The fantasy basketball season may be at the All-Star break, but plenty of players were putting up big numbers before the turn. Here are some of the hottest performances from Week 16 of the fantasy season.

PG Steven Curry, Golden State Warriors – Curry averaged 26 points in two games last week to go along with 7.5 dimes and five rebounds. Curry dropped 10 triples as well and carried many fantasy owners from behind the arc in Week 16.

PG Brandon Knight, Milwaukee Bucks – Knight dropped 22 points in both of the team’s games this past week. He also added 13 assists, seven rebounds, and three triples.  He averaged 43 minutes per game and the one-guard has consistently seen playing time despite Milwaukee’s plummeting record.

PG Kendall Marshall, Los Angeles Lakers – Despite all the attention on Steve Nash this past week, Marshall had another big outing. He recorded 14 points with an incredible 17 dimes on Thursday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Marshall has continued to establish himself as the team’s number one point guard and will be worth holding onto as long as he can hold onto the starting spot.

PF Blake Griffin, Los Angeles Clippers – In his two games in Week 16, Griffin once again posted numbers that were well above his season average. Blake averaged 32 points with 10.5 rebounds this past week and the superstar has not slowed down since PG Chris Paul has returned to the offense. Blake is truly having a career fantasy season.
