From Tuesday through Friday, each time a former Wildcat hits the court, we will recap how they did and include a few highlights (if available). On Tuesdays, we’ll also recap what happened over the weekend, so you don’t miss the action. This will also serve as a discussion board. We will try to keep it updated as soon as the games are over, so check back often!
It’s the late night NBA Wildcat Watch, since there are only two alums in action—Josh Hart (Los Angeles Lakers) and Mikal Bridges (Phoenix Suns)—and they’re both playing on the west coast.
Bridges was in the starting five in the Suns’ 120-106 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. He finished the game with eight points (3-of-5 shooting), five rebounds, two assists, and a steal.
Up Next: @ Denver on Friday, Jan. 25, at 9 p.m. ET
Hart the Lakers fell, 120-105, to the Minnesota Timberwolves. He came off the bench and added 21 minutes of action, finishing with five points, two rebounds, and three assists.
Up Next: vs. Phoenix on Sunday, Jan. 27, at 9:30 p.m. ET
