How bad are the Philadelphia 76ers? What does their ineptitude mean in daily fantasy leagues? Last night Dallas built a safe 73-29 lead by halftime and coasted home to win by 53 points. Tonight the Sixers are obliged to show up Houston, where the main obstacle for the Rockets will be overconfidence.
To my astonishment, Stephen Curry missed all seven 3-point attempts and the Warriors lost at home. In daily fantasy play, it’s hard to recover from getting your key game (and most expensive player) entirely wrong.
Two of the five NBA games this evening stand out for DFS purposes, with the Cavaliers hosting the Pelicans and the Spurs visiting the Clippers. They could be high-scoring, which is what we want. That’s not to say there won’t be overachievers and bargains in the other three, only that we focus first on those two first.

If Davis’ first two seasons suggest
The first full week of traditional fantasy leagues is in the books, and some of us are off to a great start. If you’re a Roto expert, put that knowledge to profitable use in daily fantasy basketball leagues at DraftKings.
The NBA season got started in a big way last night. Anthony Davis absolutely dominated the Orlando Magic, putting up 26 points, 17 rebounds, two assists, nine blocks and three steals, in which the New Orleans Pelicans defeated the Magic 101-84. The San Antonio Spurs hung their fifth title banner since 1999 and flashed their championship rings as they took on Dallas at home. The Spurs, playing without Tiago Splitter and Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard, outlasted the visiting Mavericks by a
After months of waiting and a summer full of roster change and player movement, the dawn of the 2014-15 NBA regular season is now upon us. Play begins with three games Tuesday night. The New Orleans Pelicans host the Orlando Magic at 8 p.m. (EST). The game will air the local Fox Sports affiliates — FSNOLA and FS Florida, otherwise, you can find it on NBA League Pass. Meanwhile, the NBA on TNT crew will host a doubleheader, starting with the
