Ballin: Check out Greivis Vasquez over here with his 25 points, five threes, 10 assists and eight rebounds in the Hornets’ first win after seven straight losses. Nice job, man. (Do not check out his eight turnovers, because that is as gross as when he had a mullet.)

Not so much: Take your pick between player sucking (Raymond Felton going 3-19 with five turnovers in an overtime loss to the Nets), team sucking (the Bobcats were down 40 at halftime, eventually got down by 54 (!) and lost to the Thunder by 45), or team blowing a lead (the Bulls lost to the Bucks after blowing a 27-point lead in 15 minutes) for the worst of the night. I’ll take the Bulls because I am a Bulls fan and therefore very sad about what happened.
