Beast of the Night: Derrick Rose wrecked the Celtics with 39 points, 5 rebounds, 7 assists, 3 blocks and 2 turnovers. He shot 68 percent (15-22) from the field and 90 percent (9-10) from the line. Rose didn’t make quite the second-year jump that many expected of him but that won’t stop owners from tagging him with hopes of a breakout season in 2010-11.

Noteworthy Lines:
Kevin Garnett – 5-12 FG (42%), 4-5 FT (80%), 14 Pts, 9 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 TO; This was a hugely disappointing season for Garnett, and owners who thought he could put together a turnaround were way off the mark. Hoping for a revived KG next season is like hoping for a resuscitation of Lindsay Lohan’s film career – it’s not going to happen.

Kirk Hinrich – 11-20 FG (55%), 4-5 FT (80%), 4 3ptm, 30 Pts, 4 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO; Spock is usually unappreciated but his all-around fantasy production can’t be denied on most weeks. His value will probably take a hit next year, since Chicago is set to make a run for at least one big-name free agent.

Paul Millsap – 5-11 FG (46%), 10 Pts, 24 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 TO; As always, he shows what he can do with major minutes and he’ll be a very intriguing player in next year’s drafts. He should have another big game tonight.

Jason Thompson – 8-18 FG (44%), 3-4 FT (75%), 19 Pts, 16 Reb, 5 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 TO; He’s fulfilling his sleeper tag lately, but Thompson’s been a relative disappointment this season, thanks to paltry minutes.

Waiver Wire Appeal (players who should get extra run tonight as starters either sit out with injuries or to get rest):
Reggie Williams

Jamario Moon

Steve Blake

DeAndre Jordan

Delonte West

Shannon Brown

Sasha Vujacic
