If you love your ThrAGNOFs (who doesn’t love their 3PT shooters when they get mad hot!), then last night was a Monday for you! I imagine ThrAGNOF-lovers were like Al Pacino watching the NBA last night:
Even the ultimate ThrAGNOF (well he’s must-own, so like, ThrAGNOF on steroids) Klay Thompson fit the bill! Went nuts against the Pacers for a career-high 60 points in only 29 minutes. C’mon Kerr, let him go all 48 and chase Wilt! It was the most points scored in under 30 minutes in NBA history, and a much better movie than 30 Minutes or Less. Shot 21-33 for a 60/2/1/0/0 line with 8 treys. Doesn’t get ultimate ThrAGNOF any better than that!
Yay Klay, yay Klay! Steph has a new calling after his NBA career – Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. How did that not distract him?! Great game from Klay, and this what you get from him. Scoring outbursts, and not a whole lot else. So be happy you’re likely winning Pts and 3s this week, especially if you own some of the other big ThrAGNOF games last night! Here’s who else was notable in Fantasy Basketball on Monday Funday:
Jusuf Nurkic – FINALLY! ABOUT EFFING TIME! 24 minutes of 8/10/1/2/3 on 4-8 shooting. Another 2 TO and 0-2 FT, but a step in the right direction. If you’re a FT punt, I would absolutely spec add him again in 12ers.
Sergio Rodriguez – Again looking good as the starter, going 17/4/7/3/0 with 3 treys. All these guys on fire is gonna melt White Chocolate!
Dario Saric – After disappearing for a while, put together back-to-back nice games, going 17/8/0/1/0 with 3 treys. He’s a rebounding ThrAGNOF – D stats are uber-blah and his TO are too high – but if you want to take a 12er flier, I wouldn’t make fun of you that much.
Russell Westbrook – All I do is triple triple triple-double, no matter what what what!
Steven Adams – Bounced back from a kankle just fine to give me the Adams line I was expecting all year. 12/10/0/1/0 with 2 TO and 2-5 FT. Regression fairies ain’t flying away!
Andre Roberson – A lot of good points in the comments for Roberson as a 12er add, but these are the kind of games that make him tough to be a “must-own”. 4/3/0/0/1 with no treys. In 38 minutes! Klay is like – “look what I can do with less, mi amigo!”
Paul Millsap – Back from a hip to the moon, going 24/5/4/3/0. He fine. And I mean that in the come-on sort of way…
Thabo Sefolosha – Rainbow alert! 6/3/2/4/2 with no TO, but did miss both his freebies. Kent Bazemore played like poo, so it gave Thabo a little extra run. Mannnn, Bazemore has been bad his last 3. I’m holding tight in 12ers, but in shallower, he can go.
Markieff Morris – Man, really bounced back after a prolonged lull. 16/5/1/4/0, giving him a 13/4.2/2.2/1.7/0.5 over the last 6 games, with an 84.6% FT% on 4.3 attempts a game. Someone must’ve made a mom joke before this run…
Sean Kilpatrick – Dude is ridiculous. 21/6/4/1/0 on 8-12 FG (2-4 3PTM 3-3 FT). Why Bobo takes 14 shots while Kilpatrick is this hot is lost on me! #CoachAsshat.
Patrick Patterson – Told ya it was a good night for ThrAGNOFs! 12/9/0/0/0 with 3 treys. Only shot 3-12, but c’mon, it’s Pit-Pat! That was actually the final line in the working title of the movie Patrick Patterson: “Forget it Jake, it’s Patrick Patterson!”
Lucas Nogueira – Hey Bebe! Hey Bebe! 6/3/0/1/1 in 15 minutes. Low end, but seems like he’s getting steals and blocks every game. A taller Andre Roberson!
Marc Gasol – All I do is triple triple triple-double, no matter what – – oh crap, I already used that one! 28/11/11/2/2 with 3 treys in a huge Memphis win. Played 46 minutes too. Remember when we were scared of the foot?! Must have some nice zapatos.
JaMychal Green – +15 in a 2-point win, playing 44 minutes! Well, it was 2OT, so that’s where the gap was… Pretty blah game for him though, going 5/15/1/1/0 with 1-3 FT. Still keeping it Super Green!
Andrew Harrison – A whopping 40 minutes, going 12/4/3/1/0 with 2 treys. Meh. Extra-E Toney Douglas got 8 minutes in his Memphis debut, but just got there, so it could get messy, and not like Harrison set the world on fire since a nice debut as the starter.
