With the NBA All-Star Game just ten days away, teams are looking to make their final push before the mid-season break. Last night’s action featured some of the league’s best, including LeBron James, Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant, and more.

In Los Angeles, the Chris Paul-less Clippers played host to LeBron and the Miami Heat. Despite a huge 45 point, 15 rebound showing from Blake Griffin, the Heat were able to take command at the end with a 116-112 win. LeBron had quite a game himself, with 31 points, 12 assists, and 8 rebounds as he wore a vibrant “Fairfax” edition of the Nike Zoom Soldier VII. In fact, the entire Heat roster was in go-mode last night, with 7 players hitting double figures in scoring.

Jeff Green (pictured) got the job done for Boston with 36 points and 8 boards in their 114-108 routing of the 76ers. Elsewhere around the league, veterans like Dwight Howard and Tim Duncan continued to impress with 30+ showings. In Cleveland, the Cavs picked up a loss against the Lakers, but Dion Waiters still turned heads with his kicks. Be sure to hit the slides to see what Waiters and the rest of the night’s top players wore.

Catch up on all this and the night’s best NCAA men’s hoops after the jump.
