From the depth of 90s video games, crossed with the beastly rancor of Joakim Noah (can you use rancor as an adjective?  is that even the right part of speech?!), it’s the Goromotaro!  An epic performance of 20/20 needed a name, but ever since Joakim pulled off a few back in the day, he hasn’t scored 20 points in like… a million years.  Hasn’t yet this year!  Shocking he’s scored double digits in only 2 of the past 19… But I digress…

The way things have looked the past month, Goromotaro might need a name or image change to feature Hassan Whiteside!  Dude is hitting the glass harder than Cheech at a bong-only party.  24/20/0/3/2 last night for his first career Goro.  Not that he hasn’t been close!  Had a 23/16 and a 16/24 in there.  Unreal!  There’s only been 23 20+ board games this year, and Whiteside is two of them and has only 8 starts!  Whiteside has the 7th Goro this year (the others belonging to Kenneth Faried, Zach Randolph, DeAndre Jordan, Andre Drummond, Pau Gasol and… you ready for this…?  Jason Thompson!), and as good as those guys are (well, minus Thompson), I’d put good money on Whiteside being the first with multiple.  He’s also 73% from the stripe his past 13 games!  Getting a little unreal out there, and the 4 TO last night were very fluky – especially one on an inbounding violation that was totally Norris Cole‘s fault.  Cole tried handing it back to Whiteside after he tossed it in during an odd, weird lack of awareness that cost the Heat the game!  I’m pretty sure it was a play ran to perfection from the Larry Drew playbook…  Here’s what else went down last night across the NBA:

George Hill Maybe not so over the hill!  Returned to the starting line-up in those sexy 90s Pacers unis for 20/3/6/0/1 on 8-12 FG.  Hit a trey, but only 3-8 FT?!  Might take your FT% six feet under.  Worth owning in virtually all leagues, nice to see 26 minutes as well.

Ian Mahinmi Had a bad ankle sprain, and it just hasn’t been his year… Likely a lengthy absence, the less-injured Lavoy Allen could be interesting again in deepers when he’s ready.

D.J. Augustin A little bit back down to Earth for 12/2/6/0/0 with only one trey.  Couldn’t handle that George Hill on D!

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Checked out after 3 minutes with a sore Achilles, stayed on the bench for a bit and got worked on before officially ruled out.  Geez, this is what being a total KCP addict will do to you!  I buy in, he plays bad, he plays better I buy in again, he disappears again and I swear him off, then he plays some of his best ball all year then gets hurt.  I need multiple PBRs to get through these KCPs!

Jodie Meeks Would be really interesting in daily if KCP misses a few games.  Only 13/1/5 last night with a couple of treys, but interesante.

Mike Scott Great Scott!  Holy Schnikes!  I just snorted PBR out of my nose!  This dunk over Bradley Beal had Mike Scott trending on Twitter!  I thought it was some Office marathon on TV or something…  Doesn’t do much in his 14 minutes fantasy-wise, but posterizing dunks should become a stat…

DeMarre Carroll Back into the starting lineup as expected after a game eased in off the bench, and was his normal Caroll-ish self for 14/2/0/1/0 with 3 treys.

Marcin Gortat Sure a matchup against Al Horford the way he’s been playing is no easy feet, but the Ten Foot Pole looked more like the Ten Inch Pole with a 12/9/2/0/1 line with 3 TO and fouled out in 29 minutes.  Hey, Marcin, it’s not a slam, ten inches is still really big!

John Wall Tripdub flirt!  24/7/9/1/0 hitting 3 treys.  After 1.3 3PTM a game last year, they’ve been perking back up lately even though he was only at 0.8 before last night.  Coupled with adding 1.6 AST at the cost of only 0.1 TO, Wall’s been studly and even improving.

Jusuf Nurkic The Jamba Jus is back!  Shoved around the Celtics like the Roman Empire!  History slam!  14/7/2/1/3 hitting 4-7 from the field and all 6 FT.  Still only played 21 minutes as he continues to get all conditioned and all, and both teams played small for long stretches.

Danilo Gallinari It is what ThrAGNOFs are, living and dying by the trey!  1-9 from the field, missed all 5 treys, for a 7/7/1/0/0 line.

Jared Sullinger – Somebody get this guy a planner!  Late to shootaround and cost him another start.  Sully still played well for 14/7/4 with a couple of treys, but he’s starting to peeve everyone off, Even Stevens.

Marcus Smart Whoa, Rondo clone!  4/10/8/3/0 in a very Rondo-esque line.  Even in the %s!  Shot 2-6 from the field and missed both FT.  Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery!

