So tonight, the focus is on the bruisers in the middle. These guys may not get you many points, but they will shoot a high percentage from the field, block some shots, and pull down all of your rebounds. Case in point, last night Noah had just 10 points but was 4-5 from the field with 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal, and 3 blocks. Not a bad all-around night for a guy that I thought was trash ever since the Bulls took him last year on Draft Day.
Godzilla had just 6 points on 2-4 from the field and 2-2 from the line, but pulled down 15 rebounds and contributed a block. The Trailblazers have packed it in for the season. They are in the loaded West and have lost Brandon Roy, probably for the year. But this man in the middle continues to pull solid minutes and definitely should be considered in deeper leagues. Who would have thought that at this point, I would have rather the Bulls signed him over Ben Wallace two offseasons ago. But then again, in retrospect, the smart money was to just keep Tyson Chandler.
