Beast of the Night: Danny Granger took advantage of playing the Warriors by producing 32 points, 13 rebounds, six assists, three steals, one block and four three-pointers. He shot 58 percent (11-19) from the field, 75 percent (6-8) from the line and had seven turnovers. This was his second straight game with 32 points, though Granger has been mostly disappointing lately. His owners might want to try and sell high now.
