Beast of the Night: Carmelo Anthony posted 34 points, three rebounds, five assists, one steal and hit four three-pointers last night. He shot 75 percent (12-16) from the field, 100 percent (6-6) from the free-throw line and had two turnovers. This was a nice bounce-back game after shooting just 33 percent from the field on Sunday. Anthony’s stats have remained mostly steady since his transition into a Knicks uniform, with improvements in threes made and points per game.

Lines for Discussion:
Boris Diaw: 8-13 FG (62%), 1-2 FT (50%), 2 threes, 19 Pts, 8 Reb, 8 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 TO

Al Jefferson: 17-26 FG (65%), 2-3 FT (67%), 36 Pts, 12 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Blk, 2 TO (continue reading…)

Daily Fantasy Diagnosis: 11.8.10 (Weekend Recap)

Pau Gasol

Yeah, he's good. (Harry How/Getty Images)

[Read the full post at DimeMag.com]

Weekend Wonder: Pau Gasol averaged 25 points, 10.5 rebounds, 6.5 assists, 1.5 steals, 1 block and 0.5 turnovers in two games over the weekend and had his fourth career triple-double on Sunday. Gasol is putting up ungodly digits with Andrew Bynum still making his way back, but should remain a top dog once the man with weak knees hobbles his way back to the court.

Lines for Discussion:
Roy Hibbert (11/5): 4-11 FG (36%), 6-7 FT (86%), 14 Pts, 12 Reb, 4 Ast, 6 Blk, 6 TO

Gilbert Arenas (11/5): 6-13 FG (46%), 2-3 FT (67%), 4 threes, 18 Pts, 1 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl (continue reading…)

Lines for Discussion:
LaMarcus Aldridge: 12-19 FG (63%), 9-9 FT (100%), 33 Pts, 9 Reb, 1 Stl, 1 Blk

Nicolas Batum: 1-5 FG (20%), 1-2 FT (50%), 3 Pts, 1 Reb (continue reading…)
