There really isn’t an obvious one today. Tyronn Lue won the game for Atlanta, but Joe Johnson got them there. The Pistons and Raptors each had a handful of winning contributions in their games. I thought about splitting it between the Raptors PGs, but that would take away from what Bosh did.

So, the Player of the D.A.Y. is Joe Johnson. Snubbed from the All-Star team, he went up against a team that had two all-stars and was the best player on the floor. 49 minutes, 12 of 23 shooting including 4 of 6 from three on his way to 37 and 8. So what if Lue hit the game winner.
