“Line of the Night”


For those of you who don’t know, this is a post I do every day or night that pays homage to the guys out there ballin’ hard and making their fantasy owners feel all warm and fuzzy inside. There were only six games, which made it a pretty slow Monday, giving guys a much better shot at taking the cake. Here’s the latest edtion of “Line of the Night” for Monday, February 13th, 2012.

Tonight’s top performer is none other than the one, the only, King James. This guy is a top three pick every single year, so it should come as no surprise that he would come up with a top line for a single night. Actually, I’m sure his owners expect him to go out there and get them top value every night. I mean, that’s why you draft him in the top three right? He’s supposed to be a top guy every night and every year. Well, go ahead and check out his line while I sit here and wish that he was still playing for the Cavs:

  • 35 Pts (16-21 FG, 3-3 FT)/8 Reb/3 Ast/1 Stl/2 TO

Hail to the King!

While “The King” reigns supreme for a night, let’s take a look at the guys who came oh-so-close to being awarded the “Line of the Night” award. Rounding out the top 5 are:

2. Carlos Delfino – 24 Pts (8-12 FG, 5-8 3PT, 3-3 FT)/1 Reb/4 Ast/2 Stl/3 TO

3. Chris Kaman – 27 Pts (12-22 FG, 3-4 FT)/13 Reb/2 Ast/2 Stl/1 Blk/3 TO

4. Louis Williams – 23 Pts (7-14 FG, 2-5 3PT, 7-9 FT)/3 Reb/4 Ast/2 Stl/1 Blk/1 TO

T5. Al Jefferson – 14 Pts (6-14 FG, 0-1 3PT, 2-2 FT)/12 Reb/1 Ast/2 Stl/2 Blk

T5. Gustavo Ayon – 13 Pts (6-7 FG, 1-2 FT)/9 Reb/1 Ast/1 Stl/3 Blk

*Suprising Line of the Night*

  • Gustavo Ayon (2% owned) – (See line above)

Over the past month you’ve probably heard some talk about Gustavo Ayon, a 26 year-old rookie who was getting some quality minutes for Monty Williams’ Hornets. Many analysts recommended adding him to your roster considering his ability to put up a wide variety of stats and efficiently. When the Hornet’s front court suffered more and more injuries (Jason Smith, Carl Landry) and with Chris Kaman at home, Ayon looked primed to put up big numbers. I do think he can put up good lines occasionally, however, I recommend leaving him for deep leagues only. With Kaman back and playing (and ruining the fantasy value of his teammates) I expect that Ayon’s value will be limited.

While these guys weren’t the best of the best, they certainly had their owners smiling after their performance. As I always say, in the words of Cleveland fans (myself included), “There’s always next year,” or, in this case, next game.

That’s it for this edition of “Line of the Night,” but make sure to check back tonight/tomorrow to see who takes home the award.
