Carlos Boozer scored 12 points with 13 rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 30 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday.
The Scoop:He shot just 5-of-15 from the field and wasn't quite as hot as his 20-point, 10-board game on Tuesday. Nobody will bother trading for Boozer in your fantasy league, but he's worth owning as a low-upside guy for his points and boards.
Boozer had a season-high 20 points and 10 boards Tuesday.
The Scoop:Boozer was 10 of 14 from the field. That's his most attempts and it would have been more had Kobe Bryant not decided to hog the ball in the fourth quarter and take eight shots as the Lakers nearly blew an easy win. Don't use Boozer in fantasy action.
The Lakers pulled out a five-point road win in Atlanta on Tuesday, aided by Carlos Boozer's 20 points (10-of-14 shooting), 10 rebounds and two assists.
The Scoop:Boozer was torched defensively but made up the difference with solid rebounding and shooting, which is a nice sight after Sunday's dud (six points on 3-of-13 shooting). He's barely clinging to 14-team value this season, but has picked up the pace over the past week and is worth owning if you need points, boards and solid FG percentages.
The Scoop:It's the latest illustration of Boozer's complete and utter ineptitude on the defensive end of the floor. The cries are growing louder for more Davis and less Boozer, and the veteran's offensive numbers are among the emptiest in the NBA. After Byron Scott threatened lineup changes, Boozer could be in line to lose his spot to Davis sooner rather than later. Stay tuned.
