by on Nov.26, 2011, under Other

(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…)

Beast of the Night: Carmelo Anthony finished with 31 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and five three-pointers last night. He shot 52 percent (12-23) from the field, 67 percent (2-3) from the free-throw line and had no turnovers. Anthony’s fantasy value has taken a step in the right direction since landing with the Knicks, thanks mostly to his 1.8 threes per game – one whole three-pointer more per game than his career average.

Lines for Discussion:
Gilbert Arenas: 9-14 FG (64%), 1-2 FT (50%), 6 threes, 25 Pts, 2 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Stl, 5 TO

Jordan Crawford: 9-23 FG (39%), 10-10 FT (100%), 1 three, 29 Pts, 2 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 TO (continue reading…)

Thaddeus Young

Didn't expect to ever see him here, huh? (NBA.com)

Beast of the Night: Thaddeus Young posted 21 points, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and four blocks in just 24:39 of burn last night. He shot 63 percent (10-16) from the field, 50 percent (1-2) from the free-throw line and had just one turnover. While Young hasn’t exactly matched his production from last season, he’s still managed to improve his shooting percentages from last season’s marks, and has held top-90 value throughout the season. It would really help his value next season if he hit more threes.

Lines for Discussion:
Rajon Rondo: 9-13 FG (69%), 4-4 FT (100%), 22 Pts, 4 Reb, 8 Ast, 1 TO

Gilbert Arenas: 2-11 FG (18%), 4-6 FT (67%), 1 three, 9 Pts, 10 Reb, 5 Ast, 3 Stl, 5 TO (continue reading…)
