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.
