Dennis Schroder scored 28 points, grabbed three boards, and dished out nine dimes to lead the Hawks to a 117-115 victory over the Cavaliers. He did turn the ball over six times and did not accumulate any defensive stats, but we still love him. The Mitchell family still loved their little Dennis, even though he caused mischief whenever and wherever he went. Now, things are looking promising going forward. His usage rate is at 31%, he’s hoisting up almost 19 shots per game, averaging over 21 points, and dishing out six dimes a game. Granted, it was against the Cavs, a team with Derrick Rose and Jose Calderon starting at point that gives up fantasy manna to the position. HINT: play all point guards against the Cavs. With that said, The Menace is a top-50 player and should finish there when all is said and done.

Here’s what else I saw yesterday:

James Harden went biggidy bonkers, dropping a 56 burger on the Jazz. He also dished out 13 dimes and pilfered two, but only grabbed two boards. After averaging 8.1 boards last season, he’s only grabbing 4.6, which is in line with his career average. I don’t get how he can play with that beard. It must get so nasty during the game. Keep in mind that I only have to shave a three inch area on my face like once a month. The Stocktonator had no fear of the matchup with Utah and loved Harden yesterday.

Kevin Love had to leave the game after only playing 18 minutes due to an undisclosed illness. He was taken to the hospital  but has been released. Love was released but the illness was undisclosed. That’s terrible news for hate, but excellent for ignorance. The Cavs will probably play more small ball with LeBron James at center perhaps? Jae Crowder and Jeff Green at forward? Channing Frye and Ante Zizic could see an increase in minutes when the Cavs field a more traditional lineup. Frye played 10 minutes and Zizic received two minutes of run yesterday.

LeBron James scored 26 points, grabbed five boards, dished out 13 dimes, pilfered one, and blocked two in 40 minutes! As a Lakers fan, I’d appreciate if the Cavs didn’t completely nuke LeBron this year. As I’ve mentioned in prior posts, LeBron is set up for a huge fantasy season. The Cavs are that bad.

Dwayne Wade scored 25 points, grabbed 11 boards, dished out six dimes, and blocked one in 32 minutes! That’s the first time he played over 25 minutes since the first two games of the season. Wade found the Foutain of Youth. Gabrielle Union must have fantastic juice. Or he purchased that DeLorean that was for sale on Craiglist. I’d imagine that Wade gets more run with Love down. LeBron’s going to need all hands on deck.

Kyle Korver scored 25 points and grabbed five boards, shooting 5-for-11 from downtown. Aye Aye Captain!

John Collins scored 12 points, grabbed 13 boards, dished out one dime, and blocked two in 24 minutes. Slowly, but surely, it’s happening guys. It’s like the tectonic plates of the Pacific Ring of Fire. They move ever so slowly, with one plate subducting under another, until the build up of energy needs to be released in explosive fashion. Basically the opposite of a 15-year-old boy experimenting with his sock for the first time. I’ve already re-posted that twice now. I’m just going to continue copy and pasting until the eruption finally happens. Reminds me of waiting for Mt. St. Helen’s to erupt back in the day.

Marco Belinelli grabbed one board and dished out one dime in 19 minutes. Well, that was fun.

Isaiah Taylor scored 14 points, grabbed two boards, dished out three dimes, blocked one, and pilfered one in 26 minutes. With Malcolm Delaney down with an injury, Taylor has played 26 and 25 minutes the past two games. He’s making a legitimate case for that backup point guard position.

With Ersan Ilyasova and Mike Muscala out, Luke Babbitt got the start and delivered 17 points, three boards, two dimes, one steal, and one block in 42 minutes! He went 4-for-8 from downtown. He can shoot, but when the Hawks are healthy, he won’t get enough minutes to be viable.

Taurean Prince scored 17 points, grabbed five boards, dished out one dime, and pilfered one in 36 minutes. Prince may never be a king, but he gets the minutes and stuffs the stat sheet.

Justise Winslow got the start and scored two points, grabbed two boards, and pilfered one in 17 minutes. Thanks for playing.

