Fantasy Basketball Daily Boxscore Review (11/13/09)

Only a pair of games on Thursday, but a solid schedule of 9 fantasy matchups for today.  No boxscore report yesterday.  While I would like to have some valid excuse to give you guys, I actually took the day off and went to play some no limit poker at the casino.

Fantasy Basketball Daily Boxscore Review (11/10/09)

Some very high scoring games last night which was a bit surprising.  The pace on five of the six games was 96 possessions, with the MIN/GSW game having 110.  The eFG% in all the games was excellent, sending each of them to a high total. I’ve seen some speculation that the new rims are causing a jump in scoring, but I’m not buying that as the cause of excellent eFG% numbers.  I’d say it’s more just very poor defense.

Fantasy Studs:  Devin Brown, Chris Paul, Stephen Jackson, Kelenna Azubuike, Richard Jefferson, Manu Ginobili, Chris Bosh, Wilson Chandler, Andrei Kirilenko, Carlos Boozer, Steve Nash, Jason Richardson

Fantasy Duds:  Emeka Okafor, Al Thornton, Mikki Moore, Stephen Curry, DeJuan Blair, DeMar DeRozan, Danilo Gallinari, David Lee, Chris Duhon, Channing Frye, Elton Brand

PHO Fantasy Notes:  Grant Hill 11pt/8reb/3ast….Amare Stoudemire 40min/17pt/6reb, 6-14….Channing Frye with a poor game, 10pt/3reb, 4-13 shooting, 2-9 from three….Steve Nash a monster assist game, 21pt/20ast, but 7 tov….Jason Richardson finding his stroke, 11-16 for 29 points…Jared Dudley good game off the bench, 18pts on 6-7 shooting.

PHI Fantasy Notes:  Elton Brand still looking like a huge fantasy bust.  Grab Marreese Speights if he is still on your waiver wire since he will probably take either Brand  or Dalembert’s spot at some point….Thaddeus Young 15pt/4reb/3ast/1stl/1blk….Samuel Dalembert 8pt/5reb….Andrew Iguodala 24pt/9reb….Lou Williams 13pt/3reb/3ast/2stl/1blk….Marreese Speights 20pt/8reb.

NYK FantasyNotes:  Wilson Chandler with a much needed nice fantasy game,  17pt/10reb….Danilo Gallinari 7pt/3reb, 1-3 from three….David Lee 12pt/7reb/2stl….Larry Hughes 12pt/5reb/5ast….Chris Duhon losing some minutes to Toney Douglas and I wouldn’t be surprised to see the trend continue, 8pt/4ast….Toney Douglas 23min/21pt on 9-14 shooting.

SAS Fantasy Notes:  Richard Jefferson with his best game yet for SAS, 24pt/8reb/7ast….Michael Finley started, 7pt/3reb….George Hill got the start for Tony Parker, 22pt/5ast, only 2 tov….Manu Ginobili picking up the scoring slack for missing Parker and Duncan, 36pt/8ast on 8-15 shooting…..Disappointing game for DeJuan Blair with Duncan out, 6pt/7reb and only 19min, 5PF.


MIN 105 @ GSW 146  Poss: 110  MIN ORtg:  95.5  GSW ORtg:  132.7

GSW Fantasy Notes:  Stephen Jackson 10pt/6reb and somehow 15 assists….Kelenna Azubuike 31pt on 13-19 shooting….Mikki Moore with a start, 2pt/5reb.  Not sure why Nelson thinks Moore is a better start than Anthony Randolph….Randolph 23pt/7reb….Monta Ellis 18pt/10reb/3stl…. Stephen Curry 8pt/5ast, 2-8 shooting….Anthony Morrow 20 points on 7-10 shooting, 5-6 from three.

Fantasy Basketball Daily Boxscore Review (11/8/09)

7 Games on the fantasy schedule on Saturday and only 6 games on the schedule for Sunday.   There are some nice fantasy matchups Sunday including the Golden State/Sacramento game and the Phoenix/Washington game.  Many new starters on Saturday including Beno Udrih, Josh Boone, Renaldon Balkman, Bobby Simmons and Josh Howard with his first game action of the season.  Udrih is probably the only one worth a pickup.  Josh Howard should be already owned in most leagues.

Fantasy Studs:  Josh Smith, Chauncey Billups, Josh Smith, Jamal Crawford, Joe Johnson, Joakim Noah, John Salmons, Boris Diaw, Chris Bosh, Dirk Nowitzki, Deron Williams, Tyreke Evans, Carlos Boozer, Chris Kaman, Rudy Gay.

Fantasy Duds: Derrick Rose, Renaldon Balkman, Mike Bibby, Rasheed Wallace, Hedo Turkoglu, Jason Kidd, Ronnie Brewer, Spencer Hawes, Paul Millsap, OJ Mayo.
