Saturday wasn’t my night. Though it was great to watch Lou Williams score a career-high 36 in Cleveland, who could have predicted that?
Did they widen the rim? There were a ridiculous number of points scored on Friday. Phoenix (122), Toronto (124), Memphis (117), San Antonio (121), Denver (117) and Dallas (140) all exceeded my most optimistic forecast.
Yesterday, I all but guaranteed the Bulls would win and they lost by 15. But we don’t care about team results in DFS. Using six Chicago players in my DraftKings lineup paid off handsomely.
You can’t win ‘em all. It wasn’t my night, but congratulations to those who took home big bucks from DraftKings on Big Wednesday.
It’s Big Wednesday at DraftKings, with a trio of huge fantasy contests, each worth $100,000 in cash.
Monday was a strange night in the NBA. The lowly Nuggets, blown out the day before, shocked the previously red-hot Cavs in Cleveland. Pau Gasol (calf) and Derrick Rose (hamstring) didn’t play, but the Bulls beat the Clippers anyway, thanks to Taj Gibson and Jimmy Butler.
As predicted, Golden State was up 74-55 at halftime and rolled to a 21-point victory over the Lakers on Sunday. Stephen Curry and Marreese Speights were great to own, but my attempt to stack seven Warriors did not pay off. The shocker was Houston scoring just 69 points — and winning! That ruined the day of everyone who paid top dollar for James Harden and Dwight Howard.
Good morning! Many of you are focused on the NFL every Sunday, but don’t forget there are two ways to play daily fantasy hoops. Contests close at 1:00 ET for all four NBA games and at 6:00 ET for the three best ones.
