Brandon Jennings

High-fives all around for Jennings and his hot (but maybe unsustainable) start. (Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via Getty Images)

Beast of the Night: Brandon Jennings put up 30 points, three boards, six assists, three steals and a block, and hit three treys along the way to a big line last night. He shot 59 percent (13-22) from the field, 50 percent (1-2) from the free-throw line and had three turnovers. This was a nice bounce-back game from his 7/3/2 clunker the night before. Jennings is having a much-improved season so far, and he’s putting up top 30 averages to date. Nevertheless, it’s tough to fully trust his ability to maintain this kind of pace, and his owners should at least explore his trade value.

Lines for Discussion:
Dorell Wright: 4-11 FG (36%), 2-2 FT (100%), 10 Pts, 2 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Stl; patience

Gerald Henderson: 7-10 FG (70%), 8-10 FT (80%), 22 Pts, 4 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 TO; his lack of threes limits his fantasy appeal

Richard Jefferson: 0-3 FG (0%), 2 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO; don’t say I didn’t warn you

Chris Bosh: 14-22 FG (64%), 2-4 FT (50%), 30 Pts, 8 Reb, 5 Ast, 4 Stl, 2 TO; Bosh (who’s been a top 20 stud so far this season) has a higher ceiling for however long Dwyane Wade sits out

Carlos Boozer: 14-21 FG (67%), 3-3 FT (100%), 31 Pts, 6 Reb, 1 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 TO; he should find stability eventually

Waiver-Wire Watch (four stars = must add; one star = keep an eye on him):
Nate Robinson: 17 Pts, 3 threes, 2 Reb, 10 Ast, 2 Stl, 3 TO (****)
