Chris Bosh- The Heat won a very exciting game against the Celtics tonight to extend their streak to 23 games. Bosh didn’t have a huge game, but he was efficient from the field and had a stat line of 13 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 blocks. With Garnett not playing, I thought Bosh would have a big game, but he wasn’t needed and they got it done on the road.
Will Bynum- The Pistons got destroyed tonight by the Nets at home. Bynum had 18 points, 5 rebounds, and 6 assists, but there’s not much you can take out of getting mop up duty. Hopefully the Pistons are competitive in the next game and he gets some meaningful minutes.
Derrick Favors- The Jazz lost a close game at home against the Knicks and Favors wasn’t much help offensively. He shot 1-7 from the floor and was ineffective against a Knicks team that was without Stoudemire and Chandler. That’s somewhat surprising, but he did have 13 rebounds so he was helpful on the boards.
Jarrett Jack- Jack had 9 points, 2 rebounds, and 5 assists off the bench tonight for the Warriors. They beat the Hornets as expected, but it’s still nice to see them string together a few wins. They seem to be righting the ship at the same time Jack is coming out of his slump.
Anthony Morrow- Morrow finally got some minutes tonight for the Mavericks and it happened to be in his return home to Atlanta. In his 13 minutes of action, he scored 8 points and recorded 3 assists. Even better, he attempted 0 threes, which shows he is creating offense for himself besides just being a 3 point shooter. Hopefully his solid performance will convince the team to give him more playing time.
Iman Shumpet- Shumpert had a solid game tonight, scoring 8 points and grabbing 2 rebounds. he hasn’t been the same player this season after coming back from his ACL injury, so the expectations for him have decreased lately. It was a nice win on the road for his team since they are trying to avoid a slide in the standings.
Thaddeus Young- Young had the best performance out of anyone tonight, helping the 76ers edge out a close win at home against the Trailblazers. He had a very nice all around game, stuffing the stat sheet with 19 points on 9-15 shooting, 3 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 steals, and 2 blocks. His great play of late has helped the 76ers put together a few wins and give the fans in Philly something to be excited about.
