Beast of the Night: Paul Millsap torched the Heat last night, putting up 46 points, 9 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and 1 block. As if that weren’t enough, he hit all three of his three-point attempts (he went 1-9 from deep during all of 2009-10), shot 68 percent (19-28) from the field, 71 percent (5-7) from the line and had just one turnover in 43:27 of work in the overtime victory. Millsap is every fantasy owner’s man crush at the moment, so boast all you want if you own him.

Lines for Discussion:
J.J. Hickson: 8-17 FG (57%), 2-2 FT (100%), 18 Pts, 10 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 TO

Darren Collison: 12-14 FG (86%), 1-1 FT (100%), 4 threes, 29 Pts, 3 Reb, 6 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 TO (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: John Wall did “The Dougie” then danced his way to 29 points, 2 rebounds, 13 assists, 9 steals and 8 turnovers. He shot 56 percent (9-16) from the field and 79 percent (11-14) from the line. It’s a flawed line and the rookie nearly notched a somewhat unsavory quadruple-double, but this was an eye-popping performance, especially for owners in leagues that don’t count turnovers.

Lines for Discussion:
Josh Smith: 3-11 FG (27%), 6 Pts, 11 Reb, 4 Ast, 2 Stl, 5 Blk

J.J. Hickson: 11-17 FG (65%), 9-11 FT (82%), 31 Pts, 5 Reb, 1 Stl, 5 TO (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Tim Duncan hung 23 points, 12 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals and 4 blocks on the Pacers last night, and shot 83 percent (10-12) from the floor, 60 percent (3-5) from the line and had just 1 turnover. He won’t be this good all season long, but shame on you if you’ve forgotten Duncan’s worth.

Lines for Discussion:
Amar’e Stoudemire: 7-16 FG (44%), 5-6 FT (83%), 19 Pts, 10 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Blk, 9 TO

Dwyane Wade: 10-20 FG (50%), 9-12 FT (75%), 1 three, 30 Pts, 7 Reb, 4 Ast, 3 Stl, 2 Blk, 4 TO (continue reading…)

We’re hours away from the start of what should be an indelible 2010-11 NBA season. I hope you’re as excited as I am.

I’ve posted my top five fantasy basketball storylines to watch this season. Head over to DimeMag.com to read the full post. Below is a teaser:

1. Sleepers or Busts: Anthony Randolph, J.J. Hickson, Nicolas Batum, Austin Daye, Jeff Teague, Leandro Barbosa and Rodrigue Beaubois – these are some of the names that have been tagged with “sleeper” for 2010-11. Who will fulfill that label? Who will continue to slumber? And how forgiving will we be of the latter group?… (continue reading…)
