Last time I was able to publish my picks was for Jan. 17 with mixed results (mostly great).
Ja Morant and DeMar Derozan were really superb statistically with the latter racking up 25-9-9 plus two steals. Morant held his own in the win, finishing with 16 points, five rebounds, eight assists, three steals, and a block.
If you have gone for Jaren Jackson, Jr., this where the mixed results thing starts. While Kevin Huerter (18 points, two rebounds, an assists, a steal, and two blocks) and Al Horford Read More
I know there were only 13 games played out of a gazillion more to come but for a stathead like me, I couldn't help but feel giddy. After all, it's about time to overreact.
Here are 5 of the weirdest and most amazing stat lines to start the season:
1. Mike Conley's Horrible Jazz Debut
The Jazz got the win alright, but no thanks to Mike Conley and his pathetic shooting performance.

Nikola Jokic and the Best Value Picks for NBA DFS Monday-- Mar. 4, 2019
Nikola Jokic, C, Denver Nuggets

1. Khris Middleton, SG, Milwaukee Bucks ($8,600)
K-Mid picked up the slack in the absence of Giannis Antetokounmpo versus Philly, posting a huge triple-double with 23 points, 14 rebounds, and 10 assists. The Greek Freak will be out once again Monday so even though FanDuel increased Middleton's salary by a whopping 1,200 bucks since his last outing, you'd definitely want him on your DFS lineup against the Suns.
2. Eric Bledsoe, PG, Milwaukee Bucks ($8,300)
You can argue that Bled is a little Read More
