No Dwayne Wade/MIA and no Chris Andersen/MIA spelled trouble for the Heat. Yesterday I wrote that the Bulls roster was constructed similarly to the Pistons, a team that had just handed the Heat a home loss. I called the Heat-Bulls prime time game a coin toss, but it turned out to be an easy win for Chicago. Miami could not handle the Bulls’ big men and the Chicago defense limited LeBron James‘/MIA effectiveness. In other games, Memphis’s offense sputtered against the Clippers, and the Nets looked pitiful against their crosstown rival Knicks. Here is today’s Fantasy Spin.
The Sacramento Kings took advantage of the absence of Eric Bledsoe/PHO and rallied late in the fourth quarter to beat the visiting Suns. It was a key win after the demolition suffered at the hands of the Grizzlies in their last home game, during which most of the starters were benched. The Heat and the Rockets easily handled the visiting Hawks and Celtics respectively. Their star players’ minutes were reduced, much to the chagrin of fantasy players counting on the numbers of Dwight Howard/HOU, James Harden/HOU and LeBron James/MIA. Here is today’s Fantasy Spin.
