I try not to use the same player twice as the lede for this post. You’d think with over 300 players in the NBA, that wouldn’t be a problem. Unfortunately, teams do not play every day and most of the players are not worthy. Sure, I could write up Nik Stauskas and how he didn’t score, rebound, assist, steal, or block in eight minutes of run. I could go into detail how he turned the ball over twice and picked up a personal foul, but even Momma Stauskas would be like, “I had to pause the curling match for this crap?” So, as much as I try not to use the same player for the lede, sometimes a performance is just too good. Last Wednesday, Devin Booker was The Razzballer after he dropped 33 points on the hapless Bulls. That was nothing compared to what he did to the Philadelphia 76ers:

Booker started the game shooting 1-for-8. So, according to my handy dandy desktop abacus, he shot .666 the rest of the way. Ahhhh, the Devil lives!

The Wells Fargo Center used to be located at 3601 Broad St, Philadelphia, PA 19148. You can now just input 46 Booker St, Philadelphia, PA 00100 into your GPS from now on.

Tyler Ulis

 12 1 12 0 0 1 1/3 4/10 3/4

Played 37 minutes while Mike James only received five minutes of run. For those that picked Ulis over James earlier in the season…..congratulations! You chose wisely.

Marquese Chriss

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
3 6 2 0 2 0 0/2 1/5 1/2

Played 23 minutes, but that’s not why I’m writing him up. I finally had a chance to watch him play yesterday and….the first shot from the top of the arc…..was drilled straight into the backboard juuuuuuuuuust a bit wide. Jesus Chriss!

Tyson Chandler played 37 minutes while Greg Monroe DNP. Alex Len played 11 minutes. The center position is a true shituation. I feel like I’m watching a street hustler perform the shell game, except he’s tricking himself.

Josh Jackson played 23 minutes.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
7 3 0 2 0 3 1/2 2/8 2/3

He can’t shoot, but you can see the athleticism. Hmmm, sounds like Chriss. I wonder if they play bizarro H.O.R.S.E at practice. “Dude, that was a helluva brick. I can totally top that garbage.” CLANG! BANG! BONG!

Ben Simmons

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 20 8 7 6 0 3 0 9/18 2/2

Have you ever watched handball? Not playground handball, but Olympic handball. Watching Simmons play basketball makes me think he’d be an amazing handball player. He’s so long and can jump so far that he could jump behind the line and be right in front of the goal to shoot. That gets me to think that at some point coaches will draw up handball plays for the NBA. Think about this. Run some screens at the top of the arc so that Simmons can dribble around them, pick up steam, then jump behind the three point line and finger roll a layup in the key. The layup would be worth three points because he jumped from behind the line. Philadelphia, I’m available for hire.

Robert Covington

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 10 6 5 1 1 3 2/10 3/13 2/2

Lord Covington strolls around the court like he has diplomatic immunity. Jacks up shots whenever he wants and performs thievery with no fear of repurcussion. His defense will always keep him on the court and he contributes across the board. He’s a top 25 player for a reason.

With TJ McConnell out, Jerryd Bayless played 22 minutes, and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot played 26 minutes. Don’t go chasing waterfalls.

The Jazz beat the Wizards 116-69.

Otto Porter led the Wizards with 14 points, while Markieff Morris, Bradley Beal, and Kelly Oubre Jr. all scored 11 points. That’s all the Wizards deserve in this blurb.

Rudy Gobert returned from injury and played 21 minutes.

Rodney Hood out. Shocker. Alec Burks balls the F out. Ho hum.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
27 5 3 1 0 0 3/5 9/13 6/6

That’s three straight games that Burks has scored over 20 points. He’s shooting a ridiculous 64% from the field. Where’s Rodney? He’s silently being transported to a Public Storage in the Hood somewhere. Now, the question that must be asked: Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? The one thing I learned at the craps table is that you keep pressing and parlaying because you never know.

