It was a nice 11-game Sunday and as a basketball fan, that's all you can ask for.
I did offer my thoughts on the early schedule, and I was pretty much on point except with Kawhi Leonard. Leonard had 27 points but only two rebounds and an assist. That's not going to cut it if he is your number one guy. If you had Jrue Holiday, then that's the game-changer as he finished with 37-9-8 plus a steal and a block.

I got back on track on Feb. 3 with really solid picks from top to bottom.
I suggested Deandre Ayton or Nikola Vucevic and while both came through, Ayton basically feasted in the paint with 25-17-5 with two blocks.

Considering the Detroit game was over in the third quarter, DiVincenzo's line of six points, seven rebounds, two assists, and two steals isn't that bad. Donte saw his minutes and role increase with Khris Middleton out. And even if Middleton returns at some point, he is still probably keep his starting spot since he has outplayed Wesley Matthews by a wide margin.
2.) Malcolm Brogdon, Read More
