Line of the Night

Wesley Matthews (Portland Trailblazers): 22 PTS, 2 REB, 2 AST, 1 STL, 8-15 FG (5-8 3PT)

Early on, it looked like Dwyane Wade would get the nod, scoring 17 of his 23 points in the first half, but Miami was outplayed in the second and lost to PHILADELPHIA. So step on up Wes Matthews. Even though he wasn't the star of the show last night in OKC (again, that would be Dame Lilliard), Matthews scored 22 and hit five of Portland's season high 17 3-pointers in a come-from-behind win over the Thunder.
