We had an interesting night. Most importantly, I would like to know who came up with Three 3 Latvia for Porzingis' nickname. Too good.

 

D'Angelo Russell - He has a nice upward trend going now.

 

Ersan Ilyasova - Up and down. Up and down. He had 23 points on Wednesday.

 

Julius Randle - He was great, but consistency is a problem.

 

Jamal Crawford - Lots of injuries should help.

 

Terrence Jones - Maybe Clint Capela's leash is a little tighter.

 

Alex Len, Mirza Teletovic and Jon Leuer - That's how I'd rank them as pickups. The Suns are losing a lot of games and Tyson Chandler shouldn't be out long. Markieff Morris, too.

 

Joakim Noah - He hasn't been great.

 

Taj Gibson - Ditto. Free Bobby Portis, by the way.

 

Frank Kaminsky - He looks like the winner from the Al Jefferson injury. That could change with less garbage time, though.

 

Jeremy Lamb - Started the second half.

 

Ty Lawson - He was very good, but he has a major hill to climb. Unless you're cutting something you know won't be picked up by someone else, let's see him do it again.

 

Tony Wroten - He's back, but he is awful on nine-cat. Bump him up four spots in eight cat or points.

 

Darrell Arthur - Kenneth Faried was banged up and Nikola Jokic got benched.

 

Cory Joseph - Nice minutes, but low upside.

 

Austin Rivers  - Chris Paul is out for another one.

 

Richaun Holmes - Okafor is out for another game. Holmes had 11 points in 18 minutes.

 

Lucas Nogueira - BEBE! A fun pickup in Dynasty, but not a great add in re-draft at almost any depth... yet.

 

Tyler Ennis - The Bucks wanted to see what Ennis had. Answer: Not much.

 

Lance Stephenson - We gotta see it again. Even more than Lawson.
