Beast of the Night: Carmelo Anthony filled the stat sheet with 32 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assists, 4 steals and 2 blocks, along with a three and 4 turnovers last night in Chicago. He shot 50 percent (11-22) from the field and 100 percent (9-9) from the line. Anthony’s having a solid start to the season so far, and while he’s scoring fewer points than last season, all his other categories have improved. ‘Melo started strong last season but came back down to earth, so let’s see if he can keep this up.

Manu Ginobili: 9-17 FG (53%), 3-3 FT (100%), 5 threes, 26 Pts, 5 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 Stl, 3 TO

Beast of the Night: Chris Paul rocked the Rockets with 25 points, 7 rebounds, 8 assists, 4 steals, 1 block, 1 turnover and a three to top things off. He shot 58 percent (7-12) from the field and 83 percent (10-12) from the free-throw line. Of the top-three picks heading into the season, Paul is the only one who has justified that status so far this season.

Weekend Wonder: O.J. Mayo averaged 24.5 points, 4.5 threes, 5.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 3 steals, 1 block and 2.5 turnovers in his two games over the weekend. He shot 44.7 percent from the field and 100 percent from the line. I’m trying to think of a clever way to incorporate the word “mustard” or “ketchup” here, but I can’t.

Lines for Discussion:
Rajon Rondo (10/29): 4-12 FG (33%), 2-6 FT (33%), 10 Pts, 10 Reb, 24 Ast, 1 Stl, 7 TO

Dwight Howard (10/29): 8-15 FG (53%), 3-7 FT (43%), 19 Pts, 7 Reb, 2 Stl, 1 Blk, 1 TO (continue reading…)
