Line of the Night

Dwyane Wade (Miami Heat): 42 PTS, 4 REB, 3 AST, 12-19 FG (16-21 FT)

In all honesty, there is no one true Line of the Night from the Big East. Tons of guys put in work last night. Kyle Lowry contributed a double-double in Toronto's win over Brooklyn (Masai Ujiri and the rest of T-Dot likely used a few expletives after the victory). Shelvin Mack was lights out in Cleveland as the Hawks downed LeBron and the Cavs. Gordon Hayward put up near triple-dub numbers over Miami, but it was Dwyane Wade scoring almost half of the Heat's points last night that was enough to give him the upper hand, just slightly. D-Wade had his biggest scoring night in close to four years Wednesday, but when you trail by 17 in the first quarter, its hard to recover as a team, no matter how strong of a game you get from an individual.
