Beast of the Night: Channing Frye posted 33 points, four boards, one assist and made nine three-pointers. He shot 67 percent (12-18) from the floor and had no turnovers. While his production in April has been pretty poor, Frye has had a pretty successful season, as he’s managed to average top-50 numbers. With his combination of threes, blocks and solid free-throw shooting, he should maintain solid value next season.
Lines for Discussion:
Jeff Green: 8-20 FG (40%), 4-5 FT (80%), 20 Pts, 15 Reb, 4 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 TO; Yep, you guessed it â€“ Boston’s Big Four sat this one out. At least we know Green still has some life in him. If the Big Four get another night of rest Wednesday, Green should make for another nice spot start.
Brook Lopez: 12-23 FG (52%), 7-8 FT (88%), 31 Pts, 3 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Stl, 3 TO; This was a disappointing season for Lopez, who took steps back in the rebounding, assists, blocks, steals, field-goal percentage and free-throw percentage columns. He’s young enough to surprise us with a comeback next season â€“ assuming a 2011-12 season will even exist.
Anthony Randolph: 10-20 FG (50%), 4-5 FT (80%), 24 Pts, 10 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 Stl, 3 TO; Don’t let this late-season surge trick you into thinking Randolph will be a stud next season. With Michael Beasley and Kevin Love still on contract with the Timberwolves next season, expectations for Randolph in 2011-12 should be kept in check.
Jermaine O’Neal: 15 Pts, 13 Reb, 1 Ast, 5 Blk, 2 TO
Ryan Anderson: 18 Pts, 3 threes, 14 Reb, 1 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 Blk, 1 TO
Jordan Farmar: 20 Pts, 3 Reb, 9 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO
Jason Maxiell: 4 Pts, 14 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Blk, 2 TO
Joey Dorsey: 10 Pts, 20 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 3 TO
Jerryd Bayless: 20 Pts, 2 threes, 4 Reb, 5 Ast, 4 Stl, 1 Blk, 6 TO
Drew Gooden: 19 Pts, 11 Reb, 5 Ast, 2 Blk, 2 TO
Goran Dragic: 15 Pts, 2 threes, 10 Reb, 7 Ast, 4 Stl, 1 TO
Chris Andersen: 14 Pts, 12 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Stl, 4 Blk
Jared Dudley: 26 Pts, 5 threes, 8 Reb, 3 Ast, 5 Stl