Jarrett Jack Slim’s super-villain!  Another couple of treys and a steal for a 24/4/6/1/0 line with only 2 TO.  Beating the Raps too!  His level of play might make him an even more intriguing trade target than DWill!

Deron Williams – Speaking of, 33 minutes (ummm…?) of 11/3/6/0/0 and no treys.  It’s fine if you wanna roll the dice, but much rather have George Hill or Smart.

Alan Anderson – Looks entrenched in that starting 2 role and went 22/5/0/0/0 with 3 treys.  ThrAGNOF!

Terrence Ross Tried to fire up the Craptors off the bench, but twastn’t enough!  23/3/0/0/1 hitting 5 treys.  ThrAGNOF!

Russell Westbrook Dude, after he picked up a block, the on-court mics were catching all his shizz talking smack and it sounded like a Run The Jewels song!  45/6/6/1/1 in a monster game.  Hey, at least some fantasy owners are benefiting from Kevin Durant never able to play!

Serge Ibaka Talk about turning it around!  Was 1-4 from the field with only one block through the first half if memory serves, but hit all 5 shots in the 2nd half with another 6 swats for 13/6/1/0/7.  And another trey!  If these outbursts get the blocks closer to 3, his mix of treys and blocks will be saucy even if it costs you those boards and FG%.

Tyreke Evans Talk about costing you FG%!  5-20 from the field for 11/7/7/2/0.  Meh, sometimes you really do wonder to yourself if the goal is regulation size (or what?)!

Eric Gordon Also laid a brickhouse, but another 7 dimes his way.  Even though neither are PG, the Pels sans-Jrue Holiday are running a solid combo-guard system.  Taking notes yet, Miami!?

Jimmy Butler Beast as usual, but couldn’t score 3 more?!  Only 27 in another close call from my 30-point challenge pick…  Fiddlesticks!  Yes, that’s the F word I used…

Donatas Motiejunas D-Mo, gimme some mo!  Dubdubbed for 15/10/1 hitting 7-15 FG, no treys in this one, but filling in the big man void admirably.  David Robertson just perked up and is like, “did someone say Admiral?!”

Josh Smith – Ewwww, really?  Big line for a 9/13/4/2/2 rainbow and didn’t have a TO.  Shot only 3-11, continues to take treys for no reason (1-4) and can’t hit FT (2-5).  I’m mostly annoyed that a “nice” game like this means Terrence Jones will continue to be babied back into the rotation.  Raymond Felton just perked up and is like, “did someone say baby back ribs?!”

Brandon Knight Whewwwww, better late than never!  Torched the Lakers late in the 4th and in OT to wrap up with a nasty 24/7/8/1/0 line with only 2 TO.  Knight was 2-10 to start the game with no treys!  Ends up 7-17 hitting 4-7 from deep.  He’s so good…

Khris Middleton The Duchess was even better!  21/7/7/3/0 with no TO and hit 7-13 with a trey.  Given this was a cakewalk of a matchup against the Lakers, the Bucks had to rally.  Nice to see Duchess and…

Giannis Antetokounmpo …a big part of it!  25/6/1/1/2 hitting 10-14 FG and 5-5 FT.  Your new Bucks Mt. Rushmore!  Well, for this year at least, we’ll pencil Jabari Parker in as face #4…  Sorry O.J. Mayo!  Although his trey with 0.5 secs left sending it into OT was pretty crucial….

Carlos Boozer – 28/9/4 and I need some booze.  Hit 13-21 and I buy this about as much as I’d buy Enron stock.

Ed Davis Gobbledygook!  As in, gobbled up dem boards!  7/20/3/0/1 and should see good run while Jordan Hill is out.  My boy Tarik Black is officially voted off the “JB illogically supports you” island.  16 minutes of 5/4/1/0/0 as the starter with 2 TO and 1-4 FT.  Welcome back to the pine, Mr. Black!

Wayne Ellington 5 treys in a 19/2/2/0/0 line.  ThrAGNOF!

Swaggy P – Where’s all this Nick Young love coming from?  Had a couple “add Young” queries. 16/3/0/0/0 with 2 TO last night, hitting a couple of treys.  There’s a reason why ThrAGNOF has “NO!” in it!

Jordan Clarkson Ewwww, the epic ups and downs of a raw PG…  2/2/3/0/0 with 3 TO in 23 bad minutes.  If you grabbed him in a deeper though, you know this is one of those ebbs to the flows.

