Beast of the Night: Kevin Martin put up 30 points, four rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and four three-pointers in a loss to the Lakers.  He shot 53 percent (8-15) from the field, 91 percent (10-11) from the free-throw line and had three turnovers. Martin has been inconsistent lately but remains great for points, threes and free-throw percentage. Despite playing fewer minutes this season, he’s averaging more points, threes made and rebounds than he did last season.

Lines for Discussion:
Nick Young: 9-18 FG (50%), 9-12 FT (75%), 3 threes, 30 Pts, 4 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO

LaMarcus Aldridge: 16-23 FG (70%), 8-9 FT (89%), 40 Pts, 11 Reb, 2 Ast, 3 Stl, 1 Blk, 2 TO (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Kobe Bryant had a very efficient night, finishing with 33 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals, while hitting 3 threes in just three quarters of work against the Pistons. He shot 55 percent (11-20) from the field, 100 percent (8-8) from the free-throw line and had 3 turnovers.

Evan Turner: 3-8 FG (38%), 5-6 FT (83%), 11 Pts, 12 Reb, 4 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 TO

Chris Bosh: 12-17 FG (71%), 11-11 FT (100%), 35 Pts, 6 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Stl (continue reading…)
