Player of the night

G Rajon Rondo - Celtics
@ Mavericks
19 points, 15 rebounds, 14 assists

If you ever wanted to know how much Kevin Garnett means to the Celtics, look no further than the effect he's had on his coach and young point guard. Chicago's own Doc Rivers was seen as a punchline after leading Boston to one the worst records in the NBA two years ago without KG. Now? He's the ultimate player's coach, kind of like basketball's Dusty Baker, only affective.

And does anyone think Rondo would have turned into such a monster without Garnett? He's one of the three best points in the East right now (along with Derrick Rose and Devin Harris), and he's in a perfect position to make a bunch of easy plays and never worry about carrying his team. Rondo is a joy to watch and has been a stellar fantasy player all year.

Check out Thursday's other star (and an ultra shameless plug) after the jump...

Also staring...

F Michael Beasley - Heat
@ Bulls
21 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 blocks

Maybe it's about time we stop making fun of Michael Beasley. The rookie forward has struggled this year, no diggity no doubt, but he's far from the bust some are making him out to be.

The Bulls had no answer for him yesterday, as B-Easy scored seemingly at will. Perhaps the most impressive part of the performance was its efficiency: Beasley finished the game 9-of-10 from the field. You can't ask for much more in fantasy basketball.


If you're like me and all your basketball thoughts right now revolve around the Bulls trading for Amare Stoudemire, check out my other blog, Tremendous Upside Potential, for the latest.