Ricky Rubio Mi amor!  My Latin Lover for 8/3/9/2/0 in 24 minutes hitting 6-8 FT.  It’s not MVP caliber, but awesome to see the dimes and the aggression getting to the stripe!  Of course it helps all 3 Heat PG don’t know what defense is.

Kevin Martin – Kmart making the comeback!  Dropped a 30-burger for 30/3/3/2/0 and 4 treys.  Ughhhh, didn’t like seeing it coincided with Andrew Wiggins only going 6/5/1/0/1, but I don’t have any worries that there can’t be some coexisting canoodling.

Mo Williams – 10/10 getting a dimebag.  Meh, as Rubio builds up, Mo can be left on the flo.

Tobias Harris “Tobias, you no-longer blowhard!”  23/10/6 hitting 9-13 FG and 3-4 from deep.  See, Vaughn, when you start Harris you can keep up even with good teams!

Elfrid Payton Nice bounceback for the rook going 14/6/9/1/0.  Another rough, rough game at the stripe (2-6), but I guess with only the 1 TO you’ll take it.

Victor Oladipo Yikes, another rough one for no-RainbOladipo.  14/6/2/2/0 hitting only 5-21 and 5 TO.  Steals going down, dimes going down, bad playoff sched…  I’m out!

Manu Ginobili – Well, of course I tout his career-high assist rate and he tanks it with 9 dimes in 5 games.  Bounced back with a dimebag yesterday though!  13/6/10.  Can’t really trust the ol’ baldy for much, but a fun streamer.

Trey Burke Another game embracing the 6th man role.  21/3/4 and 3 treys, once again outplaying Dante Exum, which really isn’t hard to do when Exum misses all his shots again (0-5).  Ya know, maybe it’s time to kinda like Burke again.  Akbar is like, “it’s a trap!”

Rudy Gobert As Cromwell would say, “that’ll do!”  25 minutes for 8/6/0/2/2.  Had the rough FT blip that will come his way (4-8), but eschew your inner Cromwell, Gobert owners!

J.J. Barea Meh, 10/4/5 with only 1 TO and no steals (or blocks, duh), but hit a couple treys and I think is streamable for a little here.  Rajon Rondo is likely facing… well, face surgery, and nothing about face surgery sounds like any sort of fun except a face lift.  Doesn’t that just sound… well, uplifting?!

Stephen Curry Save the best for last!  After a slow start down like 40 something to 18, all the sudden the Warriors went beast mode with Curry dropping 51 skittles.  51/4/4/1/0, hitting 10-16 from deep.  Getting warmed up for the 3-point contest!

 

Streamers/Cheap Daily League Picks:

J.J. Barea (5% owned) – I’m going with the above advice, and using the streamble and dreamable Barea!  Don’t worry, Rubio, not cheating on you!  Wasn’t huge last night, but I think does a smidge more against the hapless Kings.

Al-Farouq Aminu (5% owned) – Doubling down on the Mavs!  Solid last night for 12/7/2/2/1 and completed the rainbow on Monday night for 9/5/2/2/2.  Hit a 3 in both, and is at 25+ minutes in 4 of 5.  A wee interesting!  And in what could easily be a King blowout, I like Aminu as a royal value.

 

I hope everyone’s squads had a solid full-slate Wednesday and we’ll catch ya tomorrow!

    Whitesideeee! What a beast. So lucky to have picked him. JB did u know that over the last 6 games(before he blew off tonight) Curry was only averaging .39 from field and .34 from beyond the 3pt line(2.7 per game)! Anyway, I was having trade talks with some folks, which one would you go for:

    A) dirk+mcw+parsons+hibbert = jwall+korver+valanciunas

    B)
    B.1 dirk+parsons = vala+korver
    B.2 collison+mcw = teague+beal

    H2h 9cat 12-team weekly.
    Roster:
    Curry bledsoe collison mcw
    Wiggins
    Kd parsons batum
    Faried nowitzki whiteside hibbert
    ( and 1 weekly streamer)

      @Chumlee: Whiteside is a monster! Yeah I knew Curry was struggling some from the field, but we knew it’d perk up. Crazy though!

      Whew A is a lot to give up. I’d prob do it though in 12 team getting best guy. B1 – nah couldn’t do that, B2 Mannnn, very close. Collison does worry me though in that could be traded. Def helps TO and %s, yeah I prob would do that.

    Great Job as always JB!

    Looks like I traded for Curry just in time 🙂
    Not bad for his first game on my new roster. Now KD needs to get healthy. I say leave him out till after the break. I rather lose him for 2 weeks than keep having these injuries pop up every other week.

