Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 1/15/10

Jan 16, 2010

Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.

DeJuan Blair, San Antonio Spurs
Blair had 11 points and 16 rebounds for the Spurs. Not quite the 28 & 21 he had in the previous game, but clearly he’s playing well right now.

Boris Diaw, Charlotte Bobcats
Diaw’s 26 points, 11 rebounds, and 2 blocks were a nice follow-up to the 19 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 assists he had on Tuesday. It’s looking like he’s bad. Kudos to you if you stuck with him. If someone dropped him, go get him.

Grant Hill, Phoenix Suns
Hill had 21 points and 6 rebounds last night. He’s averaging 14.8 points and 8.5 rebounds in his last four games.

Jonas Jerebko, Detroit Pistons
Jonas had 13 points and 8 rebounds last night. He’s averaging 13.7 points and 8.0 rebounds in his last three games.

Brandon Rush, Indiana Pacers
Rush did a bit of everything with 15 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, a steal, and 3 three-pointers last night. He had just ten points in his previous four games though so don’t sweat him.

Wayne Ellington, Minnesota Timberwolves
Ellington had 17 points last night. It was the second straight game with 17 for Ellington. Of course they played a triple-overtime game in the first one and got their doors blown off last night. Keep an eye on him though.

Sam Young, Memphis Grizzlies
Young also had 17 points last night. He’s hit or miss. He only seems to score big in blowouts either way.

Nick Collison, Oklahoma City Thunder
He had the weakest double-double (10 & 10), but it was a solid game nonetheless. He’s only useful in daily transaction leagues if you’re looking for rebounds. He’s averaging 7.6 in his last five games.

Chase Budinger, Houston Rockets
Chase had 17 last night as well, including three long balls. It was his first double-figure game in a month.

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, Milwaukee Bucks
Luc had 13 points and 9 rebounds. He played Golden State so don’t put much weight to it.

Luke Ridnour, Milwaukee Bucks
Luke had 15 points and 8 assists against the Warriors. He’s been playing well though with 13.5 points and 7.3 assists in his last four games.

Craig Smith, Los Angeles Clippers
The Rhino Craig Smith had 17 points and 5 rebounds. The Clippers seem to be playing musical big men as to who will step up to replace Chris Kaman.

Steve Blake, Portland Trail Blazers
Blake had 18 points, 4 rebounds, 6 assists, and 4 three-pointers with Brandon Roy out. He’s a good short-term option while Roy (hamstring) is out.
