Beast of the Night: Danny Granger put up 22 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals, 2 blocks and hit 4 threes in an easy victory over the Clippers. He shot 43 percent (6-14) from the field, 86 percent (6-7) from the field and had no turnovers. Granger’s returning top-10 value so far this season, but DNPs loom.

Lines for Discussion:
Jameer Nelson: 6-8 FG (75%), 1-1 FT (100%), 2 threes, 15 Pts, 12 Ast, 1 Stl

Arron Afflalo: 5-11 FG (46%), 2-2 FT (100%), 4 threes, 16 Pts, 11 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Luol Deng put up 26 points, 11 rebounds, 6 assists, 1 steal, 2 blocks and hit 2 threes in a blowout victory over the Warriors last night.

Lines for Discussion:
Ray Allen: 13-23 FG (57%), 2-2 FT (100%), 7 threes, 35 Pts, 1 Reb, 2 TO

Dwyane Wade: 2-12 FG (17%), 4-6 FT (67%), 8 Pts, 1 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Blk, 6 TO (continue reading…)
