I’ve never been a huge fan of his, but at least Mo Williams makes it really easy to have a punny title…

I would’ve said you’re as high as Busta Rhymes if you told me Mo Will was about to drop 50 last night.  What a crazy, crazy world we live in where the T’Wolves finally break out of their 15-game losing streak behind a franchise record 52-point game.  Some really weird biguns for the Wolves, remember when Corey Brewer put up 51 last year?  So both of those guys stay in the franchise record books as better scorers than Kevin Love or Kevin Garnett.  Go figure.  Makes me wanna headbutt something!  Mo with an unbelievable line of 52/4/7 hitting 19-33 FG (6-11 3PTM 8-9 FT).  Where to even start with the crazy?!  Mo hadn’t scored 30 since MARCH 2012 (!!) according to our friends at Rotoworld.  I would look at his game-logs to fact check, but we don’t fact check!  And as good as this game is, he’s not even a good pickup!  I think that’s the craziest thing…  Ricky Rubio is almost back to retake the PG minutes, and even if Flip wanted to run some combo guard lineups out there, Kevin Martin (so many Kevins in Timberwolves history!) is almost back.  Plus this game should make him easier to sell in the NBA.  Might get the Wolves a first rounder.  So while Mo is maybe worth an add for the very short-term (only 32% owned on Yahoo late last night), I’m certainly not losing anyone of value for him.  Here’s what else went down on a crazy and injury-riddled night of NBA action:

Gorgui Dieng Choo choo!  With the impending return of Nikola Pekovic, the Dieng train keeps on chuggin’ with a 10/10/6/3/2 rainbow line even after getting pile drivered.  The Dieng train is chuggin’ along faster than the Snowpiercer!

Zach LaVine Played four minutes, had 2 fouls and one turnover.  Four minutes with two fouls and one turnover is John Madden’s late night snack.

Andrew Wiggins Wiggin’ out for Wiggins!  Playing great and even with Mo Will overshadowing with his nutso game, the rook ended up with 20/3/4/0/1 and 6-6 FT.  The free throws are flowing and he’s shooting pretty well – I’m a little worried for K-Mart stockerholders.  Both the business and Kevin Martin…

Roy Hibbert – Choo choo!  Not a big fan of the Dieng train.  Tackled him and got ejected with a flagrant 2.  Played 21 minutes for 10/8/1/0/1, yet that’s still better than most of his games in the second half last year…

Rodney Stuckey – Came off the bench, but had a solid outing for 13/5/1/2/1.  He’s had some mild usefulness here and there, but even though he was coming off food poisoning I think he’s best suited for that 6th man role.

Austin Daye – New nickname!  “The Magic Man”!  “Now you see me, now you don’t!”

Kevin Seraphin – I’ve mentioned a few times I’ve been impressed with his game and strides forward this year, and got rewarded with minutes down the stretch over Marcin Gortat last night.  Ended up with a 17/8/1/0/1 line hitting 6-8 FG and 5-5 FT in 20 fantastic minutes.  Sure the Spurs struggle with interior defense, but that actually makes the fears for Gortat even worse as he’s a big bruiser vs. Seraphin more a finesse guy.  I don’t think Gortat will ever get yanked from the starting 5, but Seraphin is surely on the map.

Al Horford Man, are the Hawks all the sudden the Spurs of the East?!  Coach Butthole put Jeff Teague, DeMarre Carroll and Paul Millsap all in the roost, letting Horford rack up all the stats he could against a horrific Sixers team.  I watched a good bit of this game and it was sloppier than a drunk Snooki eating a sloppy joe (could’ve gone a lot worse there).  Horford looked like he was playing against a high school team, and got one of the most ridiculous, orchestrated – – almost like Budenholzer had money in Vegas that Horford had 3,000:1 odds of getting his first career triple-double.  21/10/10 with a swat and 8-10 FG and 5-6 FT.  Sell high!

