Jonas Valanciunas 22 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (8/15/2020)

The Grizzlies’ season is over. As we speak they are packing up their stuff and being forcibly ejected out of the bubble. With no international competition to look forward to this summer, Jonas Valanciunas will probably just work out by himself until the league starts back up (whenever that is). Maybe he’ll come back with…

Brandon Clarke 20 Points Full Highlights (8/15/2020)

Unlike Ja Morant, who witnessed his DTB eligibility expire as soon as the buzzer sounded in this game, fellow rookie Brandon Clarke should be good for another couple of seasons, if not his entire career. While he did have an outstanding rookie season for a player drafted later in the first round, he doesn’t really…

Ja Morant Career High 35 Points/8 Assists Full Highlights (8/15/2020)

This career-high performance from Ja Morant cements him as the single player in the NBA who is even in the conversation to win ROTY of the Year. And that’s not even a hot take. Actually, that take I just made is the coldest possible take you can make about the ROTY of the Year race….

Ja Morant Triple Double 12 Pts/13 Rebs/10 Asts Full Highlights (8/13/2020)

Ja Morant and Jonas Valanciunas (a combo affectionately known to me Jorant Jalanciunas) each recorded a triple-double in this game. That is an exceedingly rare circumstance; I can’t find an authoritative source, but I did find a non-authoritative source (a Reddit thread) which alleged that there were ten such occurrences in NBA history, the most…

Dillon Brooks 31 Points Full Highlights (8/13/2020)

Am I understanding this situation right? Dillon Brooks was pretty much solely responsible for the Grizzlies’ slipping playoff chances up until this game. Every loss the ‘Zlies had in The Bubb is pretty much directly attributable to him and him alone. If any other players on the ‘Zlies appeared to play poorly, it was because…

Jonas Valanciunas Triple Double 26 Pts/19 Rebs/12 Asts Full Highlights (8/13/2020)

Four days ago, Jonas Valanciunas recorded the stunning statline of 0/10/1 in 25 minutes, going 0-of-2 from both the field and the line. That was also the ‘Zlies only win in The Bubb up until that point, a fact which I am writing off as purely coincidental. My question is, how does a guy who…

Ja Morant 26 Points/13 Assists Full Highlights (8/11/2020)

Sources from inside The Bubb are informing me that, immediately after this game concluded, Ja Morant pretended to go in for a fist bump with his teammate Dillon Brooks, but “missed” and socked him right in the face five times until he was unconscious. While this attack took place, he yelled, “Stop chucking bad shots…

Dillon Brooks 25 Points Full Highlights (8/9/2020)

Dillon Brooks scored 25 points on 26 shots in this game. At one point he was 0-for-6 from the field, but did that stop him from chucking the ball until it was deflated and unsuitable for in-game use? NO! He chucked it twenty more times! And eventually he got to the point where a casual…

Grayson Allen 20 Points Full Highlights (8/9/2020)

The Grayson Allen – J.J. Redick comparisons are so easy to make that I feel guilty about making them. Journalism feels like it should require more effort than this. My viewers deserve hard-hitting, well-researched video descriptions but I’m sitting here grabbing all the low-hanging fruit that I can. Allen and Redick are both 6’4″-ish. They…

Dillon Brooks 22 Points Full Highlights (8/7/2020)

This is not really a notable highlight video. Dillon Brooks goes out there and hits some swaggy shots (ten of them to be exact) and then the video ends. That’s it. Just another middling DownToBuck highlight video to throw into the pile of unwatched and forgotten videos. But if you listen deeper, there is something…
