Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 12/5/09

Dec 6, 2009

Before we get started, check out this week’s fantasy basketball roundtable debate (click here for the article). You can also look at next week’s NBA schedule as you prepare to set your lineups (click  here for the article).

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

Willie Green, Philadelphia 76ers
41 MIN, 26 PTS, 10-15 FG, 4-4 FT, 2 3PM, 4 AST, 1 BLK
He’s been on a tear, but A.I. is coming. Plus, he hurt his hand last night.

Marco Belinelli, Toronto Raptors
23 MIN, 15 PTS, 6-8 FG, 2-2 FT, 1 3PM, 5 REB, 3 AST, 1 STL, 2 TO
He’s not getting enough opportunities to be a fantasy factor.

Ryan Gomes, Minnesota Timberwolves
36 MIN, 23 PTS, 9-10 FG, 5-5 FG, 5 REB, 5 AST, 1 STL, 2 TO
Gomes is on fire, and has played well in both games since Kevin Love’s return, which is encouraging.

Erick Dampier, Dallas Mavericks
31 MIN, 0 PTS, 0-1 FG, 12 REB, 1 STL, 4 BLK, 2 TO
Weird game. Marvin Williams of the Hawks had three points and 15 rebounds. Dampier doesn’t score and hauls in 12. It’s like they channelled Ben Wallace. The points aren’t there with Dampier right now, but he’s picking up boards and blocks. He’s also rendered Drew Gooden and Tim Thomas useless.

Andres Nocioni, Sacramento Kings
31 MIN, 20 PTS, 7-13 FG, 2-2 FT, 4 3PM, 4 REB, 1 AST, 1 STL, 1 TO
He’s played OK of late, but part of tonight’s performance can be attributed to Phoenix’s lack of defensive prowess.

Joel Pryzbilla, Portland Trail Blazers
35 MIN, 6 PTS, 2-2 FG, 2-2 FT, 12 REB, 1 BLK, 3 TO
Greg Oden is likely done for the year. Pryzbilla should be a decent source of boards and blocks.

Mickael Pietrus, Orlando Magic
36 MIN, 22 PTS, 6-12 FG, 6-7 FT, 4 3PM, 3 REB, 1 STL, 1 BLK, 1 TO
Pietrus is averaging 19.5 points over his past two games, but keep in mind they were against the Knicks and the Warriors.

Jason Williams, Orlando Magic
37 MIN, 12 PTS, 4-9 FG, 2-2 FT, 2 3PM, 5 REB, 8 AST, 1 STL, 4 TO
Williams continues to be a solid source for assists.

Anthony Randolph, Golden State Warriors
35 MIN, 28 PTS, 10-23 FG, 8-9 FT, 13 REB, 5 AST, 1 STL, 1 BLK
Randolph missed a couple games because of an ankle injury, but responded in a big way. He should be safe to get back in your lineups.

C.J. Watson, Golden State Warriors
30 MIN, 17 PTS, 6-10 FG, 3-3 FT, 2 3PM, 2 REB, 2 AST, 1 STL, 1 TO
C.J. continued his strong play. He’s averaging 15.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.0 rebounds, 1.8 steals, and 1.5 three-pointers over his past four games.
