Daily Fantasy Basketball Recap: 4.26.12

Beast of the Night: Russell Westbrook finished the 2011-12 NBA season with a bang, producing a pretty line of 30 points, six rebounds, nine assists, three steals, four blocks and a three-pointer. He shot 50 percent (10-20) from the field and 90 percent (9-10) from the free-throw line, and had two turnovers. Westbrook is finishing the season with top 20 value, which falls short of expectations. The most noticeable stat is his 5.5 assists per game this season, well below the 8.2 assists he dished out per game last season.

Lines for Discussion:
J.J. Redick: 9-19 FG (47%), 7-7 FT (100%), 6 threes, 31 Pts, 3 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 TO; Redick has averaged 14.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 0.7 steals and 2.4 threes in 22 games as a starter this season, with one game to go tonight

John Wall: 7-16 FG (44%), 7-8 FT (88%), 21 Pts, 7 Reb, 13 Ast, 7 Stl, 6 TO; he’s finishing the season with top 90 value, but that won’t stop owners from drafting him in the third or fourth round of next season’s drafts — he’d be a much more sensible pick in rounds five or six in nine-category leagues

Caron Butler: 3-8 FG (38%), 3 threes, 9 Pts, 3 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 4 TO; Butler should be seen as a three-point specialist going forward (continue reading…)

Weekend Wonder: Ersan Ilyasova makes his debut here after averaging 28.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 2.5 threes in two games over the weekend. In that stretch, he shot 69 percent from the field, 92 percent from the free-throw line and averaged turned the ball over just once. In his last 13 games, Ilyasova has averaged top five numbers, making him a serious contender for pickup of the year.

Lines for Discussion:
Nikola Pekovic (3/9): 8-14 FG (57%), 9-10 FT (90%), 25 Pts, 13 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl; Pekovic followed this up with a 21/11 line the next night, indicating a return to form

Andrea Bargnani (3/10): 2-8 FG (25%), 4-4 FT (100%), 8 Pts, 3 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO; he put up 11/8/2 on Sunday, and will require some time to work some rust off

Jared Dudley (3/10): 9-16 FG (56%), 1 three, 19 Pts, 7 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Blk, 4 TO; so far in March, Dudley is averaging 17.0 points, 7.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.5 steals, 1.0 block and 1.3 threes per game, while shooting 53 percent from the field and 63 percent from the free-throw line (continue reading…)
