Nightly Grades 2.28.13: Joakim NO-ah

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.

Joakim Noah's scoringJoakim Noah's triple-double started with the scoring. He dominated the paint inside, taking all 12 of his shots in the restricted area and making eight of them. It didn't matter whom the Sixers tried to stick on him to keep him away from the hoop. Noah just worked his way in, dominated the paint and finished with 23 points.
Joakim Noah's reboundingOn a night with a lot of missed shots between two offensively challenged teams, Noah's rebounding was extremely important. He had 21 rebounds, and eight of them were on the offensive boards. This was one of the rare "Spencer Hawes will remember he's tall" nights, so Noah's work on the boards had to neutralize Hawes grabbing 15 rebounds.
Joakim Noah's shot blockingThis was the most fun part of the evening from Noah's performance. Joakim had a career-high 11 blocked shots as he perfectly timed his opponents' attempts and swatted shot after shot away from its intended target. The Sixers shot just 36.3 percent in the restricted area and ended up with only 30 points in the paint.
Chris Paul

Chris Paul's 29 points, eight assists, and six rebounds were simply too much for the Indiana Pacers, especially down the stretch of the game when CP3 put the game away. There really aren't words that can do what he does justice. It's just a typical CP3 destruction of his opponent.

Lakers' 3-point shootingThe Lakers' outside shooting just shredded any semblance of the Wolves' defense on Thursday night. Los Angeles was led by Kobe Bryant's 33 points and four 3-pointers, as the team made 16 of its 32 attempts from beyond the arc. Compare that to Minnesota's 7-of-21 shooting from long distance, and it's easy to see how this got out of hand.