Ricky Rubio

Donovan Mitchell

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 21 3 2 0 0 3 3/6 8/13 2/2

Mitchell’s awesomeness has neutered Rubio. Maybe that’s why he transformed himself into a White Walker over the offseason. He knew that Mitchell was coming.

Reggie Jackson

27 4 3 1 0 3 2/4 12/21 1/4

I’m sorry Ms. Jackson that I ever thought that Ish Smith (14 minutes) would overtake your son.

Avery Bradley

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 3 1 4 0 0 2 0/4 1/9 1/1

He’s been terrible recently, but I’m not too worried. We knew the rebound numbers would come down from the ridiculous 6.1 he grabbed last season. Outside of that, the rest of the numbers are pretty much in line. Scoop him up if available.

Stanley Johnson

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 14 10 1 2 0 0 1/3 4/10 5/7

Played 30 minutes. We know by now that SVG loves Johnson so……I’d keep an eye on him, like “just put Hot Pockets into the microwave” eye on him. Let’s not forget that he’s only 21 years old.

With Kyle Anderson out, Rudy Gay got the start and played 32 minutes.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
12 10 4 0 2 0 1/3 5/12 1/1

Rudy! Rudy! Rudy! Maybe I should’ve just dedicated this post to all the Rudys of the world.

Anderson is out for a few weeks and we have no idea when Kawhi Leonard is returning, so Rudy should get the bulk of the minutes. Just be aware of the occasional Spurs Siestas.

Danny Green

11 6 3 0 3 2 3/6 4/9 0

Atta boy, Danny! Green is very inconsistent, but has the ability to contribute across the board. Reminds me of eating at Denny’s.

Wilson Chandler returned to action, got the start at small forward, and played 27 minutes.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 4 7 3 0 0 1 0/4 1/11 2/2

The line looks ugly, but it’s good to see him hoisting up shots. Shooters shoot baby! With Millsap and Jokic out, Chandler should get plenty of run.

Will Barton played 41 minutes.

 23 8 6 1 0 0 4/6 9/20 1/3

Talk about shooters shooting. The 20 attempts were a team-high. Barton may be a bench guy, but in name only.

Gary Harris

I feel like Harris has been kind of disappointing this season, but he’s a top 40 player.

Harrison Barnes

My boo. I think as the season progresses, both the shooting efficiency and assists will increase.

Seriously, why does Maximilian Kleber get the start every game and play minutes? I was joking about Abby Carlisle having influence over this situation, but now I’m beginning to think it’s reality. Anyone else have any theories?

Steph Curry

Golden Curry. Mmm, mmm good.

With Zaza Pachulia out, Javale McGee got the start and played 11 minutes. Jordan Bell played 12 minutes. It’s been said that Kerr wants to get Bell more minutes, but it looks like he’s only going to get substantial run if Green is out. He has a ton of potential, though, so keep an eye on his usage, like “look in rear view mirror when driving” eye.

Jrue Holiday

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 34 6 4 1 0 3 4/11 13/21 4/5

The 34 points tied a season-high. Jrue has the capacity for monster games, but more often than not, he lives in the land of mediocrity. It’s possible that this could be a NWO with AD out, but Rondo and Cousins are such usage monsters that I’d fade that notion. With that said, Jrue is a top 75 player.

E’Twaun Moore got the start at small forward and played 38 minutes.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
27 6 2 1 0 5 5/6 11/18 0/1

Moore please! 52% from the field and 42% from downtown on the season. With Cousins, Rondo, and Holiday garnering much of the attention from defenses, Moore will get plenty of open looks.

Darius Miller

 9 2 1 0 1 2 2/6 3/8 1/1

Three point specialist that is shooting 48% from downtown on the year. He’s played 34, 34, and 28 minutes the last three games and attempted eight shots in each.

