So, a nice, solid, seven-game slate of NBA games was turned into a disappointing five game night, all thanks to Jack Frost and the impending (insert media-derived snow based headline) descending on the east coast. THose games are lost from a fantasy perspective and there games you missed will not hep you in your push toward the playoffs as the games will be made up sometime in April. Let’s not dwell on the negative, we still had Anthony Davis toying with the Sixers to keep us entertained.
Things returned to normalcy somewhat Thursday, with less mind-bending performances than we dealt with yesterday. But the NBA is nothing if not a font of strange occurrences, and we had that once again Thursday. The Box Score Breakdown has more.
Who would have thought that the Detroit Pistons, yes, the Detroit Pistons, would be a fountain of fantasy goodness, with players battling each other to see who can put up the most ridiculous line of the night, and not ridiculous in a Josh Smith way? Well, that’s what happened Wednesday, with some ludicrous performances to whet our fantasy appetites. Read about the mesmerizing Pistons and everything else that happened in Wednesday’s Box Score Breakdown.
After the basketball extravaganza we experienced on Monday, Tuesday was always destined to be a let down, and in that respect, it didn’t disappoint. But, even when we’re lacking a plethora of games to digest, there is always something to look at, so that’s what I’ll do, in Tuesday’s Box Score Breakdown.
So, it happened. The Knicks got a win, their first for 2015, something, which at times, looked like may not happen. Aside from that milestone, LaMarcus Aldridge got himself injured banging his hand on DeMarcus Cousins’ knee, himself just returning from an injury, and Marcus Thornton scored 15 points for the Celtics. A mixed bag for guys named or partially named, Marcus.
