T. Miller 1 2 3 as Vancouver 12 3 1, 25 points moved into top spot in the Western Conference.

Hughes 6 20 26 became the first player this season to record five three point outings and established a new franchise record for fewest games to 20 assists, reaching the mark in his 16th contest. The previous mark was 17, something Hughes achieved last season and Henrik Sedin established in 2010 11.
