Line of the Night: 12.29.13

DeMarcus Cousins and Isaiah Thomas have been playing very well together as of late, despite the Kings losing so many games.

DeMarcus Cousins and Isaiah Thomas have been playing very well together as of late, despite the Kings losing so many games.

Rudy Gay, DeMarcus Cousins and Isaiah Thomas continue to play well, Cousins especially, but the Kings still failed to secure a win against the Spurs despite an MVP performance form Cousins and 20+ points from three of their starters.  Kevin Durant posted another 30/10 game, this time against the Rockets, including a dunk on former teammate James Harden, as the Thunder rolled past Houston: 117-80.  The Atlanta Hawks fell to the Orlando Magic: 109-102.  The Hawks seem to be missing Al Horford.  Andre Iguodala posted a nice all-around game with some solid defensive stats and Stephen Curry posted a game-high 29 points, dueling with All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving.  Curry was 1 rebound short of a tiple-double as the Warriors beat the Cavaliers.  And Philly squared off against the Lakers.  Shawne William and Jordan Hill both posted double-doubles, and Nick Young scored a game-high 26 points against his former team, but the Lakers well to a well-balanced assault from the 76ers.

Kevin Durant earned LOTN with another 30/10 game.

Not as many options tonight as that past few, but still a couple of solid game.  Kevin Durant, though, is the clear-cut winner for Line of the Night this evening, and if he keeps up this level of scoring and rebounding throughout the season, he could be the first person to average 30/10 since Karl Malone.  Curry is a close second, but Durant’s rebounds+assist total is only 1 shy of Curry’s, and Durant’s FG% was much higher.  Durant also had fewer turnovers.