Josh Richardson scored 14 points, grabbed two boards, dished out four dimes, and pilfered three in 35 minutes. I’ve seen a lot of people wanting to drop JRich recently. His offensive game may not be consistent, but he contributes nightly across the board, especially in the defensive categories. He’s played less than 30 minutes only once this season.

Danilo Gallinari left the game after 13 minutes due to a bruised hip. Mamma Mia! Gallinari has played over 70 games in a season just twice in his nine year career. Wes Johnson replaced Gallinari and ended up playing 33 minutes. He scored six points, grabbed five boards, dished out one dime, and blocked one. I only get excited about Wes because I hear Gus announcing a game in my head.

Blake Griffin was good. No, he was great as usual. I wanted to write about Blake again because he has three blocks on the season! I know he’s never been a block guy, but man….He’s 6′ 10″ 251 pounds and jumps over cars.

Lou Williams scored 22 points, grabbed two boards, and dished out two dimes in 30 minutes. Lou tied Blake for the team lead in shot attempts with 18. He’s the NBA version of mercenary assassin.

Marcus Morris returned to action for the Celtics and scored 12 points, grabbed seven boards, dished out one dime, and pilfered two in 23 minutes. We have to see how Brad Stevens maps out the rotations and allocates minutes. There’s limited upside here. It’s as if you’re only getting half a glass.

Kyrie Irving scored 11 points, dished out five dimes, and pilfered one in 28 minutes. The Celtics are too good and well-coached! It’s messing with Kyrie’s fantasy value! While Kyrie always has the potential to explode, he’s more than likely going to settle into a predictable range. It’s like….missionary on a nightly basis. Yes, it’s good but….you know what I’m saying?

Marcus Smart scored 11 points, grabbed eight boards, dished out eight dimes, pilfered three, and blocked one in 29 minutes. He still can’t shoot (4-of-12 from the field), but he stuffs the stat sheet.

Evan Fournier scored six points, grabbed four boards, and dished out two dimes in 36 minutes. He shot 2-of-14 from the field. Evian had been on such a torrid run, scoring over 20 points in eight of nine prior games. Gotta give Jaylen Brown a ton of credit for tainting that water. Speaking of Brown, he also took care of business on the offensive end, scoring 18 points, grabbing seven boards, dishing out one dime, and pilfering two in 28 minutes. He is so good.

Jonathon Simmons got the start but only played 21 minutes. He scored 14 points, grabbed three boards, and dished out one dime. He’s cooled off a bit after a hot first week, but he has the potential to drop 20 any night with a couple of boards and assists.

Jonathan Isaac played 29 minutes, thanks to Simmons moving to point guard for the injured Elfrid Payton and DJ Augustin. Isaac scored nine points, grabbed six boards, and blocked two. He’s versatile and can play multiple positions. With that said, he’s raw and will play around 20 minutes when Elf returns. At 6′ 10″, Isaac should not be running around burning calories. They need him to eat all the leftovers from the concession stands.

Terrence Ross scored nine points and pilfered one. He shot 2-for-12 from the field. Ross is the Billy Hamilton of fantasy basketball. He’s sexy with his hops and dunking ability, but he can’t shoot. What would the equivalent of “Can’t steal first” be?

Markieff Morris scored 10 points, grabbed four boards, and pilfered two in 17 minutes. It’s going to take time for him to get up to speed, but his prospects are better than his other half over in Boston.

John Wall did not start due to a shoulder injury. It doesn’t sound serious and Wall should be back soon. In his place, Tim Frazier got the start and scored four points, grabbed two boards, dished out eight dimes, and pilfered one in 31 minutes. The main beneficiary of the Wall injury was Bradley Beal, who scored 38 points, grabbed five boards, dished out four dimes, and pilfered one in 39 minutes. He went 16-of-26 from the field and 4-of-6 from downtown.

Jonas Valanciunas only played 18 minutes due to foul trouble. Too bad it wasn’t sweet.

Kyle Lowry was ejected after picking up two technical fouls in the second quarter. I wonder which football game it was that he wanted to watch.

Norman Powell scored 19 points, grabbed a boards, dished out two dimes, blocked two, and pilfered two in 34 minutes. So far, for three games in November, Powell is playing close to 30 minutes per game and averaging 14.5 points. He’s shooting 61% from the field, making 1.5 threes, pilfering one, and chipping in 2.5 boards and assists. I’ve always like the athleticism from Powell, but he’s been inconsistent. If he gets the minutes, he can be an asset.

