Player of the night

F Troy Murphy - Pacers
@ Sacramento
23 points, 10 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 blocks

When I page through NBA box scores each night, I expect to place LeBron, Kobe, or (of course) D-Wade in this spot most night. But Troy Murphy!? What gives? Next thing you know, Matt will be giving this honor to Adam Morrison tomorrow.

As Bulls fans found out about a week ago, Murphy has been playin' some very sold ball lately. He's been a moose on the boards (19 and 21 against the Knicks on Feb. 23!), and has really stepped up his game since All-Star Danny Granger went down to injury. Want to hear something wild? Murphy has eight consecutive double-doubles and 23 in his last 26 games.

Other stars

F Rashard Lewis - Magic
29 points, 12 rebounds, 3 assists

C Brook Lopez - Nets
@ Bucks
24 points, 12 rebounds, 3 blocks

(a bit of a stretch here, but he's more boy so....)

F Tyrus Thomas - Bulls
@ Bobcats
14 points, 12 rebounds, 3 blocks, 3 steals
