Cookin': LeBron James has yet to be inefficient in this season. With his 32 points (12 of 18), 7 rebounds and 4 assists yesterday, James becomes the first Heat player to score 30 points in 5 consecutive games. He shot 71 percent from the field in those 5 games. Dwyane Wade chipped in 30 points on 12 of 18 shooting, and 5 assists in the win against the struggling Los Angeles Lakers. LA kept it close through the first 3 quarters, but collapsed in the 4th. Kobe Bryant had 28 points (11 of 19), 6 rebounds and 9 assists.

Aerial Strike: Kobe turns the ball over and fuels an amazing LeBron alley oop finish.

To which Kobe say.

Point God'd: Despite Carmelo Anthony going off for 42 points on 14 of 26 shooting and 8 rebounds, the lack of help from the rest of the Knicks could not overcome the team effort from the Los Angeles Clippers. The "Tribe Called Bench" outscored New York's second unit 48 to 15. Jamal Crawford had his way with 27 points (12 of 22). Chris Paul added 25 points (10 of 17), 6 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals in the victory.

Launch Pad: Blake Griffin can dunk from anywhere.

Burnt Out: The Phoenix Suns drops a third straight game in the loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Nobody on the Suns scored into the double figures, except for Markieff Morris, who scored a team-high 12 points on 13 attempts. Russell Westbrook led the way for the Thunder. The fashionista had 24 points (8 of 15), 6 assists and 4 steals.

Bear-fection: In his fifth game with the Memphis Grizzlies, Tayshaun Prince posted a perfect 8 of 8 shooting for 17 points in the victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Wolves have lost 8 straight games on the road and dropped 10 of their last 11 games. It has been a rough season for the pack, the number of injuries to their key players have completely taken them out of the playoff chase.

Ov3rtime: This was the game of the night. After three overtimes at the TD Garden, the Boston Celtics walks away with their 7th straight win. Paul Pierce exploded for a triple double, he got 27 points (7 of 20), 14 rebounds and 14 assists against the high octane Denver Nuggets. Down 3 with only 10 seconds left to play in the second overtime, the Truth knocks down a three to extend the game.

Jason Terry came off the bench for 26 points. Kevin Garnett scored an additional 20 points to go with his 18 rebounds, 6 assists and 3 blocks. As for the Nuggets, Ty Lawson went for a game-high 29 points (13 of 22), 6 rebounds and 9 assists. Their 9 game winning streak has now ended.

French Special: The Brooklyn Nets gets served at home by the San Antonio Spurs. Tony Parker led the charge with a game-high 29 points on 12 of 21 shooting, and 11 assists. The Spurs have done pretty well without Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili.

Short of Beards: The Houston Rockets have only one James Harden and even though he had 30 points on 10 of 20 shooting, 6 rebounds and 4 assists, it was not enough to take down the Sacramento Kings. The trio of Isiah Thomas, John Salmons, and DeMarcus Cousins combined for 66 points in their first consecutive win in the month of February.


Near Escape: Ed Davis may have dunked on Nikola Pekovic, but revenge is in store and you don't want to know what Pek has in mind. Hopefully, it is not too cruel and won't leave too much of a mess.

Vision: Gustavo keeps his Eye-on cutters.

Explosion: Dwyane Wade catches the Lakers snoozing, or what they call defense.
