Beast of the Night: Stephen Curry finished with 32 points, six rebounds, seven assists, four steals and six three-pointers last night. He shot 63 percent (12-19) from the field, 67 percent (2-3) from the free-throw line and had just one turnover in 38 minutes of play. Curry has racked up 74 minutes of run in his last two games, which is a good sign that his ankle is fine for the time being. Barring any further setbacks, he’ll handsomely reward owners who bought low or exercised patience on him.

Lines for Discussion:
Anthony Morrow: 5-11 FG (46%), 4-4 FT (100%), 2 threes, 16 Pts, 3 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO; his owners should shop him now

Anderson Varejao: 4-8 FG (50%), 2-4 FT (50%), 10 Pts, 16 Reb, 4 Ast, 4 Stl, 2 Blk, 5 TO; Varejao is averaging 9.8 points, 11.2 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.8 blocks this season, making him a top 75 fantasy basketball player

Joakim Noah: 5-9 FG (56%), 10 Pts, 13 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Stl, 1  Blk, 1 TO; his production has stabilized lately, and since Jan. 13, Noah has averaged 9.0 points, 10.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.4 steals and 1.3 blocks per game

Stephen Jackson: 8-16 FG (50%), 1-2 FT (50%), 3 threes, 20 Pts, 1 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 Blk, 1 TO; he’ll likely gain his starting gig back very soon

Samuel Dalembert: 4-9 FG (44%), 5-6 FT (83%), 13 Pts, 18 Reb, 2 Blk, 4 TO; as a starter this season, Dalembeast is averaging 10.8 points, 10.9 rebounds, 0.6 steals and 2.2 blocks, while shooting 56 percent from the field and 91 percent from the charity stripe — perfect fantasy basketball numbers for a center

Kevin Love: 9-16 FG (56%), 9-10  FT (90%), 4 threes, 31 Pts, 10 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 Blk, 2 TO; Love continues to reign this season

Devin Harris: 8-12 FG (67%), 7-11 FT (64%), 1 three, 24 Pts, 3 Reb, 6 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 1 TO; this earns him the right to be held onto for a while longer, but he’ll likely slump again soon

Waiver-Wire Watch (four stars = must add; one star = keep an eye on him):
Landry Fields: 13 Pts, 5 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 TO (***)

Tyrus Thomas: 13 Pts, 9 Reb, 1 Ast, 4 Stl, 9 Blk, 2 TO (***)

Austin Daye: 28 Pts, 4 threes, 6 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 TO (**)

Ronnie Brewer: 20 Pts, 10 Reb, 5 Ast, 3 Stl, 2 TO (*)

Darko Milicic: 8 Pts, 7 Reb, 7 Blk, 1 TO (**)
