Only a hand full of games last night. The Raptors got a triple-double from Jose Calderon as they earned a win over the Houston Rockets. The Denver Nuggets beat the Kings last night. The Hornets, still without first overall pick Anthony Davis lost by a point to the Portland Trailbalzers (who got a 5X5 game from Batum), and the Lakers got a win over the 76ers. Kobe lead all scorers last night with 34 points, and yes, head lead the Lakers in field goals attempted again.

Gotta go with Batum here.... 5X5 games are pretty rare.

0 turnovers for Calderon on 14 assists as well. I didn't watch the game so i can't vouch for his defense but Lin and Douglas only had 12 points on 4/12 shooting.

While Calderon's game is impressive, the 5-by-5 game Batum had is much more difficult and rare, so I really can't believe he isn't taking this by a landslide.

I guess I've been spoiled by watching AK do it in his prime 3 times.

Yeah... a 5X5 hasn't happened since 2006! And has only happened 14 times since 1985!

Here's a list of guys who have done it:

Hakeem has the most with 6, followed by AK47 with 3.

I can't believe anyone that actually watches games wouldn't go Batum, triple doubles are nice but 5x5 is much more difficult.

Gotta be Batum. Do people realize how significant to have the type of game he had?
