John Wall (PG/Washington): Since when did scoring determine if John Wall was a great player or not? He can dish out assists, too. Wall had a rough shooting night (2-of-7) but had 13 assists in helping the Wizards defeat the Heat, 114-93.
Rajon Rondo (PG/Boston): Like Wall, Rondo doesn’t have to score to be an impact player. He was a basket short of a triple-double, though. Rondo tallied eight points, 14 assists, and 11 rebounds in a close loss to the Sixers, 113-108.
Patrick Patterson (PF/Toronto): Patterson had three points and five rebounds coming off the bench for the Raptors in their 110-100 win over the Bucks. The Raptors also won their 48th game, a franchise record.
Brandon Knight (PG/Milwaukee): Knight finished with 18 points and four assists for the Bucks in the loss.
Terrence Jones (PF/Houston): Jones had another big game for the Rockets; he posted 20 points and 11 rebounds in their 104-98 win over the Spurs.
Eric Bledsoe (PG/Phoenix): Bledsoe chipped in 13 points and five assists for the Suns in a close loss to the Grizzlies, 97-91.
