Man, off an emotional win beating the Gizz (I hope that catches on), the Pistons go back-to-back and lose in Philly.  Seems like that kind of emotional high/low happens all the time!  Shoulda bet some money on Philly with probably a good betting line against em.

And it was pretty easy to see how Detroit lost with Reggie Jackson (4-17), Jodie Meeks (2-12), and Spencer Dinwiddie (2-11) combining for 7-40 from the field!  That FG% isn’t even legal at 17.5%!  That shooting percentage is statutory rape!  But swooning in all cool and ready to rob the cradle was the 44% from my boy Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, the only shooter who could hit anything going 7-16.  Normally the lead for this game would be R-Jax’s trip-dub (11/11/10/0/0), but with 5 TO and that shooting %, he was pretty poopy.  KCP isn’t going to suddenly be a multi-cat stud, but it’s back-to-back 20 point games with a 20/8/2/1/0 line last night and a trey.  What I really like was his aggressiveness driving to the hole, netting 5-6 FT and he’s 7-9 from the stripe the past two games after a stretch with virtually no freebies.  He’s taken 14+ shots in 6 of 7 games and at least 10 shots in 13 of 15 taking a bigger role in the O with R-Jax able to probe (I can only think of South Park every time I hear a broadcast say that…).  Of course the FG% will be a struggle, but if your team build can handle it/if it’s a punt, the low TO and decent steals make him a solid add in the stretch run.  Here’s what else happened last night in fantasy basketball:

Deron Williams – 20/6 last night in 28 solid minutes while Jarrett Jack was crying on the bench in a worthless 21 minutes of 11/3/3.  Still don’t fully trust D-Will even though he should be owned, and can’t use Jack for nada.  I hate the Nets!  I don’t care that this was a blowout!

J.R. Smith This is why the Nets are the worst…  Smiff’s 17 tied Timofey Mozgov for a Cavs team high last night…  The Nets suck so bad!  It’s like the Cavs big 3 could stand around in a de factor DNP rest….  Smiff for 5 treys last night and 5+ in 3 of the past 5.  That said, not getting those sweet steals anymore, so he’s a high-end ThrAGNOF.

Kevin Love Returned from two games of rest for 10/11/4/0/0 with 3 TO and no treys.  Wasn’t he a first round pick?!  Yawwwwwwwn, now I need rest.

Ish Smith Started over Isaiah Canaan, and man – if these two could combine into one PG, it’d be an elite one!  Ish for 15/1/8/3/1 but is a slasher and had no treys, while Canaan for 9/3/4 with two treys in 22 minutes is a shooter.  When our forces combine, we become, CAPTAIN PLANET!  I mean, ummmm….

Robert Covington – Yikes.  He can be dumped along with that toxic sludge that Captain Planet always had as his kryptonite.  3/2/3/1/0 in 22 minutes only hitting one trey on 6 shots.

Robin Lopez Sorry Clyde!  I’m the Goro Nazi!  No Goromotaro for you!  6/6/1/0/1 with 3 TO.  Rolo is filled with the same caramel filling as the candy.

Chris Kaman – “Look at how a real man does it!”  That’s what Stotts is gonna say in the film room this morning while shaming Rolo…  9/13/2, but yeah, can’t do much with it.

Hassan Whiteside The swats are back in town!  12/10 with 6 blocks after “only” 7 blocks the past four games.  Given one of those he was ejected, so it’s just nice to see Whiteside not hitting anyone in the face.  I don’t know if I could’ve repressed the urge to swing at Rolo!

Kyle Lowry Ruh roh.  After that rest really reinvigorated him (too many “re” words!), hurt his back last night and might miss a few more.  Greivis Vasquez was only owned in 10% of leagues late last night, and certainly worth a spec add if you have a spot in most leagues.

Kevin Martin – Trying to keep the Wolves relevant!  14-28 FG (5-9 3PTM 4-4 FT) 37/7/0/1/1.  No Chapter 11 for this K-Mart!

