1. Kevin Love and Chris Paul Are Back
Love made his first appearance of the season last Friday and has double-doubles in both games he has played. Last season as a rookie he made two three-pointers in 81 games. He already has four three-pointers and is becoming a very versatile player.
CP3 returned with a bang with 15 points, 15 assists, eight steals, six rebounds, one three, and one block in 38 minutes Friday. He should continue his excellent play, and the eight steals was a great sign for the rest of the season.
2. Al Harrington Is on Fire
Al has scored 26, 27, 14, and 22 over his past four games with seven three-pointers. He pulled down a season-high 14 rebounds Sunday and is having a solid all-around fantasy season.
3. Kevin Durant Is Having a Fantasy MVP Season
The third-year forward is averaging 28.1 points, seven rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.7 steals, 1.2 three-pointers, and 0.8 blocks per game. He has scored at least 33 points in three of his past four games and is the third-ranked fantasy player in an eight-category league.
4. Greg Oden Is Hurt Again
Oden was having a solid season until he fractured his knee yesterday and will be out for the season.
5. The Nets Finally Win a Game, Have Viable Fantasy Options
Courtney Lee scored a season-high 27 points last Friday when the team beat the Bobcats. Chris Douglas-Roberts had another solid game Sunday, scoring 26 points with three steals vs. the Knicks. Brook Lopez has established himself as an elite fantasy big, and Devin Harris has been playing better.
