Player of the Night
Dwayne Wade, Miami Heat
vs. Cleveland Cavaliers
41 points, 9 dimes, 7 boards, 7 steals
LeBron and his merry men may have won the game, but Wade walks away with the distinction of being our Player of the Night.
Follow along after the jump...
In what was one of the most entertaining games of the season, Wade and 'Bron played the good old 'anything you can do, I can do better' game and left fantasy owners gasping for air.
Wade has become such a complete player that his fantasy value is skyrocketing. Seven steals? That's insanity, especially when you consider that reaching a number like that combined with scoring 41 points illustrates just how hard he plays on both ends of the court.
vs. Miami Heat
42 points, 4 dimes, 8 boards, 6-for-7 from long distance
David West, New Orleans Hornets
vs. Philadelphia 76ers
30 points, 10 boards, 5 dimes
Russel Westbrook, Oklahoma City Thunder
vs. Dallas Mavericks
17 points, 10 boards, 10 dimes, 2 steals
Bust of the Night
Baron Davis, Los Angeles Clippers
vs. San Antonio Spurs
10 points, 8 dimes, 5 boards, 4-for-14 from the floor
Is Baron Davis even having fun playing basketball anymore?
Stuck in the succubus that is the Los Angeles Clippers franchise, Davis' fantasy value has plummeted and shows no sign of rebounding.
His supporting cast is horrendous and Dunleavy restricts Davis from playing the up tempo style that suited him so well in Golden State.
It kills me to see BD go through this.
