Kevin Durant $10900 scored 30 points in 19 minutes on Thursday before rolling his ankle. Though it’s not a serious sprain, his status tonight is unknown. Russell Westbrook $11500 might have to carve up L.A. by himself, with a little help from Serge Ibaka $6800.
The Warriors made is 15 straight yesterday and are better than the Pelicans, though win #16 won’t be easy if Anthony Davis $11300 (chest) plays. Nothing is broken, so it’s about pain tolerance. Stephen Curry $10800 (29 PTS, 8 AST) was particularly sharp in Dallas, with his biggest DK fantasy number in nine games.
There’s MVP, and there’s fantasy MVP. James Harden made a strong statement for both last night. LeBron James $11300 (knee) didn’t play in a loss to the Thunder and is questionable tonight in New Orleans. Anthony Davis $11200 had three sub-par games — for him — before jamming his toe on Wednesday near the end of a big win over Dallas.
Overtime. It’s great when your guys are involved, not so much when you’re watching others rack up the ‘extra’ fantasy points. Three of the seven games last night required at least one extra frame.
PHILADELPHIA – Oh, to be a bullfrog along the Schuylkill River on Monday, listening in while Gregg Popovich and Brett Brown walked and talked a few hours before Pop’s world champion Spurs – minus Tim Duncan and Tony Parker – kept Brown’s 76ers winless with a 109-103 victory. “He made me walk with him for an hour and a half today,’’ laughed an unusually amiable Popovich of his longtime assistant and good friend, who’s having a bit of a rough go
Leave it to Jeff Van Gundy to use the holiday season as another outlet for his vastly underrated sense of humor. During Wednesday’s ESPN telecast of New York-Dallas, the analyst said he was thankful that there were not two Eastern Conferences. But as Thanksgiving quickly morphed into the Christmas shopping season, perhaps Van Gundy could ask Santa Claus for another Western Conference. Because that would allow us to throw out the Eastern Conference with all the torn wrapping paper, ugly sweaters and
When is the last time you went to an NBA game and saw a truly great player? And when is the last time you’ve been able to do it on the cheap? Ticket prices in the NBA went up 3.4% compared from last season. This might not seem like much, but it bumped up the cost of an average NBA ticket to $53.98. That means just two tickets are going to set you back over $100, and for the more budget
Okay, so the photo isn’t exactly a toga party, but it’s close enough. The San Antonio Spurs are represented in a commercial that aired on Wednesday, dressed in toga clothes. Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobli, Tony Parker, Patty Mills and Kawhi Leonard, as well as the Spurs mascot The Coyote, all appeared in the commercial for H-E-B Greek Yogurt. As you can imagine, the commercial is quite hilarious.
