New, comments

Who were the standouts last night? If you were watching, you'd probably think that it was probably all Miami. Using the gamescore metric available at www.basketball-reference.com, we can rank the top five performers of the game.

Mitchell Leff

First Star

Chris Bosh - 25.9

For the second time in as many games, Bosh earned the first star. He started out hot and didn't slow down, scoring a game-high 30 points on nine-of-17 shooting, including two-of-five from outside. He also sunk 10-of-11 free throws, grabbed a team-best eight rebounds (three offensive), made four assists and two steals, and turned the ball over three times with two personal fouls. He finished with a plus-10 rating in a team-high 33 minutes on the court.

Second Star

Tony Wroten - 19.7

Wroten was the best player on the 76ers, leading his team with 33 minutes on the floor, 21 points (on six-of-11 shooting) and with 10 assists. He also hit one-of-four three-pointers, eight-of-11 free throws, grabbed three rebounds and one steal, blocked one shot, turned the ball over four times, made one personal foul, and finished the game at minus-11

Third Star

Mario Chalmers - 18.1

Chalmers was huge for the Heat off the bench, playing for 25 minutes and scoring 20 points on six-of-nine shooting. He drained both of his deep shots and six of his 10 free throw attempts, posted a game-best plus-18 rating, collected two rebounds, four assists, and four steals. He had zero turnovers and one personal foul. His performance was in stark contrast to the season opener, when he was nearly a non-factor.

Fourth Star

Luol Deng - 14.1

Deng played 29 minutes for the Heat, scoring 15 points on seven-of-11 shooting. He missed his only foul shot, and drained one-of-three from beyond the arc. He had two rebounds on each end of the floor, with two assists and two steals with one turnover and a plus-4 rating.

Fifth Star

Brandon Davies - 13.8

Davies sunk his first seven shots off the bench for the 76ers, playing just under 24 minutes in total. He ended with a seven-for-nine shooting performance, and made one of his two three pointers. He made three-of-four foul shots, and had three rebounds, three steals, three turnovers, and three personal fouls.
