NBA Nightly Update 3/11/13

Will Bynum- In Bynum’s 19 minutes of action, he was able to score 12 points for the Pistons. They lost again on the road, but it was nice to see Bynum scoring the ball. He’s been in a little slump so this was a step in the right direction.

Derrick Favors- On the winning side of the Pistons-Jazz game was Derrick Favors, who got the start again while Millsap is injured. In his 21 minutes of game time, he posted 6 points, 8 rebounds, and 3 blocks. This was a down game for him, but he was still able to contribute and that’s a good sign. The Jazz have also been playing poorly lately, so getting a win is crucial for their playoff chances.

Jarrett Jack- The Warriors crushed the Knicks at home last night. Jarrett Jack was unfortunately not able to contribute to much of the game even though he received 27 minutes of playing time. On 2-7 shooting, he scored 4 points and added 2 rebounds and an assist. After his impressive run about a month ago, he has really cooled off. Hopefully he can get back into a groove sometime soon.

Iman Shumpert- Shumpert and the Knicks got blown out on the road by the Warriors. Shumpert started and played quite a bit, but his only real contribution to the team effort last night was in 8 points on 3-9 shooting. He is a great defensive player, but you would like to see more contribution from him when he gets 27 minutes of action.

Thaddeus Young- Young and the 76ers were able to win a big game at home against the Nets last night. In 36 minutes of play, he shot 6-9 for 16 points and added 10 rebounds and 3 assists. He has been on a tear scoring the ball lately so the 76ers were bound to finally get a win.
