A night after getting his 5000th, assist, Chris Paul decides to score instead. 24 points on 7 of 13 shooting, 5 rebounds, 5 steals and who am I kidding, this is the point god. He had 13 assists and the W over the Sacramento Kings.
Honorable Mention: To David Lee's triple double. His 23 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assist makes him the new NBA leader in 20+ points/10+ rebounds game. He is one ahead of LeBron James (10).
Boards: Larry Sanders is having an incredible breakout season, he grabbed 20 rebounds to go with his 17 points (8 of 10), 3 assists, 2 steals and a block against the Boston Celtics.
Rookie Watch: Andre Drummond gets his first ever mention, 11 points (5 of 7), 14 rebounds, 2 assists and 5 blocks in victory over the powerless Wizards. Not only did Detroit beat Washington , they did it by a total of 32 points. #FreeJohnWall and Wizard fans.
Time Machine User: Paul Pierce and his old man game went for 35 points (13 of 23), 12 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals. Despite draining the three to bring the game to overtime, his team would eventually fall to the Milwaukee Bucks.
Excitement: Joakim Noah is really happy about his 10th 10+ points, 10+ rebounds, 5+ assists game.
Thrown: 4 players and a coach was ejected from the Chicago Bulls vs. New York Knicks game. Carmelo Anthony, J.R. Smith, Joakim Noah, Tyson Chandler and Mike Woodson all headed out the exits before the game was finished. Fun fact: Melo leads the league in technical fouls (8). Rasheed Wallace has been nothing but a good influence.
This game was horribly officiated. Even Spike Lee was speechless.
Big Bear: Zach Randolph currently leads the NBA with 20 double doubles in the season. He will be looking for his 5th straight against the Houston Rockets tonight.
Passing White Chocolate: Mike Conley Jr. is now the Grizzlies' franchise all time record holder in assists, surpassing Jason Williams. Sad face.
New Record: The Los Angeles Clippers is on a 12 game winning streak, the longest in franchise history.
Twinsies: The short dude lobs the ball to the taller dude that has the same hair as him. Cute.
Gerald Green Everything: If the man can pull off a dunk like this, he can stare as long as he wants.
Mini-LeBron: Does actual LeBron things in a smaller size. Give him more minutes, Vinny! #FreeBledsoe
Take-Off: Blake Griffin is always trailing and will get his dunk. John Salmons must have not seen him play before.
Athletic Reptiles: Let me repeat myself again, Raptor shooting guards are very good at dunking, and this time it involved a windmill.
