We're back to checking out the league's primo content deliverers, the guys who can dish out dimes like no other, swish three's like they're getting paid for it (even though they actually are), and block shots like they're diseases.

But really, this column is all about giving props to the stars and tiny shout-outs to the rookies and younger players who step it up every now and then.

Last night was filled with solid performances, but the stage was surely owned by Golden State rookie guard, Stephen Curry, as he was absolutely dominant in a huge win over the L.A. Clippers.

Read on for all the details, or hit up the article at The Red Zone Report.

Miami Heat @ Atlanta Hawks

Miami won convincingly by 18, behind Dwyane Wade's double-double of 18 points and 11 assists, along with Jermaine O'Neal's double-double of 19 points and 10 boards.

Udonis Haslem chipped in his own deuce (14 and 12), while Daquen Cook got his shot ready for the three-point contests, knocking down three trey's en route to 17 points.

Philadelphia 76ers @ Toronto Raptors

Louis Williams was the lone bright spot in this loss for the 76ers, as he came off the bench to score 26 points on 9-of-13 shooting, while playing just 27 minutes.

Chris Bosh paced the Raptors with a solid double-double of 23 points and 12 rebounds, while Sonny Weems chipped in a respectable 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting.

Sacramento Kings @ Detroit Pistons

Despite on-going trade rumors, Kevin Martin found himself back in the starting lineup and on-target, hitting 9-of-15 shots en route to a solid 26-point effort.

Beno Udrih helped put the Pistons away, scoring 22 points and dishing out six assists off the bench.

Detroit offered very little fantasy depth, but did see Tayshaun Prince deliver a nice, efficient game, hitting 11-of-15 shots, as he scored 23 points and grabbed five boards.

Milwaukee Bucks @ New Jersey Nets

Barely over 1,000 fans were in attendance (due to bad weather), to watch the Bucks destroy the Nets, as Andrew Bogut continued his consistent play with 22 points and nine rebounds, and Luke Ridnour chipped in 17 points off the bench.

Devin Harris was the only New Jersey player to score over 11 points, as he had 27 points, while managing to dish out nine assists.

Boston Celtics @ New Orleans Hornets

While the Celtics were playing uninspired ball in a loss, the rest of us were given the joy of seeing Darren Collison continue to develop, as he scored 25 points and handed out nine dimes (but also committed 10 turnovers).

Morris Peterson recorded his fourth straight start (and game over 20 minutes), while scoring 16 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. That was the first time all season that Peterson scored more than 10 points in a game.

Charlotte Bobcats @ Minnesota Timberwolves

Stephen Jackson has an elite effort with 33 points, along with five assists and four boards, but Nazr Mohammad was he real story in Charlotte's win, as he scored 21 points and grabbed 20 rebounds.

There wasn't much to cheer about for Minnesota, but Al Jefferson was able to chip in a double-double effort, scoring 19 points and grabbing 10 boards.

Rookie Wayne Ellington chipped in 13 points, as well, giving him two straight 13+ efforts.

Orlando Magic @ Chicago Bulls

The Magic had a great offensive showing against Chicago, but spread the ball around too well for any one individual to truly shine, although Dwight Howard did post his usual double-double, notching 19 points and 14 rebounds.

J.J. Redick and Jason Williams proved their worth off the bench. However, as they both recorded 10 points. Redick even added five rebounds and four assists.

Luol Deng was the only elite player for the Bulls, as he scored 23 points in the 20-point loss.

Portland Trail Blazers @ Phoenix Suns

Steve Blake had a great game with 12 assists (don't expect that to be the norm), as he joined Andre Miller and LaMarcus Aldridge in topping 20 points on the night.

Steve Nash delivered his usual double-double, as he scored 15 points and handed out 11 assists. Trade rumor-king, Amare Stoudemire, scored 24 points.

L.A. Lakers @ Utah Jazz

The Lakers beat the Jazz without Kobe Bryant (for the second straight game), as they were powered by double-double's behind Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom.

Gasol scored 22 points and grabbed 19 rebounds, while also blocking five shots, while Odom notched 25 points and 11 boards. Jordan Farmar was great off the bench, chipping in 18 points.

For Utah, Deron Williams narrowly missed out on a triple-double, scoring 11 points, dishing out nine dimes, and grabbing nine rebounds.

Andrei Kirilenko recorded 14th straight start, as well as his 10th consecutive game with at least 10 points, as he scored 17, grabbed five rebounds, and blocked four shots.

L.A. Clippers @ Golden State Warriors

Al Thornton is the only Clipper really worth mentioning, as he scored 18 points off the bench in a horrible defensive effort.

We saved the best for last, as rookie guard Stephen Curry had his best game of his young career, notching his first-ever triple-double with 36 points, 10 assists, and 10 rebounds.

He became the first Warriors rookie to notch a triple-double since Chris Webber in 1993 and is the first player to have a line of 30-10-10 since Kevin Johnson in 1988.

Antony Morrow and Anthony Tolliver helped cap a 132-point night and win for the Warriors as they both scored at least 26 points on great shooting.
