Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 12/1/10

Dec 2, 2010


.
Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.
.
Josh Powell, Atlanta Hawks
Powell scored 16 points on 8 of 9 shooting with 2 rebounds. Great game, but don’t expect an encore.
.
James Harden, Oklahoma City Thunder
Harden played the lesser role of the big three with Kevin Durant out. He scored 16 points (4-11 FG, 7-9 FT, 1-2 3PM) with 7 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals. He won’t repeat those numbers often when Durant returns.
.
Jordan Farmar, New Jersey Nets
Farmar took advantage of Devin Harris’ absence to the tune of 28 points (12-21 FG, 1-2 FT, 3-6 3PM), 1 rebound, 9 assists, and 2 steals. Anthony Morrow (25 points) and Travis Outlaw (16 points) also stepped up their game.
.
Leandro Barbosa, Toronto Raptors

Barbosa scored 16 points (7-13 FG, 2-2 3PM) with 3 rebounds and 3 assists. He’s averaging 12.2 over the past five games, but does little other than score. Jerryd Bayless (16 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists) played well and could be earning more run.
.
Glen Davis, Boston Celtics
Big Baby scored 16 points (7-9 FG, 2-2 FT) with 7 rebounds and an assist. He’s averaging 17 points in his past three games.
.
Greg Monroe, Detroit Pistons
Monroe scored 15 points (7-8 FG, 1-4 FT) with 8 rebounds and a steal. His extra playing time and production are the result of getting crushed by Miami.
.
Brandon Bass, Orlando Magic
Bass scored 17 points (5-8 FG, 7-7 FT) with 5 rebounds and 3 blocks. He’s a good bench player, but not a good fantasy option.
.
Shawn Marion, Dallas Mavericks
Marion delivered again scoring 16 points (5-14 FG, 4-4 FT, 2-4 3PM) with 8 rebounds, an assist, and 2 steals. He’s averaging 15.0 points and 6.6 rebounds in his past five games.
.
Shane Battier, Houston Rockets
Battier scored 17 points (5-7 FG, 3-3 FT, 4-6 3PM) with 6 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 blocks. His scoring fluctuates, but he’s averaging 2.2 blocks over his past four games.
.
Larry Sanders, Milwaukee Bucks
Sanders scored 14 points (5-10 FG, 4-5 FT) with 10 rebounds, 2 steals, and 8 blocks. He’s a decent short-term option while Andrew Bogut (back) is out.
.
J.R. Smith, Denver Nuggets
It looks like, at least for the time being, Smith is out of the doghouse. He scored 20 points (8-16 FG, 2-3 FT, 2-6 3PM) with 10 rebounds, an assists, and 2 steals. Perhaps more importantly, he played 32 minutes. He’s averaging 31 minutes, 25 points, 9 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 2 steals, and 4.5 three-pointers in his past two games.
