Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 11/5/10
Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.
Travis Outlaw, New Jersey Nets
Outlaw had a nice night scoring 17 points on 7 of 8 shooting. He had 18 points three games ago before totaling 6 in the past two. You can’t count on production like that.
Daniel Gibson, Cleveland Cavaliers
Gibson shares Outlaw’s inconsistency. His scoring totals have varied (16, 9, 20, 6, 22), but he contributes in other areas (assists, threes). I trust his 22 points from last night way more than Outlaw’s.
Wesley Johnson, Minnesota Timberwolves
I saw this game in person. Johnson showed a impressive stroke knocking down 7 of 11 shots, and 4 of 6 three-pointers. The Wolves are often puzzling with their rotation, but Johnson looks like he should stick.
Corey Brewer, Minnesota Timberwolves
On a night that I wished Michael Beasley would just stop shooting, Brewer was very active. He his 8 of 18 shots for 18 points and had five steals. The Wolves need to find playing time for him because he’s one of the few players on the team that can play defense.
Eric Bledsoe, Los Angeles Clippers
We’ve talked about Bledsoe a couple of times. Hopefully you snatched him up. He’ll lose value when Baron Davis and Randy Foye return, but his 12 point, 13 assist performance shows you what he’s capable of.
Craig Smith, Los Angeles Clippers
Smith seems to pop up a few times a month. He had 18 points on 8 of 9 shooting. He doesn’t have staying power though.
Hakim Warrick, Phoenix Suns
Warrick stepped up (15 points, 7 rebounds) for the second straight game, and third time in four games. The Suns rotation is subject to change, but it appears like Warrick is the hot hand now and should be owned in most leagues.
Amir Johnson, Toronto Raptors
Johnson exploded out of nowhere with 12 points and 15 rebounds. He’s still splitting time with Reggie Evans, but this performance had to help.
