So many crazy things happened tonight. Russell Westbrook went bonkers and Anthony Davis also lit it up. The waiver wire is on fire, too.

 

Kenneth Faried - Big finish coming.

 

J.J. Redick - The Clippers are razor thin right now.

 

Jordan Hill - Another double-double.

 

Jeremy Lin - He's kind of on fire right now. Hopefully Swaggy P doesn't mess him up.

 

Mo Williams - Kemba is coming back in a couple weeks.

 

Ersan Ilyasova - You know you're going to add him and he'll fall apart. I'd do it, though.

 

Danilo Gallinari - He is a big injury risk, but the Nuggets don't care.

 

Kelly Olynyk - He's not 100 percent, but he should be owned in all leagues now.

 

Isaiah Canaan - CANAAN BALL! I'd add him and see what happens.

 

Andrea Bargnani - His calf is going to give out, but he should be owned until that happens. Don't expect 25 points too often, though.

 

Zaza Pachulia - Kidd hates John Henson.

 

Tony Allen - Not sexy, but he'll be a top-125 guy the rest of the way.

 

Jae Crowder - Maybe he earned more run, but he gets some serious playing time at the four.

 

Jodie Meeks - A 20-point game, but we have to see it again.

 

Ed Davis - I'd like him more if he could make FTs.

 

Greivis Vasquez - He should have another game to run the point.

 

Henry Walker - Luol Deng (thigh) might miss time.

 

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - A rebounding machine, but not much else.

 

Jerami Grant - Lots of potential and was a +15 tonight.

 

Langston Galloway - He didn't have a dime, but he's putting up decent lines. Shane Larkin was garbage tonight, too.

 

Alexis Ajinca - Should hold value without Ryno.

 

Will Barton - Garbage time was a factor, but he should play 20-25 minutes.

 

Dewayne Dedmon - He might stay in the starting lineup and could be close to his eight-point, eight-board game quite a bit. He should have some blocks.

 

Gary Neal - Kevin Martin only played 30 minutes, which means Neal won't play more than 22 or so most nights. He also played in garbage time.

 

Marvin Williams - He probably won't stay as a starter despite a big 18-point game.
