The Raptors continued their surge with a road win over the Wizards. Kyle Lowry/TOR and DeMar DeRozan/TOR have emerged as one of the top guard duos in the league; last night they were supported by 18 points off the bench from Patrick Patterson/TOR. The Warriors shrugged off fatigue and beat the Hawks by a point. Continuing the theme of close games, James Harden/HOU poured in 37 points leading the Rockets to a 102-100 win over the Knicks. The Clippers beat the Mavericks, but lost Chris Paul/LAC to injury. There are nine games on the NBA schedule tonight. Here is today’s Fantasy Spin.

OK. Rookie coach Brian Shaw somewhat explained the decision on the team’s Twitter account.
