Found February 22, 2012 on Hoop Fantasies Fantasy Basketball Blog: should soon have Ayon in a NOLA jersey. Gustavo Ayon's NBA player page doesn't even show him in a Hornets uniform. The rookie power forward has played 26 games after tonight -- starting in nine of them. In Wednesday night's 89-84 win over Cleveland, Ayon had a career night on the glass, grabbing 17 rebounds.

Ayon added nine points (4-7 FG and 1-4 FT), four assists, two steals and a block in 33 minutes. In his last five games, Ayon has averaged 10.2 points (62.9 percent from the field), 8.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.4 steals and a block. He's a poor free-throw shooter (58.3 percent). He's a decent option if you need a four and a guy to watch for the future, especially if New Orleans finally trades Chris Kaman.

Kaman also had a big night with 21 points (10-25 FG and 1-1 FT), 13 rebounds, three assists, a steal, two blocks and four turnovers.

Trevor Ariza was a victim of the Shots Fired Curse, scoring just one point and missing all six of his shots from the field. Ariza proved why I don't trust him.

In 16 minutes, Cavs rookie forward Tristan Thompson posted a 10 and 10 double-double. Alonzo Gee followed up last night's solid play with 13 points (4-13 FG and 4-5 FT), five rebounds, a three and a steal. Not a great night, but better than most of Cleveland's starters.
