Sheridan Hoops Sixth Man Rankings: Week 15

1JAMAL CRAWFORD, G, LA CLIPPERS: When the recently returned Chris Paul has as good of a game as he did a night ago, it can be hard to get your numbers. That happened to Crawford. The Clippers are on a four-game winning streak, with JCrossover putting up 17 per game.1
2ThunderKEVIN MARTIN, G, OKLAHOMA CITY: Like Crawford, had a quiet night on Prime Time a night ago. Thanks to a few blowout scores, Martin’s minutes weren’t as high as normal, but that shouldn’t be held against him. One of those games saw Martin put up 16 points in 21 minutes vs. the Suns.2
3HornetsRYAN ANDERSON, F, NEW ORLEANS: A huge week for the gunner. Not only did the cellar-dwelling Hornets manage to win three of four games, and Anderson put up great numbers, averaging 19.8 points per game, including a 31 point outburst vs. Detroit.4
4MagicJ.J. REDICK, G, ORLANDO:  Returned from his shoulder injury with mixed results. He shot the ball fine, played well, but his team’s performance in a blowout loss to Atlanta kept his minutes down. The Magic will need him, too, because they can’t do with any more injuries.5
5KnicksJ.R. SMITH, G, NEW YORK: Smith’s only good performance this week was in a home loss to Toronto. Thanks to Carmelo Anthony’s MVP-caliber performance this season, the Knicks still look like contenders. But Smith’s chucking habits have hurt them in certain stretches as of late.3


FIVE TO WATCH: Ray Allen, G, Miami; Manu Ginobili, G, San Antonio;  Jarrett Jack, G, Golden State; Carl Landry, F, Golden State; JaVale McGee, C, Denver.
