6 turnovers?! Giant stiff. Joker’s dominance is getting laughable, and he’s the current no. 1 overall player in Yahoo! What plaudits can I add? Well, he put the fear of god into Jae Crowder in a game earlier this season, and Crowder’s one of the scariest dudes in the league. You’ll see why I loved that particular moment in, uhh, a moment. Jamal Murray put up 26/6/5 with a strong night that included a step-back, buzzer-beating 3-ball to force OT, but it’s tough to win top spots when Joker is your co-pilot.Please, blog, may I have some more?
On this exciting edition of Friday Night Lights in the NBA, there were two kinds of games that you could have watched with no real in between.
The first kind was the nail biter games that came down to the final possession. Games like Indiana vs. Orlando or Denver vs. Phoenix where each team’s superstar talent had to step up in the closing seconds of the ball game to help steal their victory. These are the games where each team can taste the victory, yet only one team is able to truly capitalize and come out the winner. The Detroit Pistons may have felt the brute of this kind of game as they fell just short of the win due to Jerami Grant being just a hair too late on getting his shot off in the closing seconds the Rockets.
On the other side were the blowouts or the “humble games.” These were the games like the Cleveland Cavaliers defeating the Brooklyn Nets for the second time this week and the Boston Celtics losing to the Philadelphia 76ers despite getting 42 points from Jaylen Brown. These are the kinds of games that can tell you a lot about a team’s weakness and force them to look in the mirror after simply being outmatched.
In a week filled with buzzer beaters and overtime victories, the Friday Night games did not disappoint as they continued the trend we saw throughout the week of high-level matchups, surprise performances, late game heroics and exciting finishes. Here are my Primetime Players from Friday Night’s matchups!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Kyrie Irving: Made his dramatic, drama-filled return. Tried to knock out Sexton at the end of the 4th period. Got up for some putbacks in extra periods. Can he accept his role as the 3rd most effective scorer in a BKN jersey?Please, blog, may I have some more?
“Living off borrowed time the clock tick faster
That’d be the hour they knock the slick blaster”.
Razz Nation, we are in the place to be for another look into a possible high end stud that can certainly be had at a reduced price today based on his performance thus far into the season.
This cat was near the top of many draft boards throughout the fantasy landscape, as there was high expectations for this dynamic scorer who many GM’s hoped would be a pillar of their backcourt.
It’s been a wild ride so far for his owners, who are certainly losing faith by this point and if you have a top 50 guy at your disposal, you should entertain the idea of lobbing him out there to a frustrated GM.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Happy belated MLK day, all.
Andrew Wiggins – Wiggins has been quietly ramping up into midseason form, contributing to this depleted Warriors squad on both ends.
Cole Anthony – The shooting percentages were foul, despite Anthony not getting to the line once. See what I did there?
We’re still pretty early on in the season, but it’s always a good time for some hot takes. What follows will be the totally legitimately definitive ranking of each NBA team when it comes to their fantasy production.
I took the top 100 players in total value and by per-game value, figured out how many were on each team, and ranked them. Very scientific stuff, I know. But no worries, there is a point. We’ll discuss what that means for each team, and for fantasy owners that may have the players mentioned, or have their eye on a player mentioned.
If a team has fantasy gold, does that mean they have great pace? Is it because they have a great record? Without further ado, here are your answers.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Here we go.
Here we go.
Here we go, here we go, here we here we here we go.
Shout to the legendary RUN-DMC who time after time remained consistent and gave you that boom-bap mixed with sampled guitar riffs, leather jackets, Kangol hats and those three-stripe sneakers sans laces.
The point is, you knew exactly what to expect when they were on the mic unlike the players that show up in this column week after week following underwhelming performances on the hardcourt.
If you’re interested in a big man who cranked out a top 20 performance last season and can possibly be had at a discount let’s pull back the curtain for the reveal.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Everyone’s favorite Ball brother narrowly missed consecutive triple-doubles. The defensive stats are there, too. Now if the shooting percentages could come up a tick, LaMelo would be an early-round asset. Who would’ve thought?Please, blog, may I have some more?
Should I just call it the ‘Rona Roundup? Sheesh. Like half of my fantasy rosters and half of my beloved Celtics can’t hoop at present because of this scourge. My ability to marginally function during all this madness right now largely depends on access to NBA hoops and steak. You mess with that? I get cranky and mouthy. Even though some players are ineligible right now who would otherwise be available in normal times, I’m focusing on the positive: Most players are active.
And I can say negatives things about them to soothe myself.
So you know what? I’mma try something new this week with my round-up: Two players from each team, one of whom did the Best Work, and one who is the Biggest Jerk and probably killed your fantasy team (as long as they played).Please, blog, may I have some more?
Friday Night Lights are known to bring the best out of athletes. Big-time performances, breakout players, and competitive scores are all things that make Friday Night games the best. On a Friday full of high scoring finishes, franchise record-breaking feats, and careers highs, these games may have given us some of the best performances of the season far. From the Battle of the Ball Brothers to the offensive clinic put on by Bradley Beal and Caris LeVert in losing efforts, the individual performances highlighted some potential All-Star worthy players we all need to keep tabs on. The Utah Jazz and Toronto Raptors also SHOT THE LIGHTS OUT in big-time wins where they shot historically well from three. On a night full of great moments, it is hard to sum it all up in one place and really put it into perspective…Oh that is right, I did all that and more for you down below as we look at the NBA’s Friday Night Top Performers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
