Only two games in the association last night.  The Spurs went up against the in Brooklyn.  Greg Popovich gave Tim Duncan a ‘DNP: OLD’ after having to put up 40 minutes in a double-overtime win against the Wizards where Duncan posted a 30/10 game and earned Line of the Night.  Brooklyn took full advantage of Duncan’s absence and beat the Spurs.  Alan Anderson scored a game-high 22 points, but there were not games of note as not single player managed to exceed 22 points or record a double-double.  The Bulls, who only dressed 8 players for the game, fell to the Warriors, giving coach Mark Jackson the 100th win of his coaching career.  Joakim Noah got a double-double the hard way: with assists and rebounds.  He was 3 points shy of a triple-double, part do his paltry 3/9 shooting.  Taj Gibson posted 26 points and brought down 13 boards, which was good enough to lead all players last night.  Stephen Curry posted an evening-high 34 points. 

Stephen Curry earned Line of the Night honours with a 34-point performance that took the Warriors past the Bulls.

There isn’t much to choose from here, but Curry made the choice pretty easy.  Gibson’s defensive stats were solid, and he had the best rebounding numbers of the evening, but he took 4 more shots than Curry and came up with 8 fewer points, and Curry also managed 9 assists, 1 shy of a 30/10 game.  Curry gets my vote for Line of the Night.
