Chris Paul

Beast of the Night: Chris Paul posted 26 points, 14 assists, two steals and two three-pointers last night. He shot 75 percent (12-16) from the field and had two turnovers. His hamstring injury was a bummer earlier this month, but CP3 is back to business as usual. His averages are second best to LeBron James this season.

Lines for Discussion:
Joakim Noah: 5-6 FG (83%), 4-4 FT (100%), 14 Pts, 13 Reb, 7 Ast, 3 TO; that’s five consecutive double-doubles for Noah, who’s also dishing out 4.6 assists per game in that stretch

Ryan Anderson: 6-13 FG (46%), 2-4 FT (50%), 14 Pts, 20 Reb, 1 TO; he’s maintaining first-round value so far this season

Michael Beasley: 10-14 FG (71%), 12-12 FT (100%), 2 threes, 34 Pts, 3 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 TO; sell high — he’s not the type of guy you take home for the rest of the season, if you catch my drift

Jared Dudley: 3-8 FG (38%), 6-6 FT (100%), 3 threes, 15 Pts, 5 Reb, 3 Ast; see if he can keep things rolling

Mo Williams: 4-11 FG (36%), 4 threes, 12 Pts, 1 Reb, 5 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 TO; Williams has hit at least two three-pointers in each of his last seven games

Waiver-Wire Watch (four stars = must add; one star = keep an eye on him):
Kyle Korver: 17 Pts, 5 threes, 5 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 TO (**)

Trevor Booker: 14 Pts, 9 Reb, 2 Ast, 3 Stl, 2 Blk (*)

Martell Webster: 7 Pts, 3 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 Blk, 3 TO (*)

Austin Daye: 10 Pts, 5 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 Blk, 2 TO (****)

Mike Dunleavy: 20 Pts, 2 threes, 3 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO (***)

Josh Howard: 11 Pts, 1 three, 7 Reb, 4 Ast, 3 TO (*)
