Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 11/28/10
Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.
Marvin Williams, Atlanta Hawks
Williams scored 17 points (6-11 FG, 3-4 FT, 2-3 3PM) with 12 rebounds, an assist, a steal, and a block. If you need some scoring and rebounds in deeper leagues, there are worse options than Marvin Williams.
C.J. Miles, Utah Jazz
Miles scored 16 points (6-7 FG, 3-3 FT, 1-1 3PM) with 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, and a block. After a couple of stinkers, it’s nice to see him bounce back. He’s worth a roster spot in most leagues.
Shane Battier, Houston Rockets
Battier scored 18 points (7-11 FG, 4-6 3PM) with 6 rebounds, an assist, a steal, and a block. He’ll give you an occasional stinker, but he’s playing at a relatively high level right now.
Wesley Matthews, Portland Trail Blazers
Just because Brandon Roy is back, don’t think that Matthews’ scoring days are over. He dropped 25 (9-14 FG, 2-2 FT, 5-6 3PM) with 4 rebounds, an assist, and 2 blocks. As long as he’s a main cog in the rotation, he should produce.
Josh Childress, Phoenix Suns
Childdress scored 15 points (6-9 FG, 3-4 FT) with 5 rebounds, a steal, and a block. While the performance was encouraging, I’m not ready to sign off on him just yet.
J.R. Smith, Denver Nuggets
Smith exploded for 30 points (8-15 FG, 8-11 FT, 6-11 3PM) with 8 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 steals. His big game was due to Carmelo Anthony’s (flu) absence, but one would think a performance like this could vault him out of the doghouse.
Gary Forbes, Denver Nuggets
Forbes also benefited from the additional run scoring 15 points (5-8 FG, 4-6 FT, 1-2 3PM) with 3 rebounds, and 2 assists. I don’t see him taking on a larger role because of this performance, so he should probably be left off of fantasy teams.
