Booker's Suns lost to Utah, but he set a franchise record for most consecutive free throws made.  The 89 percent free throw shooter has made 60 straight from the charity stripe.  He was 4-for-4 from the line, but it didn't translate very well.  He made just 7-of-24 shots and finished with 17 points in the loss. While New Orleans was making moves in the front office, Anthony Davis was positing stupid stats in Oklahoma City.  Davis had 43 points and 10 rebounds in the 114-100 win.  Before the night ended he became the Pelicans all-time leading scorer with more than 8,691 points.  "All with one eyebrow!" John Calipari congratulated him on Twitter. Darius Miller made three three-pointers to finish with 11 points.  Rajon Rondo only scored 7 points, but he grabbed 7 rebounds and dished out 13 assists. In Brooklyn, Julius Randle was charged with first degree murder for ending Jahlil Okafor's life. Randle finished the night with a 19-point, 12-rebound double-double.  Randle did Okafor dirty, but it's nothing compared to what Bam Adebayo did to Joel Embiid, who is now searching for a new process to trust. Adebayo posted a stat line no person under 21 has ever posted: 15 points, 13 rebounds, 6 assists and 0 turnovers. Eric Bledsoe only scored 7 points in Milwaukee, but his Bucks still beat the Knicks 92-90.  For the third consecutive game Enes Kanter had more than 17 points and 17 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings hosted Golden State.  Of course, they lost.  De'Aaron Fox had 16 points and 6 assists and Willie Cauley-Stein had 13 points and 6 rebounds. In the G-League Aaron Harrison was busy getting buckets.  He scored a cool 26 points to lead all scorers in Reno.  . [mobile_ad]
