Michael Beasley got to bask in the love from the MSG faithful in Thursday’s 102-93 win thanks to a herculean effort of 32 points and 12 rebounds on 13-of-20 shooting.
The Garden came alive when Beasley took this game over in the second half, and they serenaded him with MVP chants throughout the fourth quarter. He was electric tonight and established a new season high in scoring. While Beasley is certainly a scorer befitting of deep league ownership, the fact that the rest of his line included just one triple and one assist illustrates the fact that his hollow game necessitates gaudy point totals to sustain fantasy value. We’ll see how long he can keep this positive momentum and he’s at least worth a roll of the dice in his next game.