Justin Hamilton – Ughhhhhh.  Came out 30 minutes before tip he would be out with an illness.  Here’s a tip!  Don’t forget your coat when you’re on the road in Toronto!  Well, if it’s warming up like it is here in NC, Hamilton probably got the sniffies somewhere else.  I’d certainly try to hold if you can.  In his stead…

Chase Budinger – …strawberry blonde beard!  I wanna say “fire beard” but it’s not really red and not really blonde…  I’d ask him if the carpet matches the drapes, but I still wouldn’t know what color the carpet was!  19/8/3/0/1 in a whopping 36 minutes and 18 shots.

Ricky Rubio It’s good you got something out of him, but still was passive running everything through K-Mart in a 2/8/8/2/0 line.  Palindrome!  Hit the glass pretty well though…

Nikola Mirotic Dude is a monster!  Way back in Summer League I clowned Rotoworld for calling him a potential superstar, but hell, who da clown now?!  Movie idea!  Finding Bozo!  “You’re the clown now, dawg!”  Rainbowed it up last night for 25/9/2/2/2 with that sweet 8-9 FT and a trey.  I love Tony Snell with reckless abandon, but he’s getting 40 minutes to No Minutes Mirotic’s only 31?!  Criminal!  I guess D can do that for Tibby…

Kyle O’Quinn The Irishman returns the night after St. Patty’s!  I didn’t see anything about an injury for Nikola Vucevic who only went 27 minutes, getting the Irishman in there for 21 minutes of 7/2/2 with a trey.  Only bringing it up in case the Magic tanking brings him back into the rotation (led ORL bench minutes last night).  Would be a good roto-filler in a tight race.

Elfrid Payton Tripdub on the Shelfrid!  15/10/12/2/0 on 6-10 shooting and made both of his FT!  But what I love is that 1 – the 1-2 3PTM.  4 treys in his past 4 games after only 4 on the year up until that point.  Really turning into a big contributor.

Rajon Rondo Rather have Elfrid than Rondo!  Who played decent for 9/6/11/1/0, but SCRATCH THAT!  Dat TO doe!  8 giveaways.  Sheesh.

Monta Ellis – Gets a shout for goin’ rainbow!  21/2/4/2/2, but still kinda meh.  I’ll likely be passing next year, especially if Rondo is still there.  Dimes down to 4.3 after 5.7 last year and 6ish through his career.

Zaza Pachulia Another weird minutes allocation for a C that I didn’t see any injury updates on…  Only 17 minutes of 10/7/2, but barely played in the second half in favor of Miles Plumlee getting some run for 4/11/1/0/1.  Hurt John Henson as well, who only played 13 minutes.  Ugh, another edition of “Are You Effing Kidd-ing Me!”

Steven Adams Maybe my luke-warmness is way off, as the The Big Kiwi went 14/13/1/2/0 last night.  No blocks though, 4-7 FT, and it was an easy matchup against the Celtics.  Plus another 5 fouls.  I remain unconvinced he’s a must-own even in 12ers with Serge Ibaka officially gone 4-6 weeks.  Bleck.

Kelly Olynyk Look who brought the O!  With a capital O!  Showin’ his O face!  Putting the O in a belated St. Patty’s themed O’Lynyk!  (awesome call from a commenter, but couldn’t find who!)  20/3/2/2/2 with 3 treys, hitting that rainbow whilst missing that FT.  3-8 at the stripe.  Eh, still encouraging, but the 3 TO hurt as well.  Like Adams, not a must-own for me.

Marcus Smart Double the Celtics rainbows!  There’s a pot of gold somewhere in Massachusetts…  25/9/5/2/2 hitting an absurd 7 treys.  8-14 shooting with 7-12 from deep?!  Stevens is like an overbearing father to a tween girl, just let her start driving!  I don’t get the insistence on treys-only that I continue to have to harp on all year… Anyway, this game is a mad mad outlier on what he’s done lately, but Smart hopscotches Canaan in the back end of The Fringy PG List.  Which was my unsuccessful attempt at a James Spader thriller TV show pitch…

DeMarre Carroll Whoa, after getting those DNP-rests has evolved into a stretch 4!  16/12/3/0/2 with 3 treys.  I’m picturing him getting into an oxygen tank and going into cryosleep, then evolving into one of those zombie type thingies from Pandorum.

