Tracy McGrady (Knicks): T-Mac made his Knicks debut last Saturday with 26 points, five assists, four rebounds, one three-pointer and one steal. He took 17 shots and played 32 minutes.

Eddie House (Knicks)- House set season highs in points (24) and minutes (34) in his Knicks debut. He is a great source for three-pointers and free throw percentage.

Sergio Rodriguez (Knicks)- Rodriguez also made his Knicks debut over the weekend and scored 5 points with 6 assists. He played in 25 minutes and attempted three three-pointers. He could be in the starting point guard lineup very soon.

Wes Matthews (Jazz)- Yesterday, Matthews has started the past two games and scored 12 points in 33 minutes. The Jazz traded Ronnie Brewer which created an open slot in the rotation.

Mario Chalmers (Heat)- Chalmers has been a disappointment this season but his last two games have been much better. He played  a season high 41 minutes last Friday scoring 18 points. The next day he had 11 points with 8 assists. He also has extra value this week with Dwyane Wade nursing a calf injury.
