Doing Lines: Al Jefferson's a Winner

Every night there are some stupendous, silly, stupid, or downright outlandish individual lines from around the lig. Doing Lines lets you know which one tops the list.

The headline is both true and unbelievable. Minnesota is 9-2 in January, the latest triumph an overtime victory against Chicago. Al Jefferson registered as the only Wolves starter in double figures. Luckily, he made them count: 39 points on 16-29 shooting, nine rebounds and just one turnover.

Al's superhuman effort countered balanced play from the Bulls, which had six players with double-digit scoring. Joakim Noah might have had the best game of his pro career, notching 14 points, 10 rebounds and seven blocks. Obviously, Jefferson scored on the Bulls bigs at will. But Noah got his, y'all.

Nene is President: The Nuggets dropped the rival Jazz, thanks to Nene: 28 points on 12-12 shooting, nine rebounds and four steals. If Nene can keep forcing turnovers in the paint, the coupling with super-shifty Kenyon Martin might give Denver one of the most disruptive front lines in the business.

Jose C. is on the cut: Here's the Jose Calderon we know and love -- 16 points on nine FGAs, eight assists, zero turnovers and 3-3 at the line. Calderon's consecutive FTM streak is at something like 2,456 now.
