Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 12/15/10

Dec 16, 2010


.
Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.
.
DeAndre Jordan, Los Angeles Clippers
Jordan scored 15 points (7-7 FG, 1-2 FT) with 6 rebounds and 3 blocks. It’s enough to keep him from being heckled by his owner, but doesn’t make him fantasy worthy.
.
Spencer Hawes, Philadelphia 76ers
Hawes struggled with his shot (7-18 FG, 2-4 FT), but finished with 16 points, 12 rebounds, an assist, and 5 blocks. He’s averaging 12.2 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 2.2 blocks in his past five games.
.
Leandro Barbosa, Toronto Raptors
Barbosa scored 21 points (7-13 FG, 5-5 FT, 2-3 3PM) with 3 rebounds and 2 assists. He’s averaging 19.3 points in his past five games. Jerryd Bayless scored 20 points of his own, but he’s probably owned in most leagues by now.
.
Marcus Thornton, New Orleans Hornets
Thornton scored 19 points (8-15 FG, 1-1 FT, 2-2 3PM) with 4 rebounds, a steal, and a block. He can get hot so I’ll keep an eye on him, but one game doesn’t make him roster worthy.
.
Thabo Sefolosha & James Harden, Oklahoma City Thunder
Sefolosha scored 15 points (5-8 FG, 4-4 FT, 1-1 3PM) with 9 rebounds, an assist, a steal, and 2 blocks. Harden added 16 points (5-7 FG, 4-5 FT, 2-3 3PM) with 4 rebounds, 4 assists, and a steal. Oklahoma City scored 117 points last night, a number they won’t reach very often. This duo won’t likely be as productive very often either.
.
O.J. Mayo, Memphis Grizzlies
Mayo scored 24 points (10-15 FG, 1-1 FT, 3-6 3PM) with a rebound, 4 assists, and a steal. He’s averaging 17 points over his past three games while shooting 55.6 percent from the field. Perhaps he can start being trusted by the Grizzlies and his fantasy owners again.
.
Chris Douglas-Roberts, Milwaukee Bucks
CD-R scored 21 points (8-15 FG, 3-3 FT, 2-3 3PM) with 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals, and a block. He could be used as a bench option in deeper leagues.
.
Corey Brewer & Wesley Johnson, Minnesota Timberwolves
Brewer scored 20 points (9-18 FG, 1-1 FT, 1-5 3PM) with 3 rebounds, 3 assists, and a steal. Johnson added 17 points (7-12 FG, 2-2 FT, 1-4 3PM) with 4 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 blocks. The Wolves swing players are so inconsistent, and with Martell Webster now in the mix, look for it to be even worse.
