Beast of the Night: Channing Frye posted 26 points, nine rebounds, two assists, one steal, four blocks and five three-pointers last night. He shot 56 percent (10-18) from the floor and 100 percent (1-1) from the free-throw line, and had two turnovers. After a poor start to the season, Frye has picked things up since February. He’s been a top 70 asset so far this season, which is about in line with expectations.

Lines for Discussion:

Evan Turner: 9-11 FG (82%), 2-4 FT (50%), 1 three, 21 Pts, 5 Reb, 4 Ast, 3 Stl, 2 Blk; in his last four games, Turner is averaging 21.8 points, 10.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.8 blocks and 0.5 threes, while shooting 64 percent from the field and 77 percent from the free-throw line

Kris Humphries: 7-18 FG (39%), 2-2 FT (100%), 16 Pts, 21 Reb, 3 Ast, 3 Stl, 3 Blk, 3 TO; Hump seems pretty happy without Deron Williams and Brook Lopez around

Jeremy Lin: 2-4 FG (50%), 2-2 FT (100%), 6 Pts, 4 Reb, 6 Ast, 2 Stl, 6 TO; this was just one game, and it was a blowout victory — give this a few more games before making any conclusions

Goran Dragic: 6-11 FG (55%), 1-2 FT (50%), 1 three, 14 Pts, 2 Reb, 10 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 2 TO; with Kyle Lowry out for a spell, Dragic should be started with full confidence

Drew Gooden: 7-12 FG (58%), 1 three, 15 Pts, 10 Reb, 13 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 Blk, 5 TO; so far this month, Gooden is averaging 19.5 points, 8.1 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 1.5 steals, 0.5 blocks and 0.6 threes per game, while shooting 48 percent from the field and 83 percent from the free-throw line

Andrew Bynum: 10-17 FG (59%), 5-7 FT (71%), 25 Pts, 18 Reb, 4 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 Blk, 4 TO; he’s playing 41:42 per game through the first eight games this month, which isn’t sustainable

Jameer Nelson: 9-15 FG (60%), 2-2 FT (100%), 5 threes, 25 Pts, 5 Reb, 7 Ast, 1 Blk; if your league’s trade deadline hasn’t passed yet, now’s the time to sell him off

Manu Ginobili: 5-10 FG (50%), 4 threes, 14 Pts, 3 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 TO; while his minutes will be limited for the near future, Ginobili remains capable of producing startable lines
