In a losing effort, Dirk dropped 38 points and 17 rebounds on the Rockets

Wednesday's NBA Studs:
  • Last night's games were full of excitement from Durant leading the Thunder to a route after trailing by 18 in the first quarter to Evan Turner hitting the game winner to Dirk exploding for 38 points.  Overall, it was a great night for the NBA as well as Fantasy as there were great value picks and the stars came to perform.
  • The guards were led by Kyle Lowry and Randy Foye.  Randy Foye took advantage of no Ty Lawson and an early injury to Nate Robinson by dropping 33 points, 7 assists, and 3 rebounds.  Foye had his season high in points last night and topped the 40 point FanEx mark tallying 46 FanEx points.  Kyle Lowry also is taking advantage if hurt teammates with DeMar DeRozan sidelined with an ankle injury.  Lowry posted his second consecutive 30+ point game scoring 33 points last night against the Magic.  He also added 11 assists and 7 rebounds leading to a 47 point FanEx night.
  • The forwards were led by Kevin Love and Dirk Nowitzki.  Kevin Love now has put together two good games scoring over 30 points and averaging 11 rebounds.  Last night he performed in the usual Kevin Love fashion totally 46 FanEx points coming form 30 points and 14 rebounds. The highlight of the night was Dirk Nowitzki's beat mode performance.  Although his team lost (because they didn't give him the last shot), Dirk dropped 38 points and grabbed 17 rebounds to bring him to a FanEx total of 56 points.
  • The center position was highlighted again by Al Jefferson who had a FanEx total of 48 points.  Al has scored over 20 points in the last 10 games averaging 27 points and 12 rebounds during that stretch.  Last night he led the Bobcats again with 35 points and 11 rebounds.  Al is becoming almost a must start every time he is playing.
