlights (10/31/2018)

Jae Crowder is a theoretical 6MOTY of the Year candidate given that he never starts games but still gets around thirty minutes of on-court action. The only problem is, thirteen points per game isn’t really going to do it when the voters are only looking for the brainless chucker who chucked the most brainless shots….
