The highlight of a five-game NBA slate, in real life and DFS, is the Warriors going for their 42nd consecutive home victory against James Harden $10600 and the Rockets. Listed as questionable with a hand injury but probable in my book, Harden put up great numbers on Saturday, except for ten turnovers. [Read more…]
