The Cleveland Cavaliers lost again last night (107-98 in MIL) but don't blame Anthony Parker. He was ballin.

In 31 minutes and 56 seconds of NBA basketball artistry, AP scored 27 points. He launched 14 shots, connected on 11, was a sniper-esque 4 of 7 from three point range, and went 1 for 1 from the FT line as well. But it wasn't just about the prolific scoring from AP last night. The Bucks couldn't do anything to slow his relentless attack of the boards either, and he collected 7 rebounds as a result. This, to go along with 4 assists, 3 steals, and those 27 points. 

Anthony Parker the Cleveland Cavalier, now seven years removed from his EuroLeague dominace which resulted in international fame and glory, was simply this guy all over again last night:

I know it is 3 minutes and 43 seconds long, but you should honor AP by watching the above highlight video from the 2005 Maccabi Tel Aviv season in its entirety this morning. With the volume on full blast.

The 27 points that Parker scored last night matched his career high in the NBA. According to StepienRules.com statistician Dave Wooley, the last time Parker went for 27 was on April 8, 2007, against the Bulls, in a 103-89 Raptors win. Starters for that game (and the points they scored) were as follows:

Toronto: Chris Bosh (22), Anthony Parker (27), Joey Graham (19), TJ Ford (3) and Rasho Nesterovic (6) Chicago: Ben Gordon (27), Kirk Hinrich (13), Loul Deng (13), PJ Brown (9) and Ben Wallace (0)
