The Tuesday Morning Furball
John Wall went off last night for 31 points and helped lead the Wizards to their 5th win of the season. In the process, he earned himself the first ever Tuesday Morning Furball photo. Let’s all congratulate Mr.Wall on his big performance! Now onto the news..
– I know all of you are dying to know how Brandon Knight will look in his protective face mask (we’ll find out Wednesday) but I’ll do you one better. Here is the actual video of Brandon Knight’s mask being made, enjoy.
– This bit of news popped out of the Twitterverse late last night when Matt Jones, founder of http://www.kentuckysportsradio.com (one of the best UK fan sites around, go check it out), tweeted this little nugget…
“Former NBA players Zydrunas Ilgauskus, Allan Houston and Danny Ferry coming to UK game tomorrow as 3 of 21 NBA scouts as well as 12 NBA GMs”
There are a couple of games we didn’t get to in the night post. NBACats Patterson and Mohammed each had games that didn’t finish until late last night, so here are some post-game recaps to go along with that bagel you might have eaten for breakfast…
– The Houston Rockets beat the Nuggets 99-90. Patterson logged 27 minutes of action and finished with 4 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, and 1 steal in the victory. A great post-game review with pictures can be found here.
– Nazr Mohammed and the rest of the Oklahoma City Thunder won a thrilling overtime game against the Blazers 111-107. Mohammed finished with 2 points and 7 rebounds in 11 minutes of action. Without Mohammeds 2 points the Thunder would have lost by 2 in regulation. Here is the post-game review link, I know you want to click it.
That’s it for now. We have a full day of NBACats coverage planned, so don’t forget to check out the NBACats Live Gamecast Links for tonights games that we will post later this afternoon, follow us on Twitter @NBACats, and keep looking for those player pages, they are coming soon. Go Cats!!
