With significant court time of 34 minutes (he had previously been averaging a mere 22:30 MPG), Kris Humphries scored 14 points, 21 rebounds (6 offensive and 15 defensive) and 1 block. I think Kris will have a very productive season, both for his own team and for your fantasy teams. That’s not really an outrageous statement, but he still remains unowned in 18% of Yahoo! leagues. If he is on your waivers, you absolutely grab him, even in ten team leagues. If you can lure him from an owner who thinks he is able to ship Humphries off based on this performance, I would certainly make that trade. I do not think this is a one and done deal.
Arron Affalo – In over 40 minutes, he produced 19 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 1 steal, and 1 block. He has thus far been producing 16.2 PPG, 4.6 RPG, and 1.6 APG, so hopefully this is the sign of better things to come.
Etwaun Moore – He also played for over 40 minutes, but had a less impressive performance, going for 8 points (1-5 from beyond the arc), 2 rebounds, 1 assist, and 4 turnovers.
J.J. Redick – Poor shooting (3-12 FG, 0-4 3PA) for 10 points, but he also generated 9 assists. Feces in one hand, gold in the other, which really only works in you are walking your dog in Fort Knox.
Keith Bogans – Deeper leagues have to sometimes consider guys like Bogans who give you games like this: 0 points (0-4 from beyond the arc), 3 rebounds and 3 assists. This is probably one of a thousand reasons not to be in a 20 team league.
Brook Lopez – Had a great scoring night (9-18 FG for 20 points) and 3 blocks, but only 3 rebounds.
Deron Williams – I always appreciate versatility, so when I see 17 points, 7 rebounds, 7 assists, and 2 blocks, I share that with you. It’s not like it’s practical information – where are you going to get Deron in any active league – but sometimes Deron owners like to smile. Brighten the world with your smile, then.
Josh Smith – The good: 13 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 blocks. The bad: 5 turnovers. The ugly: 0-4 for free throws, and he’s only 2 made all season. I think he is taking his free throws at one of those moving hoop games at Chuck E. Cheese.
Kyle Korver – If memory serves, I may have poo-pooed Kyle Kennedy Korver, but he was the Grand Dragon of the Realm last night with 7 points (2-6 from downtown), 5 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks and no burning crosses.
Louis Williams – Only played 19 minutes, but scored 11 points (3-5 from deep), 2 assists, and 1 steal. He’s probably one of those guys you want to drop all year but never will.
Matt Barnes – Zzzhuh? What? Barns? I never touched any sheep. Huh? Matt Barnes? Oh, he had 10 points, 7 rebounds, 1 assist, and 2 steals.
Chris Bosh – Just curious, but what do you folks make of a line like this: 22 points (.667 FG%), 8 rebounds, 0 assists, 0 steals, and 0 blocks. If you see that, are you happy? I mean, he gave you a bucketful of points and generous rebounds, but nothing else.
Udonis Haslem – Haslem? I barely know ’em. With 5 points, 1 rebounds, 1 assist, and 2 blocks, there’s no need for me to know ’em.
Zach Randolph – I was feeling single, seeing double double, ended up with 18 points, 12 rebounds, 1 assist and a whole lotta trouble.
Rudy Gay – Happy Rudy scored 21 points (including 2 threes) with 8 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 steals, and 2 blocks. If you own Rudy, you’re gay, too.
Tony Allen – Started but did not make it to 15 minutes, finished with 4 points and 1 block. After the game, Miami sent him to AAA New Orleans to work on his swing.
Wayne Ellington – Saw 27 minutes of the hardwood and performed for 25 points (7-11 from downtown), 1 rebound, and 3 assists. Speaking of hard wood, the 1% of people that own him have amazing oak floors. For the 99% of you that don’t own Ellington, you don’t need to pick up Ellington; he won’t do it again. Just another example of the one percenters being out of touch with the rest of us.
Anderson Varejao – A somewhat ho-hum game with 6 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists, and 2 steals. James Redacted advised you to sell him on Friday. He’s a smart lad and I will remind you whenever he says smart things.
Alonzo Gee – Gee whizzed on the floor for 18 points (only 2-7 from downtown, however), along with 1 assist and 2 steals.
Kyrie Irving – 20 points (2 threes), 4 rebounds, 5 assists, 1 steal, and 4 turnovers and averaging 4.1 turnovers per game. He’s also averaging 2.0 threes per game, which is why you put up with the turnovers.
Daniel Gibson – He was a bit sloppy from downtown (1-5) but still finished with 16 points, 5 rebounds, and 1 steal.
Serge Ibaka – He’s “only” been averaging 3.3 blocks per game, but I thought he could do better, so I am happy to see his 7 blocks from last night. He also had 14 points (including 0-2 from downtown for some reason) and 7 rebounds. He has scored at least 14 points and 2 blocks in the past five games and is ever so slightly justifying his steep draft price.
Russell Westbrook – Typical Westbrook: 27 points (4-6 from deep), 10 assists, 6 rebounds, and 4 steals. Atypica: 8 turnovers. In his defense, Detroit has been so bad Westbrook took pity on them. Not really.
Kevin Martin – Pretty solid game of 16 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals.
Travis Outlaw – Not sure we’ve mentioned him this season, but he managed 11 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 blocks. He was playing in place of…
DeMarcus Cousins – He confronted a sports announcer and was suspended for two games Aunt Commissioner. He will not play tomorrow (Tuesday).
Jason Thompson – A nice surprise for fantasy owners as he played in Cousins’ absence, scoring 15 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, and 1 block.
Chuck Hayes – Charlie played 28 minutes for 6 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 steals, and 1 block.
Dwight Howard – The monster earned 23 points (a disappointing 7-13 FT), 18 rebounds (6 Off, 12 Def), 3 assists, 2 steals, and 3 blocks. You knew going into owning him that he would hurt your free throws, but you did it for production like 18 boards and 3 swats.
Metta World Peace – Ron Artest shot 4 of 8 from behind the arc to score 18 points. He also had 5 rebounds and a steal.
Jordan Hill – Despite only playing less than 20 minutes, he still managed 4 turnovers, 8 points, and 7 rebounds.
