Beast of the Night: Dirk Nowitzki finished with 33 points, 11 rebounds, six assists, a block and three three-pointers in just 31:21 of work last night. He shot 63 percent (12-19) from the floor and 75 percent (6-8) from the free-throw line, and had three turnovers. Diggler’s finally clicking and has been a top 15 contributor in the past month.

Lines for Discussion:
Brandon Bass: 4-7 FG (57%), 8 Pts, 10 Reb, 1 Blk, 1 TO; he’s been a decent low-end option all season, and now that Jermaine O’Neal’s done for the season, Bass will maintain bench-worthy value in most leagues

Gerald Wallace: 8-14 FG (57%), 10-11 FT (91%), 1 three, 27 Pts, 12 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Blk, 1 TO; Wallace will have a higher ceiling in New Jersey than he did in Portland

Carlos Boozer: 12-18 FG (67%), 24 Pts, 13 Reb, 2 Ast, 4 Stl, 1 TO; Boozer continues to struggle with consistency, but his weekly averages make him worth starting in normal-sized leagues

Waiver-Wire Watch (four stars = must add; one star = keep an eye on him):
Spencer Hawes 13 Pts, 11 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Stl, 3 Blk, 2 TO (****)

Reggie Williams: 13 Pts, 1 three, 6 Reb, 2 Ast (**)

Zaza Pachulia: 16 Pts, 13 Reb, 3 Stl, 2 TO (***)

Greg Stiemsma: 4 Pts, 3 Reb, 1 Stl, 4 Blk, 1 TO (*)

Tristan Thompson: 27 Pts, 12 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Blk, 2 TO (**)

John Lucas: 20 Pts, 4 threes, 1 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO (*)

Wilson Chandler: 13 Pts, 1 three, 4 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 Blk, 1 TO (****)

J.J. Barea: 6 Pts, 3 Reb, 10 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 TO (**)

Klay Thompson: 17 Pts, 3 threes, 1 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 1 TO (****)
