Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 12/5/10
Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.
Nate Robinson & Glen Davis, Boston Celtics
Nate filled in for Rondo and scored 21 points (8-12 FG, 2-2 FT, 3-6 3PM) with 6 rebounds, 6 assists, and a steal. The C’s are off until Wednesday so Rondo should be able to suit up, meaning Robinson isn’t worth adding. Meanwhile, Big Baby scored 16 points (7-13 FG, 2-2 FT) with 9 rebounds, 2 assists, and a steal. He’s averaging 14.6 points and 7.0 rebounds in his past five games.
Jordan Farmar, New Jersey Nets
Devin Harris returned, but Farmar still managed to score 16 points (6-10 FG, 4-5 3PM) with 4 rebounds, 2 assists, and 3 steals. It appears he’ll still hold some value for the near future.
Amir Johnson & Jerryd Bayless, Toronto Raptors
Johnson had 22 points (10-14 FG, 2-4 FT) with 16 rebounds, 3 steals, and 2 blocks. He should be a nice option while Reggie Evans (foot) is out. He can be rather inconsistent though. Bayless scored 23 points (8-16 FG, 2-4 FT, 5-7 3PM) with 7 rebounds and 6 assists. He’s also inconsistent, but is a decent source for assists.
Serge Ibaka, Oklahoma City Thunder
Ibaka scored 19 points (8-10FG, 3-3 FT) with 8 rebounds, an assist, and 3 blocks. He’s averaging 10.4 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 3.2 blocks in his past five games.
Nick Young, Washington Wizards
Young scored 20 points (8-14 FG, 2-3 FT, 2-5 3PM) with 4 rebounds, an assist, and a block.
Hakim Warrick, Phoenix Suns
Warrick had 14 combined points in three games before exploding for 26 points (10-13 FG, 6-10 FT) with 6 rebounds and 2 assists. He’s the Suns’ best bench option right now, but he’s a frustrating fantasy player.
Nicolas Batum, Portland Trail Blazers
Batum scored 13 points (4-12 FG, 4-4 FT, 1-3 3PM) with 14 rebounds and a steal. He’s reached double-figures in his past two games, but lost his fantasy luster when he lost his starting gig.
