Beast of the Night: Russell Westbrook put up 29 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals and 4 turnovers while shooting 54 percent (13-24) from the field and 60 percent (3-5) from the line. In leagues that take into account field goal percentage and turnovers, Westbrook’s value is limited, but his ability to put up great all-around numbers is too good to overlook.

Notable lines:
Michael Beasley – 10-21 FG (48%), 1-2 FT (50%), 1 3ptm, 22 Pts, 8 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 Blk, 3 TO

Kirk Hinrich – 5-12 FG (42%), 3-4 FT (75%), 2 3ptm, 15 Pts, 3 Reb, 7 Ast, 4 Stl, 1 TO

David West – 9-13 FG (69%), 2-2 FT (100%), 22 Pts, 9 Reb, 1 Ast, 3 Stl, 2 Blk, 3 TO

Andrei Kirilenko – 5-10 FG (50%), 5-5 FT (100%), 15 Pts, 2 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Blk

Andre Miller – 9-20 FG (45%), 4-7 FT (57%), 22 Pts, 3 Reb, 16 Ast, 3 Stl, 2 TO

Marcus Camby – 4-9 FG (44%), 1-2 FT (50%), 9 Pts, 15 Reb, 6 Ast, 3 Stl, 3 Blk, 1 TO
