The Nets were mired in a two-game losing streak, dropping games to the Hawks and Wizards no less. Then he heard the news that Kevin Durant would miss the next four games due to COVID protocols. Frustrated, Nash stood up from the couch, heel kicked the soccer ball conveniently laying on the floor, then began heading it against the wall. At first, it was a slow rhythmic pace….thump…..thump…..thump

Then thump..thump..thump..thump..thumpthumpthumpthumpthump. The woodpeckers in the neighborhood all flocked to the noise and gawked in amazement at the display of pecking dexterity. Then he heard it. “Honey, rewind that. And turn up the volume.”

If it worked for them, why not give it a try. Nash immediately set up a Zoom call with Mike D’Antoni, Ime Udoka, Amar’e Stoudemire, Jacque Vauhn, Adam Harrington, Jordan Ott, Tiago Splitter, and Ryan Forehan-Kelly. “Gentlemen,” he announced, “We are starting Jarrett on Tuesday.” There were mixed responses. Some believed that Jarrett Allen should have been starting all along, while others thought going to Jared meant that one was cheap and/or had poor or unsophisticated taste in jewelry. After hours of ferocious debating, compromises were made and the starting lineup for Tuesday consisted of Kyrie Irving, Bruce Brown (who was in his camp?), Taurean Prince, Jeff Green, and Allen, but it was Jarrett who blinged the brightest of them all.

In 32 minutes, as the Nets broke their losing streak with a decisive 130-96 victory over the Jazz. I don’t know how Nash doesn’t keep going to Jarrett after last night’s performance.

Here’s what else I saw last night:

Kyrie Irving

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
29 6 5 3 0 2 5/7 12/19 0

Kyrie was an animal from the get-go in this one and was instrumental in pacing the Nets to a 21-point lead after one quarter. It’s too bad that the Jazz couldn’t make any music or his night could’ve been earth-shattering. Kyrie had a 30.9 usage rate last night, and in games without Durant and Dinwiddie this season, he’s garnering a 31.8 usage rate. Durant will miss the next three games against the 76ers, Grizzlies, and Thunder.

Caris LeVert

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
24 1 5 2 0 2 2/5 9/18/ 4/4

Only played 21 minutes due to the blowout but had a 40 usage rate while on the court! Chicks like buckets, not passes to teammates. I respect it. Without Durant and Dinwiddie, LeVert has a team-leading 34 usage rate. He came off the bench, so Nash is going to keep him leading the second unit as long as one of Kyrie or Durant is playing.

Donovan Mitchell

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
31 4 4 0 0 3 3/8 10/22 8/10

On the season, Mitchell is outside the top 100. The main culprits being the 38% shooting from the field and 77% shooting from the line. Both of those numbers will improve, but I don’t think Mitchell gets much higher than finishing as a top 50-ish player come season’s end.

Anthony Davis

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
26 10 4 3 3 4 4/10 10/20 2/3

Currently the 33rd player on a per-game basis, AD has been a top 15 player over the past three games and is slowly creeping up back to the top 3 where he belongs. It reminds me of when I turn on the pan, crack the eggs, then go to my computer real quick. Shit, what’s that smell and why is there smoke everywhere?

Kyle Kuzma

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

Got the start and played 30 minutes in place of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who is still nursing an ankle injury. Kuzma plays more minutes as a starter, but the usage rate is 10 points higher when leading the second unit. It’s a better place for him to thrive.

LeBron James

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
26 11 7 1 1 6 1/4 11/20 3/3

I’m so sick of writing about this guy every night. He’s great, awesome, leading the league in this, leading the league in that, blah, blah, blah.

PPPPPSSSSSYYYYYCCCHHHHHHH!!!!! I love it! It doesn’t hurt that I’m a Lakers fan. With that said, I’ve always admired him as a basketball fan, from his days at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School. He was literally a man amongst boys and would produce insane highlights, but what I appreciated were the passes and interactions with his teammates. He knew he was a basketball God, but always tried to be one of the boys and lift up their games too. You hear that noise in the background? Yeah, I purchased mini violins that are being played by nano-drones that are floating in the air.

Dennis Schroder

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
12 2 6 0 0 4 1/4 5/15 1/1

Dennis was a menace to opposing teams early in the season. Now, he’s being a menace to managers who roster him. Over the past week, he’s been a top 200 player. He can score, provide tres, and dish out some dimes, but the shooting efficiency is poor and he doesn’t provide much in the defensive cats.

