5 Interesting Numbers In The Celtics-Cavs ECF Game 5

1. Jayson Tatum! Tatum becomes the first rookie since Jack Sikma (in 1978) to score 300+ points in a postseason. He now has nine 20+ point games in the playoffs, trailing only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on the all-time rookie list. The crazy thing is if the Celtics go on to the NBA Finals, he will likely be the runaway leader in that category even before that series ends. If this kid ain't the real deal, I don't know who is! 2. More Celtics... The Boston Celtics is the first team with 10 consecutive Read More

Start Em, Sit Em – NBA DFS Dec 22, 2017

Start ‘Em: Anthony Davis, PF, NO ($11,300) The Brow has been money lately, scoring 50 FP or more in each of his last three games. When you average 48.0 FPPG, it’s hard to beat your average in three straight games, but Davis dropped 37 points, 9 rebounds an assist and a steal on Tuesday against Washington. The game before that he had 5 blocks. He’s only the 5th most expensive player tonight, and always has a legit shot be the top fantasy scorer. Lonzo Ball PG, LAL ($7,400) I still think Read More

2018 All-Star Team Projections

NBA All-Star Voting 2018 presented by Verizon will tip off with an early voting period exclusively on the NBA App and NBA.com beginning Thursday, Dec. 21 at 1 p.m. ET. In honor of the impending vote, lets take a look at who should make it this year. Keep in mind that this year, there will be no East V West, it has moved to a draft format. It’s clear that the All-Star game is dying since none of the players care, so the draft will at least add some life into it. Useless or not, I’ve always liked Read More

NBA MVP Power Rankings – Dec. 14, 2017

1A) James Harden, PG, HOU (31.6 ppg) The third overall pick in the 2009 draft continues to impress as his team maintains a one game lead over the Warriors for the #1 seed in the West. He’s one of the most gifted scorers in recent memory, and is a good bet to average over 30 ppg for the season, something only KD and Steph Curry have done in the past 8 years. This year, his stellar play is actually turning into more wins and the Rockets look like a legit threat to the Warriors. Rumors have been Read More

5 Awesome NBA Stats Of The Day– Dec. 10, 2017

5 Players You Need in Your DraftKings Lineup

Tonight is a Ten game schedule. The more choices, the more doubt creeps in with your pick. Here are 5 picks to help get your lineup jumpstarted. PG Jamal Murray, $5,100 Nice value pick here. Jamal Murray scored a season high 31 points the last time they played the Pelicans. Not a whole lot of defense is going to be played in this game, the Nuggets won 146-114 last game, I don't think both teams will tighten up on Defense over night. SG. Dwyane Wade, $5,800 I am using the PG slot Read More
