Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 1/25/11
Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.
Ty Lawson, Denver Nuggets
Lawson scored 17 points (6-10 FG, 4-5 FT, 1-2 3PM) with 3 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 steals. He’s averaging 12.0 points in his past five games. The Nuggets were working with a short bench as J.R. Rider, err I mean J.R. Smith was held out of action for missing a shootaround.
Christian Eyenga & Manny Harris, Cleveland Cavaliers
Eyenga scored 15 points (6-15 FG, 2-2 FT, 1-3 3PM) with 3 rebounds and a block. He got the start, but I would look for him to string together a few solid games before I’d consider him. Harris added 14 points (5-9 FG, 3-4 FT, 1-2 3PM) with 4 rebounds and 4 assists. Same deal with Harris.
Randy Foye & Ryan Gomes, Los Angeles Clippers
Foye, starting for Eric Gordon, scored 15 points (5-9 FG, 3-3 FT, 2-5 3PM) with a rebound and 4 assists. He’s a good short-term option while Gordon is out. Gomes scored 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-4 3PM) with a rebound, 2 assists, and 2 steals. He’s averaging 11.0 points and 5.5 rebounds in his last four games.
Jose Juan Barea, Dallas Mavericks
Barea scored 25 points (9-12 FG, 4-4 FT, 3-4 3PM) with a rebound and 4 assists. He hasn’t been a consistent fantasy option this year.
Kwame Brown, Charlotte Hornets
Brown scored 13 points (3-8 FG, 7-10 FT) with 18 rebounds, 2 assists, a steal, and a block. He’s averaging 9.4 points and 10.0 rebounds in his past five games.
Carl Landry, Sacramento Kings
Landry scored 19 points (6-12 FG, 7-7 FT) with 3 rebounds and 2 steals. He’s averaging 12.8 points in the past five games, but 32 minutes and 17.5 points in his past two.
C.J. Miles, Utah Jazz
Miles got the start and responded with 14 points (5-11 FG, 2-2 FT, 2-4 3PM) with 4 rebounds, 5 assists, and 3 steals. He’s a decent bench option, but even better as long as he’s in the starting lineup.
