Line of the Night: December 7th

Stephen Curry helped lead the Warriors to a win over the Grizzlies.

Stephen Curry helped lead the Warriors to a win over the Grizzlies.

Every member of Detroit’s starting front court reached double-digits in rebounds last night and Brandon Jennings took 22 shots (not surprising) and actually shot above .500 from the floor (very surprising) as the Pistons reached .500 on the season.  Three Clippers posted double-doubles and Chris Paul was flirting with a triple-double, but it was not enough to beat the Cavaliers who successfully defended their home court.  Triston Thompson has continued his career year with another 20/10 game and Anderson Varejao came off the bench to chip in 17 rebounds.  Stephen Curry and David Lee posted 20/10 games and Klay Thompson posted 30 points and the Warriors trounced the Grizzlies.  The Nets earned a much needed win over the Bucks behind a 32-point performance from Brook Lopez.  LeBron James was 2 assists shy of a triple-double as the Heat beat the T-Wolves who were without Kevin Love.  The Indiana Pacers visited the defending Western Conference champs in San Antonio and came away with a big win.  The Dallas Mavericks got a solid game out of Dirk Nowitzki as they beat the Trailbalzers by a basket.  The 76ers fell to the Nuggets, and, finally, the Kings earned a win over the Utah Jazz.  DeMarcus Cousins had a game-high 28 points and rookie point guard Trey Burke nearly had a triple-double. 

Tristan Thompson posted another 20/10 game for the Cavs.

Some solid numbers were posted, but I have to go with reigning league and Finals MVP LeBron Jame.  While 21 points may seem meagre, the fact that he was 9/12 and grabbed 14 boards while handing out 8 assists is pretty impressive.  The 2 steals is icing on the cake.