Ryan Anderson scored six points, grabbed five , dished out one dime, and blocked one. There is a glitch in the Matrix, Mr. Anderson. Here are his home/road splits for points scored since D’Antoni came to town:

HOME ROAD
2017 6.3 16
2016 11 16.3

Marquese Chriss played 19 minutes and scored three points, grabbed three boards, and dished out two dimes. Dragan Bender played 20 minutes and also scored three points, grabbed four boards, and dished out two dimes. Jay Triano must be a RBBC kind of guy.

Tyson Chandler scored seven points, grabbed 14 boards, dished out two dimes, and pilfered one in 29 minutes. He’s played 29, 25, and 33 the last three games. It’s gotta be to increase trade value right? As long as he’s getting minutes, he’s viable.

Mike James played 20 minutes while Tyler Ulis played 27 minutes. This is basically the cute girl stringing everyone along.

Brandon Paul scored 11 points, grabbed two boards, dished out three dimes, and pilfered three in 27 minutes. Holla! He’s in there for defense and has produced when given the opportunity. Just be aware that he can play 30 minutes one night, then six the next.

Bryn Forbes scored 12 points, grabbed two boards, and dished out two dimes. He usually gets run when Manu Ginobli sits.

Myles Turner got the start but only played 24 minutes. He scored 15 points, grabbed four boards, dished out one dime, and blocked one. It will take some time, but he’s going to start making beautiful music very soon.

Victor Oladipo and Darren Collison both played 38 minutes. Dipo scored 17 points, grabbed five boards, dished out three dimes, pilfered two, and blocked one. He led the team with 21 shot attempts. Collison scored 15 points, grabbed five boards, dished out 10 dimes, and pilfered two. Minutes and opportunity equals Straight Cash Homie.

Domantas Sabonis scored 16 points, grabbed eight boards, and dished out three dimes in 29 minutes. Even with Myles, Sabonis got decent run. He’s deserved it with his play to begin the year. Nate McMillan said he’s going to have Sabonis and Turner play together, so we shall see how often that happens when Myles gets his full allottment of minutes.

Kristaps Porzingis scored 40 points, grabbed eight boards, dished out one dime, and blocked six m’fing shots! Yo, Blake!!! What’s up? The Knicks are 5-4 and PGod dishes out 1.0 dimes per game. Melo never dished out fewer than 2.6 dimes per game during his stint in New York. I did mention that we’d see Evil Porzingis this season. And I freaking love it!

Enes Kanter played 31 minutes. That makes back-to-back games with 30+ minutes.

It’s gotta be, right?

Willy Hernangomez – https://basketball.razzball.com/to-the-6-boroughs. Just scroll down to the Enes Kanter section.

Frank Ntilikina scored 10 points, grabbed two boards, dished out seven dimes, and pilfered three in 24 minutes. I think it’s time to pick him up. He’s getting more minutes, is performing well, and Jarrett Jack is ahead of him on the depth chart. You can actually disregard the first two things and just focus on the last part.

Cody Zeller scored 16 points, grabbed nine boards, and blocked one in 22 minutes. Dwight Howard is still the guy in Charlotte, but the team has always liked Zeller. Well, I guess they didn’t like him that much or they wouldn’t have signed Dwight in the offseason, but whatever. He won’t supplant Dwight, but could be very, very productive if Dwight were to go down.

Jimmy Butler scored 13 points, grabbed six boards, dished out one dimes, and pilfered one in 30 minutes. He hoisted up six shots and now has a 20.5% usage rate on the season. I know people are going mental over Buckets right now, with good reason. Ask yourself this: Which would piss you off more? Trading Jimmy away and watching him return to form? Or holding onto Jimmy and having him perfom as he has been? Let’s meditate on the question….

Carmelo Anthony was ejected after a questionable Flagrant-2 foul. He played 23 minutes and scored 15 points and grabbed six boards.

