Line of the Night

Greg Monroe (Detroit Pistons): 23 PTS, 18 REB, 3 AST, 1 STL, 8-17 FG

Not the most efficient night in the world for Greg Monroe, but he isn't here because of his shooting. Look at the rebounds! Whenever you get over 15 rebounds, people tend to take notice. The former Georgetown standout is an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and if performances like these persist, he'll be looking at a max contract.

Kyle Lowry (Toronto Raptors): 35 PTS, 4 REB, 3 AST, 2 STL, 12-17 FG

Kyle Lowry, on the other hand, *is* here because of his efficiency. 35 points on only 17 shots is remarkable. Watching Lowry continue to grow and develop as a player is going to be great. I guess he's seasoned because the Celtics were giving him salty looks all night tonight.

Vine of the Night

Alright, this isn't technically a Vine... but come on, what did you expect here? Gordon Hayward turned the tables on LeBron James with a chasedown block and dunk on the other end. LeBron has practically patented that over the years. Awesome to see from the Jazz's emerging superstar.

I wasn't expecting to have two Vines of the Night, especially not from the same person, but Gordon Hayward is just that good. In addition to the huge block on LeBron he hit a buzzer-beater to sink the Cavs. What can't he do?
