Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 2/22/11

Feb 23, 2011


.
Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.
.
James Harden, Oklahoma City Thunder
Harden scored 19 points (6-12 FG, 3-3 FT, 4-8 3PM) with two rebounds, an assist, and a steal. He’s averaging 12.6 points in his past five games.
.
Tyler Hansbrough, Indiana Pacers
Psycho-T scored 17 points (4-10 FG, 9-10 FT) with five rebounds, an assist, and a block. He’s averaging 11.4 points over his past five games, but has been very inconsistent.
.
Sonny Weems, Toronto Raptors
Weems scored 19 points (9-13 FG, 1-1 3PM) with four rebounds, an assist, and a steal. He has been quiet prior to this outburst.
.
Gerald Henderson, Charlotte Bobcats
Henderson scored 15 points (5-11 FG, 5-8 FT) with six rebounds. He’s averaging 13.8 points in his past five games and 18.3 in his past three.
.
Patrick Patterson, Houston Rockets
Patterson scored 20 points (8-11 FG, 4-5 FT) with seven rebounds and two blocks. I’d need to see more before I considered adding him.
.
Will Bynum, Detroit Pistons
Bynum scored 21 points (9-14 FG, 2-2 FT, 1-2 3PM) with two rebounds and six assists. He would be a solid fantasy option if he could just get more playing time.
.
Wesley Johnson, Minnesota Timberwolves
Johnson scored 14 points (5-14 FG, 3-4 FT, 1-6 3PM) with eight rebounds, three assists, a steal, and a block. He becomes a decent option with Corey Brewer being shipped to the Knicks.
.
O.J. Mayo and Tony Allen, Memphis Grizzlies
Mayo scored 21 points (8-14 FG, 3-5 FT, 2-7 3PM) with three rebounds, an assist and a steal. Allen added 26 points (8-15 FG, 10-14 FT) with eight rebounds, two assists, and a steal. They both stepped up with Rudy Gay out. Allen should continue to be a good option going forward. Mayo makes me nervous, but this was a good sign.
.
J.R. Smith and Ty Lawson, Denver Nuggets
Smith scored 26 points (9-22 FG, 2-2 FT, 6-11 3PM) with eight rebounds, five assists and two steals. Lawson added 21 points (8-15 FG, 4-5 FT, 1-4 3PM) with five rebounds, seven assists, and six steals. It will be interesting to see how these two do when the new Nuggets made their debut.
.
Glen Davis, Boston Celtics
Big Baby scored 12 points (5-10 FG, 2-3 FT) with ten rebounds, a block, and three steals. He was playing Golden State so don’t get too excited.
.
Shannon Brown, Los Angeles Lakers
Brown scored 15 points (6-9 FG, 1-1 FT, 2-4 3PM) with a rebound and an assist. He’s scored 15 in two straight, but isn’t a solid fantasy option.
