Beast of the Night: Derrick Rose trucked the Celtics last night with 30 points, five rebounds, eight assists, two steals and a pair of three-pointers. He shot 56 percent (9-16) from the field, 100 percent (10-10) from the foul line and had three turnovers. This made up for his mediocre line (19/3/4) from Tuesday.

Lines for Discussion:
Rajon Rondo: 3-10 FG (30%), 1-3 FT (33%), 7 Pts, 5 Reb, 6 Ast, 1 Stl

  • Jerryd Bayless: he had a great line in his start Saturday without Jose Calderon; if Calderon misses more time with his bum hammy, Bayless will finish the season as a stud
  • Ed Davis: he’s racked up three double-doubles in his last four games and is worth a look if you need big-man stats, especially while Andrea Bargnani is out (continue reading…)
