Elton Brand started at center in the second half on Sunday, moving Chris Kaman to the bench, and he finished with 14 points, six rebounds and two steals in 23 minutes.

EB is averaging career-lows in nearly every category this season, including minutes (22 per game). Even when he plays he hasn't been allowed to go to work in the post, which is his forte, instead relying heavily on assisted mid-range jumpers. His role is beginning to change, however, and in the past five games he's averaging 13.0 points, 8.6 rebounds and 1.0 blocks. A starting gig is within his reach, making him a decent pickup if you need a big man.
