Beast of the Night: LeBron James showed Chicago the talents he took elsewhere by posting 29 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block.  He shot 57 percent (12-21) from the field, 83 percent (5-6) from the free-throw line and had two turnovers. Despite what the real-life MVP race (and Chris Bosh) says, James was the best fantasy player for at least one night.

Lines for Discussion:
Luol Deng: 7-12 FG (58%), 5-5 FT (100%), 1 three, 20 Pts, 10 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 4 TO

Derrick Rose: 9-24 FG (38%), 7-8 FT (88%), 1 three, 26 Pts, 5 Reb, 6 Ast, 4 TO

Wilson Chandler: 5-9 FG (56%), 3-4 FT (75%), 3 threes, 16 Pts, 5 Reb, 1 Stl, 1 Blk

Raymond Felton: 2-8 FG (25%), 4 Pts, 5 Reb, 6 Ast, 4 TO

Waiver-Wire Watch:
Mario Chalmers, Omer Asik, Ronnie Brewer, Delonte West, Kenyon Martin

Injuries:
Shaquille O’Neal (Achilles): will start when he returns next week

Leon Powe (knee): waived by the Cavs; see where he lands

Kevin Martin (illness): missed Thursday’s shootaround but is expected to play tonight

Matt Barnes (knee): hopes to return Sunday, but coach Phil Jackson sounds more cautious

Marcus Camby (knee): could return tonight, but officially listed as “doubtful”

Francisco Garcia (calf): expected to miss another week or two

For Next Week:
4 games: ATL, BOS, CHI, DEN, GS, IND, MIN, NO, NY, PHO, SA, WAS
3 games: CHA, CLE, DAL, DET, HOU, LAC, LAL, MEM, MIA, MIL, NJ, OKC, ORL, PHI, POR, SAC, TOR, UTA
