Let’s see who’s killin’ it heading into the Fantasy Basketball title games.

Jason Kidd
- Maybe he’s finally starting to feel comfortable in his second stint in Dallas.  In his last five games he’s averaging 12.6 points, 7.2 rebounds, 10.0 assists, 3.2 steals, 1.2 blocks, and 1.4 three-pointers per game.  He shot 43.8% from the floor and 87.5% from the line.

Steve Nash - The “Goat Face Killa”, credits to Nick from 93X’s Half-Ass Morning Show, has been stepping it up as the season is winding down.  In his last four games he’s averaging 20.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, 11.8 assists, 1.3 steals, and 3.7 three-pointers while shooting 47.3% from the field and 100% from the line.  Included in that four game stretch is a 36 point game and an 18 assist game.

Kidd & Nash – Sounds like a rap group.

Carmelo Anthony
- ‘Melo has stepped up his game as the race for the playoffs is heating up.  In his last five games he’s averaging 30.6 points, 9.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 2.2 steals, and a three-pointer per game.  He’s shot 59.4% from the floor and 68.3% from the line.  In his last two games he’s averaging 42.5 points.

Dirk Nowitzki - Dirk has returned strong averaging 25.7 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.7 steals, and 1.0 three-pointers per game while shooting 52.6% from the floor and 87.5% from the line.  He didn’t show any rust after missing four games with that bad ankle. 

Nick Collison -
  In his past three games the PF/C has been playing some tough basketball.  Perhaps he’s inspired by his Jayhawks Final Four run.  Whatever it is he’s averaging 15.3 points, 14.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 0.7 blocks.  He’s shot 50% from the floor and 76.9% from the line.
