Bloopers have always been one of my favorite categories of videos and I periodically search for them in the NBA. Thankfully, the Association usually provides a lot of content of that kind, like this clip from the Thunder – Timberwolves game
I know Oklahoma needs all the help they can get defensively but this seems a bit too much. Also love the tenacity of the guy on the right, who keeps mopping after drawing contact. It’s a tough job but someone has to do it, kudos to him.
Moving on to fantasy, I’m pretty pleased with last week’s suggestions as both Chuma Okeke and Grant Williams have been solid, while Jae Crowder has been very good and will continue to be must roster with Cameron Johnson still sidelined. Montrezl Harrell on the other end of the spectrum did everything he could to validate the “Sell” label and is a drop in all leagues.

Isaiah Roby: Roby is sneakily having a top 80 fantasy month, mainly due to the 5.8 rebounds, 1.6 steals, and 0.9 blocks and has looked as the most competent from the available centers in OKC. With little competition for minutes currently he is worth a look for this week and beyond (39% owned)
Marvin Bagley: Is it finally happening? Has the time come that I can recommend Bagley in fantasy? We are living in a weird timeline for sure. His game was never very fantasy-friendly but with Isaiah Stewart struggling and Detroit going nowhere he will have opportunities as the season comes to a close. His contributions are limited to points, rebounds, turnovers, and fg% but if you need a boost in those categories he is worth a look (46% owned).
Immanuel Quickley: Coach Thibodeau is having a really bad season in New York and that had unfortunately affected Quickley all season long, as his playing time was sporadic at best. Even with Kemba Walker inactive he averaged under 22 minutes and stayed on the court only when he was too hot for Thibs to substitute without an orchestrated booing from the Madison Square crowd. However, during the last two weeks he has increased his playing time and production, just in time for fantasy playoffs. Make sure he is not floating on your waiver wire (41% owned)
Evan Fournier: In fantasy playoffs, every player on your team has to earn the right to be there through his performances. Fournier has simply not done that in the last three weeks and has been an active burden in the fg% department. His triples can be streamed from the wire so use his spot for streaming to increase your fantasy playoff chances (73% owned).
Devonte’ Graham: Another player that is actively hurting your team lately, particularly with his percentages and complete lack of defense is Graham. After the arrival of CJ McCollum in New Orleans, Graham’s usage has vanished and is thus outside the top 250 in the last month. You know what to do (57% owned).
