Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 12/11/10
Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.
DeAndre Jordan, Los Angeles Clippers
Jordan scored 10 points (5-9 FG) with 14 rebounds. He’s averaging 9.5 points and 12.5 rebounds in his past two games. Keep an eye on him.
Glen Davis, Boston Celtics
Big Baby scored 16 points (6-12 FG, 4-6 FT) with 7 rebounds and a block. He’s scored 16 points in his last four games with 7.8 rebounds per night during that stretch.
Nazr Mohammed, Charlotte Bobcats
Mohammed scored 14 points (7-11 FG) with 5 rebounds, 2 steals, and 2 blocks. He’s averaging 13.5 points and 3.5 blocks in his past two games.
Jerryd Bayless & Leandro Barbosa, Tornto Raptors
Bayless, filling in for Jose Calderon, scored 31 points (10-12 FG, 10-12 FT, 1-2 FT) with 5 rebounds, 7 assists, and a steal. Calderon is expected back soon, so don’t expect him to continue to put up huge numbers for long. Barbosa added 22 points (8-13 FG, 3-3 FT, 3-4 3PM) with 3 rebounds, 7 assists, and a steal. It seems like his scoring is back, but the boost in assists won’t continue when Calderon returns. He’s worth owning, but can be quite inconsistent.
Ben Wallace, Detroit Pistons
Big Ben, who sat out last night’s game, returned in a big way. He scored 23 points (10-13 FG, 2-4 FT, 1-1 3PM) with 14 rebounds, 4 assists, and 5 steals. He could not have been in many lineups, and it probably should stay that way.
Taj Gibson, Chicago Bulls
Gibson scored 12 points (5-16 FG, 2-2 FT) with 10 rebounds, 3 assists, a steal, and a block. That’s an awful lot of shot for only a dozen points. He’s been mostly an afterthought since Carlos Boozer’s return. His bump came from blowing out the defensively challenged Wolves.
Shane Battier & Chase Budinger, Houston Rockets
Battier scored 16 points (5-11 FG, 2-4 FT, 4-9 3PM) with 2 rebounds, an assist, and a steal. He’s only a borderline fantasy option. Budinger also scored 16 points (6-11 FG, 1-1 FT, 3-6 3PM) with 5 rebounds. He’s simply not a fantasy option.
DeShawn Stevenson, Orlando Magic
Stevenson scored 17 points (5-9 FG, 2-2 FT, 5-7 3PM) with a rebound, 4 assists, and a steal. Look elsewhere.
Omri Casspi, Sacramento Kings
Casspi scored 20 points (7-13 FG, 1-2 FT, 5-7 3PM) with 3 rebounds and am assist. He’s averaging 17.7 points in his past three games.
