If I told you I had an Uncle Salvatore and he was eaten by badgers, that would be pretty wild, right? Well, I don’t, and none of my uncles have been consumed by wildlife. A true thing that happened that’s also pretty wild is Klay Thompson‘s amazing night. He mushroomed for 32 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists and 3 blocks. Besides snaking his way around opponents to drive to the hoop, he also nailed 6 of 8 from downtown. His season best performance tops a current hot streak where he is averaging 20+ points over the past week. Not bad for kid, who probably isn’t even old enough to remember early Internet memes.

Andre Drummond – Someone should sing the praises of Andre Drummond. Ahem. “He’s in the middle without any plans, he’s”…what’s that? I already did this bit with J.J. Hickson a month ago? Darn it. Anyway, Drummond scored 18, grabbed 18, threw in an assist, a steal and a block. Can’t someone go 17/17 so I can break out the Winger reference?

Jarrett Jack – Jarrett Jacked off to 26 points, 1 board, 12 assists, a steal, a block and 3 of 4 from beyond the arc. He keeps getting better with each game.

Meyers Leonard – Played 3 minutes to collect 0/0/0/0/0/etc. After 3 games last week with halfway decent minutes and a few points and boards, he went for 1 point/1 rebound in 8 minutes on Sunday, and now this. Meyers, more like goodbyers, am I right? Cue slide whistle.

Monta Ellis – The dude had 24 points, 4 rebounds, 2 dimes, and a whopping 6 steals. Not the Dude, but this dude. Monta. You know him.

Alonzo Gee – Missed all 5 field goal attempts (incluing 2 threes) to finish with 0 points, 4 rebounds, 2 dimes and a steal. He’s averaged 29 minutes over the last 5 games and only managed 5/5/2 during that time, which makes me wonder what he’s doing out there.

Shawn Marion – Hate to talk about him again so soon, but he produced 12 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals. He’s had some crappy performances recently, but he has also had some nice offensive outbursts, which could also describe my bathroom time. over the pst week, he’s averaging 8 rebounds.

Earl Clark – He had an impressive 20 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists. The Lakers are crazy, even by L.A. standards, so you may as well grab Clark if you need a Forward help. He also had 6 turnovers on the night, for what that’s worth (it’s worth 6 turnovers).

Robin Lopez – You may not want to babble about him because he’s no Brook, but Robin still finished with 16 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists an a steal. Of course, it was his best game in 2 weeks.

Ersan Ilyasova – Came back down to Earth a little bit with 9 points, 1 rebound, 3 assists, and 2 steals in 21 minutes. Why the dropoff for the James Franco lookalike? Because you touch yourself at night, that’s why. Also, because the Bucks were crushing the Pistons by the 3rd and there was no reason to run out Milwaukee’s star(ter)s all night.

Wesley Matthews – The good news is he reached 17 points with 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals. He also took 9 three pointers and hit only 3, but if that’s the worst I have to say, it’s a good night. So…let’s try the bad news again. The bad news is, this is his first night in 5 games where he tallied more than 1 rebound. Although, that is sort of good news, too.

Dwight Howard – Here’s your weird line of the night: 24 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, 5 steals and 4 blocks.

    I am able to make a small run at assists and 3pters. The best options on the free agency wire are JJ Barea and Alex Shved (coincidence they play on the same team). Who do you think will help me better with this small run? I am thinking Shved, if he can stay healthy. Hopefully his minutes will go back up to 28 now that he is returning from injury.

      @bauerspeed17: Barea is averaging 1.5 3PM and 5 APG over the last 2 weeks. I have touted Shved before, but I’d run with Barea now rather than see how long it takes Shved to shred again.

        @ChrisV:

        Yeah, Barea is the better option at this moment, although I favored Shved in the past because I thought he’d start w/ Rubio, but I was dead wrong. Barea will get his 25 minutes no matter what. Shved is more of a variable. The upside to Shved is his defensive stats in comparison to JJ. If Shved can go back to 30 minutes then Shved’s the better option.

    H2H pts league, give Pierce and Pek, get B. Lopez and Boozer? I gain about 4ppg in our format, but give up 4 net games (2 in a week I might care about), BUT it’s also my weirdo League Playoffs = NBA Playoffs format, so I gain better playoff keepers.

      @Steve Stevenson:

      Paul Pierce will be the focal point of Boston’s offense now that Rondo is gone so look for him to put up top 2 round #s. Do you have a difference piece to give?

    Not at F, which is where this guy’s need is–my other good F is Bosh, who i want to keep for the playoffs. I agree with you re: Pierce, but in this league you have to overpay some for any decent playoff keepers. I think both Pierce and Pek will be more valuable going forward than they have been, which helps make this a regular season loss for me, but I’ve got a good team and a 3 game lead on a playoff spot, so as long as the drop’s not too great I win come playoff time, where the real money is.

      @Steve Stevenson: If you are looking to make this trade for your weirdo goofball crazy playoff system, then go for it. Normally, I would say not to do this trade, but I think we all agree on this – normally being the key word.

      • Steve Stevenson says:

        @ChrisV: OK thanks. I agree with what to do normally, but this league format is f’ing goofballs. I’m going to lobby for changing it back next year, since what’s been shown so far is that you win by having LeBron, either by spending an exorbitant amount on him in the initial auction (which I never do) and hanging on for a playoff spot with LeBron and scrubs, or getting the 1 seed (which so far I also never do) and taking him first in the playoff draft.

    Trade my Bogut for his Faried?

    • Zandy says:

      @Zandy: Or trade my Bogut for AK47? Would you do either one?

    Do you think singler or magette will be better for the pistons with tayshaun gone?

      @Sean: Singler would be my guess.
