Beast of the Night: Amar’e Stoudemire showed that he really wasn’t afraid of the Heat by putting up 24 points, eight rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and a three-pointer. He shot 59 percent (10-17) from the field and 75 percent (3-4) from the free-throw line. In the battle of the goggles, Stoudemire won.

Now that the NBA has announced its All-Star starters for 2010-11, it’s our turn. In case you missed it, back in late December we posted our “ballots” for the 2010-11 NBA fantasy All-Stars. The idea behind this was, “If the NBA can have us vote on each season’s All-Stars, why can’t we do the same for fantasy basketball?” Well, the people have spoken.

It’s clear that some players earned the most votes based purely on their straight-up values so far this season. In other cases, the reasons were a bit less obvious. Some races were close, others were blowouts. Below is a rundown of the results, along with my own votes and brief comments. (continue reading…)

Weekend Wonder: Deron Williams was hot this past weekend, averaging 33 points, 1.5 rebounds, 7.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 3 threes in two games.  He shot 54 percent from the field and 90 percent from the free-throw line during that stretch. Williams is scoring four more points per game this season compared to last season and has upped his shooting form the field and free-throw line.

Daily Fantasy Diagnosis: 12.7.10

Beast of the Night: Kevin Love didn’t notch another 31/31, but he still managed to put up a pretty decent line against the Knicks. He finished with 33 points, 15 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal and made three three-pointers last night. Love shot 56 percent (10-18) from the field and 100 percent (10-10) from the line, and managed to avoid turning the ball over. His huge game against the Knicks back on Nov. 12 was the turning point of his season and Love’s owners have been enjoying quite a ride since then.

Jose Calderon: 8-12 FG (67%), 3-4 FT (75%), 2 threes, 21 Pts, 1 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO

LeBron James

Beast of the Night: LeBron James had himself a dandy homecoming, finishing with 38 points, 5 rebounds, 8 assists, 1 steal, 1 block and no turnovers. He shot 60 percent (15-25) from the field, 67 percent (6-9) from the free-throw line and hit three three-pointers in just 30 minutes of boo-filled action. I guess it doesn’t matter if Akron hates him – James is unapologetically enjoying “the greatness” in South Beach, though his fantasy owners probably wouldn’t use that word at this point in the season.

Lines for Discussion:
Dwyane Wade: 10-16 FG (63%), 4-8 FT (50%), 22 Pts, 9 Reb, 9 Ast, 3 Stl, 3 TO

Daniel Gibson: 6-14 FG (43%), 5-7 FT (71%), 4 threes, 21 Pts, 4 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl (continue reading…)
