The old hustlas in the hood would always say, “Don’t hate the playa! Hate the game!” The Michigan State student section poked the bear Tuesday night when they started chantin’ all kinds of foolishness and booing Caleb Swanigan. His No.20 Purdue Boilermakers rolled into East Lansing and beat their Michigan State Spartans 84-73. Swanigan put that thang on ‘um finishin’ with his NCAA leadin’ 17th double-double on a boy.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Never try to clown a boy when your team is horrible! Now that’s rare for a Tom Izzo coached team to be but this year’s version of it is suspect havin’ a record of 12-9 and bein’ 4-4 in the Big Ten. So you can’t afford to try to clown a boy when you’ve got nobody to stop him or at least slow him down. That dun put 25 and 17 on ‘um and went to the crib.
I keep tellin’ you boyz that Purdue is about to be a problem in these streets because they’ve got the right balance of inside and outside game to stop traffic flowin’ in the opposite direction. And they’ll be the one’s collection’ tolls at the end of the block on the way to school every mornin’. Those of us that grew up in the hood know about boyz collectin’ tolls on the way to school. However, only the duns that couldn’t fight or hold their own had to give up their lunch money playa.
Purdue (17-4, 6-2 Big Ten) has the muscle and grit to hold their own on any floor in the Big Ten and they’re doin’ exactly what’s expected of them every night. They’ve won three straight and now they’ve got their best eight game record (6-2) in conference play since the 2010-11 season.
They shot the street lights out of the joint shootin’ 49 percent from the field and a ridiculous 52 percent from behind the arc. The Boilermalers moved the ball like the Golden State Warriors on a boy with 24 assists as a team, which is NUTS!!!
The freshman, Carsen Edwards, dropped off 12 points on his way to Big Momma’s house as the giant, Isaac Haas, picked up 11. Vince Edwards, Dakota Mathias and PJ Thompson all jumped out of the ride with 10 apiece. Mathias brought a little something extra to the party as he pulled 7 dimes out of his pocket.
Purdue has all of that fire power and muscle and you’ve got the nerve to poke the dun drivin’ the whip? You gotta be smarter than that playa. Stop me when I start lyin’!
