Basketball: A 308-point night for the Pac-10

Ex-Cal star Ryan Anderson scored 14 points off the bench, helping the Orlando Magic to a 111-96 rout of Indiana.

After hardly playing in November and December, Anderson is averaging 15.0 ppg over 13 games in January, including 12 double-digit performances. 

He wasn’t the only productive Pac-10 alum on Wednesday:

— Kevin Love (UCLA) had 31 points and 21 rebounds in Minnesota’s 118-117 overtime loss to Oklahoma City. (Who knew Love would be this good?)  The Thunder got 16 points and eight assists from Russell Westbrook (UCLA).

— Andre Iguodala (Arizona) and Jrue Holiday (UCLA) each scored 15 points in Philly’s 107-94 win over Toronto, which got 29 from DeMar DeRozan (USC).

— Elsewhere, Darren Collins (UCLA) scored 21 points for Indiana, Trevor Ariza (UCLA) 19 for New Orleans, Brook Lopez (Stanford) 17 for New Jersey, Arron Afflalo (UCLA) 17 for Denver,  Aaron Brooks (Oregon) 16 for Houston, Baron Davis (UCLA) 14 for the Clippers,  Richard Jefferson (Arizona) 14 for San Antonio, James Harden (ASU) 13 for OK City, Channing Frye (Arizona) 12 for Phoenix, Luke Ridnour (Oregon) 12 for Minnesota.

Altogether, ex-Pac-10 players totaled 308 points in NBA play Wednesday night.

Seems like a lot.
