Nets shopped Landry Shamet before landing James Harden | Yardbarker

Being in the zone is one of the greatest feelings in the world. Everything you chuck up has an increased probability of going in for some reason. Is it just perception? No, because the numbers bear it out. Is it some feeling or boost you get from confidence? Are the muscles and synapses firing faster and more efficiently to allow for greater accuracy? Are the stars aligned? Is the code in the matrix error-free? Whatever the case may be, it is amazing and I want it all the time. Unfortunately, that isn’t possible, and even if it was, then the script would flip because then the zone would be about missing a shot because we would be so accustomed to making everything. Ah, the conundrums of living. Last night, Landry Shamet was on one.

30 2 3 0 0 1 7/12 10/15 3/4

The 30 points were a career-high. Over the last four games, he’s played 38, 21, 36, and 26 minutes, scoring 30, 20, 17, and 19 points respectively. The usage rate has been 22, 33, 19, and 20. That’s been good for top 70 value. Now, the Nets are dealing with injuries so he will turn back into a pumpkin but enjoy this heater while it lasts.

Only played four minutes because he got a boo boo after bumping into Trevor Ariza. Initial diagnosis was just a bruise so…..whhhhhhheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwww.

Bruce Brown

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
8 11 2 2 1 1 0/1 4/7 0/2

Got the start for James Harden and played 30 minutes.

Bruce Brown Boards Block

In 32 games as a starter, BBBB has averaged 25.9 minutes, 10.4 points, 5.4 boards, 1.9 dimes, and 1.1 steals.

Kyrie Irving

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
20 4 9 2 2 4 2/9 6/19 6/6

All the numbers in that stat line are flat. Maybe Kyrie is onto something.

Trevor Ariza

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
15 9 1 0 0 1 3/6 5/9 2/2

Ariza is so old that he’s outlasted the Energizer bunny. Damn, he’s only 35 years old? Anyways, he’s been playing 30.7 minutes over the last four games and been a top 45 player. He’s contributing a little something something in every cat.

Bam Adebayo

If I accidentally slip one past the goalie, I’m naming the next kid Bam, regardless of gender. Good thing I’m married with two kids and….What is sex?

Dewayne Dedmon

Goran Dragic

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
18 8 7 1 0 2 3/9 6/16 3/3

The shooting efficiency has been rough (sub-40% over the last six games) but he’s been providing some points, tres, boards, dimes, and steals in 26 minutes per game.

Zion WilliamSON

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
34 9 5 2 0 2 0/3 13/23 8/11

Zion, bored of hitting on all the virgins in heaven, decided to come down to earth and play ball. Just not fair. At least he could’ve taken the body of Spud Webb or something. Whoa, now I wonder which god did that back in the day?

Eric Bledsoe

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
22 4 4 0 0 2 3/9 8/20 3/3

Why the hell is Bledsoe taking 20 shots? Ahhh, Thibs is a genius.

Julius Randle

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
33 5 10 5 0 4 2/8 11/28 9/10

Played 47 minutes!! The game did go to OT so….Randle has been a top 10 player over the last four games. Top 20 over the last eight games. He’s scored 33, 44, 32, and 34 points with plenty of periphery stats. Hail, Julius!!

Taj Gibson

18 14 5 2 0 4 2/4 8/14 0

But dad?! Shut up, Domantas. You did not triple-double and no blocks? Seriously? Back when I played, if I didn’t get at least three blocks, I’d have to walk home in the snow. Arvydas is no joke.

Myles Turner

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
9 11 2 0 0 1 1/5 2/9 4/6

Returned from a six-game absence and played 34 minutes. *Gets tap on shoulder* Looks back and it’s Arvydas. At least Myles has an excuse.

Malcolm Brogdon

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
29 3 8 0 1 4 3/7 11/18 4/4

Has scored 29 points on the dot in three of the last five games. You can get over the hump!!! Brogdon has scored over 30 points three times this season.

TJ McConnell

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
18 1 7 1 0 0 0 9/10 0

In 36 minutes. Is that good?

John Collins

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

Returned from a nine-game absence and played 21 minutes. Hawks still beat the Pacers 129-117. Man, the Pacers suck.

Clint Capela

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
25 24 0 2 3 1 0 10/17 5/9

The 10th 20/20 game of his career. The third one with at least two steals and two blocks as well. Despite the sub-60% free-throw shooting, Capela is a top 20 player on the season.

Trae Young

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
34 5 11 2 0 2 3/9 9/21 13/14

Man, the ceiling is so high with Trae. So much inconsistency, though. I’m going to call him the Yo-Yo. Over the last seven games, he’s scored, 34, 15, 42, 14, 30, 13, 28.

