 Looking back on Wednesday night's big lines from big name players, including LeBron James' 20,000th point: LeBron James: 25 points (11-20 FG, 2-3 FT), a three-pointer, seven rebounds 10 assists and a steal. He's pretty good. Pretty good. The King scored his 20,000 point, becoming the youngest in NBA history. Russell Westbrook: 32 points (12-20 FG, 8-9 FT), two rebounds, four assists and a steal. Kevin Durant: 20 points (7-12 FG, 4-5 FT), two three-pointers, two rebounds, four assists and five steals. The Thunder rolled over the Nuggets. Ugh, Garth. Carlos Boozer: 36 points (16-24 FG, 4-4 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists and one steal. You Booze, you lose win. Kyle Lowry: 26 points (8-15 FG, 8-11 FT), two three-pointers, five rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 34 minutes. So much for his sprained ankle. Paul George: 20 points (6-14 FG, 7-7 FT), a three-pointer, 10 rebounds, four assists and a block. He has dominated this season. Nikola Vucevic: 16 points (7-13 FG, 2-2 FT), 15 rebounds, an assist and a steal. Easily the best waiver wire pickup of the year. Brook Lopez: 22 points (10-14 FG, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds and a block. The best of the Nets' uninspiring lines. Jeff Teague: 28 points (12-18 FG, 1-2 FT), three three-pointers, four rebounds and 11 assists. A nice bounce-back game for Teague -- and the Hawks. Al-Farouq Aminu: 18 points (3-9 FG, 12-13 FT), nine rebounds, an assist and two steals. Not exactly a big name, but a big game. Paul Pierce: 12 points (5-16, 1-3 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists and a steal. What happened to everyone's shot last night? James Harden: 20 points (5-23 FG, 9-12 FT), a three-pointer, eight rebounds, seven assists and three steals. Harden killed your field-goal percentage, but filled up the stat line. OJ Mayo: 18 points (3-14 FG, 12-13 FT), six rebounds, eight assists, two steals and a block. More bad shooting, but lots of goodies. Rudy Gay: 17 points (7-13 FG, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block. Six turnovers, too. Tim Duncan: 19 points (9-17 FG, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and five blocks. What year is this? Nene: 15 points (7-12 FG, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block. Great line, but he's hard to trust health wise. DeMarcus Cousins: 21 points (9-19 FG, 3-3 FT), 16 rebounds, five assists and three steals. He's playing beyond beast mode. Kyrie Irving: 31 points (13-24 FG, 4-4 FT), a three-pointer, three rebounds, five assists and four steals. Nicolas Batum: 23 points (8-17 FG, 4-5 FT), three three-pointers, 12 rebounds, two assists and a steal. he had nine turnovers. Still, never trade him. Ever.
