Beast of the Night: Chris Paul posted 26 points, 14 assists, two steals and two three-pointers last night. He shot 75 percent (12-16) from the field and had two turnovers. His hamstring injury was a bummer earlier this month, but CP3 is back to business as usual. His averages are second best to LeBron James this season.

Lines for Discussion:
Joakim Noah: 5-6 FG (83%), 4-4 FT (100%), 14 Pts, 13 Reb, 7 Ast, 3 TO; that’s five consecutive double-doubles for Noah, who’s also dishing out 4.6 assists per game in that stretch

Ryan Anderson: 6-13 FG (46%), 2-4 FT (50%), 14 Pts, 20 Reb, 1 TO; he’s maintaining first-round value so far this season

Michael Beasley: 10-14 FG (71%), 12-12 FT (100%), 2 threes, 34 Pts, 3 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 TO; sell high — he’s not the type of guy you take home for the rest of the season, if you catch my drift (continue reading…)

Daily Fantasy Basketball Recap: 1.27.12

Beast of the Night: Marc Gasol finished with 18 points, 11 rebounds, six assists and two steals last night against the Clippers. He shot 42 percent (5-12) from the field, 100 percent (8-8) from the free-throw line and had zero turnovers. Gasol gets some much-deserved attention here, since he’s been steadily putting up top 10 numbers so far this season. His stats will inevitably decline when Zach Randolph returns, but Gasol was still putting up top 10 numbers when Randolph was in the lineup.

Lines for Discussion:
Paul Pierce: 7-18 FG (39%), 8-11 FT (73%), 2 threes, 24 Pts, 6 Reb, 10 Ast, 1 Blk, 5 TO; since Rajon Rondo went down with that wrist injury four games ago, Pierce has averaged 8.3 assists per game

Kevin Garnett: 6-14 FG (43%), 12 Pts, 10 Reb, 4 Ast, 3 Stl, 4 Blk, 3 TO; in his last two games, KG has racked up eight steals and six blocks

Blake Griffin: 8-14 FG (57%), 4-8 FT (50%), 20 Pts, 9 Reb, 8 Ast, 2 Blk, 3 TO; to be blunt, Griffin has been a bit of a disappointment this season, as most of his averages are down from last season (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Derrick Rose put up 20 points, four rebounds, six assists, two steals, three blocks and four three-pointers in just 31:34 of work last night. He shot 47 percent (7-15) from the field, 100 percent (2-2) from the charity stripe and had just one turnover. Rose isn’t quite the fantasy MVP of the season, but he’s made undeniably huge strides toward being a first-round pick next season.

Lines for Discussion:
Brook Lopez: 10-17 FG (59%), 6-6 FT (100%), 26 Pts, 10 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Blk, 1 TO

Jrue Holiday: 8-16 FG (50%), 4-4 (100%), 2 threes, 22 Pts, 4 Reb, 8 Ast, 3 Stl (continue reading…)

Ray Allen

[Read the full post at DimeMag.com]

Beast of the Night: Ray Allen posted a smooth line to the tune of 25 points, four rebounds, one assist, two steals and five three-pointers. He shot 60 percent (9-15) from the field, 100 percent (2-2) from the free-throw line and had two turnovers. Allen deserves a lot of credit for turning in a surprising season. He’s improved on every category except for free-throw percentage and blocks from last season’s marks.

Lines for Discussion:
Kris Humphries: 8-15 FG (53%), 0-1 FT (0%), 16 Pts, 15 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 3 TO

Deron Williams: 5-14 FG (36%), 2-2 FT (100%), 1 three, 13 Pts, 5 Reb, 18 Ast, 1 Stl, 6 TO (continue reading…)