Dennis Schroder 13/1/6/1/0, but had 4 TO and didn’t look quite as good as…

Shelvin Mack …who got a dimebag in the junk time!  It’s a shwag dimebag…  12/1/10/2/0 with a couple of treys.  He’s a really solid player that’s found his way into a lot more Hawks minutes than anyone would’ve expected in his brief career.  Maybe he gets a shot down the road somewhere…

Tony Wroten – Sprained his knee in the second half last night and is already doubtful for tonight.  A knee issue cost him some time earlier in the year, so this could be something lengthy again.  Unless they wanna rush it and trade him…

Michael Carter-Williams Had his 5 TO which is par for the course, but given how bad this game was he had a really good line for 20/9/4/1/1 on 8-13 FG and 3-3 FT.  No Wroten should mean even higher MCW usage and minutes.  Which could be a good or bad thing…

LeBron James He’s back!  The king is back!  All is right in Cleveland!  Anddddddd, they lost to the Suns…  BronBron looked sharp though, shooting 11-18 FG (3-8 3PTM 8-13 FT) for 33/7/5/1/0.  He had a nice +4 while…

Kevin Love …is so friggin’ terrible.  Boosted his career numbers by being on a bad T’Wolves team!  Shoulda given more rock to Corey Brewer!  9/9/0/0/1 on 3-11 shooting in 27 +/- -20 minutes.  Sure it’s a Suns team that likes to go small, but they made Love’s numbers go even smaller!

J.R. Smith Sometimes ya hot, and sometimes ya not.  And this ThrAGNOF was hot!  10-19 FG for 29 Pts including 8-14 from deep.  Still wasn’t enough for a W.

Markieff Morris M-V-P!  M-V-P!  35/7/1/1/0 on 15-21 FG with a couple of treys.  Unguardable!  LeBron wasting all that energy on O gave him a tiny d.

Miles Plumlee As Slim mentioned on the Pod yesterday, Brandan Wright is getting his minutes at C (13 last night) and it’s death blow to the elder Prof. Plum.  3 minutes off the bench.  Youchie.

Alex Len Doesn’t help that Len played a TON of minutes.  37 for 13/10/3/1/1 on 5-8 FG and 3-4 FT.  Back-to-back 30+ minute games and 3 straight over 29.  Lensanity!

Andrew Bogut – Started at C against the Jazz, did virtually nothing in 26 minutes, Marreese Speights played 22 minutes off the bench for meh, and David Lee had the nice line, going 10/8/4/2/2 in a rainbow in 24 minutes.  Now, Draymond Green only played 24 minutes as well which certainly won’t continue, especially when you factor in the Jazz play three Cs at PF & C more or less.  Still not buying any Warriors front-courter other the #Occupy.

Rudy Gobert You don’t start me, no problem!  32 minutes for 16/11/4/2/3 on 4-9 FG and 8-11 FT.  Absolutely ridiculous.  And on top of it, Enes Kanter starts and plays 32 minutes with Derrick Favors playing 30.  It’s a three-headed beast, and while I’m higher on Gobert than coming into the night seeing this distribution, Trevor Booker had a stomach issue and sat out.  Not that he’s a big factor or anything, but that’s maybe 10 minutes to cut out somewhere…

Kobe Bryant/Nick Young/Wesley Johnson/Ronnie Price/Carlos Boozer – The Lakers need to change their team name to The Labradoodles.  These schlubs for a combined 9-55 from the field.  And yet the Heat still BARELY won.  Although they definitely have a good reason…

Tarik Black – He’s not particularly special, but I liked his motor and I think sticks with a 20ish minute role for deep leaguers (cough, me in REL) even when everyone is healthy.  9/9/2/2/0 last night, and I think could be a dubdub threat.  It’s at the cost of no blocks and bad FT%, but I’m keeping an eye on the minutes there.

Jordan Hill – Who Black really impacts, and Hill “might have” hyperextended his knee last night which could give Black some extended run.  The Lakers will find any reason not to play Hill in a bigger role even when he’s healthy, and maybe Hill just can’t handle it…  12/6/0/0/0 last night, and firmly behind a lot of the hot young bigs emerging even if he doesn’t miss time.  Like…

Hassan Whiteside …man, how many teams passed on a chance for this guy?!  I’d guess 29!  15/9/0/0/5 on 7-9 FG and I’m all-in now with the masses.  He’s a monster.  I’d still take Gobert over him but vs. Jamba Jusuf Nurkic is totally needs based.  Might have played a few more minutes if not for 2 early fouls too.  That’s the big knock on him is the high foul rate, but high projections for Whiteside’s blocks ROS seem pretty warranted after watching him last night.

Dwyane Wade Left with a strained hammy.  He said it’s not as bad as the one that cost him 7 games earlier, but it’s gramps Wade we’re talking about.  Certainly will be out tonight and it’s why you can’t trust him down the stretch.  Not that I’m saying anything new.

Mario Chalmers – Pick him up!  Owned in 54% of Yahoo leagues late last night, Hearts of Chalm was dropped in a ton of leagues and is a must-own for when Wade is out.  19/3/8/2/0 last night and always ballin’ without King Koopa hogging the ball.

