Daily Fantasy Basketball Recap: 4.25.12

Beast of the Night: Chris Paul finished with 34 points, five rebounds, eight assists, two steals and four three-pointers. He shot 50 percent (10-20) from the floor and 91 percent (10-11) from the charity stripe, and had two turnovers. CP3 has been a top three stud this season, which is about as surprising as Metta World Peace contradicting his surname.

Lines for Discussion:
Isaiah Thomas: 3-10 FG (30%), 4-4 FT (100%), 1 three, 11 Pts, 5 Reb, 9 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 TO; since entering the Kings’ starting lineup on Feb. 17, Thomas has been a top 50 fantasy basketball asset

Paul Millsap: 10-18 FG (56%), 6-11 FT (55%), 26 Pts, 15 Reb, 4 Ast, 3 Stl, 1 Blk, 2 TO; Millsap has exceeded the highest of expectations by putting up top 10 averages this season

Joe Johnson: 10-17 FG (59%), 2-3 FT (67%), 6 threes, 28 Pts, 7 Reb, 3 Ast, 4 TO; Johnson has put up top 40 averages this season, which is a nice bounce back from what he did last season (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…)

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…)
