• (W*) PISTONS VS RAPTORS
  • Mason Plumlee: With Flake Griffin sitting, it’s the point center show in the Motor City.  This savvy Dukie can wheel and deal, pound and confound, folks.  Underrated center in the Association, who by the way has raised his FT% to 67%, which doesn’t sound like much, but up from career average of 56%.  See, old dogs CAN learn new trix.  Shhh, he taught Joker all he knows.  Case in point, 10 assists with only 1 turnover!

  • Dennis Smith Jr.: I will admit that Grizz was hating on this young phenom from N.C.State.  He’s still only 23 years old and perhaps Dwayne Casey will tutor him in ways that rook-hating former coaches *(Carlizzle and Thibs) could not.  Him and Josh Jackson equals high flying wildness.

  • Saben Lee: I didn’t even know what he looked like until last night.  As a touted rookie, he shows strong glimpses tonight of his upside.  Keep watching this young bloke.  Kick the tires and light the fires.  A well-rounded line shows methodical, efficient play coming from a 6’2″ guard.

  • Kyle Lowry: Kyle is grinding this year with a reduced depth in Canada.  His tenacity, efficiency and heart are top-notch.  Love the nine FTA.

  • Norman Powell: Stormin’ is taking the beach and securing the perimeter!  Robust line to follow a week of 30, 17, 24, 11, 31, and 29 points.  Norm is starting to click on that high rev.  Ride him, consider a trade before he is a house-hold name if a less savvy manager doesn’t know what they got.

  • T.J. McConnell: Messed around coming off the bench!  Ohhhhhh Thomas John! And he did so with 10 steals!  In fact, he had nine steals in the first half.  All hail the efficiency Stud of the Association.  Note*: I was smart enough to have traded him away last year for one Juan Toscano-Anderson in dynasty.  8-for-8 FG and a block on top is a juicy masterpiece he will one day tell his grandkids about.

  • Jarret Allen: J.A. is thriving in his starting life in Ohio.  No defensive stats, but the rest is clicking.  Raised his FT% to 74% up from 63% last year shows lots of foci for the 22 year old baby bear. Growlllll.  16 double-doubles on the year so far in 35 games.

  • Zack LaVine: In my eyes, when I see a perimeter player make more threes than have turnovers, thats an efficient line for a high-usage guy.  Thus, with 4 and 4, he’s a zen balance.  He has mastered his game and this All-Star is putting up Picassos.