Dante Cunningham got the start at power forward with AD out. He played 32 minutes.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT

Can a KAT be an alpha? I’d chalk this game to Marc Gasol defense, which is really good. On the season, there has only been two other games in which KAT had fewer than 10 shot attempts. He’ll be fine.

With Mike Conley out, Tyreke Evans continues to start at point guard. He played 33 minutes.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
 16 5 9 1 3 3 2/4 6/14 2/2

Can Reke hold up the whole season with this workload? He’s on a one-year deal, so I guess the Grizzlies are going with the “use em, abuse em” strategy. Reke has played more than 61 games in a season just twice in his eight year career. If you can get a top 50 player, I’d look to sell. His value won’t get much higher than it is. I’ll be honest, he’s beginning to scare me.

JaMychal Green

He did all that in 23 minutes. Ladies and gentlemen, your 2017 Chicago Bulls. Love was in the air, but not literally, because we all know that white men can’t jump. I know I say the same joke everytime, but I just can’t help myself.

There have been plenty of times when I’ve travelled to a different city and looked for restaurants on Yelp. I’ll find one with nice pictures, but the reviews are all over the map. Some are excellent, while others are terrible. That is the Jeff Green experience.

David Nwaba played 16 minutes. Denzel Valentine played 30 minutes, but could begin to cede minutes to Nwaba. Keep an eye on this situation, like a “gazelle drinking from a watering hole and looking for predators” eye.

A pretty impressive terrible performance by Henson. Or was it terribly impressive? I’ll use the English is my second language excuse, even though it’s my first. Anyways, Henson played 21 minutes and Thon Maker only eight, so Henson is still the guy. Unfortunately, G is a freak of nature and can play center as well.

The Magic had six players score in double figures. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (11), Dwight Howard (12), Walker (29), Batum (11), Frank Kaminsky (14), and Jeremy Lamb (12). The Magic are 23rd in defensive efficiency. Moral of the story? It’s probably a good idea to stream against them.

    Hey Son nice recap today! I have question on my pick ups this weekend. I picked up Alex Burks and Jordan Bell. Burke was great again last night but Bell was a flop with only 12 minutes played which was even more surprising with Zara out. I don’t have the patience for inconsistent performances never mind playing time! So I dropped Bell last night for Gallinari. Speaking of inconsistency, do you like Gallinari, Josh Richardson, Jamaal Murray, Tyler Ulis, Larry Nance , Jarrett Allen or Jordan Bell more? Could you give me your favorite short term add and your favorite long term add for after New Years? Thanks!

      @TT: I think so. I’m not sure Teodosic is going to be some sort of savior. He’s old, doesn’t play D, is coming off a plantar fasciitis injury (which is no joke), and is behind the coach’s son.

      @TT: If you’re good with big man stats, I’d drop Henson for Teodosic….but that’s just me…burned by Henson too many years in a row

    Hey Son! Who has potentially the highest value ROS, Jarrett Allen or Jonathan Isaac? I think I’m leaning toward Isaac… If he was already averaging 21 min before Ross got injured, he should be getting closer to 28/30 without Ross, no? Also, seems like Allen’s FT% is a bit spotty. Thoughts? Thanks.

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @Don: I actually like Allen, as he has a clearer path to being a starter. I have some concerns with Isaac’s game: shooting and physicality. I think it’s very unlikely he gets close to 30 minutes a game. With that said, he does have potential, so if you believe in him, go get him

      • Don says:
        (link)

        @Son: You’re right, Allen definitely has a clearer path to min. Allen is currently shooting 71% from the FT line. Do you think he can maintain that or is he a punt FT% kind of player? Thanks again!

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          @Don: Probably punt FT

    • Brent

      Brent says:
      (link)

      @Don: Allen is the safest. Isaac has the higher ceiling IMO

    Aye-o Son!! Aside from the information that people can get from it, you never fail to make my ass laugh with your hilarious right-ups ROFL! Thank God for providing his SON !!
    Anyhow, just like to know if I could make some adjustments with my line-up as of now. Prince and Bradley seemed to be cold lately which hurts me a lot.

