Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 11/3/09

Nov 4, 2009

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

Shaquille O’Neal, Cleveland Cavaliers
29 minutes, 21 points, 7-9 FG, 7-10 FT, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 block, 1 turnover
It seems funny putting Shaq’s name here, but his previous season high was 12.

Roy Hibbert, Indiana Pacers
34 minutes, 14 points, 12 rebounds, 6-11 FG, 2-2 FT, 2 assists, 1 steal, 4 blocks, 1 turnover
Hibbert finally showed some of the game he displayed in the preseason.

Dahntay Jones, Indiana Pacers
29 minutes, 20 points, 8-15 FG, 4-6 FT, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 block
Jones now has two solid games out of three. He does little more than score though, so not worth adding just yet.

Rasheed Wallace, Boston Celtics
24 minutes, 20 points, 7-10 FG, 6 three-pointers, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals, 1 block
Like Shaq his season high was 12. Good to see him go deep and stuff the stat line.

Will Bynum, Detroit Pistons
28 minutes, 20 points, 7-15 FG, 6-6 FT, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals, 2 turnovers
Bynum had a nice outburst, but he’s too inconsistent to have on your fantasy team.

Quentin Richardson, Miami Heat
38 minutes, 18 points, 7-17 FG, 4 three-pointers, 10 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals, 1 block, 1 turnover
Richardson finally broke out. He can score, rebound for a Guard, and hit the three. Keep an eye on him to see if he can string together some good games.

Andrew Bogut, Milwaukee Bucks
38 minutes, 16 points, 8-14 FG, 0-1 FT, 13 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal, 3 blocks, 2 turnovers
It must be the night for big men to break out. Great sign for those who drafted Bogut.

Luol Deng, Chicago Bulls
38 minutes, 24 points, 7-16 FG, 9-11 FT, 1 three-pointer, 20 rebounds, 2 blocks, 2 turnovers
Deng has three big games out of four, but this one was ridiculous. Deng is returning to must-start status.

Ron Artest, Los Angeles Lakers
47 minutes, 20 points, 6-8 FG, 6-8 FT, 2 three-pointers, 3 rebounds, 6 assists, 5 steals, 4 turnovers
Artest had his breakout game for the Lakers as well.

Jason Kidd, Dallas Mavericks
37 minutes, 19 points, 6-11 FG, 2-2 FT, 5 three-pointers, 5 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals, 7 turnovers
Kidd was averaging just 3.0 points per game coming into the game so this performance eases the concerns of his fantasy owners.

Jamal Crawford, Atlanta Hawks
34 minutes, 27 points, 8-16 FG, 9-9 FT, 2 three-pointers, 2 rebounds, 7 assists
Crawford now has three straight solid games for the Hawks, and is clearly an key member in their rotation.

Travis Outlaw, Portland Trailblazers
22 minutes, 19 points, 7-15 FG, 4-4 FT, 1 three-pointer, 3 rebounds, 1 steal, 2 blocks
Outlaw is very inconsistent. Unless there’s an injury, he remains a fantasy risk.
