Beast of the Night: Jarrett Jack posted 27 points, five rebounds, 11 assists, a steal, two blocks and a three-pointer last night against the Jazz. He shot 65 percent (11-17) from the field, 100 percent (4-4) from the free-throw line and had two turnovers. This was a nice bounce-back game after putting up mediocre lines in his previous two games. Jack remains a strong fantasy starter in most leagues, as he’ll rack up plenty of minutes and numbers for the Hornets this season.

Lines for Discussion:
Jared Dudley: 6-14 FG (43%), 1-2 FT (50%), 2 threes, 15 Pts, 4 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 TO; he’s starting to find his way

DeMar DeRozan: 7-13 FG (54%), 5-6 FT (83%), 2 threes, 21 Pts, 3 Reb, 2 Ast, 4 TO; reports of an improved three-point shot were no joke

Andray Blatche: 10-20 FG (50%), 8-10 FT (80%), 28 Pts, 9 Reb, 1 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 Blk, 1 TO; inconsistency will plague him

Paul George: 8-10 FG (80%), 5 threes, 21 Pts, 3 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 2 TO; worried owners can breathe again

Ben Gordon: 8-15 FG (53%), 8-9 FT (89%), 2 threes, 26 Pts, 3 Reb, 6 Ast, 5 TO; a comeback season?

Michael Beasley: 8-15 FG (53%), 1-2 FT (50%), 2 threes, 19 Pts, 5 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Blk, 3 TO; kudos for gutting it out a night after breaking a finger

Kevin Love: 8-15 FG (53%), 4-5 FT (80%), 4 threes, 24 Pts, 15 Reb, 1 Ast, 3 Stl, 2 Blk, 6 TO; if only he’d thieve and block like this more often

Carlos Delfino: 5-11 FG (46%), 1-3 FT (33%), 3 threes, 14 Pts, 9 Reb, 3 Ast, 3 Stl, 2 Blk, 1 TO; please, no concussions…
