“Did you coach the Celtics to a win last night, B-Rad?!”  “No…  But I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night!”

Since returning from his bad ankle sprain, Marcus Smart has had quite the timeline.  Returned last Wednesday and played five minutes, and Stevens said he didn’t look ready.  And when you’re not ready, you get demoted to the D-League.  And when you shoot 1-12 FG in that D-League game, you still get a promotion.  I want to work for that company!  Any time you get reprimanded, you just have to explain why you’re currently better than 1-12!  Then DNP Friday, and 8 minutes of nada Sunday.  So of course, everyone expected that he’d play 35 minutes and go 23/4/5/1/0 shooting 7-14 FG (4-8 3PTM, 5-5 FT) without a single TO last night.  And everyone expected Rajon Rondo, off a triple-double, to be benched in favor of Smart down the stretch and for both the overtimes.  Well, the Celtics did almost upset the Wiz at home!  Key word… almost.  And sure, Boston had a big 4th quarter with the subs to make it a game, but an L is an L!  Rondo owners collectively throw things at their computers – no one is safe from a Stevens line-up bamboozle.  Before you run out and grab Smart, consider that timeline this past week.  And don’t forget before last night he was shooting sub-30% FG and 21.4% from deep with only 1.1 dimes a game.  Given some of those were in low-minute spells, but it was still only 8 dimes in 114 minutes to 6 TO.  So don’t pull a Stevens and feel like the smartest one in the room by dropping, well virtually anyone in a 12 or 14 teamer for him, unless you plan to stash.  Rondo could still be moved, but I never bet on a trade.  It’s like betting on a successful hostage trade in an action movie.  They never work out!  Here’s what else went down last night in fantasy basketball action:

Kelly Olynyk Another benefactor of Stevens going with reserves.  At halftime, Stevens was like “I’ve got reserves!”  19/11/3/4/1 hitting a trey and 6-6 FT.  Erstwhile “starter” Tyler Zeller for 10/5/1/2/0.  41 minutes for Kelly, only 22 for Z.  Along with that, +20 for Olynyk to -20 for Zeller in +/-.  I don’t feel great about picking one or the other, but sliding back to Olynyk gun to my head.  I mean, it’s a coin flip and a mess.  New band name!

Evan Turner Ello Poppet!  Mrs. Turner for 18/6/8/2/1 in 39 2OT-fueled minutes shooting 8-13 and 2-2 treys.  Including the shot of the night!  Lemony Snicket’s Fortunate Series of Events there!  As was this line as a whole.  Nahhhhh.

John Wall Moves into my top 5 of favorite NBA players after last night.  Not only do the numbers do some big talkin’ (26/17/9/0/0 on 10-17 shooting), but his post-game and who he dedicated the game too…  Just great to see.

Rasual Butler – Well, back to usual for Rasual!  7/3/0/1/2 with 2 TO and only one trey.  Still, most minutes off the Wizards bench… I’m still holding on.

Kris Humphries – Nene had two low-minute games off the plantar fascitis issue, and was a late-scratch with a bum knee last night.  Ruh roh!  If Humphries isn’t owned in your 12er, be sure he is now!  17/9/0/2/1.  Sure double-OT helped boost the minutes to 43, but he’s going to hold onto this starting role for a good long while.

Al Horford There we go!  25/8/3/1/3, and while his value is still not too high for me, great to see an outburst.  Still only 8 boards, and had 4 of those very, very early.  Like first 3 minutes.  Might actually be a good sell-high game, if there’s any “sell-highing” to be done.

Paul Millsap Oh no!  FT% sapping from the Sapper!  3-9 FT… but still got a rainbow for 7/8/2/2/2.  Even when it’s off, it’s on!

David West – Ewwwwww.  8/4/3/0/0 with 2 TO in 24 laughable minutes.  Into the West is about to need a mini-series sequel called Dropping Him Back to the Wire.

Solomon Hill Steady as she blows!  5/7/6/2/0 in a team leading 33 minutes.  Actually no one else got to 28.  It’s low-ceiling, but usable!

