Beast of the Night: Luol Deng finished his big night with 26 points, six rebounds, three assists, four steals and one block. He shot 43 percent (9-21) from the floor and 100 percent (8-8) from the free-throw line, and had one turnover. For the season, Deng has admirably produced top 50 averages for his fantasy basketball owners. His production shouldn’t be too damaged once Derrick Rose returns this weekend.

Lines for Discussion:
Dwight Howard: 4-8 FG (50%), 8 Pts, 8 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 3 Blk, 5 TO; Howard, who missed his two games before this one, is crumbling at the worst possible time for his owners

John Wall: 8-18 FG (44%), 12-15 FT (80%), 28 Pts, 4 Reb, 10 Ast, 2 Stl, 3 TO; in non-keeper, nine-category leagues, owners would be bold to take Wall anywhere north of the fifth round in 2012-13

DeAndre Jordan: 2-3 FG (67%), 4 Pts, 4 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 1 TO; His 11 points, 13 rebounds, one steal and four blocks the night before was obviously not the start of a hot streak for Jordan (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Kevin Love continued his hot streak with 40 points, 19 rebounds, four assists and four three-pointers. He shot 45 percent (14-31) from the field and 80 percent (8-10) from the free-throw line, and had two turnovers. In his last four games, Love is averaging 37.3 points, 16.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.0 steal, 2.0 blocks and 4.0 threes, the best fantasy numbers in the league during that time period.

Lines for Discussion:
Carmelo Anthony: 9-15 FG (60%), 5-6 FT (83%), 2 threes, 25 Pts, 5 Reb, 6 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 3 TO; Melo’s numbers should improve so long as Amar’e Stoudemire is out

Andrea Bargnani: 7-14 FG (50%), 10-12 FT (83%), 2 threes, 26 Pts, 5 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 2 TO; Bargnani should be a handsome payoff for fantasy owners who stashed him for their playoff runs

Isaiah Thomas: 11-19 FG (58%), 3-3 FT (100%), 3 threes, 28 Pts, 4 Reb, 10 Ast, 1 Stl, 3 TO; since becoming the Kings’ starting point guard, Thomas has averaged 14.8 points, 3.4 boards, 5.3 dimes, 1.1 steals and 1.6 threes per game, while shooting 48 percent from the floor and 86 percent from the free-throw line (continue reading…)

Daily Fantasy Basketball Recap: 3.23.12

Paul Pierce

Beast of the Night: Paul Pierce finished with 25 points, nine rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and three three-pointers last night. He shot 67 percent from the floor and 67 percent from the free-throw line, and had three turnovers. For the season, Pierce has maintained top 45 value, which is about in line of most owners’ expectations heading into the season.

Lines for Discussion:
Monta Ellis: 6-18 FG (33%), 1-1 FT (100%), 13 Pts, 1 Reb, 7 Ast, 1 TO; Ellis’ fantasy owners are probably still booing Joe Lacob

DeAndre Jordan: 7-8 FG (88%), 14 Pts, 9 Reb, 1 Stl; Jordan has been very mediocre this month, and his owners should keep expectations low for the rest of this season

Chris Kaman: 9-13 FG (69%), 2-3 FT (67%), 20 Pts, 10 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 4 Blk, 7 TO; Kaman continues to thrive, though his frequent turnovers weigh down his fantasy value (continue reading…)

Daily Fantasy Basketball Recap: 3.12.12 (Weekend Review)

by on Mar.12, 2012, under Quick hits

Ersan Ilyasova

Weekend Wonder: Ersan Ilyasova makes his debut here after averaging 28.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 2.5 threes in two games over the weekend. In that stretch, he shot 69 percent from the field, 92 percent from the free-throw line and averaged turned the ball over just once. In his last 13 games, Ilyasova has averaged top five numbers, making him a serious contender for pickup of the year.

Lines for Discussion:
Nikola Pekovic (3/9): 8-14 FG (57%), 9-10 FT (90%), 25 Pts, 13 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl; Pekovic followed this up with a 21/11 line the next night, indicating a return to form

Andrea Bargnani (3/10): 2-8 FG (25%), 4-4 FT (100%), 8 Pts, 3 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO; he put up 11/8/2 on Sunday, and will require some time to work some rust off

Jared Dudley (3/10): 9-16 FG (56%), 1 three, 19 Pts, 7 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Blk, 4 TO; so far in March, Dudley is averaging 17.0 points, 7.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.5 steals, 1.0 block and 1.3 threes per game, while shooting 53 percent from the field and 63 percent from the free-throw line (continue reading…)

DeAndre Jordan

Beast of the Night: DeAndre Jordan finished with 14 points, 14 rebounds, two steals and four blocks last night. He shot 78 percent (7-9) from the field and shot not free-throw attempts and had no turnovers. This was Jordan’s third straight game with double-digit rebounds. He remains a fantasy stud for owners punting free-throw percentage.

Lines for Discussion:
Chris Kaman: 7-18 FG (39%), 3-4 FT (75%), 17 Pts, 11 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Blk, 4 TO; since Feb. 13, Kaman is averaging 17.7 points, 9.3 rebounds, 3.1 assists and a block per game, but is shooting just 40 percent from the field and is averaging 3.6 turnovers per game

Derrick Rose: 11-24 FG (46%), 9-11 FT (82%), 1 three, 32 Pts, 2 Reb, 9 Ast, 3 Stl, 2 Blk, 2 TO; his health should be closely monitored

Brook Lopez: 17-28 FG (61%), 4-5 FT (80%), 38 Pts, 6 Reb, 1 Ast, 2 TO; the poor rebounding will probably persist this season, but Lopez is looking like a must-start center again (continue reading…)
