Victor Von Dunkenstein had a monster game on Friday (no pun intended). 3-36-7-6-3-3-3 on 14-of 22 shooting. What a steal Victor Oladipo has been if you drafted him in the 5th-7th round.  He has resurrected his career in Indiana.  HE’S ALIIIIIIIIVE!!! KUDOS ON DRAFTING!!!

Here’s what else went down Friday in fantasy hoops:

Darren Collison – 2-16-5-6-2-0-3. Another solid game for the Collie. Woof!

Kyle Lowry – 3-11-7-8-0-0-3. Only hoisted up 11 shots, kind of interesting… Not his best night, but he should be better.

DeMar DeRozan – 26-5-5-2-1-2 with nary a trey. Dem-Dar led his team to the W tonight. His name is annoying to write with the capitalization.

Jakob Poeltl – 18-6-0-1-2-0 on a perfecto 8-of-8 shooting, but a no bueno 2-for-5 from the line. He’s Spanish, right?

Andre Drummond – 14-17-7-1-4-3 and went 4-of-5 from the line.  If he keeps up this FT shooting, he could be Most Improved Player. Seven assists too? Keep taking them Limitless pills Andre!

Avery Bradley – 1-13-0-2-4-1-2. Drummond must have stolen all the rebounds, but Bradley stole all the…steals?

Otto Porter – 1-17-3-6-2-2-0. One 3-pointer away from the rainbow line, but you gotta love this from him.  It’s crazy that this is pretty much just a slightly above average game for him. Otto-mattic.

Markieff Morris – 2-23-7-3-0-2-0 on 10-for-16 from the field. Sprinkle some ‘Kieff in there for an enhanced experience. My Blaze Brothers know what I’m talking about! You 420-friendly? No? You’re harshing my mellow brahhh!

Tomas Satoransky – 2-17-4-4-1-0-1 with 5-of-5 FTs. Came off the bench for 23 minutes and lit it up. Tim Frazier also was decent going 6-5-6-2-0-1. These two are the short-term adds in John Wall’s absence. I think Satoransky is a little more interesting.

Dwight Howard – I’m not sure if this is a misprint, but 10-9-0-0-1-9? What did he do? Admittedly, I didn’t watch this Eastern Conference snoozefest, AKA every East game involving the 4 through 11 seeds… 9 TOs should be a season high, hopefully.

Michael Carter-Williams – 12-4-6-1-1-2 as he filled in for Kemba.  Solid line for MCW and is easily worth streaming if Kemba misses more time.

Cody Zeller – 12-5-1-2-2-2. Zeller got 31 minutes, so this could be what happens if Dwight gets in foul trouble. Duly noted.

Josh Richardson – 3-27-2-1-1-1-2 on 11-of-14 shooting. Nice line for J-Rich, but I’m gonna need to see more before scooping him up. He’s been pretty underwhelming on the year, but perhaps this is the game that turns his season around?

Wayne Ellington – Congratulations! You had the second most interesting line in the most boring yet competitive game of the night!  4-12-4-1-2-0-1 and I assume he has the most games this year where all of his points come on 3’s.  Take the Ellington Charlotte!

Zach Randolph – 25-13-3-0-1-1 on 12-for-19 shooting. Z-Bo led the Kings to a huge win over the Big Bad Bulls. Without looking, I’d say this is probably one of his best nights on the year.

Bogdan Bogdanovic – 1-19-3-4-1-0-3. I’m pretty high on ‘Dan ‘Danovich because: A) I think his role is going to expand. B) He can shoot. C) There is no C. Shoutout to Grey on the baseball side. Pitchers and catchers report in 80 days! (Estimate)

Willie Cauley-Stein – 10-3-5-0-4-1. Wet Willie had a block party last night, but nobody came, because it was Kings vs. Bulls…

Kris Dunn – Cooled off going 1-6-2-8-3-0-2. The shooting wasn’t great (2-for-9), but he filled up the stat sheet nicely despite the fact. The Runn is not Dunn!

