Arizona Wildcats in the NBA Daily Recap: 1/30/15

A daily glimpse of Arizona Wildcat performances in the NBA

It was a pretty quiet night for the Cats in the NBA on Friday. 5 players were in action, here's how they did:

Chase Budinger: Budinger had a solid night in limited minutes on Friday in a loss to the Sixers. Chase was on the floor for 17 minutes and scored 7 points while going a perfect 3-3 from the field and 1-1 from downtown. He also brought down 3 rebounds and an assist. On another note, according to a report by Sporting News, Budinger has requested a trade from the Timberwolves. However, according to the report Budinger is unlikely to be moved because of his expensive player option for next season.

Jason Terry: In Boston against his former team, Terry played 15 minutes and despite missing his only two shot attempts, he helped lead the Rockets to a win in other ways. He had 4 assists and 2 rebounds. He also was tied with the best +/- on the team with a +7.

Derrick Williams: D-Will saw his minutes decrease on Friday as he only played 6. In those 6 minutes he went 1-3 from the field and 0-1 from three as the Kings lost 101-90 to the Cavaliers. It's the third game in a row where Williams has seen his playing time decrease.

Richard Jefferson: Due to Chandler Parsons being out with an illness, Jefferson got his second start of the season for Dallas on Friday night. The veteran played 21 minutes, scored 7 points on 3-6 shooting, reeled in 2 boards, dished out an assist, and also had a block. Dallas was down by as much as 16 points in the 3rd quarter, but Jefferson scored 5 of his 7 points and got his assist in the 3rd, which helped the Mavericks tie the game heading into the 4th quarter. The Mavericks ended up pulling away in the 4th and beat Miami 93-72.

Andre Iguodala: Iguodala played in his 800th game on Friday, but it certainly wasn't one of his best. In 21 minutes, Iggy shot 2-7 from the field, missed all 3 of his three point attempts, and shot 2-4 from the line. However, as usual, Iguodala helped out in other areas. He grabbed 3 rebounds, had 3 assists, and also had 2 steals. He was also one of only three Warriors to have a positive +/- at +3. It was not enough though, as Steve Kerr's Warriors were upset in Utah 110-100.
