Carmelo Anthony had 26 points and a season-high 20 rebounds in the Friday loss to the Clippers. Anthony made only 4 of his 23 shot attempts, but made all 16 of his free throws.
We have grown accustomed to seeing scoring outputs like this from Anthony, but pulling down 20 rebounds is not something we see on a daily basis. Friday night's performance marked his third double-double of the New Year, raising his average up to nine boards per game. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Adam Lind went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, two runs, and two RBI, on Wednesday night vs the Dodgers.
On Wednesday night, Lind connected with a hanging breaking ball in the first inning off Dodgers starter Joe Wieland for his fifth home run of the season. Quietly, Lind has become one of the more serviceable fantasy options at first base, as his slash line sits at an impressive .323/.396/.591, while his five home runs and 15 RBI are just enough power to render him an imposing bat in the middle of the Brewers order. It is tough to tell how long he will be able to maintain this type of production, but the promising sign is that once upon a time, Lind was a legitimate threat in the batters box while playing in Toronto, so he might just be returning to form.
