Tayshaun Prince Hits Game Winner
NBACat MVP of the Night: Tayshaun Prince
Tayshaun Prince came up huge for the Pistons tonight. With just 24.3 seconds left in the game, and his team trailing by 1, Prince made a driving left-handed shot to put the Pistons up 1, and they would go on to edge out the Hawks, 86-85. In addition to hitting the game-winning shot, Prince also added 17 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists. And as you can tell from the picture above, he still looks smooth as can be out on the court.

– Rajon Rondo and the Boston Celtics got back into the win column tonight by defeating the Portland TrailBlazers 104-86. Rondo played just 26 minutes in the game (Doc Rivers likes to play his bench) but still added 8 points, 2 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals and just 1 turnover. A full post game recap can be found here.
– Jodie Meeks and the 76ers beat Enes Kanter and the Utah Jazz tonight, 104-91. Even though the 76ers won, it was not a good night for Meeks. Meeks, who recently lost his starting job to Evan Turner, played just 8 minutes (fewest this season) and only scored 2 points. Kanter was on the court even less, playing just 4 minutes, and he failed to score or grab a rebound for the first time this season. Let’s hope these two can start getting more minutes, both deserve it. A full post game recap can be found here.
– Eric Bledsoe and the Los Angeles Clippers beat the San Antonio Spurs tonight, 120-108. Bledsoe played just 6 minutes in the game, missing his only 2 shot attempts. He did have 1 foul. A full post game recap can be found here.