Troy Daniels – The sceeeeeeeeeeeeent, of a ThrAGNOF! 29/0/2/0/0 with a crazy 7 treys on 10-20 shooting in an even crazier 44 minutes, including this crucially epic one to send it into double-OT.
I ThrAGNOFfed him in a few RCLs, and went full Pacino seeing this line. “YEAH!”
Well, the “she” being Daniels, and “ass” being a 3-point stroke. All are turn-ons though!
Langston Galloway – The Harlem Renaissance, renaissancing his value! I don’t think I can -ing that word, that makes it an adverb right?! I should probably know English a little better being a “writer”. LANGSTON MAKE POINTS GOOD! 26/1/2/0/0 with 6 treys, while everyone else without a Unibrow on the Pels didn’t do too much. Langston barely had 26 points over his last 7 games, so not much to see here, just a hotshot night.
Jrue Holiday – Sat with turf toe. That makes no sense. Should be wood toe.
Damian Lillard – Holy hell, what a game from The Omen! 30/4/7/2/2 for a rainbow line, with no TO! Hit 3 treys as well. If he shoots 46.3% from the field all year, you’re gonna get some holy water of production.
Maurice Harkless – Al-Farouq Aminu returned after a few weeks out, and played 17 minutes off the bench for 3/3/2/1/1. Erstwhile, nervous Mo owners got a nice sigh of relief to see a 11/8/2/1/1 line with a trey in 30 minutes. “Why you gotta be, so Harkkkkkklessss!” Great comment!
Dwyane Wade – 34 points w/ 1 Stl 2 Blk in a losing effort. This game combined for 17 steals and 19 blocks too, must’ve been a fun one!
Nikola Mirotic – Also got on the D-train, going 18/7/0/2/2 with 3 treys. He had been dreadful the last 4, so if someone can figure out the logarithm of when he’ll have good games, please share it with us!
James Harden – 37/8/8 with 10 TO on 18-18 FT. The TO blow, but this is why you don’t trade him for ANYTHING in a FTM league.
Eric Gordon – Tweaked his ankle, but said he’d be fine. Still got 31 minutes and made 4 treys for 19 points. ThrAGNOF day continues!
John Henson – Keeps starting, and even though he didn’t have a great game, did enough to keep me happy. 8/5/1/1/3 against the Spurs with 3 TO, but nice to see 6-8 FT. On a busy night, I didn’t have much else for this [email protected] game… A lot of status quo.
Frank Kaminsky – 6/3/0/0/0. Didn’t get the ThrAGNOF memo…
Wesley Matthews – WesMatt did though! 16/5/3/0/0 with 4 treys. After a rocky start, has been pretty solid the past 9 starts. The Mavs on the other hand? Aaaaaaa, notsamuch.
Dwight Powell – 32 minutes for 15/7 and a block. Love the run, and Andrew Bogut hyperextended his knee and only played 11 minutes. Small ball center this ish, Dallas! Bogut had precautionary X-rays, but this is Dallas, who have no reason to play vets right now if they’re hurt at all. Especially since they wanna dump him at the deadline. “That’s Dallas!” Might spec add Powell in even 14ers, 12ers might be a tad rich.
C.J. Miles – Still coming along off his injury, or else he would’ve been on the ThrAGNOF bandwagon too! 9/3/1/0/1 with 3 treys in only 18 minutes. Didn’t help the Pacers got absolutely smoked by the Golden State Klays…
Stephen Curry – Bring those dimes up! 13/4/11/2/1 with no TO. Although it’s pretty easy to have a good AST:TO when you are only kicking out to the perimeter and Klay is sinking everything…
Lou Williams – He’s BETTER than a ThrAGNOF! I had to fight that battle the past two years, but Lou is making everyone feel that Sweetness! 38/6/7/1/0 on 13-37 FG (4-9 3PTM 8-9 FT). The Jazz made the Lakers play their game, as the Lakers only shot 5-14 treys as a team…
Brandon Ingram – Slim really likes him, I hate him – a nice Podcast convo this morning – but round 1 goes to JB! Although, we should really not keep score on this, last time we tried it was Nurkic vs. Jokic, and there were no winners… 4/2/2/0/1 on 1-6 shooting in 25 minutes… Was the Jazz though… But it was weird seeing him start the game as the PG…
Rudy Gobert – Monsieur Elbow! 14/17/1/1/5, but after a nice little run at the FT stripe, only 6-11 last night. It’s still been an awesome bounce back after he got tired FIBA legs going into last year…
I hope everyone HAS A GREAT ASS!!!! Oh wait, sorry, still got some Pacino left in me… Thanks for dropping by, and I’m getting the Daily Notes tomorrow as well, so catch ya then!