Hawks PG Blowing Chunks – Geez, could a better pair of PG have a worse night together?!  Jeff Teague gets 2 AST to 6 TO in only 23 minutes while Dennis Schroder shoots only 1-12 FG.  Let’s start a slow chant!  Shelvin Mack!  Shel-Vin-Mack!

Harrison Barnes Friggin’ unbelievable.  I’m going against Barnes’ utter waste of natural talent this week in the REL, and he has the game of his life for 25/4/1/1/0 on 11-13 shooting.  Figures.

Andre Iguodala Might be your biggest benefactor with Klay Thompson out at least a week with a kankle, playing 29 minutes for 21/2/6/3/0 and a couple of treys.  Justin Holiday got the start, and while he hit the multi-cat (5/3/5/1/1) only shot 1-6.  Still out there in 44% of leagues, I am a little wiggy for Iggy.

Rudy Gobert Seriously, NBA Defensive MVP.  I don’t care he’s only started however many, not-enough-to-the-dumb-NBA-voters games!  9/14/4/1/2 and the Wiz only got to 88 points.  Sure the Jazz lost, but they’re in every game right now with Gobert’s D.  Although if he makes his 5 missed FT, the Jazz would’ve won!  If he’s an 80% FT shooter next year, he might break fantasy.  He’d be Brow 2: Electric Bugaloo!

 

Streamers/Cheap Daily League Picks:

Langston Galloway (19% owned) – I much, much rather Alexey Shved tonight in a revenge game, but Shved should be must-own in all formats right now.  The Harlem Renaissance had his own renaissance in that shocking win vs. the Spurs and I think can play well tonight.

Zach LaVine (7% owned) – Sticking with the same game, I highly doubt Rubio goes on the second night of a back-to-back, giving LaVine a start against the lowly Poppycockers.  If you are punting or you’re way better in TO, he’s a no-brainer!

 

I hope everyone had a great Wednesday full-slate worth of games for their squads, and see you tomorrow Razzball Nation!

    1. what to do with covington… do i drop him for olynyk?

    2. need 3s, steals, assists and fts – dropping meeks who has failed me time and time again for: foye, t allen (back/back so he might sit), morrow (awesome lately but KD hopefully coming back), crowder

    3. schroeder has been bad lately. drop for clarkson after friday’s game?

    Ugh, Rolo. He’s either smoking too much weed, or not enough. That Hamilton DNP was a KILLER because he was my Ibaka replacement for the week. Iggy was great last night, but he’s a likely rest candidate for tonight. The missed gamed are really marring the end of this season. BUMMER.

    • Clyde Prompto says:
      (link)

      @Clyde Prompto: GAHH I just checked my RCL team and apparently Kanter had to be helped off the court last night and is likely out for the next game. My beautiful RCL team is in shambles. Last week I added Nurk to my stable of bigs that included Ibaka, Favors, Len and Rolo in order to maximize my matchup for this week. Then I lost Len and Ibaka and replaced them with Kanter and Justin Hamilton. I lost Korver and replaced him with Rodney Hood, who hit ZERO threes last night. And Conley is a waste this week on top of it all. Rant over, I need to get in touch with RoLo’s dealer and mellow the eff out.

      • Mike says:

        • Clyde Prompto says:

          @JB Gilpin: Ugh, Hamilton out with illness again. If he’s so nauseous, maybe HE should hit up RoLo’s guy.

    For tonight and the rest of the week, would you rather Galloway or Barton (cheap but efficient vodka brand)?

    • miles proudfoot says:
      (link)

      @Miles proudfoot: also, had picked up Howard for defensive stats to try and replace Ibaka. However news is that he will be on a strict min limit and not play back to backs per rotoworld. What do you make of Taj Gibson? I’m still on the bye week and haven’t followed him all year.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @miles proudfoot: Haha I only drink the top shelf! Gimme Galloway. Eeesh, I usually like Taj, but Slim and I debated on the Pod today what we think his role will be. I think mirotic keeps playing for his offense and Gibson doesn’t play big minutes. Kinda don’t like either Taj or Dwight I would stream other options.

