New, comments

Miami and Detroit split the top 10 players, but Miami placed their three longest tenured players in the top five.

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

First Star

Andre Drummond (DET) 33.3

Drummond played 39 minutes, and shot a scorching 14-of-17 from the field along with four-of-seven from the free throw line. Along with his 32 points, he added five offensive and nine defensive rebounds, two assists, two blocks, and a steal to finish at plus-1. He didn't turn the ball over, and was whistled for three fouls.

Second Star

Dwyane Wade (MIA) 32.1

Wade scored a season-high 40 points on 14-of-27 shooting, missing his only attempt from outside the rainbow but sinking 12-of-13 from the stripe. He had six rebounds, four assists, one steal, and a plus-7 rating in 35 minutes on the floor, along with one turnover and zero fouls. In short, he looked like the Wade of 2006.

Third Star

Reggie Jackson (DET) 26.0

Detroit's starting point guard was the third player amongst the top three to score at least 30 points in the game, doing so in 36 minutes. He totaled 31 on 12-of-17 shooting, making an efficient three-of-four from outside and a disappointing four-of-eight from the stripe. He also had nine assists and six boards, posting a plus-3 total rating on the night. He turned the ball over four times, with a matching number of fouls.

Fourth Star

Udonis Haslem (MIA) 17.6

Haslem had his best showing in years, with 18 points and 13 rebounds to his credit. He shot eight-of-13 as the starting center, missing a three but making his two foul attempts. Seven of his rebounds were on the offensive glass, and he also added two helpers and a steal to finish at plus-1. He had four fouls and two turnovers in 35 minutes.

Fifth Star

Mario Chalmers (MIA) 11.0

Chalmers spelled both guards in relief, totaling 30 minutes on the night. He scored 11 points on three-of-seven shooting (two-of-six from deep), along with three-of-four from the line. He added nine rebounds and four assists, going plus-1 with a turnover and two fouls.

The Rest

Jodie Meeks (DET) 9.7

James Ennis (MIA) 8.8

Anthony Tolliver (DET) 8.8

Joel Anthony (DET) 5.1

Goran Dragic (MIA) 4.8

Dog of the Night

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (DET) -2.0

Pope started at the two-guard for the Pistons, and led the team with 40 minutes. He scored nine points on four-of-15 shooting, with six missed three-pointers and one-of-two from the stripe. He had four rebounds, along with four fouls and four turnovers.
