Don't be shellfish...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

As my good friends at Mr. Show previously theorized, 24 was thought to be the highest number.  “What about 30?!”  And then NBA scorers were pulling exactly what happens in that skit.  “What about 31?”  “What about 32?”  “I gotta ask, what about 33!”  Then Gilbert Arenas was like, “if people keep scoring like this, I’m gonna have to shoot em with Crittenton’s .45!”  It wasn’t necessarily that many guys going off, just a few you wouldn’t have guessed.  I’m trying to pick the most off the rails 30+ point night, so I think I’ll go with Alec Burks, who just looked awful in the two games before last night.  7-25 his past two outings, but goes 12-17 last night for career-highs in both points with 31 and dimes at 7.  Added three boards and four steals with two treys for good measure.  Burks has always looked like a good athlete out there, but never like a guy who could take over like that.  I think a good debate is Burks or Terrence Ross.  I’ll lean Ross, but very close, I just think Burks is too inconsistent.  Here’s what else went down last night in hoops:

LeBron James - 30/9/9 near trip-dub.  30 point outing #2.  Shot 13-17.  Jazz hasn’t been abused this bad since Kanye West experimented with his Duke Ellington sampling (OK, I have no idea if that happened…).

Josh Smith - 30-point game numero tres.  Took him a whopping 29 shots though.  I think I use whopping too much.  The cast of the Jersey Shore might be getting offended.  Whopping is kinda my crutch word for “way too many.”  Smoove with too many labradoodles!  And it’s funny that Smoove went off scoring wise, but only 1 Ast and no steals going against his usual multi-cat-ness.  I guess you don’t like a lot of cats when you channel labradoodles…

Joe Johnson - 30-point game times four.  Hit 10 threes.  Huge 37/7/5 game for JJ owners.  Not much to say except he’s surprised virtually every fantasy player this year (except maybe the Johnson family) filling in a scoring void for all the injuries.

Martell Webster - My former boyfriend!  And another 30-point scorer, doing it in only 13 shots.  You hear that, Smoove?  9-13 (6-8 3PTM 6-7 FT) for 30/5/2 in 36 minutes, ironically the same game Bradley Beal was able to get back on the floor.  Beal looked solid and almost not rusty at all, going 9-16 21/7 himself.  I’m still a nervous Beal owner though with the chronic leg problems…  And not too much to make of Webster, I still think he can be in the low 20-minute range with everyone back, but got extended run last night as he was hot.  But would be a huge add if Beal gets hurt again.

Carmelo Anthony - 6th 30-point scorer.  But not surprising or anything.  You love the 4 blocks though!

Pablo Prigioni - Hurt his toe.  Had to go to the medico.  It’s a hairline fracture, “oh no!”  Beno Udrih worth a PG add though.  Even if he is only so-so.  Should get enough stats in the Knicks flow.

Deron Williams - Had a dimebag with some to spare.  13/13 and looking good.  Every game you’re holding your breath though…  Jean-Luc Godard is particularly breathless…

Andray Blatche – A guy I own on a few teams now.  He’s an easy cut when it goes sour, but another big game for 20/5/1/2/0 shooting 8-12 while Brook Lopez is still hurt.  Blatche is mad inconsistent, but a streamer option in all leagues.

Tony Wroten - Had a tough game, going 13/2/3/3/0 shooting 5-13 with 6 TOs.  I still like Wroten a lot though.  Not giving up until MCW is back.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope - Sure I’m biased throwing him in today’s post, but I loved him heading into the year and like him for the future, and while he’s not really fantasy relevant for most leagues, one of my favorite stats so far this year is KCP has 8 TOs on the SEASON!  Just unbelievable.  Sure he’s a shoot-first guard, but a lot of guys including teammate Brandon Jennings, have 8+ TO GAMES to their credit already!  8 TOs in 568 minutes for a rookie at 0.3 a game.  Love crazy-weird stats.  And while he’s shooting only 36%, at least his basketball IQ on the TO front seems to be fairly high.

Lance Stephenson - Has been unreal.  23/7/6 on 9-14 shooting last night, and certainly not a reason why the Pacers lost.  Danny Granger looms, but so does Granger’s spot in a retirement home.