Jerian Grant – 3-17-0-6-2-0-1. So hard to predict who’s going to have a good night for this team. I would imagine if you can somehow, you could do well in DFS.

Draymond Green – 2-12-5-10-3-1-5. This is my first year owning him, and he’s frustrating in a lot of ways, but he puts up stat lines no one else in the league is capable of. It’s crazy that he’s the third or fourth best player on this team.  M-Fer’s act like they forgot about Dray!

Kevin Durant – is perfect… He got ejected tho. Expert analysis.

Steph Curry – 3-23-6-10-3-0-4. Part of me wants to trade Giannis for him for the flawless percentages, but I’m just gonna hold out for Isaiah to come back. How many owners are in that boat?

Jordan Bell – 16-4-0-1-3-0 in 16 minutes. The Warriors can make it easy for you sometimes. He’s an injury/rest day away from being a viable option. Ring my Bell!

Aaron Gordon – 5-29-7-1-1-2-3. What a beast. Magic still lost to the Dubs and are now  9-14 in the blink of an eye.

Jonathon Simmons – 18-3-2-1-1-3. 0-for-5 from deep though, and 6-for-18 shooting. I wanted to pick him up, but his FT%, TOs, and lack of 3’s hold his value back a lot.

Rudy Gay – 18-5-0-1-1-2. Second highest scorer on the Spurs next to LMA’s 22 points, as they destroyed the Grizz. Fizdale got fired from Memphis, but according to sources, you shouldn’t feel sorry for him because his wife is extremely hot. This is real news.

Jeff Teague – Finally played after missing a few games and went 2-11-3-10-0-0-2. I guess a dime bag can cure any ailment. Which is my Segway to an important topic: We need more funding for research into the medicinal purposes of Marijuana! Serious!

Jimmy Butler – 1-22-3-7-3-2-3, Hope you bought low! 7-of-7 FTs as well. I need a guy like this on my team! KAT also had a solid night going 1-23-9-0-2-1-2, but it wasn’t enough to top the Thunder.

Paul George – 5-36-4-9-0-3-2 11-of-11 from the stripe. Strong line from PG. I’m actually most surprised he didn’t get five steals too.

Steven Adams – Do you come from the land down under? 27-6-0-1-1-1 going 11-for-11 from the field and 5-of-5 at the charity stripe. Have yourself a Vegemite sandwich. Have two! Dayum!

Russell Westbrook – Just missed a trip-dub, so barely worth mentioning…

E’Twaun Moore – 4-18-1-4-1-1-2. Solid line. As Busta Rhymes once said “Gimme some Moore!”

DeMarcus Cousins – 2-23-13-4-0-1-1. He’s good.

Rajon Rondo – 1-13-8-11-0-0-2. Started alongside Jrue Holiday and got 29 minutes of burn.  Rondo Rousey put up his best fight against the Jazz, but it wasn’t enough and the Pels fell to 11-11.

Derrick Favors – 18-11-5-2-0-2. I’m a big Gobert fan, but as a Favors owner, I would love if he stayed out a little longer. Sell-high!

Alec Burks – 1-24-3-1-2-1-0. Filling in very nicely for Rodney Hood. Joe Johnson also being out definitely helps too. Jazz are thin right now and have a lot of DFS options if you’re into that kind of thing.

Donovan Mitchell – Almost made him my lede, but the game wasn’t over when I started writing this.  6-41-4-4-0-0-3. Mitchell and Yess! Smart move by Phil Jackson passing on this kid to draft Nickel Tina…What did he have, six points his last time out? I’m not great at the maths, but Mitchell got more. Looking like an absolute steal for the Jazz.

    Great write up Joel….but every time I see a joke about Steven Adams being Australian, a little part of me dies.

    Also if you aren’t already aware, look up his sister. She was an Olympic shotputter for New Zealand.

      @2rule: I’d do it if you think it will help your team build. Your TOs could be fixed, def get a lot more blocks, and FG% You’re losing A ton of assists, and 3’s but overall I like it if you can sure up those holes.
