Default Andrei Kirilenko with amazing game against Sonics

10 points, 11 assists, 8 rebounds, 4 blocks, 4 steals.

Blocked what would've been a game-tying layup by Durant with 2 seconds to go.

Anyone still think expirers + low picks is a fair trade for him?

That guy throws up some of the weirdest stat lines sometimes.

AK appears to be back indeed. Those are amazing stats. As noted in the game thread, he wasn't stat whoring either.

He has found where the Jazz need him and is filling it in big time.

Boozer has the points with Williams and others, plus rebounds are hard to come by on the Jazz who rebound extrememly well as a team.

AK has racheted up his D, is rotating more often, and is getting his rebs from the offensive end. I used to worry about AK demanding "touches", thinking he just wanted to score. Turns out he is a playmaker at heart. We have all seen the highlight reels of AK passes, but he is more than just a globetrotter pass, he is making plays happen. Totally justified.

He had the best +/- on the Jazz too.

I am much more comfortable with AK running the offense than Hart. I am still at a loss as to how exactly Hart was supposed to be an improvement over Dee Brown.

Me too. I wouldn't use him if I were the Jazz. Kirilenko can do it just fine. What can Hart do that others can't?

Exactly.

That's the second time this seasons his put up a line like that.

10.2 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 6 APG, 1.2 SPG, 2.6 BPG is what he's averaging so far this year.

Because it is really hard?

He is off to a good start this season.

Exactly.

Personally, I don't see why the Jazz don't try CJ at back up point. He can't shoot, but neither can Hart, but he seems to have decent handles. Plus, he knows the system better than Hart.

The way Andrei was making plays tonight was the way i always want him to make plays. He caught the ball around 18 feet from the basket, waited for a player to get open or cut to the basket, and passed them the ball at the right moment. If that's what AK means by "more touches," I'm all for it. His passing skills fit perfectly within the Jazz's system... If the Jazz can get him involved with the offense the same way he was tonight, these type of games will become more common for AK.

Here here!

I just saw the ESPN cover of the game...
As ussual they missed the biggest stories of the game. They didn't even show the replay on the final shot to show the finger nail block.

Ahhh my man AK. So sporadic, but on a good night he's money for my fantasy team.

So for those stats gurus. Has anyone ever had a triple double / 5x5 before?
