    So... through the first half against Toronto, Cousins has a double-double, and four assists... He also has seven turnovers and a technical. :eek:

    11/9 Big Man update:

    Anthony Davis: 18/7/2/2/2 versus Raptors
    DeMarcus Cousins: 20/15/5/1/1[7to] versus Raptors
    Jonas Valanciunas: 7/13/2/1/0 versus Pelicans

    (BMOtN) Joel Embiid: 22/15/2/0/3 versus Kings
    Nikola Jokic: 15/11/3/1/0 versus Thunder

    Embiid gets BMOtN pretty much by default; nobody had a good game last night, but I guess he had the least poor one. Shout out to DeMarcus Cousins, though, for playing much more under control in the second half against Toronto: seven turnovers in the first half, none in the second half.

    I'm only going to put up with 1-2 games of this from Valanciunas, before I revoke his "Top Big Man" status.

    DeMarcus Cousins: 25/9/5/4/1 [6 to] versus Raptors
    Karl-Anthony Towns: 26/16/2/1/2 versus Spurs


    Solid statistical performances by big men tonight, but only two of them resulted in wins. BMOtN will be announced tomorrow morning, when I update for ORL/POR and PHI/LAL (since I don't really stay up to watch late games anymore), but the leader in the clubhouse, as of right now, is Towns.

    Should’ve stayed up for Embiid. It was spectacular.

    But that means I would have had to watch the lakers, though...

    Late game update:

    Nikola Vucevic: 11/10/4/0/0 versus Trailblazers

    (BMOtN) Joel Embiid: 46/15/7/o/7 versus lakers

    Yup... that'll do it.

    11/16 Big Man update:

    No top big men played tonight. Clearly TNT has an anti-big man bias: this is the second time in three Thursdays that there were no top big men playing on Thursday, and last week, four of the five big men that played were involved in games that weren't broadcast on TNT.

    11/17 Big Man update:

    Jonas Valanciunas: 4/5/1/0/1 versus Knicks
    Andre Drummond: 11/15/5/1/3 versus Pacers

    (BMOtN) Hassan Whiteside: 21/16/1/0/2 versus Wizards
    Dwight Howard: 11/9/0/0/0 versus Bulls
    Karl-Anthony Towns: 15/11/2/1/0 versus Mavericks

    I'll update the late game in the morning; I've got to work tomorrow.

    Late game (11/17) update:

    Anthony Davis: 17/5/2/1/0 versus Nuggets**
    DeMarcus Cousins: 14/6/4/0/0 versus Nuggets
    Nikola Jokic: 13/11/6/0/1 versus Pelicans

    ** - left in 3rd quarter (concussion)

    Sorry, Saturdays are usually a light enough work day for me to have time to get to this in the morning, but today has been an exception. BMOtN goes to Whiteside: the Heat didn't win last night, but none of the winning bigs had an impressive enough line that I feel like they deserve it.

    they won 91-88

    I stand corrected; I thought the Wizards won that game.

    11/18 Big Man update:

    (BMOtN) Dwight Howard: 16/16/1/2/1 versus Clippers
    Nikola Vucevic: 8/2/1/3/2 versus Jazz
    Joel Embiid: 21/8/3/0/1 versus Warriors
    Marc Gasol: 15/9/4/0/2 versus Rockets

    Hon. Mention - Clint Capela: 17/13/0/0/3 versus Rockets Grizzlies

    Sorry again... I was getting my life to that Warriors/Sixers game, and then Golden State went Golden State in the third quarter, and I said, "Nope! I'm done watching basketball tonight!" And Sunday is my grocery shopping day so, as you can see, I'm just now getting around to updating.

    I'm batting about .168 this weekend; they're going to send me back to Triple A, to work the kinks out.

    11/19 Big Man update:

    Jonas Valanciunas: 4/7/1/0/2 versus Wizards
    Hassan Whiteseide: 15/7/1/0/2 versus Pacers

    (BMOtN) Andre Drummond: 20/16/4/1/2 [6 to] versus Timberwolves
    Karl-Anthony Towns: 16/9/3/0/0 versus Pistons
    Nikola Jokic: 6/6/1/1/0 versus lakers (ejected 2nd quarter)

    No-brainer for Andre the Giant, turnovers and all. Meanwhile, Valanciunas is down to his final at bat; the Dude does not abide.

    11/20 Big Man update:

    Karl-Anthony Towns: 18/12/2/0/1 versus Hornets

    (BMOtN) Dwight Howard: 25/20/0/0/4 versus Timberwolves
    Andre Drummond: 8/8/3/1/0 [6 to] versus Cavaliers
    Joel Embiid: 15/11/3/0/2 versus Jazz
    Nikola Vucevic: 25/13/2/1/1 versus Pacers
    Anthony Davis: 36/15/3/0/2 [7 to] versus Thunder
    DeMarcus Cousins: 18/9/4/3/1 versus Thunder (ejected 3rd quarter)
    Marc Gasol: 19/12/7/1/2 versus Trailblazers

    I'm calling it for D12: it was between Howard and Davis for me, and I went with Howard for BMOtN because he actually went head-to-head against another top big. I can't even imagine what Jokic would have to do in the second half of the late game, to get me to change my mind.

    That Ejection was a joke. Total flop. I wish the league would fine guys for flopping like they are supposed to. I also wish that if the flop led to an ejection then the player flopping would be suspended for a game.

    DeMarcus Cousins: 24/15/3/1/2 [6 to] versus Spurs

    That's the last straw for Valanciunas; he's officially off the update.

    DMC with 3 straight games of 6 TO according to your last 3 posts. Gotta tighten that up, big man.
