Superman is here!  Superman is back in the building!  Dwight Howard got his revenge in Houston with an absolutely monster game.  I’m just here to remind everyone that Howard is still an elite big man, especially on defense.  Sure, he isn’t the man, but he is a game changer.  Capela had a good game, but he didn’t stand a chance against Howard’s physicality.  Dwight’s efficiency destroyed them (11-13 for 24 points).

D’Angelo Russell – If you looked at the 17 points and 11 assists, you’d think that Russell had a good game… However, the 7 TOs would definitely change that opinion…

Jordan Clarkson – Had a crazy efficient scoring day, with little else to show for it.  20 points on 9-13 from the field with 2 boards and 1 assist.  He didn’t turn the ball over though, so he’s basically the anti-D’Angelo tonight.

Tarik Black – Had a dub dub in a spot start tonight.  13 points, 11 boards, with no blocks or steals.  Yawn.

John Wall – Led his Wizards to the W with a massive 33/3/11/3/1 line.  He also had 3 treys and 3 TOs… I just noticed, but a hell of a lot of threes in this line.

Marcin Gortat – 21/14/3/1/0 – Marcin went HAM on this sad Lakers front-court…  Nothing to see here..

Markieff Morris – He shot 3-14 from the field, but his line had all the goodies.  12/11/2/3/2 – Not bad for an off night.

Dwight Howard – 24/23/3/1/2 – Again, 11-13 from the field, and he managed 2-3 from the line as well.  He went beast mode in this revenge game.

Tim Hardaway Jr. – 33/6/3/0/1 – 4 treys, 12-18 from the field.  I’ve been pushing this guy for a wire in my waiver wire column.  It’s too late at this point.

James Harden – 41/8/8/4/0 – A ho hum game for Harden, as crazy as that is.  He only turned the ball over 4 times, so I don’t see how he could do any more.

Clint Capela – Had it clicking tonight, and put up 22 points and 9 boards on 9-11 shooting and a surprising 4-5 at the line.

Eric Gordon –  And here we come to the reason why the Rockets lost.  He jacks up a lot of shots, and the Rockets don’t do well when they don’t make it. 4-14 from the field with only 13 points.

Ersan Ilyasova – Ersan decided to put up a big game against the Spurs with 25/10/2/4/1.  He turned the ball over 4 times though, and TOs were part of what did the Sixers in.

Dario Saric – Surprisingly, this was an interesting and competitive game through the first half.  However, things quickly spiraled after that… 14 points and 9 boards for Saric, but he had 7 of the Sixers 23 turnovers.

All the Spurs – Didn’t have their A-game going, but they didn’t need it.  Frankly they spread the scoring around so damn well, that I can’t really pick highlight players.  7 players made it to double digits, and none of the Spurs topped 20 points.

Warriors vs Clippers – Even without Draymond Green, it looks like this game will be a cake walk for the Dubs.  Kevin Durant has 12 with 7 minutes left in the 2nd quarter, and Patrick McCaw is actually showing up well in the starting lineup with 2 treys. Blake Griffin is doing his job, but frankly, the Clippers just can’t compete on the same level with no Chris Paul.

 

That’s it for last night, lady and gents!  Hit me up in the comments below!

    Who would you consider the closest in production to Beverly but will a better output in Pts. Bazemore or Seth Curry. I also have Rubio on my team and having both is really hurting by chances competing in PTS but I like all the other things Beverly bring too sooo what to do?

      @Bgrizzle: I’m gonna go Curry there. Looks like he has a long leash in Dallas.

      • Bgrizzle says:

        @Adam:

        I havent watched alot of Dallas games. Whats his stats like when D.Will is playing? Are his current stats up only because D.Will is out?

        • Adam

          Adam says:
          (link)

          @Bgrizzle: DWill simply can’t play the minutes anymore, and they need another playmaker. Curry is their main offense, so I’m not too worried about that.

    sell high on covington or think he can keep it up for the rest of the year? got offered beal and baze, but not really a baze believer

    • Adam

      Adam says:

      @kb: I like Covington, but I’ll take Beal all day there.

    • Bgrizzle says:

      @kb:

      Baze is doing now what everyone thought he would be doing from the start of the season. You think he’s gunna regress back to the start of the season?

      • kb says:
        (link)

        @Bgrizzle:

        not necessarily, it’s just a team preference thing. i already have a boatload of guards/wings and am first in 3s+steals. my hesitance with cov is the ability to provide blocks and boards in addition to that.

        • kb says:

          @kb:

          like if i can get capela from him, i’d be better off i think

        • Adam

          Adam says:
          (link)

          @kb: My strategy is to always trade for value. In this case, the value is very lopsided on the Beal Baze side of things, so you can either fill in what you’re missing from the wire, or just make another trade.

          • kb says:
            (link)

            @Adam:

            I’m not sure I see the case for it being lopsided. Covington has been a better player than Beal over the last month, and equal to him over the last 2 months. Bazemore is nice, but I’m also forced to drop G Hill, M Williams, or Faried for him. if you compare the trade on basketball monster, with any of these scenarios, I’m losing based on their past value. it only comes out as a win if one expects Covington to drop off again.

