NBA Nightly Update 2/27/13


Will Bynum- Bynum and the Pistons beat the Wizards by one on the road last night and this was Bynum’s first game back since his suspension. He played 14 minutes, but wasn’t productive, going 1-7 from the field and a 3/2 assist to turnover ratio. He should start to play better when he gets back to his regular minutes.

Derrick Favors- If you happened to watch the Hawks-Jazz game last night, you got a great look at Derrick Favors as a starter. Utah’s usual PF Paul Millsap was out for the game, so Favors took his place and had a stat line of 17 points, 15, rebounds,3 assists, and 3 blocks. He made the best of his opportunity and expect to see more performances like that next year when Millsap leaves in FA.

Jarrett Jack- Last night the Warriors played a great game against the Knicks but came up short on the road. Jack didn’t have a great shooting game, but he still scored 14 points off the bench. The real story though was Stephen Curry, who had the most points in an NBA game this season with 54.

Anthony Morrow- Dallas lost on the road last night against the Grizzlies, and Morrow did not see any game action.

Iman Shumpert- Shumpert was on the winning end of the Warriors-Knicks shootout. He started for the Knicks and got 22 minutes of playing time, but he was very inefficient on offense. Shumpert continued to prove why he is a valuable asset to the Knicks, however, by playing great defense and getting 6 steals.
