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.

Behind the brilliant play of Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and the unlikely hero, Darren Collison, the Clippers rallied to beat the Thunder 101-99, sending the series back to Oklahoma City tied 2-2.
With the trade deadline rapidly approaching, rumors have been rampant around the league throughout the day. Can Cleveland find a taker for Luol Deng? How serious is Sacramento about moving MIP candidate Isaiah Thomas? Will the New York Knicks finally trade Iman Shumpert? Those are some of the many burning questions as general managers try to determine what will be the best course of action for their respective franchises. Some minor deals have already gone down on Wednesday, and plenty more
