Friday wasn’t my best night in daily leagues. Three games went to overtime, affecting minutes. The Bulls forgot they are a defensive team and barely outscored the winless Sixers.
If you predicted lopsided wins on Thursday for the Rockets and Blazers, congratulations. Hope you cashed in big time. I tried to take advantage of lineup changes, inserting the four Spurs who inherited extra minutes, and — thanks to Dwight Howard — still managed to turn a small profit.
Thursday night features a national TV doubleheader. Plenty of points should be scored in a pair of very interesting games that illustrate how the daily fantasy hoops challenge is never the same twice. There were almost too many bargains to choose from last night, definitely not enough tonight.
Thanks, Mamba. West coast games start at this old man’s bedtime. While I slept, Kobe Bryant scored 55.75 fantasy points, Markieff Morris added 45.5 and Isaiah Thomas 45.75 to boost my total to 299.5, a personal best for this young season. The lineup I recommended in yesterday’s Spin paid off in six contests: $73.50 in cash and a free $27 ticket to the huge event tonight!
