• Nicolas Batum
    G/F, Charlotte Hornets

    Nicolas Batum broke out of his slump with extreme prejudice on Friday, blowing up for 21 points on 8-of-14 shooting (five 3s) with six rebounds and seven assists.

    Nothing like a game against the Knicks to wake up the dead, or the slumping players in fantasy. Whichever. At the end of the day, it was what the doctor ordered to revitalize Batum from the stench of his putrid slump. Pick him up if he was dropped. Sometimes all it takes is a confidence-building performance for a player to find his groove.
