Los Angeles Lakers
New York Knicks
Los Angeles Clippers
LeBron James: 39 points (17-25 FG, 4-4 FT), one three-pointer, seven rebounds, eight assists, three steals and a block. Absolutely dominant. The Heat are off for five days, which should give King James time to rest his nagging injuries.
Dwyane Wade: 27 points (11-20 FG, 5-7 FT), four rebounds, five assists, two steals and a block.
Kobe Bryant: 22 points (8-25 FG, 2-2 FT), four three-pointers, four rebounds, an assist and a steal. Not a good shooting night for the Mamba.
Pau Gasol: 12 points (4-7 FG, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, four assists and a steal. Gasol played 25 minutes in his return from a concussion. Earl Clark (six points and seven rebounds) played 22 minutes.
Carmelo Anthony: 26 points (8-19, 7-9 FT), three three-pointers, four assists and two blocks.
Andre Drummond: 11 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, an assists, two steals and two blocks. The rookie played just 23 minutes. Imagine what he could do in 36 minutes -- if he can stay out of foul trouble.
Jamal Crawford: 22 points (7-17 FG, 5-8 FT), three three-pointers, two rebounds, three assists and two steals. Crawford is on a heater. He's coming off 30 points (with five three-pointers).
Shannon Brown: 20 points (8-18 FG, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, two assists and four steals. Brown is heating up off the bench in his last four games. The P.J. Tucker experiment should mercifully end soon (we hope).
Larry Sanders: 19 points (8-14 FG, 3-3 FT), 15 rebounds, an assist and two blocks. Sanders is in the running for best waiver wire pickup of the year.
Monta Ellis: 24 points (10-20 FG, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, six assists and three steals. Ellis' best shooting night of the month.
Luke Ridnour: 21 points (9-17 FG), three three-pointers, four rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block. Ridnour led the offense. Alexey Sheved (eight points, three rebounds, two assists and a steal) moved to the bench, and Ricky Rubio got the start but struggled, hitting just two-of-nine shots (four points, three rebounds, six assists and a steal).
BEST OF MAXIM

The Las Angeles Lakers have had their struggles well documented to start the season. Last night was no different in their 99-90 loss to the Miami Heat. With 4 NBA all-star starters in this game (two on each team) we figured this game would be a little more entertaining. Other than the dunk fest in the first couple minutes of the game it was quite boring. Check out LeBron...
