New sneakers, same game for LeBron. He dropped 26 while getting a little help from Mario Chalmers as Miami ran Dallas off their own court.
If you want to believe 2K12, Kevin Durant will have the best individual performance on Christmas, ripping the nets for 41 points in an 120-115 overtime win over Dwight Howard (14 points, 13 rebounds) and Orlando.
Despite Blake Griffin‘s big night (26 points, 12 rebounds), Chris Paul wasn’t feeling the red uniform, playing about as bad as he did at times during the second half of last season (everyone seems to forget this). Monta Ellis (28 points) and Dorell Wright (20 points, eight rebounds) were just too much to overcome. The Warriors ended up beating America’s new team by 12.
Do you think these simulations will prove accurate? Who has the best shot to win on Sunday?
