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.

    I need to drop one of the following in order to Activate Paul from my IR spot. Who would you drop – Jerryd Bayless, Byron Mullens, or Spencer Hawes?

      @Benny: Hawes.

    Start 2 in H2H points league for the short week: Beal (@ Mil, @ Det), Danny Green (@ Chi, @ Cle), or Conley (v SAC)? This week is for 1st place; if Conley is one of my starters, I’m even in games played with my opponent, but if I start Green and Beal I’d have a one-game advantage.

    • Steve Stevenson says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: Looks like the Spurs are resting Ginobili again, at least for today’s game, so I’m definitely starting Green. So now it’s 2 games of Beal vs one good matchup for Conley.

      • ChrisV

        @Steve Stevenson: Conley. Beal may come back slow.

    Hey whats doin!! Do you have any clue about Rose’s return? They said he was doin real good on his recovery so they said at least the allstar break.. Do u think right after break?

    • ChrisV

      ChrisV says:

      @Frank Lynch: Yeah, I think he will be back sooner rather than later.

    I’m playing in a 9 cat league, and I’m having trouble figuring out who to start. Would you sit al jefferson (4 games, playing well -minus the stinker in SAC, help in fg%, reb, pts(?)) for meta world peace (5 games, sligtly strugling, bout to hurt FG%, help with 3s stls)

    me and my opponent match up well, but he has 4 more games over the two week stretch. Maybe play Jefferson, despite having only 4 games since he’ll help my FG% alot??

    what do ya think?

    • Hotrod says:

      @Dollabill: Jefferson. All. Day.

    • ChrisV

      ChrisV says:

      @Dollabill: Agreed. I would not sit Jefferson for MWP.

    Trade question; 12 tm roto league, no % just pts, reb, stl, blk, ftm, 3ptm
    I’m in 3rd, my potential partner is in 5th. My strengths are blk, pts, ftm. My only real deficiencies are stl & 3′s, assist I’m middle if the pack.

    So I need 3′s, assists, stls and boards never hurt anybody. The offer I’m mulling is my gallo & the brow for deng, r. Anderson and Nate Robinson. The loss of blk won’t hurt me and I know robinsons value will be short term, but I’m leaning towards taking it. My only hesitation is how deng & Anderson have been playing for the last month or so (not as good as earlier in the yr), plus how great gallinari has been recently. Davis is an enigma so far but shows flashes of brilliance, so I guess I’m asking would you take the deal? An I selling Davis & gallo short?

    • ChrisV

      ChrisV says:

      I don’t think I would take that trade just because Nate’s value will unfortunately decline when Rose comes back, and that is really the reason to do that deal. I’ve been neutral on Anthony Davis, he has been streaky. if you are looking for steals, there has to be someone on waivers, like Thabo Sefolosha (hmmm!)

    Feel like I’m about to get hosed here…
    My Harden, Pek, and Ariza for
    His Josh, Millsap, and Afflalo

    • ChrisV

      ChrisV says:

      @Mopo: It’s not a bad trade, but I don’t see any real reason to do it (without knowing team and league info).

    What are your thoughts on Eric Gordon? What do you think about my Calderon for Gordon? I already have Rubio, Chris Paul, Lowry, I don’t need any more guards. Will Gordon be able to turn it on?

    • inertiatic says:
      (link)

      @Patrick: FWIW Gordon is also a guard. Plus there’s talk of him mailing it in, trying to get traded and of course the ever present knee/possible injury shutdown candidate. Calderon just went to a much better shituation in DET, and has played pretty well. I think you can get more for him if you’re bent on dealing him away.

    • ChrisV

      ChrisV says:
      (link)

      @Patrick: You should be able to target a Forward if you are giving up Calderon. Assists for Blocks or Rebounds.

      • Patrick says:
        (link)

        @ChrisV: I figure I can get more for Gordon (if he shows up) than I can for Calderon. Jose has been playing well but I can’t see his situation in Detroit being better. Detroit having Stuckey, Will Bynum and Knight will affect Calderon’s value. I see him averaging 13 and 8 assists and a few threes but not much else whereas Gordon is top 20 when healthy. I’m not getting much better offers and I think this is a sell high point for Calderon. Or am I wrong?

        • ChrisV

          ChrisV says:
          (link)

          @Patrick: I actually don’t see his value declining (that’s been predicted since November), but if you want to gamble on a turnaround for Gordon, sure, make the trade.

      • Patrick says:

        @ChrisV: 9 CAT, H2H, Daily, 12 team with a massive bench

    was offered tim duncan+westbrook for my pierce+cousins. do i pull the trigger?

    current roster in a 14man h2h and 5th place in a very tight top 8:
    pg – bledsoe, jennings, isaiah thomas
    sg – harden, iggy
    sf – pierce, green
    pf – ibaka, milsap, bargnani
    c – splitter, cousins

    • ChrisV

      ChrisV says:

      @hamtime: The trade will leave you light at smll fwd and Duncan will probably sit a bunch for the remainder of the season to keep his knee healthy. It’s not a bad trade, I just don’t think it’s optimal.
