Waiver-wire watch:

Beast of the Night: Kevin Durant rolled right along with 33 points, 11 boards, 3 assists, 2 steals, 1 block and 2 turnovers. He hit a three and shot 50 percent (9-18) from the field and 100 percent (14-14) from the line. Some thought using a No. 4 draft pick on him was a bit much, but it’s turning out to be about right.

Noteworthy Lines:
Andrea Bargnani – 14-21 FG (67%), 2-6 FT (33%), 4 3ptm, 34 Pts, 4 Reb, 1 Blk, 1 TO

Chris Bosh – 13-22 FG (59%), 9-12 FT (75%), 35 Pts, 15 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 Blk, 3 TO

Roy Hibbert – 7-12 FG (58%), 4-4 FT (100%), 18 Pts, 9 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Blk, 1 TO (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Carlos Boozer pummeled the Spurs with 27 points, 14 boards, 3 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks. He shot 60 percent (12-20) from the floor and a perfect 3-3 from the line while turning the ball over just once. The opportunity to buy low on Boozer might be gone.

Notable lines:
LeBron James – 9-17 FG (53%), 6-9 FT (67%), 1 3Ptm, 25 Pts, 7 Reb, 6 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 3 TO

Anderson Varejao – 5-7 FG (71%), 2-4 FT (50%), 12 Pts, 13 Reb, 1 Stl, 1 TO

Shaquille O’Neal – 7-13 FG (54%), 14 Pts, 10 Reb, 1 ast, 5 Blk, 3 TO

John Salmons – 6-13 FG (46%), 1-1 FT (100%), 1 3Ptm, 14 Pts, 4 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 Blk

Wesley Matthews – 5-8 FG (63%), 1-3 FT (33%), 1 3Ptm, 12 Pts, 3 Reb, 2 Stl

Antonio McDyess – 2-5 FG (40%), 2-2 FT (100%), 6 Pts, 4 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Blk (continue reading…)

Studs: LeBron James, Mo Williams

Duds: Zydrunas Ilgauskas

The Cavs are definitely sporting a new look this year, thanks mostly to the arrival of Shaquille O’Neal, who will start at center and relegate Ilgauskas to the bench. This is a bit unfortunate for Big Z, since he has somehow managed to remain productive despite being incredibly creaky and slow. Expect him to see about 18-20 minutes a night, which will drastically decrease his production, though a better-rested Ilgauskas could produce decent numbers when O’Neal sits  out of games.
