Beast of the Night: Andrea Bargnani posted 36 points, six boards, two assists, two steals, a block and four three-pointers in his mighty comeback from a calf injury. He shot 48 percent (10-21) from the floor, 100 percent (12-12) from the free-throw line and had two turnovers. Bargnani is having himself a solid all-around season with no real signs of a letdown in sight.

Lines for Discussion:
Carmelo Anthony: 0-7 FG (0%), 1-1 FT (100%), 1 Pt, 11 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 TO; for a guy who was drafted in the first or second round, his top 35 value so far this season isn’t cutting it

Kemba Walker: 7-17 FG (41%), 6-6 FT (100%), 2 threes, 22 Pts, 5 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Blk, 4 TO; with D.J. Augustin sidelined for a while, Walker’s stock will rise in the coming days

Chris Bosh: 10-16 FG (63%), 14-14 FT (100%), 1 three, 35 Pts, 7 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Blk, 2 TO; Bosh is producing top 20 fantasy basketball averages this season

Marcin Gortat: 9-16 FG (56%), 3-5 FT 60%), 21 Pts, 12 Reb, 1 Ast, 2 Blk; he’s double-doubled in nine straight games now

O.J. Mayo: 8-15 FG (53%), 2-2 FT (100%), 2 threes, 20 Pts, 2 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO; Mayo is on a nice little streak right now but his ceiling remains low

Waiver-Wire Watch (four stars = must add; one star = keep an eye on him):
Samardo Samuels: 15 Pts, 5 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 2 TO (*)

Leandro Barbosa: 19 Pts, 3 threes, 2 Reb, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 1 TO (****)

James Johnson: 18 Pts, 10 Reb, 1 Stl, 2 TO (****)

Linas Kleiza: 5 Pts, 1 three, 10 Reb, 1 Stl, 2 TO (*)

Hakim Warrick: 17 Pts, 1 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 TO (*)

Marcus Camby: 3 Pts, 22 Reb, 1 Ast, 2 Stl, 5 Blk, 4 TO (**)
