The man with a name that would drive King George VI off his throne in fits of anger, Thabo Sefolosha shot 7 of 11 from the field, including 5 of 7 from the perimeter, to accumulate 20 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists, and 3 steals. This comes off a Friday night performance of 18/2/1 with a steal and 2 blocks. In fact, he had 2 blocks over the past 3 games before coming up empty last night. What does all this mean? It means Thabo hath become a perthon of intereth.
Chris Paul – Even though Yahoo still lists him as injured (Chris PaulINJ) despite having just completed two games back from injury, Paul is, well, back, going for 25 points (3-5 from downtown), 6 boards, 7 assists and a juicy 4 steals.
Raymond Felton – There was quite a scare when Felton got bumped around under the basket and fell to the floor without getting up, but he eventually returned to the game and finished with 20 points, 2 boards, 5 assists and 2 steals.
Antawn Jamison – In nearly 25 minutes, he shot 1-5 (missed both three attempts) to finish with 3 points, 2 rebounds, and an assist. Every time we get excited for a new opportunity for Antawn, he fails to capitalize. That’s just another day in the life of the Lakers.
Mario Chalmers – He had one of his good nights, finishing with 13 points, 4 rebounds, 3 dimes and a block. It’s his second good game in a row, and he’s due for another 1 or 2 more before disappearing for a while.
Andre Iguodala – He managed 5 points, 2 rebounds, 4 assists and a block before leaving in the 3rd quarter with an injury. Not to get dark like a Poliça song, but if he misses some extended time, he will do his owners a favor.
Paul Pierce – He took advantage of tripe over time to earn his second triple-double of the past 2 weeks, reaching 27 points, 14 rebounds, 14 assists and only 4 turnovers. He also nailed 5 of 9 from behind the arc.
Jason Terry – He was right behind Pierce in points, tallying 26, but only contributed 2 boards, an assist and 3 steals. Terry has seen a mild rejuvenation in the absence of Rondo. You know, minus all those assists.
Anthony Davis – Earned 2/6/1 with 2 blocks. This marks his 3rd game with 8 points or less and his 4th game with 7 rebounds or less.
Robin Lopez – He went for 19 points, 4 rebounds and a block. That’s 7 games of double digit points.
Jonas Valanciunas – Reached a double double again (14/10), plus swatted away 2 shots because that’s what big men should do (minus David Lee, if you count him as a big man).
J.J. Hickson – Despite 30 minutes, he did not grab many boards, latching onto 7 rebounds to go with 11 points. You would think he would have gotten more with Damian Lillard missing 15 of 16.
J.J. Redick – In the battle of J.J.s, the Redick reigned with 22 points, 1 rebound, 5 assists and a takeaway.
Mickael Gelabale – He got the start and played 36 minutes, finishing with 14 points, 3 boards, a dime and 2 from downtown. His playing time this month has been wildly inconsistent, so I’m not sure he’s worth adding in any but the deepest of formats.
Alexey Shved – Just when you thought you were done with Shved, he sneaks up behind you and kisses your neck with 10 points, 9 assists, 2 steals and a rebound.
Ed Davis – In 11 minutes (his most this month), he reached 4 points, an assist and a block. Apparently, the Grizzles traded for someone to hand out towels to Randolph and Gasol.
Tiago Splitter – He saw 31 points for 13 points, 9 rebounds, 2 dimes, and a steal. Yup. That’s what he does.
Kris Humphries – With 8 points, 7 rebounds, and an assist in 20 minutes, he saw more time than starter Reggie Evans (1/9/0). Evans is not a scorer. He is a rebounder, and he does it well, but that’s what he does. Maybe K-Hump can work his way back into the starting line up.
Markieff Morris – He led the Suns with 12 points…yeah, that’s right, he was the only guy with double digit points. He also added 4 rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block. His usual production is about 5 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, a steal and a block. In other words, a complimentary piece in deeper leagues.
Patrick Patterson – Pat-Pat shat-shat for 18 points, 6 boards, 2 dimes and 2 threes. If you need a guy who can give you points, he’s been getting the ball through the rim with a fairly good pace in February averaging 17 points over the last 5 games.
Isaiah Thomas – Thanks to a perfect 13 shots from the free throw line, Thomas wrapped up the night with a team high 23 points, plus 1 board, 6 assists and 2 steals. On Saturday, he reached 25 points, and the game before that, 17. Maybe he’ll stay hot for a while. Maybe you want to add him. That’s not for me to say.
