206 Tracker: Nick Collison and Robert Sacre play professional basketball

The two big men were the only PNW guys to log minutes on Tuesday night.

Basketball players from the Pacific-Northwest did not have the NBA going up, on a Tuesday.

Ok, that was really bad. Apologies for channeling my inner ILoveMakonnen, but that song is really catchy.


Just three players from our 206 tracker suited up on Tuesday night and the results... weren't great.

Robert Sacre (Lakers) 4 2-4 0-0 0-0 1 0 1 0 1 0 0 12
Reggie Evans (Kings) - - - - - - - - - - - DNP
Nick Collison (Thunder) 8 3-6 2-5 0-0 3 2 1 0 1 1 2 21

Former Sonic Reggie Evans suited up but didn't see the floor for the Kings in their loss to the New Orleans Pelicans, but apparently he did some coaching.

Fellow former Sonic Nick Collison on the other hand did see the floor, but his Oklahoma City Thunder squad lost to the Utah Jazz. Collison hit a pair of three-pointers and scored eight points to go along with an assist, a block and three rebounds in 21 minutes of play. At 3-9 without Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant, I'm beginning to wonder just how far this OKC team can go this season. The Western Conference is tough, and with rising teams like the Kings, Pelicans and Suns, is it possible that the Thunder miss the post season? Maybe.

Here's Collison's highlight of the night, a block against Alex Burks. (H/T to @JDonSports for the GIF)

But hey! The Lakers won on Tuesday night, and former Gonzaga center Robert Sacre chipped in with four points, a steal and a rebound in Team Kobe's 114-109 win over the Atlanta Hawks.

There are 11 NBA games on tap for tomorrow night and frequent 206 Tracker Stars like Jeff Green and Jamal Crawford are back in action.
