BBNBA Roundup: Boogie goes for 20, still can't believe Kevin Durant plays for the Warriors

BBNBA Roundup: Boogie goes for 20, still can't believe Kevin Durant plays for the Warriors

Six of the 26 Cats in the league were in action last night as the NBA Preseason rolls on. As we'll do every day from now until the end of the season, let's check on their progress, shall we?  

James Young, Boston Celtics: 5 points, 6 rebounds, 1 block, 17 minutes

No highlights of James, but he did some good things last night, blocking a shot, getting an offensive rebound, and making an impact on defense. Young's on thin ice in Boston, so he has to give the Celtics a reason to keep him on the roster. Last night was a good start.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Charlotte Hornets: 7 points, 4 rebounds, 24 minutes

MKG continues to ease back into things after missing most of last season due to injury and I was genuinely happy to see him score off this steal and dish from Marvin Williams.

Andrew Harrison, Memphis Grizzlies: 2 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 17 minutes

No footage of Andrew in the game, but here he is knocking a three down in warm-ups:

DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento Kings: 20 points, 6 rebounds, 4 steals, 21 minutes

Boogie did Boogie things last night, but couldn't get the Kings past the Warriors. As he was leaving the arena, Boogie paused to watch Kevin Durant do an interview in his Warriors uniform, and like many of us, still can't believe it:

Skal Labissiere, Sacramento Kings: 0 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 11 minutes

No points for Skal in the game, but that turnaround jumper sure looked good in warmups:

Willie Cauley-Stein, Sacramento Kings: 2 points, 2 rebounds, 2 steals, 20 minutes

Willie played okay, but I'm still not over his hair from earlier in the week: [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="1200"]@Scott_Charlton @Scott_Charlton[/caption] Alex Poythress, Aaron Harrison, John Wall (knee), and Nerlens Noel (groin) did not play. Tonight's games feature the Phoenix Wildcats and Jamal Murray vs. Julius Randle:
  • 10:00 PM: Suns (Eric Bledsoe, Brandon Knight, Archie Goodwin, Devin Booker, Tyler Ulis) at the Trail Blazers
  • 10:30 PM: Nuggets (Jamal Murray) at the Lakers (Julius Randle)

KSR Today: Bye Week Saturday

Week 8 of the college football season has arrived, and Kentucky has the day off. That's just fine because basketball has picked up the slack. Last night at Rupp Arena, Kentucky participated in the annual Blue-White game as the last tune-up before...

Big Blue Nation's growing admiration for Oscar Tshiebwe wasn't the only love in the building Friday night. Moments before the Blue-White scrimmage tipped off, there was a proposal at mid-court when Sydney, the national anthem singer, was surprised...
