Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 1/2/11

Jan 3, 2011

Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.
Glen Davis, Boston Celtics
Big Baby scored 15 points (6-14 FG, 3-4 FT) with 11 rebounds, 8 assists, and 2 steals. He’s been solid all along, but gets a slight uptick with KG out.
Joey Dorsey & Amir Johnson, Toronto Raptors
Dorsey scored 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-8 FT)  with 13 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 steals. He’s averaging 10.8 rebounds in his past four games, and is a decent short-term option while Andrea Bargnani is out. Johnson scored 10 points (5-11 FG) with 10 rebounds for his second straight double-double. He added 2 assists and a block.
Shawn Marion & DeShawn Stevenson, Dallas Mavericks
Marion scored 22 points (11-16 FG) with 5 rebounds and an assist. He’s a good pickup with Caron Butler sidelined. Stevenson added 21 points (6-13 FG, 4-5 FT, 5-12 3PM) with 3 rebounds, 4 assists, and a block. The Mavs are short-handed so he could have a nice boost while they get back to health.
Ramon Sessions, Cleveland Cavaliers
Sessions socred 19 points (9-13 FG, 1-2 FT) with 7 rebounds and 12 assists. He’s averaging 16.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 6.3 assists. He’ll likely slow his pace since he’s not playing me this week. In all seriousness, he’ll remain a solid play with Daniel Gibson out.
Nicolas Batum, Portland Trail Blazers
Batum scored 21 points (8-12 FG, 3-3 FT, 2-5 3PM) with 2 rebounds, an assist, and a steal. He’s averaging 13.8 points in his past five games.
Marcin Gortat, Phoenix Suns
Gortat scored 16 points (6-10 FG, 4-7 FT) with 6 rebounds, an assist, and 3 blocks. He’s played 30+ minutes the past three games so he’s worth a look as long as he maintains that playing time.
Omri Casspi & Carl Landry, Sacramento Kings
Casspi scored 14 points (4-7 FG, 2-2 FT, 4-6 3PM) with 10 rebounds, an assist, and a steal. Landry added 11 points (3-11 FG, 5-5 FT) with 12 rebounds and an assist. Like most Sacramento players, they are wildly inconsistent.
