Eric Bledsoe led the Suns past the Warriors with a near triple-double.

Eric Bledsoe led the Suns past the Warriors with a near triple-double.

LaMarcus Aldridge continued his MVP-level play, posting another 20/10 game and leading the Trailblazers past the Detroit Pistons in overtime.  Josh Smith led all scorers last night with 31 points.  The Denver Nuggets downed the New Orleans Pelicans.  Ryan Anderson scored a game-high 26 points.  Zach Randolph posted a solid game, but it was not enough for the Grizzlies to overcome the T-Wolves.  Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant posted solid numbers as the Thunder beat the Magic.  Nikola Vucevic posted an evening-high 16 rebounds.  Eric Bledsoe had a near-triple-double as he led the Suns past the visiting Warriors.  Stephen Curry posted a game-high 30 points.  And DeMarcus Cousins went head-to-head against Dwight Howard and came out on top as the Kings, with newly acquired forwards Derrick Williams and Rudy Gay, managed their first win with Rudy Gay in the line-up.

Kevin Durant had another MVP caliber night.

Kevin Durant had another MVP caliber night.

My pick for Line of the Night goes to Kevin Durant.  There are some solid lines from last night, and it is a close call.  Bledsoe’s near triple-double is impressive, as was Aldridge’s 20/10 game, but Durant’s field goal percentage was a little high, and he had a solid all-around game with some good rebounds, decent play-making and a solid defensive effort.
