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.

Jamal MurrayWill Barton was still really good (36 mins 22/8/3/2/2 rainbow!), but Murray got a 22/3/2 line, with 3 treys for a ThrAGNOF line.  Everyone was sniping last night!

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!

    Yeah Ingram got into foul trouble. Ish happens.

    I added Powell in a 12er. Well… I needed a center and I’m not a FT punt. If he got a reliable 30 minutes a night I think he’s definitely 12er worthy. I honestly don’t know why it’s taken this long but I guess he was struggling with his shot. 6 straight games of .500 or better may be why his minutes are on the rise. But I added mostly for those dstats which have been phenominal, all be it in limited minutes thus far.

    Yeah Henson did just enough to not be dropped. He’s like the Sefolosha of bigs. Speaking of which Sefolosha got the start, sending Korver to the bench. Looks like the Hawks are trying to mix things up but it didn’t help last night. I think one of those 3 wings (Bazemore being the other) will only get 20ish minutes on any given night but picking which on which night is going to be impossible.

    Adams looked a little slow but at least he’s out there. Yeah I really hope no one thought he was a .900 FT shooter like he was for the 1st 2 weeks or so. But this FT shooting looks earily similar to Henson right now, shooting way over his norm, Henson will regress at some point too. At least the FG% is there for Adams, the double double almost everynight is there. The scoring is well above expected. The dstats tend come in bunches but it’s tough to trust those while he has a kankle. TOs are down to about 1.0 per game the last 8 or so. Yeah big sigh of relief on my part.

    I’m having trouble buying Nurkic, he looks fine while out there and should have gotten far more minutes. At least they won (but it was philly). And Nurk was solid against Embiid… (5-15, 3 TOs) I don’t know though, until Denver decides they’re out of it I don’t think Nurkic is going to break out.

      @Slim: looking for some rest of season advice, who would you take between Ingram, Gary Harris or Will Barton? No IL 12er, once one is rostered I doubt there will be an opportunity to get either of the others so picking the right one is very important. Thanks for any help!

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:

        @Slim: @Dusty: Yessssss! Slim please answer, post haste

      • Slim

        Slim says:
        (link)

        @Dusty: fine… I’ll take Harris. Ingram probably has some USG issues when LA is healthy and Gary should play more than Barton once healthy.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Slim: Was def weird seeing him play PG though. Agree on Powell if 30 mins, I dunno if we get it though. Isn’t his deal part of your” backup money” theory 🙂

      Hawks wings – wouldn’t a hawk wing by like a GIANT chicken wing?

      Agree on Nurk, but he fits a FT punt right now pretty well…

      • Slim

        Slim says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: for sure he was signed for backup money… But when the 2 starters ahead of him are combined 325 years old it shouldnt be tough to find the minutes.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Slim: Hah no disagreement there. Look out for Salah Mejri though!

          • Slim

            Slim says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: Mejri is 30 and making like $1 mil a year. He isnt getting paid backup money, hes getting paid roster filler money. In my ideal world Mejri starts gets 15-20 min and Powell gets 30. Maybe they can play next to each other for short stretches too.

            • JB Gilpin

              JB Gilpin says:

                (link)

                @JB Gilpin: Was my worry about Powell (Mejri). Not the best matchup vs a wide DMC but vs IND and HOU should be better.

                On Nurk–only holding him coz I have both him and Jokic. Remaining matchups this wk (PHI yday, BKN, WAS & ORL) all have big lineups that play good chunks of minutes. The moment Jokic is read to play, I’m unloading Nurk.

                Agree on Henson…those 2 games vs BKN was matchup based but he did do enough last night (Agree with Slim) to be held. And like JB I do have a UNC bias. Ellington anyone (lol).

                Lastly on Ingram…I did some fact checking for JB/Slim podcast. The 3ball doesn’t look flat at all to me.

                https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xyhf5SsqpY&sns=em

                Although have to admit that Walton playing him at PG last night was definitely not a good thing for fantasy.

                UNC fan defending a Duke player…okay..I’m gonna puke now.

