LeBron James, Terrence Ross

After putting up 19 points and 12 assists against the Knicks in Cleveland’s 90-87 win, LeBron James put up another double-double against the Eastern Conference’s best when the Cavs defeated the Raptors Friday night, 105-91.

Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant, the facilitator? Sounds weird, right, except that’s exactly the role Kobe inhabited last night in the Lakers’ 129-122 overtime win over the Eastern Conference leading Raptors at Staples Center. While the night featured 12 Bryant dimes, a rarity during his Hall-of-Fame career, there were also at least one play that sums up Bryant’s rage against the dying of the light, too.
