Sheridan Hoops Sixth Man Rankings: Week 12

1JAMAL CRAWFORD, G, LA CLIPPERS: Crawford continues to hold down the top spot with his steady play in Lob City, putting up just under 20 ppg on 47% shooting in the past week. Shockingly though, all three of those games came in losses for the Clippers.1
2HornetsRYAN ANDERSON, F, NEW ORLEANS: Anderson had a fantastic week, and is right on Crawford’s heels at the moment. Averaging over 20 ppg in his last 3, Anderson and Crawford make for an interesting battle as the season progresses.2
3ThunderKEVIN MARTIN, G, OKLAHOMA CITY: Martin had an outstanding week shooting the ball, going 57% from the field, and an unreal 64% from beyond the arc. Harden may be in the All Star game this year, but Thunder fans are not complaining.4
4KnicksJ.R. SMITH, G, NEW YORK: Smith has had major issues shooting the ball over the past couple weeks, and that was highlighted on a national stage a night ago, when he shot 3-16 from the field and 1-6 from 3-point land against Boston on TNT. His last 6 games, he is shooting just over 30%. Not good by any means, but he’s still scoring in bunches.3
5WarriorsCARL LANDRY, F, GOLDEN STATE: With injuries hitting Manu Ginobili, and having him now playing on limited minutes, Landry makes his way back into the rankings. His last 4 games, he’s putting up 13 ppg and 6.75 rpg, including a 20 point, 7 rebound performance in a win over the conference leading Thunder.

DROPOUTS: Manu Ginobili, G, San Antonio

FIVE TO WATCH: Ray Allen, G, Miami; J.J. Redick, G, Orlando; Marcus Thornton, G, Sacramento; Jarrett Jack, G, Golden State.
