Player of the Night

Dwayne Wade, Miami Heat
vs. Detroit Pistons
39 points, 2 boards, 6 dimes, 4 blocks, 2 steals

Just another night, another dominant performance by Dwayne Wade that makes you realize how ridiculous this young man is.

With 13 games left on the schedule, would you want anyone else as your playoff closer?

Find out after the jump...

The short answer is no, you don't.

Wade has been consistently scorching teams and with a soft closing schedule, he'll continue to do much of the same. This week he'll be feasting on Memphis, Indiana, Chicago and Milwaukee.

Thank your lucky stars that Wade fell into your lap.

Top Performers

LeBron James, Cleveland Cavaliers
vs. New Jersey Nets
30 points, 8 dimes, 11 boards

Kevin Durant, OKC Thunder
vs. Minnesota Timberwolves
30 points, 8 dimes, 5 boards

Chris Paul, New Orleans Hornets
vs. Los Angeles Lakers
27 points, 8 boards, 8 dimes

Bust of the Night

Baron Davis, Los Angeles Clippers
vs. Toronto Raptors
12 points, 4 boards, 4 dimes, 3-for-15 from the floor, 5 TO

Now you see him, and this morning you don't.

In typical Baron Davis fashion, he failed to show up last night as the Clippers suffered a 24-point drubbing to the Raptors up in Canada.