DeMarcus Cousins Quaddub alert!  32/16/9 with 9 TO.  Why wouldn’t his best game – minus the TO – on the year be against me in the REL?

Rudy Gay A big reason Cuz went usage-hangry.  Hurt his knee, and already had an MRI that revealed nothing but a strain.  I’d guess he misses at least one game, but looks like we dodged a big Gay bullet.

Derrick Williams – Thrust himself into the Gay void for 12/10/2/2/0 in 36 minutes.  Meh.  No way I would stream him for the Kings next game on Friday…

Ben McLemore Took a shot to the eye and didn’t return in OT.  It was a nice shiner, so he might miss a game.  Nik Stauskas or Ray McCallum might get a fluky batch of minutes if Ben Mac is out.

Tyson Chandler Rolled his ankle and he’s old.  He stayed in the game, but could easily swell into a kankle situation by tomorrow.  Stay tuned to see if he suits up.

Rajon Rondo This is getting comical.  Has a fine game (21/5/7/4/0) but ANOTHER o-fer at the stripe?!  0-3 last night, and has fallen below making 1/3 of his FTs.  Granny shot time?

Monta Ellis – Whoa, dimebag alert!  Who woulda thought Ellis would be slingin’ dimebags over Rondo?!  28/4/10/4/1 last night with a couple of treys.  One of Ellis’ best on the season.

 

Streamers/Cheap Daily League Picks:

Greivis Vasquez (8% owned) – Ewwwwww!  I just recommended a Twerp…  But he’s had some decent games lately off 16/3/4/1/1 last Monday night.  You know I like to start with guys against the Sixers, and even though Wroten is a TO factory and is out, JaKarr Sampson is now the backup PG for junk time and is even clumsier.

Bismack Biyombo (2% owned) – It’s almost become a credo of the season that you should except big games from your post guys against the Spurs!  Off his best game of the year going 14/11/1/1/1 against the Knicks, the Spurs don’t really have any stretch bigs in their rotation except Boris Diaw (and I guess Matt Bonner, but he’s barely playing lately), so I see a healthy dose of the Bismack tonight.

 

Thanks for dropping by, and good luck to your squads on a busy Wednesday!

    HI,

    JB I stay up for your post every night! love your puns and your enthusiasm.

    I’m currently 5/11 in my ROTO league.

    My team is currently as follows:
    PG: Lawson SG: Oladipo G: Collison SF: Hayward (traded carmelo for him =D) PF: Sully F: Favors
    C: Alex Len C: Roy Hibbert Unt. Hassan Whiteside Untl: wesley matthews
    Bench: Mason Plumlee, Zaza, Al Jefferson

    Im currently 4th place in 3’s and 4th place in rebounds, which i expect to go up in due to all my center additions.

    My question is should i drop Zaza for chalmers? and play him whenever is needed or should i pick up CJ miles for his 3’s?

    • Clifford Young says:

      @Clifford Young:

      other big names on the waiver wire: JR smith, Wilson Chandler, Jae Crowder, Avery Bradley, Enes Kanter

        @Clifford Young: Thanks so much for reading mn! I try to get em out around 3 AM ish haha. Def take a little longer sometimes… Well the trade rumors don’t help his value since he’s likely going somewhere else, but I think Wilson hits your needs the best. Alhtough Chalmers is a mighta good add short term while Wade is out

        @JB Gilpin: damn jb have u heard the news bout Brolo moving to Miami? That’s f-ed up! Lotta people picked up whiteside(including myself) in the hopes of improving their rebounding/blocking/fg%, if this pushes thru i’m gonna hate miami! I hope they don’t reach playoffs! LOL

              @DANTEGREEN: Hah I’m lame, don’t really have one. I was die-hard Hornets growing up outside of Charlotte, but when they moved I didn’t really pick up a new one. I live much further from Charlotte now, so not swept up in hornets fever like I had hoped! I blame Lance Stephenson!

    1. pulled the trigger on my lowry+mgasol for kd+boozer (who i will drop asap). the thought of pairing KD and steph was too much to pass up!

    2. do you suggest holding onto aldrich or is his spot streamable for the likes of ilya, waiters, etc. in a 14m/9cat

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @hamtime: 1. Cool yup it was a toughie but I ended up liking KD side. 2. Probably streamable, tough to know for sure with the KNicks on a one game week

  4. Blue says:
    (link)

    Is Markieff a sell-high after this game? Would you trade him for someone like Blake Griffin or Wes Matthews?