Paul George - He’s the #5 overall guy on Basketball Monster, he’s elite, don’t worry James, but all I always keep saying is he has inconsistencies at times, and shot only 4-14 last night.  Now he had a sick fantasy line of 17/9/4 with 8-8 FT to help out, but I’m Gus Ayonin’!

Luis Scola - Uber-effective sub-20 minutes, going 8-11 18/4/2.  Can score a little, board a little, playing a consistent 15-20 minutes a night, you could do worse in the deep leagues.

Andre Drummond - Power of the reverse jinx!  I mean, um, fluke game and he’s fantasy’s #1 center!  But for real, got into foul trouble, played only 21 minutes which is an outlier, still went 9/9.  Still managed to kill your FTs shooting 1-6…  I’m so torn, I don’t know if to keep reverse jinxing or not, my emotions are like a 13-year-old girl!

*Guess the Kobe Bryant statline contest!!!” - Winner last night is matt!  Kobe for a terrible 8/3/6/2/0 night (sorry Fantasy Dick) made it close between matt and I, but matt was a little more conservative at 17/6/5/2/0, almost nailing assists and getting steals dead-on while tied with me for lowest points guessed.  But good news is the Lakers play again tonight!  Up against the Grizzlies, so place your bets!  I’ll go 13/4/7/3/0.

Jordan Hill - Looked like he was getting Doh-Toni-ed, but bouncing back a bit and started last night for 21/9 and a block, shooting 8-8 FG and 5-6 FT.  Dammit Hill, how you gonna miss a free throw!  And Kobe got 14 shots?!  Haha.

Xavier Henry - Filled up the stat sheet for 18/6/3/3/0 on 6-14 shooting.  He’s pulling some weird black magic out there with big multi-cat scoring games every-other game starting December first in an 8-game pattern.  Kinda spooky.  If he does bad tonight, then big Friday against the Wolves, I might just believe in the supernatural.  But I don’t believe anything to do with Nick Young.  That’s just stupid.

Jared Sullinger - I’m buying this now.  I was not a big Sullinger guy when he started emerging, a lot had to do with Brad Stevens being a fantasy poopooface, but Sully went 24/11/5 last night and I watched the Celtics beat the Knicks last Friday and he looked friggin’ great out there.  Great vision, I totally buy the assists climbing from a big.  Led the Cs in minutes last night as well.  I’m all in.

Corey Brewer - Proved his allegiance to me in REL.  His first game for Slim after I traded him was a disaster.  I’m still a Brewer fan, but yeah, you can move on in shallower leagues if you haven’t already.

J.J. Barea - Handed out some ganga last night, dub-dubbing at 10/11 with the nice dimebag.  Ricky Rubio played dreadful shooting 2-12 6/5/3 with 2 swipes in 22 minutes.  But every time Adelman benches Rubio late, the Wolves lose.  I’m still amor-ing Rubio (which is like, Spanglish to the n-th degree).

Jimmy Butler - Was huge on Butler heading into the year, but as I said when he got hurt, I thought he was cuttable.  These nagging toe injuries can derail a season.  Sure it’s only one really bad shooting game going 1-11, but a lot of the stats haven’t been there in his three games back.

D.J. Augustin - Has a shot to take over the Bulls PG starting role even when Kirk Hinrich gets back.  Played 37+ minutes last night for 14/8, and while he shot only 5-15, Marquis Teague looked awful and Hinrich was shooting worse pre-back injury.  Augustin played from about 7:00 minutes to go in the first until midway through the fourth without coming out, and even then it was because he had 5 fouls.  Thibodeau and Augustin, sitting in a tree!

Victor Oladipo - Rough night, but it was against the defensive Bulls team and he had two really nifty coast-to-coast drives.  RainbOladipos to come!

Enes Kanter - Effective off the bench for 14/8 shooting 6-11.  Derrick Favors was effective as well going 17/7 shooting 8-12 with two blocks.  You love your bigs when they face Miami and the lazy Brontosaur.

Gordon Hayward/Trey Burke - Brutal brutal games.  Alec Burks apparently had the ball from Space Jam in the locker room pre-game, and sucked out their talent and made himself a Mon-star.