                  Hah Ellington was great in college. Never really translated…

                  Yeah the shots there for Ingram looked OK, maybe it was only a few games or a camera angle thing…

                    @JB Gilpin: Powells early season slump appears to be behind him. Looks like hes about to start earning his money. Hes a great spec add. Im not the only one who thinks it though. Hes gone in all my leagues and his ownership has jumped to 20%.

                      @Slim: The difference being the Nogiera maxes out at about 15-20 min and really can’t score, but yes he should outblock Powell. Powell should beat him everywhere else. Powell isn’t being seen as a streamer, esp for the next 2 weeks.

    My opponent had Klay and Lou, great start to the week…
    Speaking of thragnof, Murray worth picking up again in a 12er? Would be dropping Jeff Green. Belinelli and Crabbe also available.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Zinger: Hah damn, that blows… Def can lose Green, meh I think I would get Beli/stream it, I would put Murray 3rd of the 3 right now though

      • Zinger says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Actually Crabbe and Murray got Wed/Thur b2b and Beli has Fri/Sat b2b. So between the 2 you’d go Crabbe? DEN is going up against BKN and WAS vs POR against MIL and MEM. I’m thinking DEN got the match up advantage?

  6. Not Your Average Joe says:
    (link)

    Yo, JB! So many quick-fire questions on my mind today! 12-team, 9-cat, h2h keeper.

    Would you drop Collison for Sergio?

    Would you try and trade Batum or just punt FG%?

    And would you trade Conley/RoLo/6th for Embiid and a 3rd (I could keep Embiid next year at a 7th round price)

    Team: Lowry, Conley, Collison, Beal, KCP, Batum, Harkless, Millsap, Zingis, Gobert, RoLo

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Not Your Average Joe: Quick fire away! Nah hold Colly. Eh, FG% can waffle week to week, we knew Batum would have ups and downs. Depends on the return obviously. Yup I like that deal! Better draft pick, keeper potential, not giving up much…

    Razzup JB!! Man theres seriously nothing I love more than waking up to some wonderful Razzball posts and reading your daily notes while eating my frosted flakes in the morning. Makes for excellent breakfast material!! You guys are the best man, and I feel like I don’t tell you guys that enough! Haha.

    Anyways, not sure if you recall, but I have that super snake bitten injury-riddled team in my 12 team H2H Keeper league (Lin/Reke/TJ/Parsons/Conley). I know you’ve been on me a little bit lately to suck it up and drop Conley, buttttt I just couldn’t do it. I felt like he still had some trade value around my league, and I was aggressively hoping someone would bite. And then this morning, prayers answered! Got offered Jrue Holiday for the corpse of Mike Conley, and I auto-accepted of course. I guess I came on here to gloat a little bit, but also to get some reassurance from the all-wise-one that this was in deed a decent trade for me?? I know Jrue isn’t exactly the pillar of health either, but I was ready to punt Conley to the wire if nothing transpired. Plus, I LOVE Jrue as a person, and theres nothing better to have guys on your team that you can genuinely root for in more ways than one. I do know that someone else in my league offered that same owner Dragic + Capella for Jrue just last week, is that a flip that I should be considering?
    Either way I’m thinking I’m 2/2 so far on trades this seaon, with Gay for Millsap and now Conley for Jrue :). Anyways, thanks for the help and solid advice as always JB, keep up the phenomenalll work!!

      Whoaaaaaa, glad you held! What a crazy good deal! Jrue def has his issues, but not like Conley was some 80+ game warrior heading into this yr. He’s had a lot of injury issues.

      And yeah, i would take that Dragic/Capela deal too, assuming you’re either strong at PG or OK punting it a little. He hasn’t been all that bad there either! Turning Conley into Dragic/Capela would be a miracle

    I echo a previous commentator’s thoughts on the daily joy of Razzball. Coffee and opinions first thing each morning.

    Love to get your and Slim’s take on The Nets and their pursuit of Donatas. Booker has been a big surprise and fits some steal needs I have. But I just have not accepted any offers with him since I am unsure The Nets see a 29 year old back up as a building block. Their offer sheet seemed to confirm that to me but I could be wrong.

    Probably the best deal that included him was my Porter, Adams and Frazier for his Dragic and Booker. (I do not exactly see Frazier’s future in NOR unless wood toe is chronic).

