The Net earned a much needed win last night as they beat the Bucks.  Kevin Durant posted a game-high 32-points as the Thunder topped the Bobcats.  The Warriors extended their winning streak to 4 games at the expense of the Suns.  Stephen Curry posted a triple-double.  John Wall posted a game-high 26 points, but it was not enough for the Wizards as the T-Wolves got big double-doubles out of Nikola Pekovic and a near triple-double from Ricky Rubio.  The Nugget lost their 5th straight game as the Pelicans successfully defended their home court.  There seems to be no sign of the Knicks overcoming their recent woes as the Raptors went into Madison Square garden and earned a win.  Jonas Valanciunas posted an evening-high 18 rebounds.  The Orlando Magic topped the Detroit Pistons, while the Utah Jazz beat the Los Angeles Lakers.  In the biggest surprise of the night, the Sacramento Kings exacted revenge on the Miami Heat for a recent loss by surprising the defending champions be beating them by a basket. LeBron James posted an evening-high 33 points, grabbing 8 rebounds and handing out 8 assists, which was enough to pass Gary Payton on the all-time scoring list, but not enough to trump DeMarcus Cousins 27-points+17-rebound performance. 

LeBron James and Kevin Durant were both in actions last night (though not against each other) and both posted MVP numbers.

My pick for Line-of-the-Night goes to DeMarcus Cousins.  Curry’s 3D game was impressive, but his point totally was much lower than what Cousins posted, and his FG% was embarrassing.  Durant and James were both scoring machines last night, Neither had the kind of all-around game that Cousins had.