Jonas Valanciunas

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
13 11 2 1 1 4 0/1 4/13 5/5

The Grizzlies have played seven games. JV has dub-dubbed seven times. Give him another patch for his varsity jacket. Why he doesn’t get more than 28 minutes per game is baffling. Can someone explain that to me?

Tyus Jones

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
8 0 8 2 1 1 1/4 3/8 1/2

Ja Morant he is not, but Jones is starting, playing a ton of minutes (32 last night), and providing those precious dimes. He also contributes steals and tres, but not much else.

Brandon Clarke

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
12 3 1 3 1 0 1/2 5/11 1/2

Got his third start in a row and played 29 minutes. The percentages have been awful. Like free throw shooting is the same as the field goal percentage awful. Now, 60% is great for field goal percentage, but terrible for free throw percentage, so net net, bad. How about at 50%? Turrable. Now we get to Clarke’s numbers on the season. Whatever you’re thinking, go lower. Yes, lower. He’s shooting 43% from the field and 44% from the line. For perspective, he shot 60% from the field and 72% from the line last season. Everything gonna be alright. If not, then we are going to have to pair him with Lewis and explore.

Juancho Hernangomez

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
25 8 2 2 1 0 5/8 10/14 0/1

In 34 minutes as he got his second start of the season. For you inquiring minds, Juancho’s career-high is 27 points. No offense to Juancho, as I’ve always had a soft spot for him and thought he could be a sleeper if he started and got the minutes this season, but this performance says more about the Nuggets defense than anything. They are dead-last in defensive efficiency.

D’Angelo Russell

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
33 3 11 2 0 3 4/9 10/21 9/10

Snitches get stitches unless they play the Nuggets, then the red carpet gets rolled out and the cake is gotten and eaten. The past two seasons, Russell has been a top 60 player, as he averaged over 6 dimes per game and hoisted up close to 19 shots per game. This season? 4.5 dimes and 15.7 shots per game.

Jarred Vanderbilt

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
11 5 2 3 2 0 0 4/5 3/7

Played 23 minutes due to foul trouble for the rest of the front court. Prior to last night, Vanderbilt had not received more than 15 minutes in a game. He should be playing and can stuff the stat sheet, but Ryan Saunders doesn’t want to play him. <insert shrug emoji>

Nikola Jokic

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
35 15 6 3 1 4 1/1 12/20 10/12

What a Jokic! Look at these averages: 22.3 points, 1.2 tres, 11.3 boards, 12.8 dimes, 1.2 steals, and 0.7 blocks with 61% shooting from the field and 81% from the line. Hahahahahahahahhaah. What a Jokic!

Will Barton

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
19 7 3 2 0 2 2/7 7/14 3/5

In 36 minutes. It’s been an inconsistent start to the season, but Barton can contribute across the board. He just needs to find his stroke. Maybe the bloodhound the Nuggets hired is getting thrown off by all the pungent weed floating in the Denver jet stream.

JaMychal Green

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
17 6 1 0 0 1 3/3 5/8 4/6

Played 20 minutes off the bench, while Paul Millsap got the start and played 16 minutes. Start Green, you cowards!!

Facundo Campazzo

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
11 1 2 1 0 0 0/3 3/7 5/7

In 26 minutes off the bench. That’s now back-to-back games receiving over 20 minutes. The numbers haven’t been eye-popping like the highlight passes, but Campazzo can provide some tres, dimes, and steals.

LaMarcus Aldridge

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
14 6 2 1 0 1 2/6 6/16 0

Got the start and played 26 minutes after missing the past three games. Injuries are no laughing matter. Neither was the 6-for-16 shooting performance.

DeMar DeRozan

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
6 5 6 0 1 2 0 3/9 0

DeRozan scored in double figures every game last season. He has played 827 games in his career and has now scored in single digits 96 times. As my momma used to always say to me, “Shit happens, Son.”

Rudy Gay

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
16 7 1 0 0 1 3/5 6/11 1/2

Played 25 minutes off the bench. Even with the return of LMA, Gay maintained his playing time. On the season, he’s averaging 24.8 minutes, 12.7 points, 1.9 tres, 4.9 boards, 1.6 dimes, 0.7 steals, and 1.1 blocks on 41% shooting from the field and 72% from the line. That’s been good for top 110 production.

