NBA

Player of the Night

G Dwyane Wade - Heat
Vs. Knicks
55 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists

How great has Wade been this season? I now think all Dwayne's spell their name Dwyane. Wade finished one point away from tying the franchise record for points in a game, held by Glen Rice (of "NBA In the Zone '98" fame). He may finish second in MVP voting to LeBron, but when you factor in the total package (points, assists, blocks), perhaps no player is more valuable fantasy-wise than D-Wade.

Player of the night

2B Chase Utley - Phillies
@ COL
2-for-3, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 3 R

A consensus top-two fantasy second baseman coming into the year, Utley is off to a blazing start for the WFC Phillies. He has eight hits in his first six games.
