Who played the most minutes for the Lakers last night? Kobe? Nash? Pau? Nope! It was Earl Clark. During that time, the Earl of Second Chances scored 17 points with 10 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 steals and 2 blocks. He is averaging 10.5 rebounds per game since January 8. I liked him last week, I still like him with Dwight Howard out.

Caron Butler – If you could use some help, why not call your gal pal? Caron earned 18 points, 5 rebounds, 1 steal, and shot 3 of 5 from downtown. Her prior 3 games: 12/8/1, 19/5/1, 12/2/2. Percentage owned: 17%.

Eric Bledsoe – Bledsoe made it rain with 23 points (2 threes), 7 rebounds, 10 assists, 2 steals and a block. I once wrote, “If you can move him for a piece you need, now is a great time.” That was a long time ago…or Friday. It was Friday. I think his value disappears when Chris Paul returns.

Avery Bradley – In 26 minutes, he had 4 points, 1 rebound and 2 assists. Jason Terry played more than 31 minutes and had 13 points (2-4 from deep), 2 rebounds, 6 assists and a steal. Leandro Barbosa saw 20 minutes and went for 14 points, 2 rebounds, an assist and 1 three. Use this as you will.

Pau Gasol – He had 23 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals as Mike D’antoni decided he now has to like Gasol again.

Kyle Singler – He produced 11 points, 6 rebounds, and assist and also hit 2 of 4 from the perimeter. This comes off Friday’s game of 20/8/1/2/3. It might be time to respect his game.

Will Bynum – You know, when this guy gets minutes, he does well. In 29 sub-hour measurements last night, he tallied 18 points, 1 rebound, 10 assists, and a steal.

Mario Chalmers – This guy may be the most frustrating player for fantasy purposes (hyperbole!). Not because anyone drafted him, but because a starter who gets 30 minutes should do better than 2 points (1-6, 0-2 from beyond the arc), 2 rebounds, 5 assists, and 4 steals, although the 4 steals are nice.

Shane Battier – Before the Super Bowl, there was another power outage in the form of Shane. He played nearly 34 minutes for 5 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 blocks. I mean, I know who the Big 3 are (81 combined points), but that doesn’t prevent rebounds and things like that. Of course, Shane averages about 2 boards per game, so 5 is actually a break out performance for him. Meshugannah!

Amir Johnson – Subway has a commercial going on where NBA atheletes try (and fail) to pronounce February. It just goes to show you the value the NCAA provides with their “student”-athletes. Anyway, I hope Amir doesn’t run into the Febhurrartery blues, as last night he only produced 2 points (4 attempts), 7 rebounds (4 offensive), 2 assists, a whopping 5 steals, and 2 blocks. Side note: I think he’ll be fine. He will be my DeMarcus Cousins in the next round of valuations.

Aaron Gray – He scored 6 points but grabbed 12 rebounds (7 offensive). This comes after 12, 11 and 10 rebound performances. Too bad he didn’t notch 13 boards, we could have had something (a pattern originating from coincidence; fun!).

DeMar DeRozan – He notched 27 points thanks in large part to a perfect 14 free throw attempts. He also added 3 rebounds, 3 assists and a three.

    I trade
    Eric Gordon
    Josh Smith
    Kirlenko

    AND I GET
    Melo
    Jameer

    In a league with scoring that you get points for double doubles, points, steals, rebounds, blocks. Do I take it?! I need help big time guys. Thanks !

      @Brandon Halupnik: it isn’t the worst trade. But you’re giving up a ton of blocks. You’re also getting melo at a premium price. If you want to really get melo, pull the trigger, otherwise I’d hold. Jameer is also injury prone . If you can upgrade and get someone better than jameer, I wouldn’t do this trade.

      @Brandon Halupnik: I’m not worried about Jameer like some other people, but it seems like you get extra points for rebounds and blocks, so losing Smith and AK47 could hurt. Melo is having his best year (without double checking), but you have to (obviously) tailor your team towards your league settings.

    Is it time to drop landry fields in a 16 teamer. Most notable FAs are:

    Richardson,Diaw, Pachulia, Marcus Morris, Jamaal Tinsley

    • Zandy says:

      @Pavel: I’d drop Landry but I dont love those FAs… DEEEEEP league it seems. If it’s weekly, Pachulia has the best schedule but maybe Id go Diaw given that situation… Id rather pickup Nicholson or Harkless than whats on the waiver

      • Pavel says:

        @Zandy: haha..I’ve already picked up harkless by dropping markieff morris

      @Pavel: I could see Jason Richardson for points, Jamaal Tinsley for assists.

    Would you trade Marc Gasol for Vucevic and Anthony Davis? Vucevic and Bosh? Bosh and Anthony Davis?

    • Pavel says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: I would do Davis+Bosh. can you help me with my question (right above)?

    • ChrisV

      ChrisV says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: Sure. I like any of those. Davis and Bosh would probably be the best.

    Should I start Ersan Ilyasova or Klay Thompson?

    The extra game Klay plays in this week isn’t a factor because my league averages points out per game.

    • ChrisV

      ChrisV says:

      @Arc Angel: I would roll with Ersan.

    hey Raz,

    I need advice on Rodney Stuckey, I know this guy can produce good numbers but he has been inconsistent all season and I do not know what the pistons plan to do with him. Basically should I drop or keep?

    • Brandon Halupnik says:

      @beantown:
      After a while, you gotta know when to let potential go, sure he has it, but potential is nothing unless it’s used. Get rid of him, better options definitely have to be around….

    Melo for Josh Smith and Kirlenko?! I’m so lost, Melos a beast but J Smith is really playing now, and Kirlenko is trash so I’m good letting him go now, suggestions?!

    • ChrisV

      ChrisV says:
      (link)

      @Brandon Halupnik: Depends what you need. Smith will give you better accessory stats (like steals, blocks, etc).

    I give Amir Johnson and Beasley for Mullens and Earl Clark? Thoughts?

    • ChrisV

      ChrisV says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: So you’re trading two players for two players of the same position? Is there an advantage? Are you looking for a particular stat? I’d be happy keeping Amir and Beas.