Rodney Stuckey – Same as Hill, low ceiling, but high-baby momma talent!  15/4/3/1/0 hitting a trey.  George Hill is still a few weeks away.  Which means he’s not even giving us a Two Weeks Notice… Starring Sandra Bullock.

Mirza Teletovic – Whew, got attacked by a rabid dog this game!  Suffered a hip pointer and needed four stitches to da face!  The hip pointer could cost him time, which means…

Mason Plumlee …for even as bad as he’s been, just HAS to play minutes now.  Only 19 minutes for a terrible 9/3/1/0/0 line shooting 4-8 FG and 1-4 FT last night.  Well, the FT won’t change, but maybe the kick in the pants that he just HAS to play minutes will kickstart something.  Let’s start a kickstarter campaign for Plumlee to play better!

Jerome Jordan – Also in the mix, and put up a near-rainbow of 12/3/2/1/1 shooting 6-8 FG in 26 minutes.  Man, the Nets depth up front is like the frontcourt of the high school team from that village from Willow.  Not in size, but in depth!  I mean, why wouldn’t those Willow warriors keep going with him…  Pansies.  I almost chose my own finger!

Dion Waiters Points explosion!  26/1/4/2/1 with no TO shooting 11-21.   It’s like being a high school player hopped up on Red Bull playing a YMCA pickup game on senior Sunday.  “You’re not over 60!”

Tristan Thompson The conundrum!  Back-to-back dubdubs, plus a near rainbow last night of 14/12/1/2/2.  29 minutes of playing against that Willow backcourt.  I think even I could’ve gotten close to a dubdub in that game, I’ve got some height!

Darrell Arthur I hate him in real life for that cheap shot earlier in the year, and I don’t like him much more in fantasy.  But I like him over Thompson!  12/13/2/1/1 and even though he’s 0-10 from deep the past 4, will chip in some threes here and there.

Arron Afflalo – Double the R and double the F, and whatdaya get?!  Truffler!  Ummm, remuffler?  25/6/3/0/0 hitting four treys shooting a mad-efficient 9-14 FG.  Refluffer!  All those sound like inappropriate words…

Lou Williams Sweet Lou!  26/3/1/0/1 with three treys and that high, high volume FT%.  9-10 last night, and now 51-55 from the line the past 9 games, including a 0-0 FT in there.

Patrick Patterson Look at those sweet, sweet minutes!  Such sweetness in TOR!  19/8/2/0/1 shooting 7-11 FG and 5-7 3PTM.  All in 39 monster minutes, helped out by a little OT time.

Greivis Vasquez – Rainbow alert!  The Twerp for 9/5/2/2/2.  The dimes I think are a little overrated – finally went down a little bit this game – but he’s certainly usable in all leagues while starting.

Jonas Valanciunas His luminescence is creeping into my dark place!  [whoa, note to self, reword that]  18/12 with 4 swats, and first dubdub in 3 weeks.  I care about this big game about as much as Taken 3, which I just saw a trailer for while writing.  Seriously?  How many things can get Taken?!

#OccupyDraymondGreen – Sheesh, it just doesn’t stop erupting!  10/10/3/3/2 in another rainbow, even though his shot was off for 3-10 FG with no 3PTM.  So hard to complain about anything, just #Occupy and #Dominate!

Andrew Bogut – Ohhhhhhh no.  Came out before 3 minutes of play with knee soreness.  Collective Razzball Nation sigh…  I’d be surprised if he plays the next game or two, even though it’s not considered serious at this point.

David Lee – Should be back as soon as tomorrow for Golden State’s next game.  Beer-battered GS big men!  Tough to tell at 18-2!  If he’s Lee’s still out, it might be a monster Wednesday for the ace of Speights!  If you have a pretty open streaming spot, Marreese Speights should be a solid stream in that one.

Zach LaVine His %s are internecine!  9/4/8/3/0 is solid and all, but 4-16 FG and 6 TO.  Tough matchup against Stephen Curry though… Flip should see no reason to rush Mo Williams back into action whenever his back heals up, so ride LaVine as he takes your %s down the latrine!

