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.

This week I have the distinct pleasure of hosting the Fantasy Basketball Roundtable. My prediction for this week’s discussion? In the words of the great Clubber Lang, “Pain.”

Since all the respondents are devoted fantasy basketball bloggers and supposed “experts” in this wonderful field of study, I thought it would be nice for our readers to get a glimpse into our amateur moments — to humanize us and make us more relatable, if we weren’t already. Little did I know how afflicted the answers would turn out to be. They read like a series of tear-soaked letters from spurned lovers recounting regrettable romances that have all gone awry and ended in soul-crushing heartbreaks.

Beast of the Night: Dirk Nowitzki put up 42 points, 12 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 blocks, 1 turnover and hit 3 threes last night against the Pistons.  He shot 57 percent (13-23) from the field and 81 percent (13-16) from the free-throw line. Diggler had a rocky start to the season but is starting to heat up lately.
