Beast of the Night: D.J. Augustin put up 31 points, four rebounds, eight assists, one steal and three three-pointers last night. He shot 65 percent (11-17) from the field, 100 percent (6-6) from the line and had three turnovers. He has exceeded most owners’ expectations so far this season by averaging top-50 numbers so far, and is in the midst of having his best month yet.

Lines for Discussion:
Andre Iguodala: 7-11 FG (64%), 5-9 FT (56%), 19 Pts, 5 Reb, 5 Ast, 4 Stl

Thaddeus Young: 9-14 FG (64%), 3-3 FT (100%), 21 Pts, 6 Reb, 2 Blk, 2 TO (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Pau Gasol showed that his hamstring is just fine, as he finished with 21 points, 14 rebounds, 8 assists, 1 steal, 5 blocks and 2 turnovers last night against the Wizards. He shot 39 percent (7-18) from the field and 88 percent (7-8) from the free-throw line. Gasol will take a slight hit when Andrew Bynum returns, but he’ll still be a top-tier fantasy stud.

Lines for Discussion:
Chauncey Billups: 5-13 FG (39%), 11-12 FT (92%), 4 threes, 25 Pts, 3 Reb, 5 Ast, 4 Stl, 1 Blk, 3 TO

Stephen Jackson: 8-22 FG (36%), 2-2 FT (100%), 5 threes, 23 Pts, 9 Reb, 7 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 Blk, 3 TO (continue reading…)
