First of all, I hope everyone in the BBN had a great Halloween.
In the NBA on Saturday night Brandon Knight and Eric Bledsoe were spectacular in leading the Suns to a 101-90 win over the Trail Blazers combining for 60 points and providing the "treat" in trick or treat. Bledsoe led the charge with 33 points, six assists, four steals, three rebounds, and two blocks. Knight would chip in with 27 points, five rebounds, five assists, and two steals. Devin Booker nor Archie Goodwin would see time in the game.
Anthony Davis and John Wall both had big games Halloween night, unfortunately, where there are "treats", "tricks" will follow. Davis put up 26 points, 15 rebounds, four assists, and two blocks; however, Steph Curry would once again go off against the Pelicans totaling 53 points this time leading the Warriors to a 134-120 win.
Wall tallied 25 points and four assists against the Knicks, however, Carmelo Anthony would put up 37 points in the Knicks 117-110 win.
There was also a touch of scariness in the NBA on Halloween night for former Cat, DeMarcus Cousins, who would leave after playing just 15 minutes in the Kings' 114-109 loss to the Clippers with a sore right Achilles. That is all that is known about the situation at this time (late Saturday night). Cousins would tally 13 points and nine rebounds in the limited action. The other two former Cats on the Kings,
Rajon Rondo and Wille Cauley-Stein, would both have solid nights. Rondo finished with 21 points, eight assists, five rebounds, and two steals; while Willie would add eight points, nine rebounds, three steals, and a block.
Trey Lyles played just five minutes in the Jazz' 97-76 win over the Pacers, finishing with two points and four rebounds. Unfortunately, I have nothing to compare Lyles' night to that fits in with Halloween. Suggestions are welcomed.
Go Big Blue!
