With Arron Afflalo down for the count there is even more opportunity in Orlando. Orlando is the land of fantasy basketball opportunity! You’ve got Moe Harkless, you’ve got Beno Udrih and you’ve got E’Twaun Moore. Moore is 6% owned in Yahoo! leagues. 6! Beno is 5% owned and jealous of E’Twaun. Moe is at 36% owned but that also means he’s also available in 64% of leagues! I used a calculator since I only have first grade math skills. Anyway, last night E’Twaun dropped 13/9/7 with 3 steals and a three. Ownership percentages aside, Moore is my number one guy of this bunch. Beno posted 7/4/5 with 2 steals in 37 minutes and should see nice combo minutes the rest of the way and Moe continued his low level type fantasy production with 7/9/0 and a steal. I’d go Beno or Moe based on position need after E’Twaun. Your call! Here’s what else I saw in fantasy basketball last night:
Darrell Arthur – 6/4/0 in 19 minutes. We told you to grab Ed Davis over Darrell. It’s called talent! Or cream if you want, it eventually rises to the top. Not that Ed is cream, he’s more like that stuff that accumulates when hot tea sits around too long.
John Wall – 47/7/8 with 2 threes, a steal and a block. The kid was hot last night, oh, so hot last night, but where will he be, where will he be tomorrow-ow-o-o? Go back and sing it like Loverboy does, it’s fun! You know something is up when John takes 4 three point attempts and even hit two of them! He’s only averaging .8 3PA on the season. I guess he took one each for Bradley Beal, Trevor Ariza and Martell Webster. It’s called an homage! If he wants to take his fantasy game next year to another level, he’ll need to work on his 3 point game, not sure if that’s going to happen. That said, he’s pretty good!
Chris Singleton – 10/7/3 with 2 blocks while Nene Hilario sat out. Nene means baby in Portuguese. Really it does. Babies get hurt and cry easily. Now you know why he misses games! Oh, and Trevor Ariza and Martell Webster also sat out. Hey, someone had to play big minutes! And you wonder why John Wall dropped 45 last night.
Mike Miller – Started in place of Dywane Wade and posted 7/5/1 in 20 minutes. Anyone remember him? He’s the guy who cheers on Ray Allen from the bench but warned you not to draft Ray way back in October. Really, he did. Go check it out in the Top 200 under the Draft Guide tab up top! It’s true!
Kyle Korver – 7/6/2 with 2 threes in 24 minutes. Kyle been in a shooting slump lately, y’all. He’s still averaging 30 mpg over his last 5 so I wouldn’t lose him unless there was a hot free agent out there. Not like he’s down to 18 mpg or anything. Chill! Or don’t. Your call. I’m chillin’ if there’s nothing hot out there. See what I did there?
Tyler Hansbrough – 12/11/0. David West and maybe even that damn shootin’ fool Danny Granger may return tomorrow night so it looks like the end of the road for Tyler here. Stick a cig in his mouth, blind fold him and give him a pat on the back before shoving him off the plank!
D.J. Augustin – 6/2/5 with 2 steals and a three. The whole Pacer team is a walking hospital ward. Or maybe they are sitting, not sure. George Hill may be back Wednesday, he may not! Monitor and stream away if he doesn’t. Pay attention! It’s the playoffs! For some of you anyway.
Andre Miller – 9/4/6 with 2 steals. Is it me or does it seem like Andre Miller is like 50 years old? He was once traded for Alan Iverson, remember him? He’s the guy who has been out of the league for a couple of years now and seems, to me anyway, like he’s at least 5 years younger than Miller. (I didn’t look though). Anyways! Keep streaming Andre everywhere while Ty Lawson remains sidelined. But you already knew that! You’re so astute.
Darius Miller – 16/2/1 with a steal and 4 threes on 6-7 FG. Eric Gordon didn’t play. What, Gordon didn’t play!? WTF! Monitor.
Brian Roberts – 13/5/18 with a three and all this time I thought it was just that Greivis Vasquez was so talented! Stream Wednesday if GV is to miss more time!
Evan Turner – 6/6/0 with a steal in 31 minutes. I’m not dropping him in standard 12 team leagues. That’s all I know. If you drop him there then you is crazy. You smokin’ the crack or something?
Arnett Moultrie – 14/8/0 with a steal. The 76ers are like 16 games under .500 so maybe, just maybe, Arnett will start to get a look-gander by the coach. I’d keep my eye on him if I were you. Just one eye is sufficient, use the other eye to watch The Voice tonight on NBC!
Randy Foye – 17/3/1 with 3 threes. The game was a blow out so Randall, or Randy as he’s more popularly known, or suck ass as his fantasy owners like to call him, got a chance to launch some extra shots. He’s still good for threes though!
Pau Gasol – 7/8/2 in 23 minutes. What did you expect after 8 weeks off, 20/10 and 2 blocks?? Come on, now, son. You gots to keeps it real! Hope for better.
