Beast of the Night: Paul Pierce blasted the Bobcats with 36 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, three steals, three blocks and a three-pointer last night. He shot 50 percent (10-20) from the field and 83 percent (15-18) from the free-throw line, and had four turnovers. Since March 2, Pierce has averaged 22.5 points, 5.4 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.7 threes, while shooting 47 percent from the field and 87 percent from the charity stripe. Those are top 15 averages.

Lines for Discussion:
Jordan Crawford: 9-16 FG (56%), 1-1 FT (100%), 1 three, 20 Pts, 2 Reb, 5 Ast, 3 Stl, 1 TO; assuming that Wizards roster stays mostly the same next season (when he’ll be playing for a new contract), Crawford could be a solid pick around the fifth round of most drafts

Gerald Henderson: 9-14 FG (64%), 3-5 FT (60%), 21 Pts, 3 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Stl; his value remains limited by his lack of threes

Ryan Anderson: 9-15 FG (60%), 2-2 FT (100%), 8 threes, 28 Pts, 6 Reb, 1 TO; Anderson remains a top 10 fantasy stud for the season, which is already three-quarters over

Carmelo Anthony: 8-20 FG (40%), 12-12 FT (100%), 28 Pts, 12 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 3 TO; Amar’e Stoudemire’s indefinite absence will boost Anthony’s fantasy value

DeMarcus Cousins: 15-26 FG (58%), 8-12 FT (67%), 38 Pts, 14 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 Blk, 5 TO; in the last month, Cousins has given his fantasy owners top 30 value

Waiver-Wire Watch (four stars = must add; one star = keep an eye on him):

Tayshaun Prince: 18 Pts, 1 three, 3 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 TO (**)
