Stats Rundown

There were 13 games last night, but only a few of them were worth watching.

Burnt Beard: Despite James James Harden going off for 36 points on 10 of 16 shooting, 12 rebounds and 7 assists, his teammates would fail to produce enough to defeat the Miami Heat. LeBron James led his team with 32 points (11 of 18), 6 rebounds and 5 assists. Dwyane Wade added 31 points (9 of 18), 5 rebounds, 8 assists, 4 steals and a touch down from his own free throw line.

Glove: Mini LeBron, Eric Bledsoe had great game again in the place of Chris Paul. The back up point guard got 27 points (9 of 21), 6 rebounds, 3 assists, 6 steals and 3 blocks in the victory over the Orlando Magic. The Clippers snapped their 3 game losing streak.

Dishin': Jeff Teague has taken his game to a whole new level this season. He had 22 points on 7 of 10 shooting, 2 rebounds and 13 assists, one of which fed the hungry Ivan Johnson on the break against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Time Machine User: The Boston Celtics are still getting it done without Rondo and Sullinger. In last night's win against the Toronto Raptors, the men in green gets their 5th straight win. Kevin Garnett scored 11 of his 27 (11 of 18) in the 4th quarter to help outscore the Raptor 30 to 16 in final 12 minutes. The grizzled veteran also grabbed 10 boards for a double-double.

One Gear: Since John Wall's return, the Washington Wizards have completely transformed into another team. With the victory over the New York Knicks yesterday, they have now won 7 of their last 8 home games. Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 31 points on 10 of 23 shooting, 9 rebounds and 3 assists. While John Wall goes by everybody for 21 points (8 of 18), 5 rebounds and 9 assists.

Green Light: In the absence of Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan, Danny Green and Tony Parker took over against the also injury riddled Minnesota Timberwolves. Danny Green hit a career high 8 three pointers on 12 attempts to drop 28 points in the win. Tony Parker chipped in for 31 points (11 of 23), 5 rebounds and 8 assists.

Miracle Whipped: The rivalry between the Dallas Mavericks and Portland Trail Blazers have become increasingly interesting over this season. Tied at one a piece for both teams, Dallas decided to take the lead in the series on OJ Mayo's 28 points (11 of 14), 4 rebounds and 5 assists. Portland's LaMarcus Aldridge put up a good effort with 27 points on 11 of 22 shooting, and 10 rebounds, but his team would fall short.


Wingspan: DeAndre Jordan abuses poor Nikola Vucevic.

Fancy: You would think DeJuan Blair could guard that pass. Seeing that he probably has to deal with it in practice when Manu Ginobili does it on him.
