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: LeBron James ruined the Magic last night with 51 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists, one steal, one block and three three-pointers made. He shot 68 percent (17-25) from the field, 82 percent (14-17) from the free-throw line and had three turnovers. Maybe Dwight Howard’s pre-game mockery of James sparked this outburst. Whatever the case, this was one of the most monstrous fantasy lines we’ve seen so far this season.

Lines for Discussion:
Monta Ellis: 10-25 FG (46%), 3-3 FT (100%), 1 three, 24 Pts, 5 Reb, 6 Ast, 1 Stl, 4 TO

Andrew Bynum: 4-7 FG (57%), 2-2 FT (100%), 10 Pts, 10 Reb, 6 Ast, 3 Blk, 2 TO (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Arron Afflalo had himself a night to the tune of 31 points, nine rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two threes.  He shot 79 percent (11-14) from the field, 100 percent (7-7) from the free-throw line and had no turnovers. This is something of a preview of what will happen to Afflalo’s fantasy value if Carmelo Anthony is dealt away.

Lines for Discussion:
Beno Udrih: 10-13 FG (77%), 5-5 FT (100%), 1 three, 26 Pts, 4 Reb, 6 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 Blk, 3 TO

Nick Young: 14-22 FG (64%), 8-9 FT (89%), 7 threes, 43 Pts, 4 Reb, 3 Ast, 3 TO (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Dwight Howard finished his big night with 26 points, 23 rebounds, 3 steals and 2 blocks in a tough loss to the Mavericks. He shot 58 percent (11-19) from the field, 100 percent (4-4) from the free-throw line and had three turnovers. This was his third straight game with 20+ rebounds, and Howard is averaging 23.7 points, 21 rebounds, 2.3 steals and 2 blocks during that stretch.

Lines for Discussion:
Serge Ibaka: 3-9 FG (33%), 4-4 FT (100%), 10 Pts, 9 Reb, 2 Blk

Charlie Villanueva

Beast of the Night: Charlie Villanueva finished with 23 points, 11 rebounds, 3 steals and 1 block last night in a surprising blowout victory over the Hawks. He chipped in three three-pointers and shot 59 percent (10-17) from the floor. Villanueva hasn’t started a single game this year, but he’s improved many of his stats from last season’s marks. Still, he remains far from an everyday fantasy stud and lines like this shouldn’t be expected from him that often.

Lines for Discussion:
Amir Johnson: 5-9 FG (56%), 2-4 FT (50%), 12 Pts, 12 Reb, 1 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 Blk, 1 TO

Andrew Bynum: 1-5 FG (20%), 5-8 FT (63%), 7 Pts, 4 Reb, 1 Ast, 2 Blk, 1 TO (continue reading…)