 

Next Game:  I’m not doing NBA tonight, but will be all over MEM @ DAL Wednesday.  Looking forward to seeing another Jon Leuer game and if Brandan Wright can build on his huge debut.  Thanks for stopping by, hopefully your teams gave ya a good start last night!

    This is getting out of hand with my REL adds recently. Jeremy Evans has been a good find. Leuer fell into my lap. But DJ Augustin takes the cake. I believe my words were, “I’ll take the $1 DJ Augustin gamble. Someone should.” Proving that in even the deepest leagues open roster spots are extremely valuable. That might help make up for my failed trade… I kid I’m not worried about Brewer. I’m going to extend your Rubio analysis to Brewer also. I’ll chalk it down as a learning experience for the coach. Just please. Learn from this and play your best defender.

    Alec Burks vs Terrence Ross isn’t too close yet to me. Ross by a goodly amount. This coming for probably the biggest Burks supporter there is. If Burks ever starts then that question gets real interesting. I’m loving my $8 Burks and $6 Ross. Now I’m just waiting for my $3 Hardaway to pay off. It’s coming. No worries.

    BTW If anyone reading this ever has a question @SlimRazzball is a good spot. Best part about this is that Me and JBs conversations are going to be for everyone now. We were all over Teague-Augustin last night. I think this is going to become a trend, twitter pun point!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Slim: Yeah I agree on Brewer, I’m not worried either. Was just funny. I agree I would much rather have Ross, I shoulda clarified that I meant as players given they’re uber-athletic and have great upside, just inconsistent overall play. Give Slim a follow!

      @Frank White: It’s fair, I just don’t know if Sullinger owner will do it, definitely would take Sully

  5. Good morning! I traded Al Jefferson, Faried & Butler for IT2. I know, it sounds like a lot but I wanted to add another PG and Faried is a Denver Nugget and I added Dunleavy this morning. I’ll have two open roster spots once the trade processes and will be looking to fill them. Here’s a sample of what’s out there (and some players I’m interested in) and I would be open to input about who to add:

    Ersan Ilyasova, Greivis Vasquez, Marvin Williams, DeMarre Carroll, Timofey Mozgov, Jordan Farmar, PBev, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Cody Zeller.

    There are also names I could submit waver claims for…

    Derrick Williams, Kosta Koufos (dropped by me w/decreased run), Louis Williams and Al-Farouq Aminu.

    Have a great day everyone!

      @WNWDOTCOM: Morning! Well… afternoon now haha. I love love love IT2 but think Al Jeff is gonna bounce back, but if it fits a need, don’t hate it at all. Plenty of talent out there on the wire. I think all those guys are fairly even, I’d grab who is playing tonight and go day-by-day

  6. justin.g says:

    12 team.9 cat. My weakest are T Ross who is unproven and Tobias who looked great last year but mostly what I’ve been reading states that he will be nowhere near that this year. Any advice how long you prefer to wait on guys to show consistency. Not too much on waivers : DJ Aug, G Ant, Farmar, Pierce, Waiters, Ask, Burks THANKS!

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @justin.g: Not a terrible list of free agents… but that’s not why I had to comment. I’m here because of, “T Ross is unproven”. Absolutely a statement of fact. But it’s because of players like Terrence Ross that I even play this fake basketball game. Watching a guy develop from unproven waiver add to top 50 fantasy stud is incredibly entertaining. Not to mention league winning. Just ask the people who owned Tobias Harris last year. With all that said… Add Pierce… … … I kid, please don’t do that. Ride Ross till the wheels fall off.

      If you ask me how long to wait on a guy? My answer is: Until that question becomes painfully obvious. Another way to say it: Until you think it’s been too long.

      • justin g says:
        (link)

        @Slim: Slim… haha I appreciate the humor and insight! I’m a basketball junkie and always favor drafting/adding players that I enjoy watching (Tobias owner last year too). It’s all about fun factor for the most part but I do like winning too! If T Ross gets Top 50 that would be like winning the Mega Millions in fantasy world! Besides his shot consistency I like his game a lot, just want to be prepared in case of a let down. Dunk contest winner and a good 3pt shooter…. he’s got talent for sure

        Thanks for making me see clearly again..

