Daily Fantasy Basketball Recap: 4.12.12

Beast of the Night: Monta Ellis finished his big night with 35 points, six rebounds, 10 assists, four steals and three three-pointers. He shot 56 percent (14-25) from the floor and 80 percent (4-5) from the free-throw line, and had five turnovers. This was a nice bounce-back game from his 9/1/7 clunker on Monday. Ellis’ fantasy value has dropped since he arrived in Milwaukee, but he’s still a solid source of points, assists and steals.

Lines for Discussion:
David West: 6-9 FG (67%), 7-8 FT (88%), 19 Pts, 5 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 Blk, 3 TO; he’s been a top 100 player this season, which is fine except for the fact that he was drafted in the fifth round of most drafts

Gordon Hayward: 9-14 FG (64%), 7-7 FT (100%), 4 threes, 29 Pts, 2 Reb, 6 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 TO; since re-entering the starting lineup for the Jazz, Hayward has put up top 30 numbers

Andrew Bynum: 7-20 FG (35%), 2-4 FT (50%), 16 Pts, 30 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Blk; Bynum continues to steamroll the competition and is making us all wonder how high his ceiling would be without Kobe Bryant around (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: LeBron James owned the Thunder with his 34 points, seven rebounds, 10 assists, four steals, one block and three three-pointers last night. He shot 50 percent (10-20) from the field and 85 percent (11-13) from the free-throw line, and had two turnovers. This followed his 41/6/4 line against the Sixers the previous night. Believe it or not, last night’s monster line helped James reclaim the No. 1 spot over Kevin Durant again.

Lines for Discussion:
Darren Collison: 7-8 FG (88%), 3-3 FT (100%), 17 Pts, 3 Reb, 11 Ast, 1 TO; this has been an underwhelming season for Collison, to say the least

Jordan Crawford: 11-22 FG (50%), 1-1 FT (100%), 5 threes, 28 Pts, 2 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 TO; he will be one of the most appealing players to consider in next year’s drafts

Andrea Bargnani: 8-15 FG (53%), 5-5 FT (100%), 3 threes, 24 Pts, 5 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 TO; in his last five games, Bargnani has averaged 25.0 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steal, 0.4 blocks and 2.0 threes, while shooting 51 percent from the field and 94 percent from the free-throw line (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Danny Granger posted 25 points, seven rebounds, one assist, two blocks and three three-pointers last night against the Wizards. He shot 53 percent (8-15) from the field and 100 percent (6-6) from the free-throw line, and had no turnovers. Granger has displayed a habit of turning in a clunker or two each week, but he’s maintained top 50 value throughout the season.

Lines for Discussion:
Nene: 5-12 FG (42%), 6-6 FT (100%), 16 Pts, 13 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 1 TO; now let’s see if he can stay healthy

Lamar Odom: 4-6 FG (67%), 2-2 FT (100%), 2 threes, 12 Pts, 4 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 TO; if you still have him on your bench, don’t expect any miracles from Odom for the remainder of this season

Andrew Bynum: 10-15 FG (67%), 5-6 FT (83%), 25 Pts, 13 Reb, 4 Blk, 4 TO; no three-point attempts (continue reading…)

Channing Frye

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 (continue reading…)

Josh Smith

Beast of the Night: Josh Smith busted out something nasty last night, to the tune of 33 points, 13 rebounds, seven assists, one steal, two blocks and two three-pointers. He shot 57 percent (13-23) from the floor and 100 percent (5-5) from the free-throw line, and had one turnover. After shooting a miserable 41 percent from the field in February, Smith is hitting 51 percent of his shots to go along with his 26.6 points, 10.3 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.3 steals, 1.9 blocks and 1.1 threes per game through the first seven games of March.

Lines for Discussion:
Dwight Howard: 9-13 FG (69%), 6-18 FT (33%), 24 Pts, 25 Reb, 1 Ast, 3 Stl, 2 Blk, 2 TO; Howard is averaging 27.9 points, 15.6 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 2.1 steals and 1.7 blocks so far this month, while shooting 67 percent from the field

Jameer Nelson: 10-16 FG (63%), 1-2 FT (50%), 4 threes, 25 Pts, 1 Reb, 4 Ast, 2 Stl, 4 TO; he’s been better this month, as he’s managed to hit 48 percent of his shots from the floor while averaging 11.7 points, 3.1 rebounds, 6.3 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.9 threes per game

Andrew Bynum: 15-18 FG (83%), 7-8 FT (88%), 37 Pts, 16 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 4 TO; through the first seven games of March, he’s averaging 14.1 shot attempts per game, 2.4 more attempts per game than his 11.7 averages in January and February (continue reading…)
