Beast of the Night: Wesley Matthews produced a fine line to the tune of 33 points, one rebound, two steals and five three-pointers. He shot 83 percent (10-12) from the floor and 80 percent (8-10) from the free-throw line, and had two turnovers. Since being reinserted into the starting lineup on March 16, Matthews has averaged top 10 numbers.

Lines for Discussion:

Marcus Camby: 6-12 FG (50%), 12 Pts, 11 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO; Camby is on a nice little roll right now and seems to have a solid grip on that starting center spot for the Rockets

Luis Scola: 9-17 FG (53%), 18 Pts, 12 Reb, 6 Ast, 2 Stl, 3 Blk, 2 TO; this was a great line, but Scola remains a limited fantasy player, primarily because of his lack of steals and blocks

O.J. Mayo: 8-19 FG (42%), 5-5 FT (100%), 1 three, 22 Pts, 2 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 Stl; his numbers aren’t all that improved from their marks last season

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

Courtney Lee: 13 Pts, 2 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 2 TO (****)

Chase Budinger: 13 Pts, 3 threes, 3 Reb, 3 Ast (**)

Richard Hamilton: 6 Pts, 1 three, 3 Reb, 5 Ast (**)

Ekpe Udoh: 15 Pts, 8 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Blk, 2 TO (**)

Kevin Seraphin: 15 Pts, 3 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl, 3 TO (***)

Jan Vesely: 14 Pts, 7 Reb, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 3 TO (**)

Randy Foye: 28 Pts, 8 threes, 3 Reb, 2 Stl, 2 TO (****)

Jimmer Fredette: 19 Pts, 3 threes, 2 Reb, 1 Stl, 2 TO; (*)

Terrence Williams: 12 Pts, 12 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 TO (*)
