Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 12/22/10

Dec 23, 2010

Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.
Marvin Williams, Atlanta Hawks
Williams scored 17 points (7-11 FG, 3-6 3PM) with 4 rebounds and an assist. He’s averaging 15.8 points and 5.8 rebounds in is past five games.
Tracy McGrady, Detroit Pistons
T-Mac scored 17 points (8-12 FG, 1-2 3PM with 7 rebounds, 7 assists, and 3 steals. He apparently can break out a vintage game from time to time, but is not a consistent contributor.
Linas Kleiza & Leandro Barbosa, Toronto Raptors
Kleiza scored 19 points (7-11 FG, 4-4 FT, 1-3 3PM) with 5 rebounds, 2 assists, and a steal. He’s averaging 21.0 points in his past three games. Barbosa added 21 points (7-12 FG, 4-5 FT, 3-6 3PM) with a rebound and 4 assists. He’s averaging 15.8 points in his past four games.
Marcus Thornton, New Orleans Hornets
Thornton scored 18 points (7-10 FG, 4-5 3PM) with 3 rebounds and an assist. He’s been on a little bit of a hot streak, but he still is pretty inconsistent.
Martell Webster & Luke Ridnour, Minnesota Timberwolves
Webster scored16 points (4-9 FG, 6-6 FT, 2-5 3PM) with 2 rebounds. He’s really playing well for the Wolves. Ridnour added 16 points (7-12 FG, 1-1 FT, 1-3 3PM) with a rebound, 5 assists, and a steal. Eventually Jonny Flynn will eat into his minutes, but for now he’s a low-end PG option.
Ty Lawson, Denver Nuggets
Lawson scored 22 points (8-12 FG, 4-5 FT, 2-3 3PM) with 3 rebounds and 2 assists. He played 27 minutes to Chauncey Billups’ 36. Carmelo Anthony sat this one out though, so expect a drop in Lawson’s production.
Gary Neal, San Antonio Spurs
Neal scored 22 points (7-12 FG, 3-3 FT, 5-7 3PM) with 2 rebounds and 3 assists. It was his second straight game with 22 points and he remains a decent short-term play with George Hill out.
Shane Battier, Houston Rockets
Battier scored 13 points (4-6 FG, 2-2 FT, 3-5 3PM) with 10 rebounds, 7 assists, a steal, and a block. He’s averaging 10.8 points, 6.0 rebounds, 5.0 blocks, 1.2 steals, 2.0 blocks, and 2.8 three-pointers in his past five games.
DeAndre Jordan, Los Angeles Clippers
Jordan scored 14 points (5-7 FG, 4-6 FT) with 13 rebounds, an assist, 3 steals, and 2 blocks. He’s averaging 10.0 points and 8.0 rebounds in his past five games.

    I’m starting to get into basketball more now. I was at the OKC/Charlotte game on Tuesday which turned out to be the last game for Larry Brown as coach. Ironically, I bought a souvenir cup at the game with his pic on it! LOL! I’m going to be posting pics from the game today.

    Anyway, there’s tons of rumors going around that the Bobcats are trying to acquire Baron Davis from the Clippers and bring him back to Charlotte to reunite with Paul Silas since they were together when the Hornets were here. In fact, they’re considering a 3-for-1 deal to bring him there. One thing is for sure: Charlotte isn’t done making moves.

    Mr. Funk – They are a mess. Michael Jordan is about as bad at basketball decisions as he was good as a player,.

    Yeah, they are a mess, and the bad personnel moves can’t be ignored. No argument there. However, he can’t rebuild because he put too much into this team. Not a good time for the franchise.

    BTW, Silas actually lives 30 minutes from me. One of my buddies makes deliveries to his place through Fedex. Nice guy from what everyone says.
