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.
The most interesting and meaningful of ten NBA games on Wednesday is not necessarily the one to focus on in daily fantasy action. The 18-2 Warriors host the 16-4 Rockets, but there are question marks galore.
I hope you Beat the Pro — our own Chris Sheridan — last night for an easy two bucks and a share of the $50,000 prize money. The boss finished in 5,568th place to earn a $4 payout and is satisfied with his performance. “Hey, I picked Dirk on his worst night of the season, I got beat by more than 5,000 people, and I still doubled my money. That is why I love DraftKings.”
The best record in the NBA is now shared by the Memphis Grizzlies and the Golden State Warriors, thanks to Stephen Curry finally sinking a game-winning 3-pointer for the ‘Dubs to give them a victory over the Orlando Magic last night. At 15-2, the teams sit atop the Western Conference. Both were highly regarded coming into this season, but neither was expected to get off to a start this good. We will get to judge them against each other in a
Leave it to Jeff Van Gundy to use the holiday season as another outlet for his vastly underrated sense of humor.

Of course, there were plenty all over social media, but these were the few that I went with to share. We all know it’s the time of year for family and friends to spend time together and share what they are thankful for. It’s also the time of year in which you’re allowed to eat as much as you want, as fast as
The only major upset on Monday was the Pacers beating the Mavs in Dallas. If you had unlikely hero Donald Sloan in daily lineups, don’t spend all the winnings in one place.
It’s been a tumultuous week for the Cleveland Cavaliers. After a solid four-game win streak against teams like the New Orleans Pelicans and Atlanta Hawks, the script has been flipped in Northeast Ohio. The Cavs are now on a four-game losing streak. An ugly losing streak. At times, we’ve seen glimpses of the brilliance of coach David Blatt’s offense. Unfortunately, at the same time, we’ve seen a nonexistent defense and a let’s-stand-around-and-watch-someone-dribble offense.