    Hi JB/Slim,

    Got a trade question for you. I’m in a 12 team 9cat roto league and I am considering a trade where I give away Al Jefferson and get back Dirk Nowitzki. I need 3ptm and ft% and my bigs are AlJeff, Pau Gasol, Favors, Monroe, Rolo, Henson, and Monteijunas. I have about 9 pts in blks and 11 pts in rebs so I think I am doing ok in those cats. My only concern is FG% where it is very close between teams. I am hoping Dirk’s FG% rises from here on out.

    What do you think?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Chris: Whewwwww good one. Def fits your needs… Yeah I think since it fits I would, Dirk risks some DNPs but Al has had injuries past few years

    9 cat 12 team standard

    Jordan hill on waivers and I could use a big to complete the team: let me know what you think.

    Lowry, ellis, augustin, holiday, redick, oladipo, sweet lou, Covington

    Brow, milsap, kieff, nurkic, dieng

    Considering dropping Redick/holiday for hill, Dwight Howard, Ed Davis, Adams, pachulia

    Also got Lin chalmers, olynyk and Cody zeller on FA.

    I’m hovering in the top 3 looking to solidfy squad.

    Thank you!

    Thank you!

      @B-rad: Well first off, passing on Howard. DUnno if you need any of his boards or blocks with Brow. Would rather get Hill who is back sooner, def good losing Redick for him. Any time man!

    Yo jb whuddup.. Commented the other day about dropping len for j. Hill.. Just don’t feel like stashing him for a couple weeks.. What do you think about dropping len for Henson? Then when Hill gets healthy pick him up or possibly ride Henson for a bit.. What do you think?

    (Formerly Down Wit KCP). 12 team 9 cat H2H

    Jordan Hill was dropped, should I grab him over Pekovic, Cody Zeller, or KCP? (yes, I picked him back up after the game on Tuesday)

    I’ve been trying to move Tobias Harris before playoffs start to no avail. Getting desperate. Would you trade him for Dwight Howard? I have solid FT% and need REB, but I don’t want Howard to completely destroy my FT% either. Team looks like:

    G- Curry, Dragic, Knight, Holiday, KCP
    SF- Harris, DeRozan, Giannis, Barnes
    PF- Favors, Milsap, Zeller
    C- Pau, Pekovic

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dungeons and Dragics: Hah nice name change! Although KCP was looking good before getting hurt last night!

      Nah not doing the Harris trade. Howard might be on minutes limit through fantasy playoffs. Where you at in the standings? i dunno if 2 weeks without Hill is worth giving up Pek but close. KCP injury sounds minor, I think my addiction is gonna hold strong and hold through this 🙂

        @JB Gilpin:

        I’m currently in 2nd place. 2.5 games behind 1st. 3rd place is 1 game behind me. So tight race in top 3 and then it kinda falls off. Thanks for the advice.

  12. OldMilwaukeePounders says:
    (link)

    JB, I have a keeper question for you, my dude. 12 team H2H, no TOs, can keep up to 4. I have a pretty decent squad with some good keepers (Curry, Lowry, Paul). My question is mainly what do you make of Whiteside going forward? Dude is going bonkers right now. I just got an offer of Oladipo for Whiteside but can’t really imagine doing that right now…

    Here is the rest of my team w/keeper potential:
    Batum
    Pek
    Howard
    Whiteside
    Nurkic
    Giannis
    Dieng

    How would you order them for a 4th keeper spot? I love me some Nic Batum, but come one, son. He has to start getting it going for my Zers.

    Thanks as always.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @OldMilwaukeePounders: Nahhhhh yeah def not taking Oladipo for Whiteside. I think Whiteside can keep owning, love seeing the big minutes and still playing well/avoiding fouls

      Gotta be Whiteside for your 4th. Batum and Giannis are close. Pek is locked in Minnesota for a while so can’t go Dieng, even though I like him down the road. Any time man!

    JB, I just need some mid season thoughts…

    12 team, 7 cat league – Butler, Lillard, Ibaka, Millsap, M Gasol, #ODG, Dieng, Sully, Wiggy, Augustine, Tucker, Barnes, Ma. Plumlee, Roberts, Galloway, G Hill

    Im currently sitting in 2nd, and if this week ended today, id be in first by a few games. Thoughts on adds/drops or strengths/weaknesses?

    As always, thank a ton!

    Oh, and the Wolves/Heat highlights on sportsceneter were ridiculous last night. Wolves won and every clip was heat related. Two words. Media. Bias.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Bryce Krispie Treats: Haha stupid media bias! Tough to not make that inbounding violation look good for the Heat though…

      Man, tough seeing any holes. Maybe I wish you had one more studly PG. But %s and everything else look mighty nasty. If you could turn Mason Plumlee and Dieng into a PG I might think about that, I think Ibaka and his blocks outbursts like last night will be enough. Any time!