    16 man h2h 9 cat league

    Line-up : Joker, Dray, Al, Myles, Boo, DMitch, AveBrad, Marcus M, JSimmons, Prince, Ghostface. Dieng

    Lacks reb/blks lately

    Notable FAs: Danny Green, Chriss, Portis, Bell, Bembry, Siakam
    Injured: Dedmon, Isaac, T. Ross

    What can you say about Dwight Powell? He’s been good lately, I also have a feeling that sometime this season, he’ll be taking over a starter pos.

    Thanks Son!

    • Son

      Son says:

      @Renz: Aye-o!!! Much appreciated Renz. I enjoy writing these, so I’m glad you enjoy reading em.

      I think I like Siakam the best.

      As for Dwight Powell, it’s worth the shot. You may be right on him starting but Carlisle loves Dirk and Kleber so….you know my theory on Maximilian so that’s going to be an impossible obstacle to overcome

      • Renz says:

        @Son:

        You deserve lots of credits for the great work, really! ‘Jesus Chriss’ ‘Dieng it!’ those are some punts that really made my laugh hahaha!

        Alright. If you were to drop choose on who to drop between Dieng and Ghostface, who would it be? I’m really torn on Bradley and Prince right now.. Hopefully they’ll start to pick themselves again lol.

        I’ll give him another game perhaps and see if he will do well again cause honestly, he’s been consistent and the minutes aren’t going down anytime soon.

        Just came in, LaVine has been dropped by an impatient owner it is because LaVine won’t return until January, any thoughts on this?

      @Renz: Ha! Thanks Renz! Spread the word and/or build a bot that auto clicks.

      Dieng for me.

      I think Bradley will be fine. He has a proven track record. I still like Prince but he’s young so you never know.

      As for LaVine, I haven’t been a huge fan since the offseason. It’s primarily due to the injury, especially for a player that relies so much on hops and explosiveness. It takes time to recover and it’s in the best interest of the Bulls to take it easy with hm.

      • Renz says:
        (link)

        @Son:

        I’m not sure if I could share this to the people within my league hahaha! Kidding aside, yes, I would be glad to spread the word of Son!! Which makes me a disciple of Son then? LOL

        Alright. Noted of that!

        Hopefully, I will badly needing him for the next weeks as I’ll be facing tough teams. Maybe another 2-3 weeks and if he doesn’t improve, I’ll see if there are better options.

        Good point, I really like hearing opinions like this. I am being enlightened. Ha!

        Thank you so much and have a good day/night, Son sama!

    On this team, what do you think about cutting Greg Monroe for Jarett Allen?
    Should I look at cutting Buddy Hield to make room for Shaun Livingston?
    Who should I cut for Kawhi?
    Peace!

    • Son

      Son says:

      @Big-D: I wouldn’t cut Monroe for Allen….yet. I’d cut Buddy for Shaun. No need to cut anyone for Kawhi yet.

          @Big-D: I feel you Big-D. We all have those players. I just hate the situation in Sac because there’s no direction, so I have a negative disposition toward Buddy. With that said, there’s upside, no doubt. If you believe in the player, stay strong.

    would you drop lavine for these players : w.chandler, danny green, marcus morris ,crowder, MKG or keep until January ??

    Hi Son,
    Always appreciate your work
    Who do you think has more value rest of season, levert or taurean prince?
    Prince was a big sleeper of mine and I have him on my team but with his poor play and leverts big recent game, it’s tempting to make the swap

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @Mike: Thanks Mike! Yeah, that’s a tough one. I’ve been high on Prince as well, so I still believe and am staying strong. He’s still young. I’m keeping an eye on minutes or role change. With that said, I wouldn’t blame you for going with LeVert. He’d have to hurdle a few guys to carve out a significant role, though.