Steven Adams scored four points, grabbed four boards, dished out one dime, blocked one, and pilfered one in 31 minutes. After a torrid start, he’s failed to score in double-digits the past two games. The four boards were a season-low. Adams will be fine. He’s getting the minutes.

Jusuf Nurkic scored 25 points, grabbed eight boards, dished out three dimes, blocked two, and pilfered three in 33 minutes. After a slow start to the season, Nurkic has been ballin the past three games. Some times it good to be a patient grasshopper.

Damian Lillard scored 36 points, grabbed three boards, dished out 13 dimes, and blocked one in 37 minutes. I just want an excuse to post Dame Dolla.

Dillon Brooks scored 13 points, grabbed three boards, and dished out one dime in 26 minutes. He’s been inconsistent, but he’s been getting minutes. Andrew Harrison, who started, only received nine minutes of run. It helps that Brooks can play multiple positions.

Tyreke Evans continues to ball the F out. 32 minutes, 26 points, one board, two dimes, and one steal. That now makes four consecutive games with 30 or more minutes.

Kyle Kumza scored 13 points, grabbed 12 boards, and dished out one dime in 37 minutes! Steal. Of. The. Draft.

    Hi Son!

    Would you think that Frank Ntilikina would be worth the hold? Dunn hurts my alot in FG% and TOs while Ntilikina is much better overall and has huge upside in AST and STL with some 3pts which my team also needs hehe.

    Apparently these guys are also available and you might suggest someone better than those 2 lol

    Mills/Rozier/Nelson/Chalmers — trash available players hahaha

                  (link)

                  @mUshi: You gotta ask yourself that question. Since you are trading Kuz for value, pretty much everyone will be a win. Comes down to personal preference. I’m super high on Kuz but I’m a Lakers fan. If you want a big, V is fine. Would I do it? Probably not. Ha!

    Hey Son, so I floated some offers:

    Butler for Love
    Butler for Lowry
    Butler & Jaylen for Whiteside
    Butler & Jaylen for Turner

    I’m just so sick and tired of Butler so here’s to hoping someone clicks the accept button. Lmao

    • Son

      Son says:

      @Dante Green: Ha! I feel your pain Dante! Good luck. I’m hoping you for door number four

      • Dante Green says:
        (link)

        @Son:

        Meh, no friggin takers. Nobody even wants to touch him. Should we do a Middleton or Porter swap?

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          @Dante Green: Yeah, you are pretty much selling low. If you want to unload him, you will have to create an altar, sacrifice a virgin a day, then pray that he has a couple of big games. Then people will be more inclined to “buy low.” Of course, if that happens, you will think that he’s turned it around and won’t be able to let him go. Oh, the conundrum!!!

          • Dante Green says:
            (link)

            @Son:

            Lmao This cracked me up! Nah I’m not having it, by the way the Wolves are playing I don’t really see Butler going off soon, not even later. He’s become the Zaza Pachulia of the warriors. He’s the 5th option behind Taj, I mean seriously. Lol

  6. Lasandro says:
    (link)

    God I like Kenny G, particularly when dude collabed with r&b singers in the 90s.. oh boy!

    In a 10 team, 14 cat roto: TJ Mac, dinwiddie, Murray and Donovan. Pick 2 pls! Inherent needs are assists and low turnovers. Currently rostering the first 3 of the bunch, but thinking of flipping Jamal for Donny, as the latter seems to be doing what we want Murray to be doing. TJ is so good in the peripheral stats!

    Also, is Marc a good sell high these days or are we holding? I was thinking of going for someone ranked higher, like a Myles. If he continues on his current path, I’m absolutely fine holding.

    • Lasandro says:
      (link)

      @Son: all good – Mitchell is gone now. Guess I’ll hold on to Murray for a bit longer.

      Interested on your take on Marc.

      Son says:

      @Lasandro: Ha! Oh boy is right! TJ and DMitch. If you can Myles for Marc, I’d do that

      @Miel: Really depends on context. In a vacuum, I’d probably lean Cov/Nurk

        (link)

        @Miel: @Son: thanks for your feedback. I had cov/nurk and felt that i’m good on bigman as i have whiteside,horford, millsap and markannen on my team and o ly had curry as my source of assist for now. I might hold for now as i still have cp3and hoping he could be back real soon.