    • Chicken Dinner says:
      (link)

      @Blue: If you can get Blake, yes, and hurry.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Blue: Yeah def would want Blake, would likely take Matthews unless fits a surplus of needs

  5. Guile says:

    JB, who would you rather own rest of season…

    Whiteside, Len, Middleton, David Lee, or J. Hill?

    Thanks

      @Guile: Between Whiteside and Len for me. I’ll lean Whiteside. Big man segment coming on today’s pod!

  6. LOLER says:
    (link)

    I know you guys are about to release your ‘Big Man Analysis’ pretty soon but just to throw it out there, who would you start more – Bogut, Amir Johnson, or Jordan Hill?

    I know Bogut is a little bit of a use it or lose it guy and Amir Johnson has just been schlubby the whole season. Jordan Hill showed signs of how he CAN be good if he is given the ball and the playing time to do so. God knows what the reasons are for that team not to be giving him the ball nor the minutes. Kobe… *cough* I’m more like Amir > Bogut > Hill right now that Bogut is somewhat healthy. I have Little Plum and the Bosnian Boogie on my lineup and I will just roll them out.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @LOLER: Yup on the Pod today! Sadly it’s Amir Johnson to me even though he’s low volume, don’t like Hill might be hurt. I like your order and def like the guys you have over those 3

    I need help with assists.

    I offered my Dirk for his Bledsoe? good offer?

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Scort: Yeah you know what I usually wouldn’t but they’re indeed pretty close and you get a need addressed. I think it’s a great offer

    Should I drop Calderón for Larkin? In need of treys, steals, and assists.

      @TOPSZN: Ugh. I’m not a huge Larkin fan and def not a Calderon fan… Sure why not, I wouldn’t mind it, Calderon is such hot garbage

      • TOPSZN says:

        @JB Gilpin: or should I drop Jae Crowder for him LOL I know you guys aren’t too crazy about Crowder but I think the mins are there.

    (link)

    hey hey nice post. picked up mo a few days ago because in need of some PG stats. had to do a double take when i woke up to see he dropped a 50 burger. was not expecting that to say the least.

    so i’ve recently traded chalmers for MKG which paid dividends pretty much straight away. would you hold chalmers once wade gets back? or is he safely waiver wire fodder?

    • patrick says:
      (link)

      @patrick: *traded MKG for chalmers, clearly

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @patrick: Haha, umm I would give Chalmers a few games when Wade is back, maybe they scale back Wade’s minutes finally. Mo with a 50 burger was so nuts!

        • patrick says:

          @JB Gilpin: solid. thanks.

    Drop Wroten for G.Henderson?
    Wroten is valuable but killing my %. I could use some 3’s however.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @I am the Walrus: With Wroten hurt a few games I’m fine losing him for Hendo then you’ll prob be able to get him again

  11. Shaft says:
    (link)

    im in a little bit of a predicament. i was about to drop Jack for Gobert the other night but then Jrue rolled his ankle and got me all nervous. the good news is gobert is still floating on the wire. so is whiteside.

    my team is (8-cat, 10-teamer):

    G: Lillard, Holiday, Knight, Rubio, Jack
    F: Durant, Draymond, Favors, Covington
    C: Boogie, Favors, T. Chandler, Nurkic

    do you still like Nurkic over Gobert? Or should i swap them out? Or do you think Holiday will be fine and its cool to drop Jack and grab Gobert for him?

    i offered a bunch of different Jack + Chandler trades but no one is biting. was thinking of offering Lillard + Favors for Curry, then grabbing Gobert. Is that giving up too much or worth it? Or would you do T Chandler + Jack for G. Hayward?

    WWJBD? Thanks!

    • Bye Felicia says:
      (link)

      @Shaft: I’d want Gobert over Nurk. Im not panicking about Jru, I own him everywhere

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Shaft: Def a tough call owning 2 of Gobert Nurk and Jack. If Rubio was healthy right now I’d have no concern losing Jack. I still think it’s Jack out for the bigs though, they’re just too valuable. I think I would just grab Gobert now rather than risk waiting on 2 for 1s and losing him, I dunno if Curry is enough for giving up Lillard or Favors too

      • Shaft says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Given that Holiday is out I feel like I need to hold Jack now since the PG wire is so bare. If Jack is gone i be forced to drop someone for Evan turner (gross). And I don’t have any other G eligible guys until Rubio is back. Would you grab Gobert for Nurkic? Is playoff schedule the tie breaker between to the two?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:

          @Shaft: Nah I’m not thinking that far ahead I’ll lean Nurk

    OK so trying to tweak my team here. looking to add assts and REB

    some possibilities I’m looking at here
    1) Ibaka and Oladipo for Drummond and Knight
    2) Ibaka and Affolo for John Wall, then pick up whiteside
    3) harden and Ibaka for Boogie and wall

    Was hoping to get some thoughts from all on this as I am still a novice…thanks Razzball

        @Jay: You don’t need Wall. I wouldn’t move Beard dude. He’s ridiculous in the 2nd half every year. This is his career year, don’t do something you’ll regret later.