Patty Mills

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
27 1 1 1 0 1 8/12 8/16 3/4

In 29 minutes off the bench, tied for a season-high. The 16 shot attempts were also a season-high, as he kept heat checking and getting a positive result in return. That is the best feeling in the world. Too bad it didn’t happen often for me but I will always treasure the times it did. Mills is a baller and can get buckets with the best of them. Everytime I watch him play for Australia against the USA, he’s freaking the Aussie Steph Curry.

Nicolas Batum

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
21 9 3 1 1 2 2/5 8/12 3/3

Continues to start and played 36 minutes. He’s been a top 70 player, contributing in every cat but blocks, but will likely lose playing time when Marcus Morris is ready to go.

Kawhi Leonard

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
30 3 10 2 1 0 1/3 13/22 3/3

Kawhi is the number 12 player on a per-game basis right now. Over the past seven seasons, he’s finished as a top 10 player in five of them. One of those years, he only played nine games while in the other one he finished as the 15th player. He’s going to be fine. The craziest stat is that he’s only turning the ball over 1.2 times per game while garnering a 30.8 usage rate. SkyNet obviously values efficiency and limiting mistakes.

Luke Kennard

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
9 6 4 0 0 3 1/5 3/10 2/2

Got the start and played 38 minutes because Paul George is nursing an ankle injury. Man, he had so many open looks in this game and couldn’t convert, which is uncharacteristic because he’s a career 40% shooter from downtown. He does offer some playmaking ability but hasn’t really figured out his role yet in LA. I had some optimism entering the season, but if he’s not dishing out dimes or hitting tres, he’s useless because he doesn’t provide the D. All the ladies in LA are sad now.

Patrick Beverley

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
20 8 8 0 2 1 6/9 7/10 0

Beverley has been en fuego the past four games, shooting 53% from the field and posting top 60 production. Don’t expect the good times to continue, though, as he’s a low-40s shooter on the regular.

Otto Porter Jr.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
19 13 1 0 0 0 4/7 7/14 1/2

We Otto take notice of what Porter has been doing lately, starting the past four games and posting top 20 production. Unfortunately, the Bulls said that Otto will return to the bench when Lauri Markkanen returns. <shrug emoji> He may still get plenty of minutes off the bench, though. We shall see and something to keep an eye on.

Coby White

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
21 10 5 0 0 2 2/7 8/19 3/4

Coming into this game, White was more like Mr. Black Hole, as he was shooting 37% from the field. That wasn’t going to continue all season long. The Theory of Shooting Dynamics said it was so. White is a points, tres, boards, and dimes player who won’t contribute much in the defensive cats.

Robert Covington

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
14 6 1 1 1 0 4/9 5/10 0

The Lord had enough of hanging with the peasants, so he finally decided to hang out in his Manor and provide the delectables that we are so accustomed to. He’s a top 100 player on the season, but over the past four years, with three different teams, he was a top 40 player in each season. My money is on him finishing closer to top 50 than top 100 come season’s end.

Jusuf Nurkic

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
12 11 6 0 1 1 0/2 6/15 0

Patience grasshoppers. It’s happening. I know it’s like watching paint dry while getting punched in the balls, but eventually the paint does dry and the balls stopped getting punched.

CJ McCollum

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
26 5 4 3 0 5 6/14 10/21 0

Damian Lillard

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
24 5 9 0 0 0 3/11 6/17 9/11

True BFFs as they match stat lines on a nightly basis. McCollum is the number six player on the season, while Dame is 36th. Picture a see-saw. At some point one end hits the ground and stops the momentum, then it bounces off the ground and moves in the other direction. One side goes up, while the other goes down.

      The playing time has been inconsistent. It depends on if you need dimes or not.

    I had the luxury of drafting Delon Wright and Whiteside in the late rounds and thought I won the draft because of it. Fast forward to where we are now. I have lost leagues before because I was not patient with players and my patience is wearing thin in these two. Definitely not players I want in the opponents hands if they are playing their best.

    Thoughts ? Time to cut and run ? Worth holding on to for a while ?

    JA Is such a monster. I always assumed he didn’t get the minutes because coaches knew something we didn’t about his build or fatigue, but if all of them sat on this…ouch.

