Weekend Wonder: Derrick Rose averaged 31.5 points, three rebounds, 8.5 assists, 2.5 steals, 1.5 blocks and two threes in two back-to-back games this past weekend. He shot 51 percent from the field, 84 percent from the foul line and turned the ball over 3.5 times per game. Needless to say, Rose is off to a great start to the final stretch of the regular season.

Buy Low, Sell High: 2010-11 Fantasy Basketball Playoff Schedule Preview

Kevin Love as Scumbag Steve

Love has been a beast this season, but his weak playoff schedule kind of makes him a scumbag.

Fantasy playoffs are right around the corner, with most playoff matchups beginning in Week 21 (3/14) or Week 22 (3/21). This means most fantasy owners who are still in contention for a playoff spot in their leagues should start pondering whether or not they want to swing some deals to bulk up their teams’ schedules during that all-important stretch of the season. In essence, fantasy owners should see this as another way of buying low (on players whose teams have favorable fantasy playoff schedules) and selling high (on players whose teams have weak fantasy playoff schedules).

Below is a quick rundown of how many games each team plays in Weeks 21-25 (Week 25 might be combined with Week 24 in leagues that play to the very end of the NBA regular season). (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Andray Blatche finished with 25 points, nine rebounds, four assists, three steals and a block last night against the Nuggets.  He shot 57 percent (8-14) from the field and 100 percent (9-9) from the free-throw line. Blatche is inconsistent but has a high ceiling. If you’re looking for more steady production, try to move him after he gets on another hot streak.

Lines for Discussion:
Al Harrington: 7-12 FG (58%), 1-2 FG (50%), 6 threes, 21 Pts, 5 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 TO

J.J. Hickson: 6-10 FG (60%), 0-2 FT (0%), 12 Pts, 17 Reb, 5 Ast, 4 Blk, 2 TO (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Boris Diaw paid tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. by putting up 25 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, one steal, two blocks and four threes in an overtime loss.  In addition to his triple-double, he shot 57 percent (8-14) from the field, 83 percent (5-6) from the charity stripe and had just one turnover. Diaw has been a roller coaster all season long but remains capable of filling the stat sheet each night.