        • Son

          Son says:

    12 team, 9 category H2H. Competitive redraft league that seems to hard point guards.

    I need help with a pick-up!

    Ntilikina, Taj, Bojan Bogdanovic, Dinwiddie and are all available on wire.

    My lineup (listed in order or starting preference)
    PG: Westbrook, Kemba, Jrue Holliday, Teague
    SG: Klay Thompson, Beal
    SF: Carroll, Taurean Prince, Saric, Harrison Barnes
    PF: Kevin Love, Ibaka
    C: Drummond, Nurkic, Dedmon

    I have Isiah Thomas stashed on IR.

    My heart wants to pick up Ntilikina, but my head tells me I’m thin at F, particularly SF. Which leads me to Bojan…but then I look at Taj’s minutes and the Kevin Love illiness…

    Is Taj the pick-up here, likely for Harrison Barnes (who is boring) or Saric?

    Help?

    • Son

      Son says:

      @DC Tom: I agree. You’re stacked at G. I’d pick up Taj for Saric

    Hi Son!

    I was wondering if you think any of these Cs can improve their current situation down the road: Labissiere, Portis, Saric, Holmes, G. Monroe, T. Thompson, Hernangomez, Swanigan… I am really in need of centers.

    My team is Payton, Dunn, Ntilikina, Murray, LaVine, Bledsoe, J Richardson, Middleton, Ingram, Prince, Oubre Jr, Hollis-Jefferson, Antetokounmpo, T Gibson and Myles Turner.

    I recently dropped M James for Ntilikina. Currently I am really tempted about picking Aminu from waivers… perhaps instead of Oubre Jr, however, he has been putting very nice numbers.
    Who would you drop from my team?
    Other interesting players I could grab are: N Powell, T Johnson, Valentine, Ennis, Bender, Monk, K Anderson, Isaac, Fultz

    Thanks in advance!

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @AKTHESAVIOR: I’d go with Holmes out of that group. Aminu is fine. High floor. Limited ceiling. I wouldn’t drop anyone.

      • AKTHESAVIOR says:
        (link)

        @Son: I need to drop someone for Aminu and or Holmes.

          • AKTHESAVIOR says:
            (link)

            @Son: Thank you for your advice.

            So you dont see a lack of big men? Please also note that my league has two spots for C when making the lineup…

    Hey Son,

    Is it crazy to trade Rubio Kevin Love and Gortat for kemba and Jokic?

      @J: I think so

        @Son: Yeah, just fretting about Rubio a bit. Looks like K Love is fine.

        Who you like as another pg off waivers, Mudiay, Dunn, or Frank Ntilikina? Specifically as a plug n play tomorrow night but also potentially to hold onto?

          @J: Ntilikina

    Thoughts on Rondo after he returns?? I think I could get him by offering Jamaal Murray in a trade. I’m considering buying now instead of waiting until he is back.

      @Jason: Lot of uncertainty. I’d rather have Murray

    What’s good Son? Thanks for the write-up. Good stuff as always.

    I’m in a H-2-H 10-team keeper (keep 8) that uses an unorthodox scoring system (i.e., a player’s performance on any given matchup is based on the highest three categories out of points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks). Essentially, you need players to start at guard, forward, and center that will rack up points, rebounds, and assists.

    I have a solid team, but could potentially upgrade a couple of positions and improve coverage for daily matchup’s.

    I kept Nerlens Noel, but it’s looking as if he’s not factoring into the Mavericks’ plans going forward. Drop him for Dewayne Dedmon (ATL) or Robin Lopez (CHI)?

    Also…I’m going to stay on the Josh Richardson bandwagon, and really like Kris Dunn going forward on Chicago, but Patrick Beverley, Norman Powell, Dwayne Wade, and Rajon Rondo (injured) are all sitting out there on the waiver wire. In your opinion, do any of the aforementioned sound as a better option to Richardson or Dunn?

    Thanks!

      @Slimcompoop Sup Slimcompoop! Nice name. Interesting scoring. I kind of get it but not really. Anyways, would rather have Lopez. I’d rather have Beverley than Dunn

      • Slimcompoop says:
        (link)

        @Son: I loathe the Lopez twins, but maybe I can get past that to make my team better at the expense of Noel. I think Beverley is better than Dunn for THIS YEAR, but are you willing to bail on Dunn in a keeper? The Bulls are SO terrible.