    Anyway, SIR SON! Question time: Would you buy on Harrison Barnes for his current scoring and rebounding output?

    I play in a 12 team, 11 cat league (standard 9 plus OFF REB and DEF REB); with the focus on boards, I want to offer Donte Div for HB. Good move of fool’s gold?

    Thanks!

    Inconsistent start to the season but trying to stay patient in my h2h, 9 cat league. Scoring and threes are poor despite having Harden and Beal. FT, FG % and low turnovers have helped. My team below for context:

    Harden, Paul, Bledsoe
    Beal, Bog Bog,
    Barton, Hunter,
    Horford, Keldon
    Ayton, JV, Holmes, Tristan
    IR: JJJ
    One streamer spot

    WW: B Lopez, Ingles, Bertans, Melton, Bane, Huerter, Nunn, Bismack, Bey,

    1. Tristan actually a streamer for this week’s matchup too. Please pick top two to replace him from WW list.

    2. Horford has not been very helpful and still has some brand value. Hold or trade? If trade, about what level player would be a reasonable offer….Draymond? Nance? Rozier?

    Comments on how to fix this team is welcomed.

      I don’t mind trading. Depends on who you get back. Value is relative.

      Your weakest cats are tres and blocks. Strengths are points, dimes, and percentages.
      Avg in boards and steals.

      I’d use that as a guide for which direction you want to go in. Once you figure that out, then targeting players will be easier

    Hi Son,

    Is there a damn thing I can do to save my team? It’s been ravaged by injuries and guys underperforming. 9-cat H2H.

    G: Irving, CP3, M. Beasley, Burks, Tyus Jones (streamer), Kemba (IL)
    F: Clarke, Plumlee, Justin Jackson, Otto Porter, MPJ
    C: Brook Lopez, LMA(O), Zubac, KAT (IL)

    I had been pretty consistent with %s and turnovers in the first few weeks, that has been flipped a little bit this week. I’m just getting destroyed in any other category, even with streamers I can keep up. Anyone you think I should move to get better somewhere? Thanks

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Without KAT and Kemba, it looks bad. Only good cats for you are blocks and percentages.

      Only thing you can do is stream like a mad man. Do you have limits on pickups?

      • Steve says:
        (link)

        Yeah, only 4 per week. Completely handcuffed, but hoping I can stay afloat until KAT comes back.

        • Son

          Gotcha. Take advantage of every streaming spot you can and look to see what the market is on your top dogs

    Hi Son, two questions:

    1- would you rather have Harden or Lillard this year? Something seems off with Harden, or at least he’s not contributing like in past years.

    2- would you send a cheap Haliburton and Bazley for Harden this year? I’m not convinced it’s worth it, Haliburton has been great and so has Bazley with an occasional off night. Even excluding the keeper potential, Harden hasn’t seemed like a top 10 guy and I’d need an improvement in points and 3s. I have the offer on the table.

    Thanks!

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Probably Harden but I wouldnt hate if you chose Lillard.

      I’d take Harden but go with your gut.

      What’s context?

      • Dungeons and Dragics says:
        (link)

        At this point I’m not sure what direction I should be going with my team. My thought was to try and trade to acquire most talent I can. You had Lowry and Westbrook ranked pretty close but Ayton as a fairly big upgrade to JV.

        Here’s my team:

        PG- Paul
        SG – Terrence Ross
        G- Lowry
        SF- Oubre
        PF- Boucher
        F – Crowder
        C – KAT
        UTIL – Schroder
        BN – Lonnie Walker, Dort, Delon Wright, Redick
        IL- Kevin Porter Jr.
        IL – Time Lord

          Looks rough. Your strengths are tres, steals, and ft%.

          You’re weak in points and dimes.
          You’re super weak in boards, blocks, and fg%.

          • Dungeons & Dragics says:

    1. Would you trade KP for Ayton ??
    2. Would you drop someone of my squad for FA ??

    FA list : cam johnson, g.hill, dort, josh rich, d.wright, ingles, g.harris, walker IV, p.williams, portis

    Thanks Son

    • Son

      Son says:

      It depends what you want to do. Your two weakest cats are tres and fg%. If you get rid of KP, then your tres suffer more but the fg% takes a massive jump with ayton
