Now, here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.

Amir Johnson, Toronto Raptors

19 MIN, 18 PTS, 7-10 FG, 4-8 FT, 7 REB, 2 STL, 2 BLK, 2 TO
It was his first double-figure game since Nov. 25.

Eric Maynor, Utah Jazz

27 MIN, 11 PTS, 4-5 FG, 2-3 FT, 1 3PM, 7 REB, 7 AST, 2 STL, 1 BLK, 2 TO
He’d only have value if Deron Williams went down.

Willie Green, Philadelphia 76ers

45 MIN, 16 PTS, 6-13 FG, 3-3 FT, 1 3PM, 4 REB, 4 AST, 2 STL, 1 BLK, 3 TO
Willie had a good game because Allen Iverson (knee) was out. Unless A.I. is out for an extended period, Willie doesn’t hold much value.

Ersan Ilyasova, Milwaukee Bucks

Will Bynum, Detroit Pistons

James Harden, Oklahoma City Thunder

26 MIN, 14 PTS, 5-11 FG, 2-2 FT, 2 3PM, 3 REB, 8 AST, 1 STL, 1 BLK, 1 TO

39 MIN, 26 PTS, 8-13 FG, 7-9 FT, 3 3PM, 6 REB, 10 AST, 5 STL, 1 BLK, 2 TO

Jose Juan Barea, Dallas Mavericks

35 MIN, 23 PTS, 8-15 FG, 4-5 FT, 3 3PM, 2 REB, 3 AST, 1 STL, 2 TO
