Beast of the Night: Stephen Curry finished with 36 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and six three-pointers last night against the Nuggets. He shot 77 percent (13-17) from the floor, 57 percent (4-7) from the free-throw line and had one turnover. For the season, Curry is averaging top five numbers, which is a shade better than what was expected of him heading into the season. So long as he’s healthy, Curry will remain a fantasy beast.

Lines for Discussion:
Pau Gasol: 12-20 FG (60%), 1-1 FT (100%), 25 Pts, 14 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 Blk, 2 TO; Gasol has double-doubled in his last four games, averaging 17.7 points, 14.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.3 blocks in that stretch

Arron Afflalo: 8-16 FG (50%), 5-5 FT (100%), 5 threes, 26 Pts, 2 Reb, 1 TO; Afflalo has been a big disappointment his season, but this was nice

Channing Frye: 8-17 FG (47%), 1-1 FT (100%), 4 threes, 21 Pts, 10 Reb, 1 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 Blk, 2 TO; Frye has looked mostly solid so far in February and seems safer to start going forward (continue reading…)

by on Nov.26, 2011, under Other

By now you’ve surely heard or read that the NBA lockout is all but over. This is, of course, fantastic news.

Internet fist bumpNow the question is: What does this mean for fantasy basketball this season? (Boy, does it feel good to be able to write “this season” without a cynical smirk plastered on my face and a bitter tear in my eye.) We’ll delve deeper into the fallout through the coming weeks, but here’s a quick rundown of some of the important things to keep in mind for now: (continue reading…)

Daily Fantasy Diagnosis: 2.23.11

Brandon Jennings

[Read the full post at DimeMag.com]

Beast of the Night: Brandon Jennings finished with 27 points, three rebounds, seven assists, three steals, two blocks and two three-pointers last night. He shot 41 percent (7-17) from the field, 92 percent (11-12) from the free-throw line and had just one turnover. Jennings has been pretty solid for much of this month so far, but his Achilles heel continues to be his poor shooting from the field. This isn’t going to change anytime soon.

Lines for Discussion:
D.J. Augustin: 8-15 FG (53%), 5-5 FT (100%), 2 threes, 23 Pts, 1 Reb, 8 Ast

Aaron Brooks: 2-9 FG (22%), 4-4 FT (100%), 1 three, 9 Pts, 4 Reb, 6 Ast, 2 Stl, 3 TO (continue reading…)
