Last night Chris Paul sat out with a swollen knee and will probably miss tonight’s game, as well. If you’re interested please feel to grab Eric Bledsoe as a streamer everywhere. All he did last night in Paul’s stead was drop 14/3/4 with 2 steals in 28 minutes as the Clips blew out Memphis. Assuming the game is more competitive tonight I’d expect Eric to be closer to 35 minutes and that makes for a streaming bonanza! Or Bonanza if you’re into old school TV shows. Anyway, here’s what else I saw in fantasy basketball last night:
Arron Afflalo – 2/2/3 on 1-11 FG. For someone you got for his percents this was an unimpressive showing. Um, you think, hecman?
Glen Davis – 13/4/1 with 2 blocks in 18 minutes. Carry on as before he got hurt but I might think about moving him if you could. Shoulder injuries are scuurrreeee.
Emeka Okafor – 19/11/2 with a block. Nothing to say, he his who he is, i.e. Someone worth owning! Or to wit instead of i.e., if you want to get all legalese about it.
Hakim Warrick – 16/4/3 with 2 steals in 34 minutes. Still only 2% owned in Yahoo! leagues. I know he’s not all that but 2%? Seems a tad bit low for a guy getting some burn. Dontcha think?
Jason Terry – 0/0/2 with a steal in 15 minutes. Nights like this are why I encouraged you to move him last month after a few hot games. Don’t say I didn’t try. Don’t you do it! Mmmm-mmm. Don’t even try it.
Lou Williams – 4/1/3 in 21 minutes. It’s not really worth mentioning any Hawks on a night they only scored 58 points but I’ll nominate Lou anyway. They blew! That said, unless Lou goes back into the starting lineup it looks like his amazing late December run was a bit of a mirage. Sigh.
Darrell Arthur – 10/3/1 in 23 minutes. Deep league grab only. Stream Wayne Ellington though while Rudy Gay is out. If that floats your boat, I mean.
Dante Cunningham – 12/6/0 in 39 minutes. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Derrick Williams dropped 9/4/0 with 2 steals in 26 minutes. I’m not going to say who I preferred you grab. You can’t hear me anyway! Just click here and you’ll see. Oh, wait, I also told you who to grab of these two on my Fantasy Basketball Breakdown Show. Hint: It wasn’t Derrick Williams. Oh, I’d still own Derrick for his upside though. I just prefer Dante a bit more.
Alexey Shved – 7/1/3 with a three in 22 minutes. Not great, not good, disappointing! Hold and let’s see how the minutes shake out. Getting crowded back there, y’all. Sigh.
Ray Allen – 10/0/3 with 2 threes in 23 minutes. I don’t know much in this world but I do know that as sure as the sun rises in the morning, anyone but the big three in Miami will be inconsistent and frustrating to own. I called this back in my Pre-Season Draft Guide. Don’t believe me? Just ask Mike Miller.
Marvin Williams – 5/2/2 with 2 steals and a block in 33 minutes. Aren’t you glad he’s back!? This question is directed only to his mother.
Nick Collison – 2/0/1 with a steal and a block. You saw on Twitter that Serge Ibaka was out Monday night so you practically ran over your girlfriend getting to your computer to stream Nick. What did you end up with? No sex and no stats. Drats!
Michael Beasley – 14/11/1 with 2 blocks and a three. Only a streamer as long as Jared Dudley remains sidelined. He’s farted on my pillow a bit too much for my taste though. Actually, that came out wrong, it sounds like I don’t mind having someone fart on my pillow a few times. Not true, not true. Ewwwww.
Shannon Brown – 21/3/3 with a steal, 2 blocks and 2 threes in 43 minutes. Damn, that’s a pretty good impression of me but the dimes were a bit on the low end, said Jared Dudley. Feel free to stream as long as Dudley remains sidelined then lose him, quick quick.
P.J. Tucker – 2/4/1 with a block in 27 minutes. He’s getting the minutes but not doing anything, said Lance Stephenson.
Tyler Zeller – 13/6/0 with a steals and 4 blocks. I’m loving me some Tyler but you already knew that.
Isaiah Thomas – 6/2/6 with a steal. Let’s not focus on the putrid line, let’s focus on the minutes, 31! Hey, I try to keep it half full for you, man. Oh, and the Kings won!
John Salmons – 14/2/4 with 2 steals and a three. Can’t say I loved him back in December but he seems settled in at the three and is quietly producing so just ride him until the wheels fall off. Or trade him for value! Your call.
Marcus Thornton – 20/1/1 with 2 steals and 2 threes in 30 minutes. Could order possibly be restored? Could it, could it?? Wow, a backcourt rotation of Isaiah Thomas, Tyreke Evans and Marcus Thornton. What a novel idea to play your best players, who knew? F’n Keith Smart. Jackass! Sorry, I’m calm now.