  16. Ryan says:
    (link)

    I’m sitting in first place in this one league and am looking to make a move to get a premium keeper next season (something like a 2/3 for 1 trade). We get 8 keeps, how would you rank my choices for keepers next year? (14 team, 9-cat H2H)

    Guards: Westbrook, Dragic, Holiday, DJ Aug, Lou Will, Galloway
    Forwards: Ibaka, Reke, Greek Freak, Ryan Anderson, MKG
    Centers: Vucevic, Whiteside, Dieng, Noel, Gortat

    For me, with my roster as is, a few obvious keeps are: Westbrook, Vucevic, Ibaka, Dragic, Holiday and Giannis

    I’m mulling over the following with my last two keeper spots: Dieng, Whiteside,Tyreke Evans, and Noel.

    To be honest, I think these guys have bright futures, but I’m not exactly sure what to expect from these guys next season (Giannis included), but my thoughts were that I should package a couple of them for a superstar since I can’t keep them all next season anyways. I kid you not that the last place team is like the all-injury squad. You name all of the old/injury-plagued players in the league and he has them. I could see him letting go of Trilsap if I offer him someone that is already good and a promising prospect or two. Question is who should I try to keep and what kind of trade should I propose that wouldn’t have me giving up too much?

      @Ryan: Yeah with your obvious guys there. Def gonna keep Whiteside. Buying in for sure. Evans vs. Noel will be a tough one, I prob would Noel but we’ll see how he looks next to Embiid. Evans+Noel for a keeper upgrade? I’d def try to work something there!

    fun read as always

    do you still recommend Mozgov (vs LAC) over Len (@ POR) tonight? All I care about is blocks and FG%…

      @dom: also I’m looking at my February schedule and there isn’t a single day Oladipo would start for me, assuming I’d always prefer B Knight or W Matthews.

      It’s a 10 team roto league with no games played limit and it might be in my interests to cut Oladipo to have a spot for light nights like tonight to squeeze both Len and Mozgov (or whoever my needs dictate) into my lineup

        @dom: Thanks so much for reading man! Yeah gimme Mozzie bear! Whewwww I dunno man, Oladipo will really help someone. Would maybe explore a Dipo+Len for big man trade

      @Nikko Respeto: Nice man! I remember saying Westbrook and Whiteside were musts! Def like Barea to be better than yesterday. Like Boogie a lot. I picked Jamal Crawford for 30 today on the Pod, just have a feeling. A little worried older Mavs big men might not play big minutes on back to back, so worried about Tyson Chandler. Hope that helps!

    With whiteside beasting, i feel like Favors and Chandler aren’t as valuable to me. and im trying to make room on my team for the Duchess. what are your thoughts on any of the following offers

    1) Favors + T Chandler for Al Jef + (Middleton off the wire)?
    2) Favors + T Chandler for Greg Monroe+ (Middleton off the wire)?
    3) Favors + T Chandler for Dieng+ (Middleton off the wire)?
    4) Favors + T Chandler for G. Hayward + (Middleton or Nurkic off the wire)?

    Here’s my 10-team 8-cat league team:

    G: Lillard, Knight, Holiday, Rubio, Jack
    F: Durant, Draymond Green, Covington, Favors
    C: Boogie, Whiteside, T Chandler

    thanks!!

      @Shaft:
      Really like that team and I would rank those trades as 1,4,2,3 best to worst for you

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Shaft: Agree with JoeJ, I would probably only do the Jefferson or Hayward ones

  21. JoeJ says:

    Trade Ibaka for Bledsoe OR Ibaka for Lowry?
    Team needs AST with Rondo and Jrue on IR and have stacked front court of Durant, Aldridge, Ibaka, Gortat, Whiteside and more

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @JoeJ: Defffff doing the Lowry one first, but don’t mind falling back to e bled given needs

  22. woo says:

    Bass&C. Zeller or Evan Turner&Brandan Wright?

    Which side (ROS)? h2h, 13 cat w/ o rbs, ppm,dd…

    Thanks.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @woo: I’d take bass Zeller side, format doesn’t help Turner at all

    I have a question

    is Drummond worth a keep for next year in a roto league? or should i stick with : damian lillard, giannis, and derozan?

    i like his defensive and rebounding stats but his FT is just horrible

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Michael: Yup Drummo is so tough to own in Roto. I would say it’s him vs. DeRozan, in roto I might go DeRozan
