Nightly Grades 2.21.13: King LeBron rules again

By Royce Young | NBA writer

Each night, Eye on Basketball brings you what you need to know about the games of the NBA. From great performances to terrible clock management, the report card evaluates and eviscerates the good, the bad and the ugly from the night that was.

LeBron JamesAt this point, it's getting so ridiculous I almost feel like we should quit making a big deal about it. Because it might just be how LeBron is from now on. He went for 26 on 11-15 shooting, added 12 rebounds and seven assists as the Heat pounded the Bulls.
Tony ParkerIt's time we mention his name along with LeBron and Kevin Durant for the MVP. Another stellar night -- 31 points on 12-16 shooting and seven assists -- as his Spurs shredded the Clippers.
That Clippers fanHey, at least one guy wearing a Clipper jersey made something. But his team got worked right in front of him, so he'll have to settle with the new car as consolation.
Chicago BullsYeah, they could definitely use Derrick Rose back. Just 67 points against the Heat and no guy with more than 14 points and three players in double-figures.
Los Angeles ClippersPrimetime Thursday game at home against the top team in the West and the Clippers dropped a total dud. Like the biggest of biggest duds. They trailed by as many as 34 in the second half and never led. They got outclassed, they got whipped, they got smoked by the Spurs.
