NBA Playoffs Stats Of The Day– April 26, 2017

It's Russell Westbrook's last game for the 2016-17 season so this will be a tribute of some sorts to the future MVP. NBA Playoffs Stats Of The Day-- April 26, 2017 1. That's why you don't take Beastbrook out of the game... Russell Westbrook was off the floor for 6 minutes in Game 5. In those 6 minutes, the Rockets outscored the Thunder 27-9. pic.twitter.com/AicL24JgEd — ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) April 26, 2017 2. ... although he had his share of struggles in Game 4.

NBA Playoffs 2017 Round 1 Predictions

The NBA playoffs are here so it's time to sound like an idiot again and predict the winners of the first round. You know what they have said about this year's playoffs-- that it's only going to be a collision course between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors. While that conclusion makes sense, we cannot be absolutely sure because anything can happen-- whether it's injuries (hope not) or just simply one team outplaying either one of the favorites. So before we get carried away Read More

NBA Fantasy Basketball Forecaster: Nov. 21-27

There are 20 NBA teams that will play four games through Nov. 21-27 but schedules are not created equal. Here are players to target for the upcoming week of fantasy basketball: NBA Fantasy Basketball Forecaster: Nov. 21-27 Indiana Pacers, 4 games Player to watch: Jeff Teague, PG Teague's transition from Atlanta to his hometown Indiana has been up and down since Paul George went down with an ankle injury the past two games, the 2015 All-Star was brilliant. He is averaging 25.5 points, eight Read More

2016 NBA Fantasy Basketball Team Outlook: Houston Rockets

The Houston Rockets roster may not be that much better without Dwight Howard but with the hiring of Mike D'Antoni, they are going to have a lot of fantasy appeal. That as much is true. MDA's system has brought so much fantasy value to teams like the Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks, and the Los Angeles Lakers. Good players like Shawn Marion and Boris Diaw were made fantasy superstars and mediocre ones like Earl Clark and Jeremy Lin were made relevant. Again, they may not be better than they were last Read More

December 25, 2015– NBA Crazy/Interesting Stats Of The Day

Some ridiculous stats of the day for you to delve in... 1. The San Antonio Spurs lost tonight to the Houston Rockets and a 40.9% clip from the floor did not help, but few have been better historically than this bunch. Through the first 30 games of the season, the Spurs is second all-time in points differential.

NBA Conference Finals Preview And Complete Predictions

One thing is for sure: the Larry O'Brien trophy will change hands soon and I couldn't be any happier. After a riotous 82-game regular season, excitingly boring set of first round series and nail-biting finishes galore in the conference semifinals, we are down to four teams. Golden State's Steph Curry and Houston Rockets' James Harden looks to add to the league's more anticipated one-on-one matchups in recent memory while the team-oriented Atlanta Hawks will try to solve the supposed one-man band Read More

The Importance of Team Pace in Fantasy Basketball

I don't hate advanced stats as much as Charles Barkley, nor am I making it my mistress like Daryl Morey. I like to think that I'm a reasonable guy-- a balanced one if you will-- but if you dig fantasy basketball, you have to be more Morey than Barkley. If you think like Sir Chuck in fantasy, you might as well draft up until the third round and leave. On the other hand, if you're Morey, you find specialized value up until the last pick, which can potentially help you out in the long run. As Read More

5 Bold Predictions For The Second Half of NBA 2014-15 Season

The first half of the season has gone and we have enough sample size to pretty much know what to expect as the NBA season goes on. However, conventional wisdom messes up sometimes and to be honest, it's more fun that way. You ready? Here are our five predictions for the second half of NBA 2014-15 season: 1. OKC Thunder Won't Make The Playoffs If the best player on your team spends more time wearing dry-cleaned suits than warmups and jerseys, you know you're in trouble. In an ultra-competitive Read More

What the Corey Brewer trade meant for fantasy owners

As busy as teams are right now, I would've mistaken everything as a February trade deadline rush. Clearly, all the General Managers pulled the trigger for one reason and one reason only: for the improvement of the team. For fantasy owners, we couldn't care less. (Actually, we do, but not to the fullest sense.) All we wanted is see what these transactions do or will do to our teams and then act like a smart GM will do. The trade that went through Friday was minor compared to the one that swung Read More

NBA Fantasy Forethought Week 7 (December 8-14)

So far this season, I think we have already segregated the weeds from the wheat, the men from the boys, if you will. Out West, two teams have exactly done that-- not only in the standings-- but their style of play as well: the Houston Rockets and the Golden State Warriors. After losing key pieces in the offseason through trades (Jeremy Lin to LAL) and free agency (Chandler Parsons to Dallas), nobody gave Houston much of a chance in a stacked conference. As it turns out, the Rockets are winning Read More
