The 76ers lost a close one in Portland, but not to the fault of Jrue Holiday, who finished with 29 points, nine boards and nine assists. He's really taken the next step in his development as a complete point guard.
Brandon Jennings dropped 25 points and seven assists, making Mario Chalmers and the Miami Heat points guards look downright silly.
Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant combined for 54 points and have the Thunder playing championship-caliber basketball.
A couple of rookies looked sharp in Orlando, with Andrew Nicholson getting the start and finishing with 22 points and seven boards. Terrence Ross scored 16 points for the Raptors, including 4-of-5 from downtown off the bench in the Raptors' 123-88 blowout win.
And in Atlanta, where the Hawks came out on top, 109-100, over Indiana, Lou Williams got the start in place of Josh Smith who was out with a strained hip flexor, finishing with 21 points and 12 assists in a complete playmaker performance.