Corey Brewer – Another big game of thievery.  5 steals and should be owned in most leagues these days.  Gotta rack up the petty larceny!

Nik Stauskas What in the?!?!?!  30 minutes out of absolutely nowhere, going 15/8/1/1/0.  Hit a couple treys, and kept Ben McLemore down to 18 minutes as the two allocated all the 48 SG minutes.  Makes me not want to trust McLemore any more!  I’d give him a tad more leash in deeper leagues, but yikes.  Weird shake-up Monday!

Jason Thompson – 10/9/3/0/0 in very “meh” play, with Reggie Evans going for 6/13/1/1/0.  DeMarcus Cousins is now rumored to be out until 2015…  All we want for Christmas is Boogie back!  Thompson and Evans should be usable in deep leagues for a good while.

Alec Burks 30 and a half minutes, looking solid off the shoulder injury.  16/4/3/2/0 on 5-11 FG, and playing aggressive with 6-9 FT.  I was scared while it lingered and with all the surgery talk, but feel free to grab him again!

Blake Griffin Whoa, maybe he should beat up dudes in nightclubs more often!  After another round of details came out from that mess in Vegas in the preseason, BG goes for 45/8/2/1/0 shooting 14-24 FG (2-2 3PTM, 15-17 FT) last night in another OT game.  No one wanted to win in regulation last night!  Meh, good scorers have good games.  Just when you go out to have a beer with him, don’t call him fat in those jeans!

Eric Bledsoe Line of the night!  Saving the best for last.  27/11/16/2/2 in a rainbow shooting 8-16 FG (2-6 3PTM, 9-9 FT).  Suns performance of the year!  Andddddd, still in an L.  Former team motivation!  Between Blake needing to slap more people and Bledsoe owning his former teams, we really need more NBA motivational coaches!

 

Streamers/Cheap DraftKings Picks:

Chris Kaman (18% owned) – Even though Andre Drummond is beastly, and Josh Smith can rack up defensive stats, the Pistons interior D is inconsistent at best, and I have a feeling POR runs away with this one.  Well, so would Vegas oddmakers, who have the spread at +49.

Gal Mekel (0% owned) – Super deep league alert!  10 dimes through his first two games and the clear-cut backup PG for the Pels, who should rockem sockem robots the Knicks at home tonight.  Garbage time!  Another 5-6 assists for deep leaguers needing a boost there can find him literally everywhere.  Turn to the left.  Now to the right.  One of the direction you looked – there’s Gal Mekel!

 

I hope everyone had a solid start yesterday, and good luck in your matchups on a busy Tuesday!

    currently own speights but looking at Smart or Len after today’s performances.

    Should i make the drop or hold onto speights? They said bogut’s injury isn’t serious, but speights has been pretty solid. just worried about Lee’s return.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Hamtime: yeah I’m worried about Lee too, but I’m holding Speights, think he’ll be the most consistent.

    Razzup JB … 14er H2H and looking to find another guard for Calderon and wondering about packaging him with Motiejunas who I don’t really need but I think has some trade value right now … who might be a fair target as a guard with that sort of package?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dirk’s Digglers: Razzup my man! Ummm, I don’t think you can command much value with that… It2? Might be shooting too low? Beverley? I’m fine with both of those even though it’s seemingly low return

  3. Dante Green says:
    (link)

    Yo JB just one question! Been a fan of PHX for a looong time now, so i’ve got bledsoe on my roster! Anyway, everybody knows his injury history, is that something i need to worry about? Should I sell him high now? Dude been killing it!! I know I need a PF/C upgrade but i’m leaning towards moving dirk than bledsoe, i dont know man. Your thoughts?

    • Dante Green says:
      (link)

      @Dante Green: oops somebody just dropped reggie jax, should i try and scoop him up? Ive got lots of guards but i can use him as bait and trade to other teams!

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Dante Green: yeah e bled is much younger, I’d def rather move dirk first. Def get rjax if ha can!

