Player of the Night

Tony Parker, San Antonio Spurs
vs. Portland Trailblazers
39 points, 9 dimes, 5 boards,

With Tim Duncan out of the lineup for the second straight game, the French import exploded for 39 points in a big win over the Trailblazers last night. Parker may be the best point guard in the league when it comes to playing in the paint. He's fearless driving to the basket and is one of the more under appreciated players in the Association.

Keep riding him until Timmy comes back because with Michael Finley and Matt Bonner the only other healthy options, TP will need to do some damage.

Follow along after the jump...

Top Performers

Devin Harris, New Jersey Nets
vs. Chicago Bulls
42 points, 6 dimes, 4 boards

Dwight Howard, Orlando Magic
vs. New York Knicks
24 points, 24 boards, 4 blocks

Kevin Love, Minnesota Timberwolves
vs. Utah Jazz
24 points, 15 boards, 10-for-12 from the field

Bust of the Night

Derrick Rose, Chicago Bulls
vs. New Jersey Nets
9 points, 5 dimes, 2 boards

It kills me to put D. Rose up here, but last night he was put to shame by Devin Harris. Rose looked lost on defense and watched helplessly as his teammates jacked up shot after shot, ignoring the set offense.

Now his coach is yanking him at the end of games and Rose's confidence now has to come into question.

It's time for a new coach.