  4. Erik Capoccetta says:

    Hi JB! it’s been a long time since my last comment but I always followed your amazing blog and post. I didn’t comment for so long basically because the team I built (in large part thanks to your tips) has been playing perfectly in the last months….
    We had two huge winning streaks (11 games the first and 7 the second) and were able to finish in the 5th place (missing the 4th just because of the scoring average)…
    Then in the PO we easily cruised into the SemiFinals thank to two sweeps(One to a team which had both Unibrow and Westbrook!!).
    Now in the SF I’m with high probability going to face the #1 seeded team which is a HUGE team even stronger than the one who had AD and RW…..
    At this point I need all the help I can get from players to try my Mission Impossible XD
    Since I got both Knight and Len injured and I used my 2 IR spots to get Marcus Morris and Justin Hamilton (great pickups I think).
    Right now my dilemma is what to do with Robert Covington….he’s been playing awfully in the past weeks coming from the bench, apart of a 24 point game(the only where he started) which helped me get the 4-0 win in OT against Unibrow and Westy….
    Of the players currently sitting on the waiver I’m keeping my eyes on Iggy and Carrol, both playing way better than Covington….
    What do you suggest me to do? Hold on Covington and hope Brown gets back on his steps and begins to start him again or cut him and get one of the above before other owners scoop them up?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Erik Capoccetta: Thanks so much man!

      Yup like those adds too. Damn yeah it sucks Covington has fallen to this point, all on Sixers tanking… I think IU’m going Iggy right now, love the minutes and usage flowing his way with Klay out.

  5. dom says:

    So I’m in first place in 10 team, 8 cat roto and the same team is chasing me in several categories. I built my roster over the past few months thinking it would come down to the blocks category but thanks to Gobert Whiteside and Drummond I have a 45 block lead. I also built a 300 rebound lead but while this all happened the 2nd place team snuck up in points, which I only lead by 57 now. I can’t afford to fall to second in points.

    The second team is a very aggressive streamer with multiple daily add/drops. He has all 6 lineup spots filled for tonight, while I only have 4 even after using my roster spots dedicated to streaming. It kills me to consider this but it might be smart to drop one of the injured Brandon Knight/Mike Conely or Whiteside/Gobert to keep up in games played/points since it really looks like it’s gonna come down to the points category.

    Do you like Marcus Morris for tonight? Corey Brewer?

    Drummond last two games 4 for 6 and 3 for 3 free throws. What is going on. Last night Drummond only had 8 shots the 4 guards took to many shots. If you add in Meeks 12 shots that is 56 shots from the guards.

Excitement and anger are two sides of the same coin. If its a money league or something like that though, maybe increase the length of each playoff matchup to 2 weeks to minimize the impact of luck/rando DNP’s.

    Carroll is hot. J.Hill is too. Asik has been two-cat worthy. Howard may play a few games yet. And I could probably use a big. But who do I drop?

    IT2 would cost me a 9th round pick to keep next year, a bargain. Conley is hurt, and not a keeper, but can one ever just drop Conley? MCW has been just ok, but DAT SCHEDULE. Middleton has regressed, but see re: schedule.

    I’m possibly fighting for my life this weekend, and then come playoffs.

    10-team, h2h, 9-cat.

          Looks like Pts/3s are punts this week, even though it still is early. Same with FT%. So gimme Asik for IT2 and Hill for Redick. Redick will only help cats you’ll struggle to catch up on and you need to win. I imagine those moves boost Reb/Blk and keep TO low and decent FG% helping catch up

    Howdy,
    With your help I’m rolling in my league with playoffs upcoming. AND like everyone else am rocked with player DNPs. B.KNIGHT and IT2 are currently out. I’ve picked up Schroeder and ISH to try to stem the bleeding. I’m thinking of swapping SCHROEDER for SMART (starters mins, multi CAT)….Is SMART starting a new phase ….or fantasy mirage? ALSO, I’m thinking of grabbing GALLOWAY for ISH (Don’t know whether NY or PHIL is the bigger bunch of Circus CLOWNS). Galloway more reliable?
    Thoughts? Thanks for the help.

    • Ryan says:
      (link)

      @Phranque (pronounced Frank): Phranquely, I don’t think Smart is starting a new phase. I’ve seen a slight progression, but I don’t think last night’s performance is going to be a trend. As JB noted Stevens simply insists on using him as a shoot first guard; usually from beyond the arc. He also continues to relegate much of the playmaking responsibilities to Evan Turner who has surprisingly been beasting on my TO punting team.

