BBNBA: Julius Randle one assist shy of triple-double in Knicks' win

On3 imageby:Adam Stratton12/02/23


It was a light slate for former Kentucky players in the NBA on Friday. Only six guys had teams playing, but unfortunately, three of them sat out due to some kind of ailment. Devin Booker and Jamal Murray both sat out with ankle injuries in the ESPN primetime game featuring the Suns and the Nuggets, and Tyrese Maxey came down with an illness that kept him sidelined. Thankfully, Julius Randle took up the mantle of BBNBA stud for the evening.

Randle finished one assist shy of a triple-double in the New York Knicks’ 119-106 win over the Toronto Raptors. His 20 points were two shy of the team lead behind Jalen Brunson, but his 10 rebounds and nine assists led the Knicks in each category.

Immanuel Quickley came off the bench for New York and contributed his normal batch of scoring, this time with 10 points in 19 minutes of action.

Keldon Johnson, for the Spurs, also notched double digits, though San Antonio lost to the New Orleans Pelicans 106-121. This marks the Spurs’ 14th consecutive loss. Ouch.

It should be no surprise that all three Wildcats reach double figures. Kentucky has 10 former players in the league who average at least 15 points per game in the NBA. The next closest school is Duke with four.