      @Thunder from down under: Hmmmm it is very close… Sorta depends on needs for dimes, if your assists are good I would prob hold

  5. Clyde Prompto says:

    Gahh Brad Stevens! We really don’t need another fantasy-averse head coach. Although I will saw that his tinkering comes across as charming for some reason. Probably because he looks like he’s 12. Plus it actually seems to work more often than not. We’ll call him “Larry Shrewd.”

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Clyde Prompto: Haha well, didn’t quite work out although the subs made it close! He does look like he’s a baby out there, with that charming young smile…

    in a keeper league, $15 is the minimum price a player can be kept.

    i’ve been pondering over this deal:

    Jimmy Butler ($15) Dirk Nowitzki (too old and $50 to keep) and gorgui dieng

    for

    James Harden ($40) and Ryan Anderson

    what side ya on?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @keeperleague: What’s the league size? It’s close, especially if shallower though I would take Harden

    Just traded Favors and Rose away for Drummond and Oladipo in my 12-team H2H League. I offered Rose for Oladipo and he countered with that. Hate to see Favors go, but I didn’t want to live with Rose’s DNPs and sporatic play. Drummond has looked really good lately too, so I think I got a steal. What do you think?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Pete: I don’t know if it’s a steal, I love me some Favors, but I do like your end better 🙂

    Is KJ McDaniels going to be hurt by Wroten coming back Wednesday? I really like KJ’s blend of 3’s/steals/blocks the three cats I need most.

    Should I go with KJ wednesday, or someone else whos available such as Corey Brewer or DeMarre Carrol? Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dom: Possibly. I’m hoping he doesn’t, but I am waiting it out. I’d still go with KJ for now, Carroll is very very close, but you need the blocks so sticking with KJ

  10. nate says:

    yo!

    Rubio is on the wire.
    Should I drop Brandon Jennings to stash him?

    My current PG’s are Wall, Dragic, and Jennings.
    my league doesn’t count FG%

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @nate: Eesh tough to drop BJ. I’d rather Rubio though, btu in a non FG% I’d try to drop someone else

      @Bryce Krispie Treats: Yup, luckily I survived 2 of 3, one just because of how points shook out at the last minute for the 5th seed me getting 4th, so I’ll take that! Hahaha, we’re open to talking anything here! Need any advice for the ladies? 🙂

    Burke was dropped, should I try to grab him? 12 team H2H My Players:
    G: Rondo, Dragic, Knight
    F: KD, Ariza, #Occupy, Favors, Millsap
    C: Gortat, RoLo
    Thinking of dropping RoLo, think boards would be fine, worried about blocks, can Draymond, Gortat, Favors, and Millsap take care of my blocks?
    Olynyk, Carroll, Gerald Green, Mozgov, and Sanders also available on the wire

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Kevin: Yeah Rolo is your only drop… Ehhh I think I’m holding Rolo for now, keeping an eye on Larry Sanders though

  13. DanielL says:

    HEYYOOO

    my Tobias Harris and Kemba walker

    for

    Lance stevenson and Jared sully

    Im taking into account that harris is pointless in the playoffs and kemba has the worse shooting % in the league. I think i would be loosing, but taking those things into account what do you guys think???

    THANKS AGAIN

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @DanielL: Nahhhhhhh, I understand wanting to trade your guys for those reasons, but you should be able to get much much more. Lance can’t be shooting that much better than Kemba haha. Any time!

    Hey, was offered kevin love, nic batum and Bradley beal for jimmy butler, Eric bledsoe and Rudy gay. Clearly I would be buying low on all three of his players while potentially selling high on butler and bledsoe. I play in a 12 team roto h2h 9-cat league that uses FTM instead of TOs. The FTM seriously boosts the value of all three of my guys but I’m still not sure whether I should take the deal. I’m not entirely convinced k-love and batum will live up to their ADPs but k love could be a really sexy keeper next season if he bolts in the offseason. I also can’t tell if butler is playing a little over his head. Thoughts?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @david: Well, Love I’m pretty sure will stay in Cleveland. Roto helps Love with the bad late schedule… I think with that FTM I would hold, I mean, your guys are monsters there. I think I’m holding

    How can I turn a Melo into Harden? I’ve posted one idea below but open to suggestions!

