Jeffery Taylor – Second night in a row that he got major minutes and made the most out of them. The athletic rookie from Vandy known for his defense absolutely stuffed the sheet: 18 pts / 3 reb / 2 ast / 2 stl / 2 blk
Tobias Harris – he hadn’t played recently in Milwaukee, so his salary was way down. Most of his points came in the 4th quarter, but he might pressure Harkless once he gets settled in.
Beno Udrih – without Nelson playing, Beno had a solid game helping out E’Twaun Moore with the Magic PG duties.
Marreese Speights – nig man against the Magic plus garbage time points. Nice.
Lamar Odom – looked like the L.A. Lamar Odom, pre-Kardashian. Caught fire in the 2nd half against the Jazz.
Trevor Ariza – continues his hot play with the Wizards.
Bradley Beal – seems like the addition of John Wall has done wonders for Mr. Beal… and the whole Wizards team.
Devin Harris – DeShawn Stevenson was out so Devin picked up some extra minutes… 39 total. Hit four 3′s and had 21 points.
Rookies and Trades Can Equal Value
Interesting to note that most of the value plays tonight were either rookies or players involved in a trade this season. It’s all about the V-A-L-U-E.
