NBA DFS Dec. 21, 2018– Players To Own And Avoid

Who To Own LeBron James, PF, Los Angeles Lakers If you have one big-time player to own on Friday, my money is on LeBron James. The Lakers are losers of three straight and it will be their first time back at home after a four-game road trip so James will be looking to put on a show. He is averaging 26 points, nine rebounds, 7.6 assists, a steal, and 2.2 3PM over the last five games. Scary thing is, we know he's capable of doing more. Marcus Smart, SG, Boston Celtics Smart has been a fantasy Read More

Players To Own And Avoid On NBA DFS Sunday– Dec. 2, 2018

Players To Own: Anthony Davis, C, New Orleans Pelicans AD is in the conversation as the best fantasy player right now averaging 32 points, 13.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.7 steals, and 3 blocks over the past three games.  This affair with Charlotte has all the makings of a fantasy-friendly matchup and Davis will surely be in the forefront of this one.

Players To Own And Avoid On NBA DFS– Nov. 21, 2018

Players To Own LeBron James, PF, Los Angeles Lakers LBJ always shows up on big games and I'd count this one as such because it will be the first time he'll return to Cleveland wearing a Lakers uniform. His return to Miami saw him produce a season-high 51 and while I don't expect that scoring output this time around, I also don't think he'll be a disappointment in his return home. Marc Gasol, C, Memphis Grizzlies Gasol has begun to hit his groove the last two games, producing 21.5 points, Read More

5 NBA Fun Facts For The Day

3 Things Cavs Need To Do To Win Game 3

1.) Play With Fire And Desperation The NBA Finals is more than just X's and O's. After all, Cleveland and Golden State have faced each other for the fourth consecutive time in the Finals already. What was lacking in the Cavs so far this series is the aggressive play that almost had them steal Game 1. Tristan Thompson making his presence felt, Larry Nance, Jr. having a hand on passing lanes, etc.  (Nance had three deflections, four loose balls recovered, four contested shots and seven box Read More

5 Unbelievable Numbers/Facts In Game 1 Of The NBA Finals

1. KD (and Draymond) couldn't guard LeBron. Basically, nobody could touch LeBron in Game 1 as he went off for a playoff career-high 51 points. But KD, Bron's primary defender, allowed him to score 30 points on 10-for-15 shooting. To be fair to KD, Draymond Green didn't do a better job, either. Green was LeBron's primary defender in eight possessions, and James scored eight points on 4-for-6 shooting. Apparently, the Dubs need Iggy real quick or LeBron will probably average 45 in this series. 2. Read More
