There were 13 games, there were injuries, there were massive lines. Just a typical Wednesday in the NBA. Oh yeah, and Brook Lopez is pretty good at basketball and he’s close to the fantasy playoff MVP.
Are you still playing? I’m sure you are, especially if you’re still reading the Box Score Breakdown. In that case, congratulations are in order. But, the hard work is just beginning and shrewd moves, to counter the myriad of injuries that are occurring is the name of the game at the pointy end of the season. That, and just make sure you have James Harden, because that man is awesome.
The most important time of the fantasy basketball season is upon us and the studs are starting to drop like flies. Further worries crept up with Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins today, and as an owner, there’s not much you can do about it. If you own James Harden, though, 50 points feels pretty sweet.
If you didn’t see the Cavaliers take on the Spurs, you missed out on one of the most entertaining regular season NBA games in recent memory and fans, like you and me, would be very lucky to see that matchup again in the NBA Finals. Also, Rudy Gobert is unfair.
The Clippers big three of Chris Paul, Matt Barnes, and J.J. Redick (yep) shut down the Russell Westbrook show and provided their own form of fireworks Wednesday, but as we can’t have nice things, injuries once again threatened to derail many fantasy teams heading into the playoffs. At least we got Kemba Walker back…