    I give: Melo’, MCW, D.West, 7th round pick

    I get: Harden, Rubio, 4th round pick.

    10-team, 11-man rosters, 3-keepers (3-year max), h2h league. Number next to player indicates round drafted; players can be kept at a cost of one-round-higher than they were acquired.

    MY TEAM

    Melo (1), Durant (2), Conley (3), M.Gasol (4), Matthews (5), Holiday (6), MCW (8), IT2 (9) J.Hill (w), D.West (w – 8) Greivis (w)

    HIS TEAM

    Harden (1), Drummond (2), K.Thompson (3), Howard (4), Rubio (5), Faried (6), K-Mart (7), Calderon (8), P.Gasol (9), Jennings (10), Collison (11)

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Joe: Love that idea! Rubio is proba keeper next year at that price, MCW would be too, but you get a better player. Hopefully that one works! Melo + Marc for Harden + Pau? Pau is unreal right now though, I dunno if swapping Gasols would be enough, but maybe you flip the draft picks and give him a better one?

  16. Steven says:

    In a h2h non-categories league, so I don’t care where the production comes from, just looking for total value.

    Demar derozan was dropped shortly after his injury. As soon as news broke he would not need surgery I grabbed him. Is he going to be worth the stash?

    The downside is that was my only “streaming” spot left unless I drop Andrew wiggins (which I am close to doing) or KJ mcdaniels (which I definitely won’t do until he sucks for at least a week or more).

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Steven: Yeah I like stashing DeRozan, do you have any other injuries? I think if you’re relatively healthy, he’s a great stash. Def hold Wiggins! Gonna have a big 2nd half and had a good one yest.

  17. Clos says:

    Jb whatsup ended up dropping kj for burks.. He was on the waiver wire and I need some offensive stats since DMC and Terrance are down for me.. I have enough bigs to cover me on the defensive stats that kj was getting me so I feel like the pick up on burks was best for me.. I want wall.. Had him last year and he was a beast for me on a consistent basis I’ve been trying to get curry but guy who has him just won’t let him go doesn’t matter what I send him.. What do you think about

    Marc gasol, DMC, Jrue for wall, Blake and tobias or
    Marc gasol, DMC, burks for wall, Blake, tobias

    Let me know what you think

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Clos: Cool, yup given that situation I’m good with that move. Def prefer giving up Burks over Jrue, but highly doubt that will work, the 1st one might not either, but if he takes it I’d be happy!

    hey JB. I completed two trades last night in my points league.

    First: My Vucevic and Oladipo for his Butler and Gibson
    Second: My Pau, Crawford and Teague for his Westbrook, Millsap and Josh Smith

    What do you think? Don’t hold back haha

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Nikko Respeto: Well, first one helps you for the playoffs! It’s not awful, but I know Vuc kills it in your format. I think if you had gotten more than Gibson as the 2nd guy, I’d really dig it :). Oh, second one is killer! Nice!

    is it time to get rid of Mo or should I hang on? A few notable FA’s are louis williams, burks, elfrid, brewer, solomon hill, kcp

    As an Anthony Davis holder, would you trade him for Chris Paul and Jimmy Butler

    • TR says:
      (link)

      @Nikko: I’m just gonna add some context to this. 10 team league, I have davis and Nikko is offering me paul and butler for davis but I said no. I said paul/westbrook, melo, and butler for davis, kobe, and rose. Just trying to bring in a third opinion since I think he’s undervaluing Davis and he thinks I’m overvaluing

      • TR says:
        (link)

        @TR: also said no to the same trade with beal instead of Rose but I don’t know how I can be expected to trade davis for less than that

        • Nikko Respeto says:
          (link)

          @TR: Let me show you what the averages are of each player:

          Davis: 32.3
          Kobe: 18
          Rose: 12.7

          Paul: 26.1
          Butler: 21.9
          Melo: 20.1

          I just do see how this is fair. Yeah Davis is really good. But so is Paul.