    Hello!
    Ok so here is my team: 9cat H2H
    Harden, Lawson, Knight, Teague
    THarris, JJohnson, KieffMorris, RCovo
    Bosh, Gortat, Nurkic, Whiteside, MasPlumlee

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Nurkic for President: Hey man! Ugh they’re in the basement now. Wouldn’t move Harris at this point. Love your backcourt so I dunno what Gortat would really bring you and don’t really see a sell high to go with him unfortunately…

      • Nurkic for President says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Thanks! I’m pretty happy with how my backcourt turned out this year. I tried to sell THarris and Gortat for Wes Matthews +1, owner didn’t bite. Thinking about Kieff and Gortat instead. Is that too much?

        @JB Gilpin:

        You just ranked Rose first. I, um, uh…damn, son. Is there some Carolina-Memphis connection I’m not aware of?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Joe: Yeah I kinda regretted it as soon as I hit submit. Depends on what kind of consistency you need… Another factor is if MCW gets a minor injury at all or if his shoulder bugs him again, they’ll sit him a long time

        @Clos: Yo! Not Crowder, seeing what I’m worried about with his game tonight. With Noah maybe hurt I’d have Taj but barely over Len, liking what Len is doing

    Trade Sullinger and Parsons for Bledsoe? Sullinger is on my bench, so it would essentially be a Blodsoe/Parson’s upgrade while losing some depth in case of injury.

    Any input on Chandler Parsons? I’m getting pretty nervous he’s not going to turn it around. The Rondo trade has really messed with his play when I thought it might even help him get more open looks at 3ptm.

    The Kawhi owner in my league isn’t really too big on him, and I’ve been thinking of making an offer. There are a ton of great FA’s in my 8 team league like Covington, Whiteside, Gobert, Rolo, G. Hill, Burke, Bogut (I think you get the idea).

    My team’s strengths are 3ptm, FG%, FT%, Stl, Assists, Points, Blocks. I’m weakest in Rebounds and TO’s and thinking of punting those. Anyone on my team you can see as a wrong fit that I should try to move? Worth it to try for Kawhi with Parsons and Alphabet or Nurkic or am I not really helping myself too much. I could look towards the playoffs and try to move Kieff, but he’s actually pretty similar to Kawhi but with better precentages, less 3’s, rebounds, and blocks.

    My Team:
    PG: Teague, Dragic, Knight, Rubio
    SG: Hayward, W. Matthews, Antetetkounmpo
    SF: Durant, Parsons
    PF: Millsap, Ibaka, Kieff Morris
    C: Nurkic

    His Team:
    PG: Lillard, Parker
    SG: Klay, Kobe, Meeks,
    SF: Kawhi, Wilson Chandler, Tyreke,
    PF: A. Davis, Z. Randolph
    C: Pau Gasol, Dieng, Jordan Hill

      @Real_Cigs: League is 8 Team / 9 cat H2H / with daily line ups.

        @Real_Cigs: Let’s see, yeah I like your first thought – Parsons +Anteok for Kawhi. I see why boards are a punt…. He doesn’t really have an interesting anti-REB big so I like that offer the most. Nurkic actually doesn’t fit as much since he’s a big boarder… I’d throw him either offer.

    Hey guys, how’s everything?

    As you said, Chalmers is dropped in our 14-team 9 cat h2h league.

    Is he really worth picking up for ROS?

    I have Stuckey, Brewer, and Mo Williams.

    Who should be dropped first?

    Thanks

      @ABulldogs: ROS – maybe not, but short and medium term I like him. Can lose Stuckey fairly easily

    Straight up question. Parker or Jack ROS?
    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      @tokyofantasy: Wow, yeah Jack. I think he plays more games and more minutes

      • tokyofantasy says:

        @JB Gilpin: Now that Jack may be traded, Parker seems like a keeper. Thanks nevertheless. Am sure will come back for more!

          @tokyofantasy: Yeah I guess BKN is fine having no PGs… I mean, Darius Miller? Haha.