        Appreciate the response.

          @Slimcompoop: Ha! Totally understand. I’ve never been a big Dunn guy, so I’m probably the wrong person to be asking about him. Just food for though. Dunn can’t beat out Jerian Grant. Just saying.

    Got offered (12 team dynasty):
    I get: Dame + J smith (droppable player)
    I give: Lonzo, Dragic, RHJ

    should I up it on his side, or is this already good enough? (I offered dragic+lonzo for dame, and he responded with this, but still kept the old offer on the table)

    LMK whachu think.

    p.s. great write up as always my dude.

    • Son

      Son says:

      @Pavel: Interesting. I’d rather not give up two PGs but if that’s his price I’d do it. I like RHJ a lot so would look to include someone else.

      Thanks for the kind words!

    I think it’s just a matter of time before Bender steals the starting PF gig from Quese. What do you think his line would look like if he does end up starting and gets consistent minutes in the 28-30 range? Hmmm And I just wanna inform you that I am a suuuuuper Suns fan and right now I have Bender on my lineup. Lol So I do want him to get em minutes and play well! Hah But….. Ntilikina intrigues me! I’ll be watching the Suns game against Brooklyn later on TV and if I don’t like what I see this is #DropCity for Bender. Lol

      Son says:

      @Dante Green: Yeah, it wouldn’t shock me if Bender were to get the job. I was intimating that thought last week. With that said, I think the probable outcome is that they continue to split. I don’t think the Suns just totally give up on Chriss. Ha! Good luck my man.

    Giannis for Lowry+Whiteside. Which side?

      • MakeLoveLikeWar says:
        (link)

        @Son: I assume this is still a yes: I was offered Giannis+Vucevic for my Whiteside+Lowry+Jordan. I’m a punt assist build. That’s worth it, right? That’s going to hurt in rebounds, blocks, and fg%. I have KAT, Collins, and Markieff to help.

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          @MakeLoveLikeWar: Had to meditate on this one. It’s a lot to give up, but that’s how you get. I like the G//Vuc side

          • MakeLoveLikeWar says:
            (link)

            @Son: Is it better for me if I try to just get Giannis for Lowry+Whiteside instead?

    What do you think Criss’ outlook is? I’m thinking in a 10er I may need to bail for a streaming spot. Which would Clarkson or those of less calibor…

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @miles proudfoot: Looks like a time share for now. Things change fast though. His ceiling is massive, but it’s easier to drop in a 10er. When in doubt, I go with the handy WBMA. Which Brings More Anger.

  22. miles proudfoot says:

    I like that. Also the Spurs injury reporting brings me the most anger.

  23. MuppetManiac says:

    Would you drop Allen Crabbe for Frank Ntilikina?
    My PGs are Kyle Lowry, Dennis Schroder and Jamaal Murray. So I could use the extra steals and assists.

    • Son

      I would but patience will be required

    Droppable: dinwiddie, levert, Crabbe
    Waivers: korver, luc mbah, nowitzki, ntilikina, Gilchrist, Nance

    Who do I drop and who do I pickup?

    • Son

      @Jake: LeVert and Crabbe for Korver and Ntilikina

  26. Duttz says:

    Hey Son! Would you drop Tony Snell for Frank Ntilikina? I picked up Snell for 3’s and some points production. Can Ntilikina produce these? Not too familiar with his game.

    Thanks in advance!

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I would. You can always find a Snell

      • Duttz says:
        (link)

        @Son: Done! Thanks man!

        • Son

          Son says:

          @Duttz: Good luck. May require some patience

    I’ve had it w bender. Who would you add for him: parsons, Korver, portis, or okafor?

    Crabbe played well today, but have an offer for Chriss (who seems frustrating to own). Pass right?

    Lonzo or ariza?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      @Hamtime: Korver. Rather have Crabbe right now. If you hate Bender, you’ve gotta hate Chriss as well, right? With that said, the ceiling is still super high for Chriss, so if you believe, hold him. I’m a Lonzo guy.
