Daily fantasy recap: 4.14

Beast of the Night: Derrick Rose wrecked the Celtics with 39 points, 5 rebounds, 7 assists, 3 blocks and 2 turnovers. He shot 68 percent (15-22) from the field and 90 percent (9-10) from the line. Rose didn’t make quite the second-year jump that many expected of him but that won’t stop owners from tagging him with hopes of a breakout season in 2010-11.

Noteworthy Lines:
Kevin Garnett – 5-12 FG (42%), 4-5 FT (80%), 14 Pts, 9 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 TO; This was a hugely disappointing season for Garnett, and owners who thought he could put together a turnaround were way off the mark. Hoping for a revived KG next season is like hoping for a resuscitation of Lindsay Lohan’s film career – it’s not going to happen.

Kirk Hinrich – 11-20 FG (55%), 4-5 FT (80%), 4 3ptm, 30 Pts, 4 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO; Spock is usually unappreciated but his all-around fantasy production can’t be denied on most weeks. His value will probably take a hit next year, since Chicago is set to make a run for at least one big-name free agent. (continue reading…)
