Tobias Harris¬†is going to be immortalized in my fantasy career as the guy who got me through some injuries and LeBron benchings to win titles in almost every league in 2013. ¬†I was on this guy at the trade deadline and continue to ride him into the sunset with a twinkle in my eye.
With LeBron yet again benched like I had a feeling he would be, Harris was a monster against his former Bucks going 13-20 (3-4 3PTM) 30 Pts 19 Rebs and 5 Asts. ¬†Harris hit a monster 3 with 1.9 seconds left to send it into OT and put the Magic on his back. ¬†That kinda sounds like a sex move. ¬†There’s something kinda like that called a Houdini, but I’ll let our friends at urban dictionary or something explain that one.
Here’s what else went down last night across the NBA:
John Jenkins –¬†A guy I mentioned a few days ago as I guy I’m interested in, had another solid game in 33 minutes off the bench shooting 8-13 (3-4 3 PTM) 21 Pts 6 Asts and 1 Stl. ¬†The Hawks played a full line-up, so 33 minutes and that line is very encouraging. ¬†Definitely someone to stream down the stretch, luckily I rolled the dice on him last night in one league.
Mike Scott –¬†I also mentioned Scott in that blurb, who made the most of his only 18 minutes last night to shoot 6-10 for a 17-8 game. ¬†This I’m less a believer in, but in deep leagues keep an eye on him as someone to stream.
Thaddeus Young –¬†Made a¬†desperate plea to not be dropped in fantasy leagues (I’m sure that’s all was on his mind last night) by going 28-8-2-1. ¬†Don’t youuuuuuu, forget about meeeeeee.
Mike Miller –¬†Continues to have solid games with no LeBron. ¬†If only the same were true of the Cavaliers. ¬†Miller shot 5-7 (4-6 3 PTM) with 8 Rebs and 1 Ast but 6 TOs. ¬†That’s not such a good Ast/TO ratio…
Ray Allen –¬†Led the Heat in shots last night with 18 for 23 points, but has recently said his ankle is only 80%. ¬†I think he gets some benching as well, and a lot of those shots go to Miller down the stretch.
John Wall –¬†A measly rebound away from a triple-double. ¬†Been cash money down the stretch.¬† Just don’t gamble that money, gambling debts in the Wizards locker room have been known to go sour.
A.J. Price –¬†The money was good for the Price is right, shooting 8-12 for 23 points in 32 minutes off the bench. ¬†Doesn’t do much else, but if you need some deep league scoring, he’s out there virtually everywhere.
John Henson –¬†17 Pts and 25 Rebs with 3 Asts and 7 Blks. ¬†This guy’s wing span must be… Ok it’s huge. ¬†If I hear a Bucks broadcast make another “go-go-gadget” reference I’m gonna go-go-gadget my noose. ¬†Larry Sanders¬†sat out the 2nd half and OT after a hard fall giving Henson 41 minutes, so if Sanders is out even for one game, Henson is a must add.
Brandon Jennings –¬†Hurt his Achilles and played only 6 minutes last night. ¬†With the playoffs looming, Jennings might be another star player who will get lots of ride on the pine. ¬†Stay tuned, but if he misses the Bucks next game I think he’s droppable to stream unless in a keeper obviously.
Doron Lamb –¬†35 minutes off the bench, while the rest of the Magic bench played a total of 24 minutes. ¬†Shot 6-10 for 16 Pts (4-6 from deep) with 4 Rebs 2 Asts and 1 Stl. ¬†Super deep leagues should take notice, I think the Magic give him some good minutes in these last few games. ¬†We saw how well Harris did moving from Milwaukee…
Andre Drummond – Has all the talent in the world and put it together for a 29-11 game last night. ¬†Still can’t hit a free throw though going 9-17 at the line.
Brandon Knight –¬†Right after I endorse him he shoots 2-11. ¬†Still went 7-4-2-1 for a little bit of help, but c’mon hit ya shots.
Jeff Green –¬†Another tough game with Pierce and Garnett back in the line-up, shooting 4-17 for an 11-4-2 line. ¬†At least he’s getting the shots as the next highest shooting Celtic was at only 11 FG attempts, but still isn’t fully gelling in that line-up like people had hoped.
Reggie Evans –¬†Hahaha a starter with one point. ¬†Just looks funny to go 1 Pt 14 Rebs. ¬†Didn’t take a single FG attempt and was 1-4 from the free throw line. ¬†One-trick pony takes new meaning with Evans in fantasy.
Wesley Johnson –¬†Finally back in double-digits as I had hoped, shooting 7-13 (3-8 3 PTM) for 17 Pts 3 Rebs and 1 Ast. ¬†Would’ve hoped for a little more, but with the Suns not sure about anything these days, you take that game.
Brian Roberts –¬†Had another huge game off the bench shooting 6-11 (2-3 3PTM) 20-6-5-2-1. ¬†Crazy that he got a block too! ¬†Greivis Vasquez¬†played only 25 minutes seemingly a little limited still with that ankle injury, so Roberts is a guy I think you can stream the rest of the way.
Will Barton –¬†A little disappointing in his first start, shooting 4-12 and going 9-1-2-2 in 29 minutes. ¬†I think he can improve on that line so I am holding out hope.
Damian Lillard –¬†Had an omen that he could win this game, but the Blazers just fell short. ¬†Still was a demon to the Lakers, going 38-9.
J.J. Hickson –¬†As I suspected, missed this game with a back injury. ¬†I think droppable in all redraft leagues to stream.
Kobe Bryant –¬†47-8-5-3-4 for a huge rainbow line and 18-18 from the FT line. ¬†One of the top lines of the season. ¬†Way to bury the lead JB! ¬†Hey, if Sportscenter is on it, you probably don’t need me to tell ya…
Metta World Peace –¬†Another sub-20 minutes off the bench with only 14 last night. ¬†Probably would rather a lot of the guys mentioned above over MWP.
Corey Brewer –¬†Wooo another guy I got right! ¬†A huge game off the bench shooting 12-25 for 28 Pts 3 Rebs 2 Asts and 1 Stl. ¬†Must own down the stretch.
Wilson Chandler –¬†So is Chandler. ¬†29-8-4-2-1 in 41 minutes as the starting SF with Danilo out.
Lamar Odom –¬†Averaging 8.5 Rebs in his last 4 with 13 last night. ¬†If you need a Reggie Evans-lite to boost your boards, Odom could be your guy.
The finish line is in sight! ¬†If you have any other questions for your lineups as you win that title, shoot your comments below!