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @justin.g: Ross I’m giving a long leash to with opportunity. Magic Fs are crowded, I’m avoiding. I think I would grab Burks or Pierce, depending on needs for Tobias. Let someone else have the headache

      • justin g says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: JB…Man yea I don’t know why I even contemplated that T Ross could be droppable within the next couple weeks. He’s got a huge opportunity and has shown the skills so I gotta be patient.

        I scooped Tobias last year which is probably why I’ve been so stubborn on keeping him this year since I drafted him. He HAS to end up the starter tho right? After his first game this year they declared him the starter before announcing that he was re-injured. I’ve had my eye on Pierce but have avoided Burks since I have Burke and Favors. Thanks for the feedback

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @justin g: Has to…? I mean probably but I dunno. Davis would have to be traded and Harris stay healthy a while…. Poor Tobias he was my boy last year

    I traded away Lance Stephenson and Reggie Jackson for Dirk…did I make a mistake?

    • TR says:
      (link)

      @Fahed: not at all. Dirk is an early round guy and unless you’re in a deep league, there are free agents that could easily replace Jackson

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @The Fantasy Dick: I’d say more or less need based. Assuming you don’t need 8-9 boards per game though then I think Ross should destroy all of those guys in overall value. Leuer should lose minutes when Gasol returns and he doesn’t block, steal, or assist well. He’s a streamer in most leagues. Sullinger is playing just fine but has the same issues as Leuer in that he doesn’t do too well with the blocks or steals. I’m going to assume Jordan Hill not George… This is the guy I’d say to get if you need rebounds and blocks more than steals and 3′s. I can’t stand D’Antoni though and I’d rather just go with Terrence Ross then deal with that headache. You have a new twitter follower BTW. Oh joy!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @The Fantasy Dick: Agree Leuer isn’t a long-term add, even though I think he’ll maintain very deep league value, right now I actually go Sullinger given pts/rebs and a few assists, but agree with Slim, depends on team need. You have another follower from me too!

      @matt h: Tough tough tough… I’ve just never been a Lopez guy. And I’m all in on Sully. Sul, Bogut, Lopez, but I’m sure that’s very against the grain

  16. My Paul George for his Isaish Thomas and either Hawes or Markieff.

    My reasoning is I’m rut in the league and looking towards the playoffs. The pacers only play the min 4 games in the championship week. Also, I want to get Isaiah before his value shoots up even more that I can’t get hawes or Markieff potentially. And I want to keep Isiash in our auction keeper league, value $10 compared to George’s $60+.

    Good deal?

    • Moe says:
      (link)

      I would ask more for paul george. You are giving up too much for isiah thomas. Do not get me wrong , I like him. I was able to get him on my team before the trade. I trade d jordan for him. Looking like a good deal for me now.

    Kobe guess: 14/5/11/1/0

    Been trying to move Spencer Hawes out of detrimental-trade fear/paranoia, but absolutely no takers! 6 weeks averaging top 20 production (8 cat) seems to have improved his value from about 13th rounder to 8th rounder or below. Unless I can get someone good in return I may as well just stick with him and hope he keeps producing right?

    More value ROS: Pierce, Joe Johnson, Jimmy Butler, JR Smith, Sweet Lou, Mario Chalmers, Derrick Thrilliams?

    Thanks again, this is my first read every morning!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Prodders: Yeah, I mean it’s like having Felton in the 20-team REL, I can’t get even Brandan Wright for him. So I have to sit on it and just ride it out, same with Hawes. I’ll pick Joe Johnson from those guys. Any time man, thanks so much for reading, good luck with the Kobe line tonight!

      • Prodders says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Keeping Johnson and Butler, giving Farmar a spin cos seems like he has a chance to be their starting PG for a few weeks. Dropped Pierce but still think he’ll be a decent player by the time fantasy playoffs rolls around.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:

    As usual, many trades on the table as of now, even though half of them get withdrawn or vetoed. Ha. Anyways here they are. Just a reminder there no FG or FT %. Just FGM and FTM along with OREB, DREB, and DD.

