Darryl Watkins scored a season-high 13 points with 10 rebounds, one block, and a season-high three steals in 42 minutes off the bench on Thursday.

Greivis Vasquez was moved to a bench role to allow Jerome Dyson to start, and he put up eight points on 3-of-14 shooting with two threes, two steals, and six assists, and Carl Landry scored eight points with three boards in seven minutes.
