3-way tie: Brandon, Larry, Luc. Hard choosing between those.

Moute. His defense is incredible. There was one possession where Lebron tried about 7 different fakes and Moute didn't budge for one of them. Lebron then air-balled a fadeaway. None of the big three could ever really get it going tonight, big part I think cuz of Moute's defense. Also had a real solid offensive game. Sanders and Jennings both tied for second.

My vote is for LRMAM, wow he really stepped his game up. When he is shooting the ball well he is a very very good all around player. Allways has great D but his hard work on his shot really is starting to pay off. He has no problem with driving to the hoop. Really controlled LBJ at the end of the game too. Tough vote, I think it could have gone easily to Jennings or Sanders also. Great win, hope they can back it up against the Pistons..

Went with Brandon. Was a toss up though. Larry and Luc were also spectacular.

Tough decision between the obvious four. Went with Luc tonight, though. Great game from him.

Just about. It has to be Luc, then Brandon about as close as second place to get, then Larry, for me.

I still don't want Luc taking any jumpers that aren't wide open looks in the final third of the shot clock, but I'll live with it only if he manages to take it to the rim and draw contact on offense as he has been lately. He and Larry have been the biggest surprises this season, and I hope they both continue to progress at a steady rate. I love the Luc/Tobias rotation (assuming Luc moves back to the 3 spot to start games, and his versatility matchup-wise becomes even bigger if his offense has really improved as we've seen) going into the future.

All of the above? Went with Jennings. I think the first moment with Chalmers sort of was a turning point and we salvaged the quarter.

Went with Jennings but it could easily been any of him, Luc, Larry. Great team effort

Moute all the way. He got critical buckets for us all night and battled the crap out of the Heat underneath the boards while at the same time frustrating LeBron a bit.

For brief glimpses now he's starting to look like Ron Artest did about 8-9 years ago when Ron was in his prime. He's not there yet but he's looking really good.

Can an imaginary core of prime-Artest/poor-man's-Ibaka/Udoh/Henson/Jennings/Harris/Lamb/return-for-Ellis-andor-Ersan be a contender?

No

But after tonight's game it does make me frustrated on all the obvious personnel moves we whiffed on or should have initiated over the last four years. That Bogut for Harden/Ibaka thing from two years ago, even if the Thunder just parted with Harden, which I think they would have easily done back then before they dealt for Perkins. Or Ramon/Potsie for Mike Conley or Ramon for Lee/Gallo or 18 million other moves.

Put Harden and Pau on this team and we are legit contenders. Obvious comment I realize, but not every team could just add those two guys and contend. I think we could.

I went with LRMAM because of how he began and finished the game.

The first half of the first quarter was awesome. He played great defense on Lebron and showed some offense I didn't know he had. His hustle and effort set the tone for this victory.