    1) Marc Gasol for my Klay
    2) Hayward for my Burke
    3) My Westbrook, Cousins, and Klay for Harden (worried about his ankle), MCW (worried about his knee ), and Vucevic
    4) My Westbrook and Cousins for Curry and Millsap
    5) My Burke and Westbrook for Conely and IT2

      @Jake Van Zuiden: Haha curse the people vetoing! 1) like it, Gasol should kill in the format 2) Ehhhh, I really like Burke, I’d still proabbly have to take Gordon though. 3) Would be a huge win if MCW comes out healthy the rest of the year, but that’s a huge if. 3) my favorite. 2) I like this one second best.

      @E: Nahhhh I wouldn’t do that one, I’m a little scared of what role Sanders will have

    Seeing all these Tobias Harris drop makes me think I should hold onto Brewer and drop him instead.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Michael: Eh it’s close but Brewer has a pretty low ceiling and Harris I think is worth the upside

    is there any word on a return date for marc gasol hes a possible buy low in my league?

    • JB Gilpin

      @murfman1989: It’s gonna be very touch and go since he is healing non-surgically, I still think it’ll be next year, but early, and yes worth a buy low esp. if you have IR spot

        @JB Gilpin: cool thanks

    JB would you give up kobe & howard if you could get harden. Or say Conley or B. Jennings & kobe for Harden? He won’t do heads up kobe ( who would blame em) for Harden. Shit in my other league I overpaid just to acquire my black beard crush by paying LA & Vucovic for him & Felton (who I got ZERO) production from and immediately dropped after he went down.. I have to own him in every league! I just have to Dammit!!!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @matt: Yup I would. I like that one a lot more than Conley BJ and Kobe, that one is very close, you get best player bhut crippld G depth. You love the bear so much! The Aldridge one isn’t terrible if you have some bigs to spare!

      • matt says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: no not all 3 for Harden. Either kobe and conley or kobe and Jennings

        • matt says:
          (link)

          @matt: think I might have won the kobe line challenge again :-) I was really close tonight

            @matt: Looks like you’re back-to-back champion on Kobe guessing! I’ll have to double check before tomorrow’s post.Ah gotcha on those offers, yeah I like either one of them for Harden

      • matt says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: I pulled the LA trade a few weeks ago in a different league. And yes, that bear is a consistent 25/6/6/1/1/ almost every gm. I like Harden ALOT!

  25. Jake Van Zuiden says:

    Hey I was really close on my Kobe guess. He had 21/5/4/1/1 with 4 TOs and I said 19/5/5/0/2 with 5 TOs!

    • matt says:
      (link)

      @Jake Van Zuiden: I had 23/3/2/1 we were both right there! I think it’s a push lol

      • JB Gilpin

        @matt: Uh oh it’s gonna be close! I think Jake might have it though

    10 team, 9 cat H2H league and my team is pretty stacked. I’m in second place and just got offered a trade from the first place team… would you accept Jordan Crawford for Henson?

    Here’s my team:
    Parker
    Joe Johnson
    Deng
    Drummond
    Robin Lopez
    Paul George
    Leuer
    Millsap
    Henson
    Burks
    Lowry
    Bargnani
    Amir Johnson
    MCW

    also, would you drop Lopez for Sullinger?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Drew: Nah I wouldn’t, Crawford is a huge sell high with Rondo coming back. And yeah, I’d grab Sullinger, loving his game

      • Drew says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Thanks man! Oh and I’m also tryna get Lillard. I could part ways with Parker and one of my bigs, but would that work? say Parker and Bargnani or something?

        If the other team takes the bait, I’m planning on adding either Valanciunas, Nene, Sanders, Blatche, or Jordan Trill

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Drew: It’s worth offering, but I don’t think he’ll take after the game last night! Would love it for you and adding JV

    I’m trying to pick up Larry Sanders but I need to drop someone. Whos the safer drop Miles Plumlee or JJ Hickson?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @R: I think Plumlee is, he’s been very up and down

  28. Jake Van Zuiden says:
    (link)

    He withdrew the Curry offer right before I hit accept, so I sent him

    Burke, Klay, Cousins, and Westbrook for Curry, Hayward, and Millsap
    This isn’t giving too much is it?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Jake Van Zuiden: Booooo, stupid owner! Mannnnn, that one is close… Coin flip

    Who you rather have Ryan Anderson or Henson?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @matt: Anderson, not too close

      • matt says:
