Merry Christmas! Hope everyone is enjoying a day off and gets some quality time with family and friends. Thursday is a five-game showcase for the NBA, starting at noon Eastern, and the $200K Holiday Classic at Draft Kings will make someone $25,000 richer.
The NBA takes off Christmas Eve, so there are no games or daily action this evening. To celebrate the return of pro hoops on Thursday, the $200K Holiday Classic at Draft Kings will make someone $25,000 richer.
A visibly drained Jimmy Butler got off the team bus and walked through the tunnels of American Airlines Arena feeling under the weather. As he entered the locker room on December 14 in Miami, the 25-year-old swingman showed the exhausted demeanor of a player who’s led the NBA in minutes played and miles travelled per game since October of 2013. His availability for the game against Miami should have been uncertain. But with Joakim Noah sidelined with an ankle injury, Butler would not let his already-shorthanded teammates face off against
The superstars will be out on Thursday night. In daily hoops we don’t care who wins, the ‘perfect’ game is fast-paced, with overtime. Or triple OT, like the masterpiece last night between the Grizzlies and Spurs.

Stephen Curry $10800 (29 PTS, 8 AST) was particularly sharp in Dallas, with his biggest DK fantasy number in nine games.
The Golden State Warriors set their franchise record for consecutive wins in a row on Saturday night with their defeat of the Chicago Bulls 112-102. It was their 12th straight victory, giving them an NBA-best 17-2 record. Golden State’s win ended their five game losing streak at the United Center. The Bulls were the first real test the Warriors have faced during their now twelve game win streak, earning victories along the way against lesser teams like the Lakers, Jazz and
For Derrick Rose, actions speak louder than words. He wore a shirt that said “I Can’t Breathe” during shootaround against the Golden State Warriors on Saturday. The Chicago Bulls point guard was referring to the last words from Eric Garner, an African-American man who died from a chokehold of a New York City police officer in July. A grand jury’s recent decision not to indict the officer has caused controversy across America for a higher accountably of police officers. Rose’s decision has
Not a single SheridanHoops staff member picked Chicago Bulls guard Jimmy Butler to win this year’s Most Improved Player award, but nearly a quarter of the way through this season, Butler would appear the runaway winner. The Marquette product scored at least 20 points in a game just five times a season ago, but has reached that number eight times in his last nine games including a 26-point, five assist performance in Sunday’s win over Brooklyn. Butler says his confidence and
