DeAndre Jordan led all players in rebounds and blocks.

Slow night in the NBA.  In one of the three games the Clippers played host to the Orlando Magic.  Only one starter for the Magic broke single digits, and no Magic starter scored more than 12 points, though Victor Oladipo and Maurice Harkless both came off the bench to score an impressive 22 points each.  It was not enough to beat the Clippers, however, despite the fact the All-Star point guard Chris Paul was out of the line-up.  Darren Collison led the way for the Clippers with 21 points and DeAndre Jordan was 2 blocks shy of a triple-double. All-Star centers Al Horford and Brook Lopez were both out as the Hawks faced the Nets.  Brooklyn came out on top and Joe Johnson scored a game-high 23 points.  And finally, the Minnesota Timberwolves put on a clinic in Philly as they handed the 76ers their 22nd loss of the season.  Kevin Love scored an evening-high 26 points in only 29 minutes. 

Kevin Love's 26 points was enough for an evening high.

Not a lot to choose from tonight.  Not even a 20/10 game.  Love led the way in scoring, but Griffin had a better all-around game.  Oladipo was the closest to posting a 20/10 game, but I’ll go with DeAndre Jordan.  His 17 rebounds was head-and-shoulders above any other player last night, as were his astounding 8 blocks.  His 14 points is a low total, but he also scored it shooting .600 from the floor.