Darius Bazley

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
16 8 1 0 1 5 3/5 6/15 1/2

Since returning from a 16-game absence, Bazley has played five games and averaged 31.9 minutes, 16.2 points, 1.6 tres, 6.6 boards, and 1.8 dimes. The usage has been 25 but the turnovers have been at four per game. The disappointing thing is the lack of defensive stats.

Aleksej Pokusevski

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT

Kim Jong-un is trying to procure the services of Pokusevski in order to enhance his firewalls.

Luguentz Dort

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
29 4 2 1 0 1 5/8 9/15 6/8

This transformation has been more surprising and impactful than when Michael J. Fox turned into Teen Wolf.

Over the last three games, Dort has scored 29, 26, and 42 points while garnering a 27, 31, and 41 usage rate. He’s also chipped in periphery stats. Ahhh woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

Isaiah Roby

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
11 8 3 1 1 3 1/1 4/6 2/2

Contributing across the board but only played 21 minutes.

Chris Boucher

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
31 12 2 1 1 0 6/9 10/16 5/7

Boucher was the last man standing as all his compadres sat out this one. This is the ceiling. I have trouble seeing it on a consistent basis when everyone is healthy and the team is competing, though. Keep in mind, this is coming from the man who thought Aron Baynes would be a sleeper so….

Armoni Brooks

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

My first thought was, Aaron Brooks is still in the league? Then it went to, is this the swap meet Armani? Brooks is 6′ 3″ and 195 pounds. He played his college ball at Houston and went undrafted in the 2019 draft.

Chuma Okeke

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
14 4 2 4 1 2 2/6 6/17 0

Played 33 minutes and led the team in field goal attempts. Over the last four games, he’s averaged 28.7 minutes and garnered a 21 usage rate. The shooting efficiency has been poor at 37% but he’s shooting 42% on the season. He provides a little something something in every cat.

Cole Anthony

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

First time playing over 30 minutes since returning seven games ago. He should get all the run he can handle down the stretch as Orlando is in Operation Tank. The shooting efficiency is an awful 38% on the season but he’s been at 51% over the last four games. Just looking at the improvement that Terry Rozier has made over his career, I will never dismiss anyone.

Dwayne Bacon

Mmmmm, I love sizzling bacon.

De’Aaron Fox

Top 20 player over the last seven games. Crazy. Playing 38.4 minutes per game. Crazy. 32.8 usage rate, eight dimes, 1.7 tres, 31 points. 2.3 steals, 50% field goal percentage…..CRAZY Fox!

Hassan Whiteside

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

Got the start because Richaun Holmes is dealing with a hamstring injury. Only played 19 minutes, though, but Mt. Whiteside can explode at any time.

Dorian Finney-Smith

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
22 4 1 0 1 1 6/8 8/11 0

Top 60 player over the last eight games. DFS is a low usage player but he’s playing 34 minutes per game. Tres, boards, and steals are on his menu. Not a sexy player but plays a ton of minutes and contributes everywhere without hurting you anywhere.

Kristaps Porzingis

Jalen BrunSON

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
20 4 4 1 0 3 2/3 8/10 2/4

In 31 minutes off the bench. Brunson can provide points, boards, and dimes. He’s been averaging 27 minutes per game but he did have one with only 16.

Karl-Anthony Towns

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalmost messed around. Only played 23 minutes, though, because the Timberwolves stink. Kawhi has messed around once in his career. What it do, baby? What it do? Mess around more, Kawhi!!! Knock knock. Yes? You’ve been served by Kawhi’s wife. Damn it.

Paul George

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
23 7 5 2 1 3 4/9 9/17 1/2

The number two player over the last six games. Kawhi missed four of those games but George has still been on quite the heater. This Clippers team is going to be a problem for other teams in the playoffs. Don’t sleep on them.

    Thanks Son, two questions:
    A) do you think Sato is going to start again soon? Or time to drop?
    B) for 3s and dimes, would you pick up Bane or Cole Anthony this week?

    AyyYyyO!

    Playoff time my guy ! Walking in with #1 seed. Means nothing until the job is done.

    Made some tweaks to my roster.

    Sent Nance off to the dance, swapped for BEEF STEW earlier this week.

    Nabbed Poku yesterday dropping Horton-Tucker.

    And dumped Plumlee for Bertans this morning.

    Roster looking like this now –

    H2H / 12 team / 15 man rosters pretty deep / 13 cat (Boards are 3 cats) / No IL

    Curry / Fox / FVV / Conley / Schroder / McConnell / Nunn
    P. George / Covington / Bertans / Poku
    Capela / Wendell / Noel / Stewart

    Thoughts ?

    FA’s – Clarke, Nance, Ariza, Dragic, Korkmaz, Taj, Roby, (Bamba on waivers)

    FVV – On Yahoo as “Cant cut” smh.

    Waiting on that Curry update today ! (prayers up emoji)
