Ty Lawson and J.J. Hickson both recorded 20/10 games for the Nuggets, but it was not enough to pull Denver ahead of the Jazz who received a career-high 34 points from Alec Burks.  The Raptors continued to build up their lead in Atlantic division with a win over the Bucks.  The Knicks extended their win sreak to five games at the expense of the Phoenix Suns.  Carmelo Anthony posted a game-high 29 points and 16 rebounds.  The Spurs maintained the West’s best record with a win over the Pelicans, led by 27 points from Tony Parker.  The Magic’s losing streak was extended to 8 games last night as they fell to the Mavericks.  One losing streak and one winning streak were started and ended as the Wizards topped the Bulls.  And, finally, the league’s longest losing streak was extended to 9 games as the Celtics fell to the Rockets.  Dwight Howard posted the only 30/10 game of the evening. 

Dwight Howard earned Line of the Night honours by posting the only 30/10 game.

My pick for Line of the Night goes to Dwight Howard.  Carmelo Anthony’s rebounding total may have given him an edge over Dwight, but his field goal percentage ruined that.  Dwight took 7 fewer shots than Melo and made 2 more while outscoring Melo by 3 points.  Dwight was also the only 30-point scored to crack double digit in another statistical category.