      Who knows maybe that will be good for him in the long run (developing his shot), but it certainly isn’t helping us out. Smart hit 7-8 threes last night, but I’m pretty sure he’s been hitting less than 30% on the season…

      I like Galloway and think his role is a bit more reliable than Ish Smith’s, but if you need assists I’d stick with Philly’s Ishy PG. I would drop Ish for Smart if you had a steals need as well.

        @Phranque (pronounced Frank): Glad we helped man! I’m with @Ryan: , Smart is more a mirage. Vs. Schroder who has stuggled lately? Ehhhh might go upside of Smart. I’d personally keep Galloway and Ish.

        Yeah Ryan, this is terrible development. Get Smart slashing! What he was great at in college!

    It’s coming down to the wire in Points in my first round matchup. I’m about to drop Sir Covington and am looking to add someone who plays 3 games in the next four days. I’m looking at DEN, NYK, NO, and PHO.

    With Len and Wright out would you add Morris? Other notables inclead Jameer, B. Wright, Barton, Hardaway, etc…

    Thanks for the help man!
    Matt

      @Matt: Yeah I’m leaning Morris too. Think he gets the most run. Any time man!

    would you drop Taj Gibson in a keeper league? He wasn’t playing well before he was injured. I got him for the 9th round this year so I can keep for that value next year. I already have Ibaka stashed as my second round pick

      @Blint: yeah I think he can go. I doubt with all the ankle issues and the depth up front Taj will go in the 9th next year

        @JB Gilpin:
        where do you think you will rank him next year ?

          @Blint: Hmmmm, with Mirotic looking this good and Gasol and Noah there…. Pretty low. Def in the 100s

    Brotha man I just gotta ask, whatre your thoughts on BKnight, Conley and Monroe’s health in the upcoming weeks? Thanks man

      @Dante Green: Ugh don’t like that it was something small then got this bad for Monroe. Knight sounds like he’s improving. Medium concern there, then Conley is prob back sooonest

    Anthony Davis does this to me every year. He’s the most frustrating player to own because he’s so fragile. Never plays an entire slate of playoff games! UGH!!!

      @Bye Felicia: Yikes this was a rough one… Beard as facil hair outdoes Brow! Think that might have to be tomo’s title, a little tweaked

    Wazup JB? Been heeding your advice for 3 years now and have always finished the regular season on top. Never won the championship though. Bad finisher I guess. I currently dominate ft, 3pt and pts. Low on fg, reb, blk. Above ave in ast and mediocre in stl and to. Do you suggest to beef up on fg, reb and blk by getting available bigs like wright and ajinca or focus on my dominated cats and improve ast and to? Korver and m.barnes have been dropped. Ish and ray mac available too. Thanks man!

      @Eazy E: Thanks so much man, what’s good?! So is this a roto or H2H league? I’m guessing H2H, in which case I’d maintain punting the big man stats, but def looking ahead to matchups. Maybe they’re bad in those cats too. Even though he only helps your best cats, I think Korver is too good to have on the wire, especially if you’re in a bye week. Are you playing this week in a tough matchup? That def makes a difference too. Lemme know and hope that helps so far!

        @JB Gilpin: already helps! Thanks! Sorry, forgot to mention: H2H, no bye week, I’ve already got 1st seed secured. Looking more to the playoffs and thinking of potential matchups against either the 2nd and 3rd who are my most likely opponents in the finals. Both are top 4 in big man cats, both>me in ast and stl, both<me in to. Thanks again!

        @JB Gilpin: my lineup:

        G: r-jax, reddick, bradley, brooks
        F: the beard, batum, hendo, j-smoove
        C: dirk, vuc, favors, oly

          @Eazy E: No prob! Yeah with Vucevic’s low amount of games, I don’t think I’m going for big man stats. Plus Ajinca and Wright have uncertain roles once injured guys come back. I still think I’d get Korver for Olynyk then I’m trying to find a way for Ish… I think I’m losing Gerald Henderson for him, I know he’s usually been decent, but with Kemba back, minutes look scary. Good luck man!
