Yes, the Sheridan Hoops Freeroll returns this Friday, with no entry fee, no strings attached and $300 in cash to the top 15 finishers.
It was raining three-pointers in Houston. Jeremy Lin (28 PTS, 9 AST) hit five of the Rockets’ team record 23 triples, which equals the NBA mark. James Harden (18 PTS, 7 AST, 3 STL) and Chandler Parsons (16 PTS, 8 REB) added four apiece, and the bench knocked down another nine. As a team, they shot 23-40 from deep (57.5%) and scored 140 points, 77 in the first half.
That was hardly the tight defensive game we expected. The Bulls had seven players score in double figures and still lost by ten. Taj Gibson (10 PTS, 11 REB, 5 BLK) made another start for Joakim Noah (plantar fasciitis) while Carlos Boozer (10 PTS, 5 REB) played just 23 minutes in his return from a sore hamstring.
Although every day is a brand new ‘season’ for daily fantasy basketball leagues, I tend to think in weeks. Mondays begin with a $100 bankroll, which is spent roughly $15 at a time, making sure it lasts through Sunday. Any profits early in the week get reinvested.