    Thank you.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Johnc: Appreciate that immensely, thanks man!

      Well Rockets ended up getting them, so I guess the Nets are looking for any cheap upside they can find, and figure it all out later? Agree I don’t think they see Booker as anything but a place holder, but for redraft, I think he’ll be OK.

      Nah on that deal, it’s not awful, but yeah that was a pass

        @miles proudfoot: Probably Henson if needing blocks, but if not as big a need, J-Mike.

        I’d take Kilpatrick there. Over Winslow and J Rich too. i really like his game when he’s not forced to play PG which caused his lull a few weeks back.

    In a 10team I have Lin and Parson in my IL and Warren INJ as well. Should i drop one of them? I’m slipping in the standings and need to catch up to make playoffs.

      @Tyler: Not to mention I also have Rodney Hood and thinkin of dropping him as well. A lot of good FA in the wire:

      JMyke, Ersan, 2Pat, MKG, Henson(waivers), Thabo (waivers), Beverley, Mills, Leuer, Powell, Leuer, Roberson, Jennings, Delly, KOQ, AGordon, Len, Noguiera, Tyson, Nelson

        @Tyler: Yeah in a 10 team league theres always going to be hot players on the wire. I’d lose Parsons for whatever your needs are.

          @Tyler: @Bye Felica: I wouldn’t lose Parsons of the 3. I’d probably lose Warren for J-Mike if you need an all around, or Beverley if needing more D-stats from a G

    Please rank C Zeller, Nurk and Jahlil moving forward. Nurk’s unknown game-to-game PT is all that’s stopping me from picking him up.

      @jb gilpin: let’s throw in 7ft Turkey in there too. I realise yesterday’s monster line wont be duplicated, but outside the one stinker (incidentally when I streamed him), he’s been consistent over the last month. Interested to get your rank on these guys as far as production going forward

        @Lasandro: I like that order. Mayyyybe Ersan over Jahlil, I really worry about ROS PT for Jahlil with Noel coming back, Embiid less mins limits, a possible trade, etc.

    Currently sitting in first place with a 31-13-1 record in a 12er with 1 IL spot.
    However 2nd and 3rd place are making a strong comeback

    Should i drop any of these players for D.Powell?
    1. T.Daniels
    2. Wayne Ellington
    3. Kent Bazemore

    Also Should i trade Kevin Love for Draymond Green?

    This is my entire roster including Bench and IL
    KD
    CP3
    Kevin Love
    Jeff Teague
    Thad Young
    Rudy Gobert
    Harkless
    Avery Bradley
    Sean Killpatrick
    Enes Kanter
    T.Daniels
    Wayne Ellington
    Kent Bazemore
    TJ Warren INJ but nearing a return
    Derrick Favors ( IL)

    Thanks in advance.

      @Peter: Nice start! I’ll start with the easy one, yeah gimme Dray > Love. Hmmmm, I don’t mind the flier of Powell over the ThrAGNOFs. I’d tough it out a few more with Bazemore. I wouldn’t mind dropping Wayne, I think Daniels could have a few more good games

      • Peter says:

        Thank you! Thanks for the help and fast response you’re the man. I got lucky drafting because i picked KD as my first with the 5th pick. Somehow CP3 was still available for my second pick and Love for my 3rd. I guess you can say those are my big 3 haha.

        I was leaning towards dropping wayne too but dont you think the fact that injured memphis players are closer to a return and wayne is getting more minutes and doing more than just shooting 3s and providing points would make wayne the better option?
        Im also really considering dropping bazemore. He has been way too inconsistent for the past 2 weeks. Do you really think he has enough upside not to drop? Its looking like Sefolosha is gonna be taking his minutes.

        Thanks again man.

          @Peter: Hah wow, yeah that pretty unbelievable value! Especially CP3, wow.

          Well same could be said for Wayne. JRich will be back next week, Winslow could push some wing minutes out, etc. I just think Daniels has more short-term upside and both ROS have bleak futures either way.

          Yeah just saw Baze had to get an MRI. I’m good dropping him with an injury explaining some of this downtick and missing the next few. I love that Coach butthole (what we call the Hawks coach) legit said there was no injury yesterday. Ugh, coaches.

          Any time!
