Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 12/14/10

Dec 15, 2010

Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.

Spencer Hawes, Philadelphia 76ers
Hawes scored 18 points (8-11 FG, 2-3 3PM) with 5 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 blocks. He’s averaging 11.3 points and 7 rebounds in his past four games.
Travis Outlaw, New Jersey Nets
Outlaw scored 14 points (6-17 FG, 2-6 3PM) with 7 rebounds, 2 assists, a steal, and 2 blocks. Even with the decent game, he’s averaging just 5.0 points in his past five games.Kris Humphries grabbed 13 rebounds if you need help in that category..
Shannon Brown, Los Angeles Lakers
Brown scored 16 points (6-13 FG, 2-2 FT, 2-6 3PM) with 3 rebounds. He’s a solid bench player for the Lakers, but not much of a fantasy option.
Nick Young, Washington Wizards
Young had 21 points (9-21 FG, 3-3 FT) with a rebound, 2 assists, and 2 steals as John Wall sat out. He missed all four of his three-point attempts. Young is a solid option while Wall is out.
Amir Johnson & Jerryd Bayless, Toronto Raptors
Johnson scored 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-4 FT) with 12 rebounds, and assist, 2 steals, and 2 blocks.He averaged just 6.0 points and 4.7 rebounds in his previous three games so it was good to see him bounce back. Bayless scored 17 points (6-14 FG, 3-4 FT, 2-5 3PM) with 3 rebounds, 9 assists, and a steal. Bayless has great value while Jose Calderon is out, and could be earning the starting job even when he returns.
Nazr Mohammed, Charlotte Bobcats
Mohammed scored 18 points (8-11 FG, 2-5 FT) with 8 rebounds, an assist, and a block. He’s averaging 15 points in his past three games. These hot streaks don’t usually last long so ride him while you can.
Tracy McGrady, Detroit Pistons
T-Mac scored 16 points (5-9 FG, 2-2 FT, 4-6 3PM) with 6 rebounds, 3 assists, a steal, and a block. He can’t be trusted at this stage of his career.
Carl Landry, Sacramento Kings
Landry scored 17 points (6-10 FG, 5-9 FT) with 5 rebounds and 3 blocks. Trying to guess which King player will step up on a given night is like trying to win the lottery.
Chase Budinger, Houston Rockets
Budinger scored 18 points (7-10 FG, 1-2 FT, 3-4 3PM) with 4 rebounds and an assist. He hasn’t done much to date, but he did score 16 his last time out so he’s worth keeping an eye on.
J.J. Redick, Orlando Magic
Redick blew up with 29 points (9-12 FG, 5-7 FT, 6-9 3PM) with 5 rebounds, 2 assists, and a steal. He’s averaging 14.2 points in his past five games.
Ty Lawson, Denver Nuggets
Chauncey Billups will be out a week adn Lawson didn’t waste any time stepping up. He scored 16 points (6-11 FG, 3-3 FT, 1-3 3PM) with 3 rebounds, 6 assists, and a steal. Look for a short-term boost while Billups is out.
Darko Milicic & Martell Webster, Minnesota Timberwolves
Darko scored 25 points (12-19 FG, 1-1 FT) with 11 rebounds and a steal. He was bound to do well against Golden State, but has cooled from his earlier hot stretch. Webster added 17 points (6-8 FG, 3-5 FT, 2-2 3PM) with 5 rebounds, 2 assists, and a steal. Quite a season debut for Webster. Maybe see how he does against another team before adding him.