            “just make another trade” is way easier said than done.

              @kb: Here’s the thing – Covington is closer to being equivalent with Bazemore, than he is Beal. Covington is notoriously streaky, and there’s simply no reason to assume this streak will hold up over the rest of the season. Beal has been relatively consistent when he’s healthy, and Bazemore is a bit of a wildcard, but his upside is as good as Covington’s. Remember, Covington couldn’t even get playing time at the beginning of the year. I doubt it goes back to that, but the fact of the matter is, he’s not that good. He’s posted a FG% of over 40% just once in his career.

              I wouldn’t mind dropping Marvin for Baze.

                @Adam:

                Covington’s steals, blocks and boards have been consistent throughout the year. of course if you track only on fg%/pts he’s going to look bad, but that’s not why you own him.

                • Adam

                  @kb: I’m going to fight you on that one, that just isn’t true. Look at his averages during the hot streak, vs his averages with the hot streak not factored. Season vs last 14 or 30 days won’t tell you the whole story because the hot streak ups the season averages. The thing is, Covington has regressed to the mean, but that also means he will cool down.

    Ivica Zubac or Pau Gasol for March? Sitting in first place and looking at my roster for the playoffs now in H2H league. Who would you trust more in March?

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @MStiles: I’m going Zubac – He’s risky, but I refuse to trust Spurs players to play down the stretch – especially with how injury prone Pau is. Don’t be afraid to cut bait on Zubac though if his playing time drops significantly. I doubt it will though.

    Hey thoughts on keeper league trade?

    14 teams where we keep 4

    Give up oladipo for a 1st round pick? I’m in tank mode and have 3 other 1st round picks

    Currently would be keeping durant, turner and jokic…4th keeper would most likely be Middleton, dunn, ingram or murray

    Thanks!

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Slimbo: Hmmm I don’t mind that deal – Probably with Middleton or Ingram as the fourth. Middleton is definitely safer, but the upside with Ingram is tantalizing.

    Hey man, thanks for the article!

    10 team, fairly large roster so the wire is bare even for only a 10er, standard 9 cat. Favors was dropped, I have a FT punt build, but also losing 3s each week which I guess isn’t suprising. Drop McConnell, Matthews or Gary Harris for Favors?

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @miles proudfoot: I think I’d hold unless you really want to punt 3s as well. I just don’t have any faith in Favors.

      • miles proudfoot says:
        (link)

        @Adam: I think I’m punting 3s and just trying to strengthen everywhere else. What do you think of Gary Harris and Wes Matthews for Nerlens and Kieff? Thanks!

        • Adam

          Adam says:
          (link)

          @miles proudfoot: I like that – Not a huge fan of Nerlens, but Kieff is a beast.

            @Adam: thanks!

    Hey, Adam. Covington, James Johnson, or Waiters ros in a head to head points league?

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Jerry: Covington, Waiters, then James Johnson in that order.

      • Jerry says:
        (link)

        Thanks, Adam. What about Covington or Wilson Chandler? He’s available as well.

        • Adam

          Adam says:
          (link)

          @Jerry: I think I’d go Covington there as well.

  7. Tyler says:

    Hey Adam, how would you rank these bigs for a punt Ft team ROS? Bebe, Willy, Taj.

    Im thinking Bebe > Willy > Taj seeing as blks is hardest to find in the waiver and Bebe is top 6 here. Willy is only not ahead because his good FT percentage wont help much in a punt Ft and he doesnt get good stocks as well more like Kanter lite in pts rebs while Taj is consistent late value with good % and stocks but only average. What do you think?

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Tyler: I kinda like Willy over Bebe, just for the minutes upside, but your point on blocks is well taken. I think you can go either way there depending on need.

    Hi Adam, would you Drop Aminu for Yogi or Tucker? Who do you see having the best long term value

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Tyler: I’d drop for Tucker

  9. Jerry says:
    (link)

    Adam, would you go Wilson Chandler or Marcus Morris ros? Thanks!

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Jerry: Chandler there

  10. Tyler says:
    (link)

    Aaron Gordon or TJ Warren ROS?

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Tyler: Warren – I don’t trust Gordon’s role at all .

  11. Tyler says:
    (link)

    1.) Drop Bebe and use waiver on Zubac in a 10Team punt FT?
    2.) Drop Chriss, Tyreke or Tucker for Darren Collison? Locked for playoffs

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Tyler: Yeah, I’d do that, and drop Reke for Collison I think.

  12. Wen says:

    Hi Adam, I got an interesting trade offer and need your help. Avery Bradley + Will Barton for my Lou Williams + Marcus Morris? I can not decide, because I want Lou’s FT help and Bradley may be out after all star break. I am also thinking I can counter offer any 2 of these (Clarkson, Collison, Lawson, Trevor Booker) for Avery Bradley? Thanks for the help.

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Wen: I don’t think I want anything to do with Avery Bradley honestly. He had another setback and there’s no timetable on him.
