Beast of the Night: Chris Paul finished last night with 36 points, one rebound, nine assists, two steals and three three-pointers made. He shot 69 percent (11-16) from the field, 92 percent (11-12) from the charity stripe and had three turnovers. For the season, CP3 has been the third best fantasy basketball player, which is right in line with expectations.

Lines for Discussion:
Kevin Garnett: 8-11 FG (73%), 7-8 FT (88%), 23 Pts, 13 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 Blk, 4 TO; Garnett is averaging his best numbers of the season this month, and has been putting up top 35 numbers for the season

Chris Kaman: 10-25 FG (40%), 1-1 FT (100%), 21 Pts, 13 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 Blk, 4 TO; Kaman has averaged 17.8 points, 9.0 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 0.5 steals and a block in his last six games (sell high)

MarShon Brooks: 10-15 FG (67%), 4 threes, 24 Pts, 5 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 TO; in his last six games, Brooks is averaging 16.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.8 threes made

Amar’e Stoudemire: 3-8 FG (38%), 1-1 FT (100%), 7 Pts, 10 Reb, 1 Blk, 1 TO; STAT has looked like a fragile shell of himself in the last couple weeks, but the All-Star break should do him some good — right?

Joakim Noah: 3-6 FG (50%), 7-7 FT (100%), 13 Pts, 13 Reb, 10 Ast, 1 Blk, 2 TO; for the season, the big man is averaging top 70 numbers, which is about what was expected of him

DeAndre Jordan: 5-9 FG (56%), 0-1 FT (0%), 10 Pts, 16 Reb, 1 Stl, 3 Blk, 3 TO; he doesn’t double-up often, but Jordan remains a valuable fantasy asset because of his rebounds, blocks and great field-goal percentage

Arron Afflalo: 7-10 FG (70%), 4-5 FT (80%), 2 threes, 20 Pts, 6 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 TO; his fantasy owners should consider selling high before Danilo Gallinari comes back early next month

Waiver-Wire Watch (four stars = must add; one star = keep an eye on him):
Isaiah Thomas: 18 Pts, 2 Reb, 6 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 TO (****)

Jordan Crawford: 32 Pts, 3 threes, 2 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Stl, 3 TO (****)
