We’re now in Week Four, but the speed of the events has been surprisingly rapid. Without counting injuries, this may be a great opportunity to buy low or sell high.
DeMarcus Cousins with 2.4 3pts, 1.9 stl, 1.9 blk, 28.6 points, and 13.7 rebounds is an incredible line, but perhaps unsustainable. More incredible are the Stranger Things in FT so far this season. Andre Drummond shooting 75% and Clint Capela 78% from the line. Nobody would’ve believed that in August.
Kristaps Porzingis is now a first-round player, a position that he looks ready to maintain for the remainder of the year, and the key to our team of the week. Through nine games he is averaging 30.2 points, 1.7 threes, 7.8 rebounds, 2.2 blocks, and strong 82.6% in FT.
On the other side, Jimmy Butler is a great buy low candidate, as his owners are probably impatient right now. Butler said he’s focusing on winning, not his own statistics, and Thibodeau said the scoring will come as he gets more comfortable with the team. Other players on the buy low side are Kyle Lowry, Eric Bledsoe, Paul Millsap and Gorgui Dieng.
And now the highlights from Week 3 in the RCLs:Please, blog, may I have some more?
