    The Stat Line of the Night — 11/29/10 — Russell Westbrook

    Kevin Durant may be the new young face of the NBA and an MVP candidate, but he may not even be the best player on his team.  Russell Westbrook has been having an outstanding start to the season and some say he may be more of a reason for the Thunder’s success than even Durant himself.  […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 11/28/10 — Jay Cutler

    The Bears have one of the best records in football, although they have been regarded by many as a team undeserving of their record for most of the season, and with good reason.  They have some glaring weaknesses and have gotten some lucky breaks against the few good teams they have played.  The Bears quarterback, […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 11/25/10 – Tom Brady

    The Lions jumped all over the Patriots early on Thanksgiving Day, and you were thinking that Grandma put too much liquor in the punch. Nope, your eyes were not deceiving you. The Lions indeed had 2 touchdowns before the Patriots got one. Maybe Tom Brady was up late surfing the web for Black Friday deals. […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 11/24/10 – Derrick Rose

    The Bulls are in the midst of a long road trip and were coming off a loss to the Lakers when they arrived in Phoenix. The wear and tear seemed like it was beginning to show as the Suns jumped on the Bulls early and led 36-17 at the end of the first. But Derrick […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 11/23/10 – Dirk Nowitzki

    The Stat Line of the Night – 11/23/10 – Dirk Nowitzki

    It took Dirk Nowitzki’s entire arsenal, and some help from his teammates, for the Dallas Mavericks to overcome the lowly Detroit Pistons last night.  Thankfully for Dallas, Dirk’s arsenal is enormous and effective.  He was his usual self last night, scoring on a variety of 3-pointers, jumpers, layups, and post moves.  After trailing by as […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 11/22/10 — Philip Rivers

    So this is what the San Diego Chargers were supposed to look like.  I wasn’t sure after watching them stumble their way to a 4-5 start.  The 35-14 shellacking they handed Denver on Monday Night Football last night seemed more appropriately matched to the expectations of this season.  As inconsistent as they have been, however, […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 11/22/10 — Drew Brees

    The Stat Line of the Night — 11/22/10 — Drew Brees

    Drew Brees has had days like this before.  Days where he’s not just good, but great.  This time, however, his phenomenal day put him over the top in terms of the all-time New Orleans Saints completion record.  His 1850th completion in the 2nd quarter broke Archie Manning’s record held since 1982.  On the other end […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 11/18/10 – Felix Hernandez

    The baseball public — and more importantly — the Baseball Writers’ Association of America is coming around to some critical thinking: wins aren’t what they used to be as a pitching stat. Why? Because Seattle Mariners’ pitcher Felix Hernandez was awarded the American League Cy Young with a record of just 13-12. His 13 wins […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 11/17/10 – Chris Bosh

    The Stat Line of the Night – 11/17/10 – Chris Bosh

    Chris Bosh had to know his numbers would take a dip after signing with the Miami Heat and teaming up with Dwyane Wade and LeBron James. Still, I doubt he thought they would be as low as they were heading into Wednesday night’s game against the Phoenix Suns. But the Heat pounded on the Suns […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 11/16/10 — Derrick Rose

    Derrick Rose was not going to let this so-called “Circus Trip” start off like it had the last 12 years.  Every season the Chicago Bulls head out west early in the season for an extended road trip and every year since Michael Jordan left the trip has gone poorly, at one point even resulting in […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 11/15/10 — Michael Vick

    The Stat Line of the Night — 11/15/10 — Michael Vick

    The Philadelphia Eagles faced the Washington Redskins last night.  The subplot of this game was the ‘Skins quarterback Donovan McNabb facing his old team and coming off a freshly signed $78 million extension.  Unfortunately for McNabb and the Redskins, there was only one storyline to watch last night, and that was the ongoing rejuvenation of […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 11/14/10 — Tom Brady

    The Stat Line of the Night — 11/14/10 — Tom Brady

    Some people were questioning the Patriots dominance after the shellacking they took from the perennial NFL bottom-feeder Cleveland Browns last week.  What happened to the dominant Patriots team many were picking to return to the Super Bowl this season?  Tom Brady had an answer for that question this week as the Patriots exorcised the demons […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 11/11/10 – Carmelo Anthony

    Everyone was talking about the Heat over the summer, but it was the Lakers and Hornets that were the two undefeated entering into Thursday night’s play. The Heat are a lousy 5-4. But so are the Nuggets — another team that many had high hopes for. They took on the Lakers in Denver on Thursday […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 11/10/10 – John Wall

    The Wizards were back in Washington last night taking on the woeful Houston Rockets. But like the Rockets, the Wiz were seeking just their second win of the young season. John Wall was ready to rock. Wall went out and dominated the Rockets, filling up the stat sheet in the process. Wall had 19 points […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — Paul Millsap — 11/9/10

    When you travel to South Beach to play the new NBA superteam, you expect to go against one of the best teams, if not the best, in the entire league.  The Utah Jazz faced the Miami Heat and the Heat gave them everything they had.  Dwyane Wade had 39 points, LeBron notched a triple-double, and […]
