Beast of the Night: Rajon Rondo was a monster last night, finishing with 12 points, 10 rebounds, 22 assists, six steals and a block in a big win over the Spurs. He shot 60 percent (6-10) from the floor, avoided shooting any free throws, and had five turnovers. There’s not much that needs to be said here.

Beast of the Night: Pau Gasol showed that his hamstring is just fine, as he finished with 21 points, 14 rebounds, 8 assists, 1 steal, 5 blocks and 2 turnovers last night against the Wizards. He shot 39 percent (7-18) from the field and 88 percent (7-8) from the free-throw line. Gasol will take a slight hit when Andrew Bynum returns, but he’ll still be a top-tier fantasy stud.
