Tuesday lived up to expectations with two great NBA games. The Mavericks are out after falling short in Houston, and those amazing Spurs prevailed in L.A. to put the Clippers on the brink.
Of the three teams that faced elimination on Sunday, only the Mavericks survived. Emergency starters J..J. Barea and Al-Farouq Aminu were outstanding.
It’s a Saturday TV quadruple-header for NBA fans. Two afternoon games in the East, two evening games in the West.
Every time he steps on the court, Russell Westbrook $11800 creates the most important decision in daily fantasy. Yesterday in a losing cause, he scored 54 points and an amazing 80.8 FPTS at DraftKings, but he may not play in tonight’s must-win.
Wow! If you keyed on the Mavericks-Nuggets game last night, congratulations. Danilo Gallinari was unconscious with 47 points and the final score (in double OT) was a mind-boggling 144-143.
A 13-game slate means plenty of choices in daily NBA contests at DraftKings. Of the four players with 5-digit salaries, James Harden $11000 is probably the safest play, as he leads the Rockets into San Antonio.
What do James Harden, Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook and LeBron James have in common? They’re all legitimate MVP candidates, of course. But what else does that Awesome Foursome have in common? In a potential playoff series against the defending NBA champion San Antonio Spurs, they can all expect to see an individual matchup with Kawhi Leonard. In case you’ve been transfixed by March Madness, the Spurs are looking like a championship contender. Again. If you want some perspective, my son Andrew was born
There’s only one NBA game on Monday, not originally scheduled. The Blazers are in Brooklyn to make up for the Jan. 26 blizzard cancellation. LaMarcus Aldridge, Nicolas Batum and Chris Kaman did not even make the trip.
