Who’s ready for some box scores?

I knew you would say yes. Let’s get to it…

Demarcus Cousins had an aboslute MONSTER of a game tonight, scoring 41 points, but the Kings still couldn’t overcome the Suns, losing 109-100. Cousins had a great shooting night, hitting 16-25 field goals, including this beautiful floater (Warning: NBA.com link). In addition to all the scoring, Cousins pulled down 12 rebounds, snatched 2 steals and blocked 1 shot. Over his last 10 games, Cousins is averaging 22.6ppg, 10.7rpg, 2.8apg and 1.3bpg.

Chuck Hayes didn’t have nearly as good a night scoring the ball in the King’s loss to the Suns, but in typical ChuckWagon fashion, he still found ways to contribute. He managed just 2 points on 1-7 shooting but he also crashed the offensive glass (he had 3 offensive rebounds, 7 total) and played solid defense (he had 2 steals). Hayes doesn’t always score a lot of points, but just like Anthony Davis, he doesn’t have to.

Jamaal Magloire played 18 seconds tonight for the Toronto Raptors in their 92-87 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats. Magloire hasn’t been getting very many minutes lately, and to be quite frank, it’s pissing me off. On top of helping UK win an NCAA championship in 1998, he’s also Canadian. For the love of ice hockey Toronto, give the man some minutes!

Josh Harrellson played only 9 minutes tonight for the Knicks, and when you don’t play Josh Harrellson 20+ minutes a game and let him shoot three-pointers, you lose to the Pacers 112-104. Despite the limited action, Josh was able to score 4 points, on 2-3 shooting, while also adding 1 rebound and 1 block. In case any of you haven’t seen Jorts in a while, you may be interested to know that he is now growing a #jortstache. Check it out.

 

UPDATE: Woops! Here is the picture of the Jortstache.

UPDATE 2: The quality of that picture sucks.  Sorry.

Jodie Meeks has been moved back to the bench in favor of Evan Turner again, and just as you might expect, it caused the Sixers to lose to the Miami Heat 99-93 tonight. Jodie did play 16 minutes, but only managed to score 2 points, on 1-4 shooting, during that time. He also added 1 foul. I’ve always loved Sixers head coach Doug Collins for believing in Jodie, but he’s pushing my boundaries. Hopefully whatever vodoo spell Turner put on him will wear off soon and Jodie can get his job back. The Sixers season depends on it.

Tayshaun Prince had a solid night in helping lead the Pistons to a 102-95 victory over the Orlando Magic. Prince finished the game with 16 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal. He also added a sweet reverse dunk off a no-look pass from Rodney Stuckey. If you want to watch that play now, here is a link, but I warn you, it’s from NBA.com which makes you wait through 30 second commercials to watch 30 second clips (I HATE THAT).

Brandon Knight didn’t play to bad himself in the Pistons victory over the Magic. Knight finished the game with 11 points on 5-12 shooting, and also added 4 assists, 1 rebound and 2 turnovers. Not bad sir.

DeAndre Liggins did not play in the Magic’s game against the Pistons tonight. If head coach Steve Van Gundy ever replies to my hate mail, I could potentially tell you why. For now, just assume he’s an idiot.

Daniel Orton actually played 8 minutes tonight in the Magic’s game, the most minutes he has ever played during his career. Recently there had been a lot of talk in Orlando about the possibility of either Orton or Justin Harper getting more minutes, and it appears Orton has won that battle, as Harper did not play in the game. If this is the case, this could be good news for Orton, as he might finally have a chance to showcase his talents. He played pretty good tonight, as he finished the game with 2 points and 2 rebounds (0-0 FG, 2-2 FT). Maybe Van Gundy isn’t as stupid as he looks. Naaaahh.