            @TR: @Nikko Respeto: Hahaha you two. 10 team league, yeah it’s going to take the fortune of 3 small countries to get Davis from me. I’d want Davis side, sorry Nikko! 🙁 Rose is also deflated with PPG bringing in a lot of low minute games. Also, replacement level guys are aplenty, I want the monster best guy

            • Nikko Respeto says:
              (link)

              @JB Gilpin: There really isn’t much talent on our waivers though. I am doing exceptionally well with my team and the talent I already have I feel isn’t worth to give up my best players for one great player. Maybe I’m just very biased with my team and don’t want to have Davis if my team become average. I think I’m best off without him.

    Someone just dropped Josh Smith in my 10-team H-to-H league! Should I drop Terrence Jones or Sanders? I am #1 in my league now.

    G: Curry, Hayward, Danny Green, Jeff Teague, Lawson, KJ McDaniels, Patrick Beverly
    F: David West, Favors, Sulliger, Millsap, Markieff Morris, Terrence Jones,
    C: Sanders

      @Richard: Def losing Jones for him, but caution to be sure and bench Smith late in weeks when you’ve blown out the counting stats and wanna protect %s

    Hey JB,

    Looks like meeks is almost ready to kill kcp’s vibe.

    Would you rather meeks or ersan in a 14 teamer looking for overall production sans blocks?

    Thanks!

      @J: Ummmm, well Meeks will be eased in, but yeah I like him over Ersan. Jury is still out if he’s back this week, depends on practice

    Hey

    Why do you hate Evan Turner so much?
    When I compare him to Iggy this season, Turner is better all across the stats except for TO.
    Is it ROS value that worries you or just personal thing? lol

    So I have Frye, Iggy, and Watson that I can drop but can’t stream daily.

    Do you recommend picking up any of the guys you mentioned?
    i.e. Evan Turner, Reggie Evans, Jason Thompson, Boozer, Solomon Hill(tho I have Stuckey and Watson already), Dunleavy

    Thanks

      @ABulldogs: Mostly a personal thing haha. Guys I hate irrationally no matter what – Klay Thompson, Rolo, Evan Turner… Nick Young! Nate Robinson. That’s most of the list. Although Rolo is legit fading. I’d rather HIll over Turner though, I know it’s a lot of Pacers, but like his role more. Prob would lsoe Iggy for him.

    Just got offered a team shaker…

    I give up: Horford, Knight, 2 streamers (Mirotic and O’Quinn)
    I get: Noah, Tyreke Evans, Wiggins, Ed Davis.

    Way too iffy for me. I think Evans and Noah have too much injury problems, wiggins is slumping, and I <3 knight, and Horford has to pick it up.

    What u thinking? I know I could get a lot of value, but i'm iffy…

      @Wutang: Whewwww I’m very iffy too… I think i hold, agree Horford over Noah and KNight is by far next best. I love Wiggins for the 2nd half, but I’d want an upgrade over Tyreke to do it

      • Wutang says:

        @JB Gilpin: Where’s the love for wiggins for the 2nd half coming from? guess brewers gonna get traded, but he’s getting major minutes already! maybe hell figure it out?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:

          @Wutang: Less about minutes and more about more usage and more offense flowing through him. Def think he will

    Olynyk hit WW. Dunno if I should drop Mo for him. Curse you Brad Stevens

      JB Gilpin says:

      @cowsep: Hah, yeah I think I’d take Olynyk or stream for a need over Mo Will, not sure when he’ll be back and guessing he’lll be eased in

      • cowsep says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Should I gamble on Meeks? or pickup Olynyk. Reggie Evans available too. Thanks!

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:

          @cowsep: Still gonna roll with Olynyk, but it’s close with those 3. Need to see Meeks healthy and playing decent minutes before I pick him up. Any time!
