Boozer with a career-high 41 in a win over the Wizards
Deng with a career-high 38 in a win for the Bulls.
JJ plays 26 minutes and finishes with 12 points as the Magic put the Knicks playoff hopes at issue.
Seems like when he gets his minutes he provides... wish Brian Hill would give him minutes!

Good to see him doing well though.
Nah, Arenas is great. Yeah he has that chip-on-his-shoulder mentality to get himself motivated, but he actually gets over losses better than anyone I've ever seen.
I want Redick to succeed as much as anyone. He is consistently getting minutes now more than any other point in the season. The burden's now on him to make it count. I think he'll be fine. He just needs that one big game/shot to bring his confidence all the way back. I thought those three point opportunities last night would be just the opportunity. He'll continue to get minutes so it'll happen eventually.
then why was he posting about how he would "drop 80" on the CURRENT duke team earlier this season?
Look, I want to like Gilbert, I really do; but that guy really needs to give it a rest. He totally imploded in the first game against the cavs this year because he was still trying to get over game 6 last year.
I'm just impressed that someone actually stuck a possessive determiner in front of the Washington Wizards. I'm not sure I'd ever seen that before.Boozer destroyed my Wizards
A movie is not about what it's about; it's about how it's about it.

That game was played six years ago, in college, and NBA star Arenas still talks about it, bitterly in interviews and posts about it on his Web site. Joke or no joke, Arenas talking about what he'd do against current duke players tells me he has a problem.
And it's consistent with other actions of his. Everything with him is a personal vendetta. USA basketball, the all-star game, battles with lebron. The same story keeps playing out over and over again. It's not healthy.
His latest blog entry he explains things nicely -> http://www.nba.com/blog/gilbert_arenas.html
Arenas is the furthest thing from a sore loser. He missed a game-winnner this week, but didn't worry about it at all and still gave his jersey away to the fans like he always does. He's the most fan-friendly player in the league. After losing to the Cavs last year, he was in the Cavs locker room about an hour after the game joking around with them. He definitely doesn't hold any grudges against Duke.Then here comes Portland. Need that 50 against Portland.
I score nine the first game. Big ol’ hoopla about it, “Oh he only scored nine…” this and this…
Then Tuesday, 19. You know, I didn’t come through like I said on that one.
Then I turn on the TV and it’s like, “He should shut his big mouth, and just play basketball…he needs to focus.”
“He’s quirky, he’s crazy.”
Man, calling someone “quirky” or “crazy” is dismissive.
“Because I don’t understand him, he’s ‘crazy.’”
Now that’s crazy.
Since we’re talking about numbers, 95 percent of the things I said I was going to do, I did. The other five percent I get ripped for.
I get killed.
I guess they just don’t understand me.
To understand me is to understand a fan.
To understand a fan is to love the sport you’re watching.
I love the game of basketball.
I am a fan of the game of basketball, and that’s why I enjoy it.
Growing up, it wasn’t about the money. It wasn’t about the cars. It wasn’t about the bling-blau that it is today.
It was simple.
Personally, I think he's quirky. Maybe even crazy.
Andre Dawkins: “People ask me if I can still shoot, and I ask them if they can still breathe. That’s kind of the same thing.”
Arenas is an original. I wouldn't say the sport needs a ton more of him, one's probably enough. But he's good to have around.
