Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.
.
Tyler Hansbrough, Indiana Pacers
Psycho-T scored 21 points (8-17 FG, 5-6 FT) with 12 rebounds, two steals, and a block. He’s averaging 15.5 points in his past four games.
.
Jermaine Taylor and Jason Thompson, Sacramento Kings
Taylor scored 21 points (9-12 FG, 2-2 FT, 1-1 3PM) with five rebounds. He’s averaging 17.0 points in his past three games. Thompson added 17 points (6-12 FG, 5-7 FT) with four rebounds, five assists, a steal, and two blocks. He could get a little more run without Carl Landry gone.
.
Chase Budinger and Courtney Lee, Houston Rockets
Budinger exploded for 30 points (9-18 FG, 8-9 FT, 4-8 3PM) with eight rebounds, an assist, and a steal. It came out of nowhere, but a performance like that makes you take not. Lee added 16 points (7-10 FG, 2-3 3PM) with two rebounds and two assists. He’s averaging 14.0 points in his past four games.
.
Anthony Parker and Manny Harris, Cleveland Cavaliers
Parker scored 19 points (7-10 FG, 1-1 FT, 4-5 3PM) with five rebounds, five assists, two steals, and a block. He’s averaging 15.7 points in his past three games. Harris added 21 points (9-16 FG, 3-4 3PM) with nine rebounds and five assists. He’s barely played lately so don’t put too much stock in the performance.
.
Trevor Booker, Washington Wizards
Booker scored 21 points (9-10 FG, 3-3 FT) with five rebounds, an assist, a steal, and a block. He played just 18 minutes and he’s a long shot to put up this type of performance again anytime soon.
.
Evan Turner, Philadelphia 76ers
Turner scored 15 points (6-11 FG, 3-4 FT) with eight rebounds and an assist. He continues to have an underwhelming rookie season.
.
James Harden, Oklahoma City Thunder
Harden scored 16 points (5-9 FG, 4-4 FT, 2-5 3PM) with a rebound, two assists, and a block. He’s averaging 13.2 points in his past five games.
.
Gary Neal, San Antonio Spurs
Neal scored 19 points (6-9 FG, 3-3 FT, 4-5 3PM) with three assists. He’s averaging 14.6 points and 2.4 three-pointers in his past five games.
.
Toney Douglas, New York Knicks
Douglas scored 23 points (10-12 FG, 3-5 3PM) with three rebounds, three assists, and two steals. He could be a big winner with the Knicks trading away so much depth, but there may not be as many looks on most nights.
.
Sam Young and Tony Allen, Memphis Grizzlies
Young scored 16 points (6-14 FG, 3-3 FT, 1-1 3PM) with nine rebounds, an assist, and two steals. Allen also scored 16 points (6-11 FG, 4-4 FT) with three rebounds, two steals, and a block. They are both pretty much must starts in most leagues.
.
Wayne Ellington, Minnesota Timberwolves
Ellington scored 16 points (5-11 FG, 3-4 FT, 3-4 3PM) with two rebounds, three assists, and a steal. Even with the Brewer trade, the Wolves are pretty crowded for Wayne to be a consistent threat.
.
C.J. Miles, Utah Jazz
Miles scored 16 points (2-9 FG, 11-12 FT, 1-4 3PM) with two rebounds, an assist, and two steals. He’s averaging 18.5 points in his past four games.
.
Peja Stojakovic, Dallas Mavericks
Peja scored 18 points (7-9 FG, 4-5 3PM) with two rebounds, a steal, and a block. He’s averaging 15.5 points in his past four games.
.
Jared Dudley, Phoenix Suns
Dudley scored 17 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 FT, 4-5 3PM) with two rebounds and two steals. He’s too inconsistent for fantasy teams.
.
Willie Green, New Orleans Hornets
Green scored 17 points (7-11 FG, 1-2 FT, 2-3 3PM) with four rebounds and two assists. He continues to put up solid numbers and the Marcus Thornton trade helps his cause.
.
Ron Artest, Los Angeles Lakers
Arterst scored 24 points (8-13 FG, 3-4 FT, 5-6 3PM) with six rebounds, four assists, and two steals. He just doesn’t produce on a regular basis.
