Beast of the Night: Wesley Matthews produced a fine line to the tune of 33 points, one rebound, two steals and five three-pointers. He shot 83 percent (10-12) from the floor and 80 percent (8-10) from the free-throw line, and had two turnovers. Since being reinserted into the starting lineup on March 16, Matthews has averaged top 10 numbers.

Lines for Discussion:
Marcus Camby: 6-12 FG (50%), 12 Pts, 11 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO; Camby is on a nice little roll right now and seems to have a solid grip on that starting center spot for the Rockets

Luis Scola: 9-17 FG (53%), 18 Pts, 12 Reb, 6 Ast, 2 Stl, 3 Blk, 2 TO; this was a great line, but Scola remains a limited fantasy player, primarily because of his lack of steals and blocks

O.J. Mayo: 8-19 FG (42%), 5-5 FT (100%), 1 three, 22 Pts, 2 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 Stl; his numbers aren’t all that improved from their marks last season (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Josh Smith gave his owners some love on Valentine’s Day with a line of 27 points, 14 rebounds, three assists, three steals and one three-pointer. He shot 65 percent (11-17) from the floor, 100 percent (4-4) from the free-throw line and had five turnovers. Smith is averaging season-high marks in his shooting from the field, scoring, rebounding and steals so far in February. He’s also shooting free throws a lot better lately.

Lines for Discussion:

D.J. Augustin: 3-7 FG (43%), 1 three, 7 Pts, 9 Ast (continue reading…)

Below is a post that blends two of my favorite things: fantasy basketball (of course) and the classic film “Office Space.” For those of you deprived souls who have yet to see the movie, below is a clip that explains the relevance of the film to this post:

So, without further ado, here is a list of conclusions some fantasy owners may have jumped to after the first handful of games played this season, along with the related comments-from-the-mat in parentheses. (continue reading…)
