An injury slowed him down in January, but ever since his return, Chris Paul has been bound and determined to keep the Clippers in a top spot. Last night, he was up to his usual tricks, chipping in 19 points and 13 assists in LAC's win over New Orleans. Many of Paul's connections were to Jamal Crawford, who had 7 three-pointers on the night. After the game, CP3 had this to say on the Clipper's offensive hot streak as of late: "It's been great and it's just our ball movement. We're getting great looks and at times where playing at the right tempo, but we got to figure out how to keep putting it together."

Around the league, Carmelo Anthony continued his string of offensive explosions with a 44 point showing, but New York was ultimately stopped by Dallas. Other than that, it was a relatively quiet night, but there were plenty of stellar kicks on the hardwood, with adidas being one of the most favored brands of the night. Be sure to hit the gallery above for a full recap.

After a big loss to Duke on Saturday, the newly-ranked No. 4 Syracuse faced another close call, going to the limit against Maryland in a 57-55 win. Elsewhere, No. 5 Kansas picked up a Big 12 win over Oklahoma.
