This week, the Miami Heat has been building up big leads. And they also have given them up as well. Playing from ahead has been an ongoing lesson for the team, which was the case against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday. After trailing by as many as 27 in the second half, the Cavaliers crept back into the game and cut the Heat’s lead to 10 midway into the fourth quarter. Ultimately, the Heat left Cleveland with a 108-97 victory to improve their record to 8-3 for the season.
The Eastern Conference bottom-dweller Washington Wizards attempted to end the Celtics early season win streak on a cold November night. However, the Celtics outshot the Wizards winning 140-133 in TD Garden. This was the first game since 1992 that the Celtics as a franchise had scored 140 points.
We got a solid seven-game slate for tonight. The best matchup is the Houston Rockets against the Los Angeles Clippers. Paul George is also scheduled to come back and the Clippers will be at full strength. Below are my top value players for this slate.
Before I get to my NBA DFS picks for tonight, I would like to thank The Scorecrow for giving me a place to bring you my thoughts. This is the first article I am writing for the site and I could not be more excited to be part of the DFS family here. Just like some of you, I work a full-time job. Playing and researching daily fantasy sports gets my mind off the work grind. It’s also five degrees outside as I write this so there’s that too. It’s cold up here in the Northwoods and my goal is to bring us some fire for this NBA DFS slate. Let’s light this baby up.
The last edition of the Rookie Report feels ages ago. The regular season had not started yet, and everyone had a pretty good idea as to which rookie would be crowned 2019-20 NBA Rookie of the Year – Zion Williamson.
Well, things change, and quickly. Williamson is set to miss, give-or-take, the first 20 games of the New Orleans Pelicans’ schedule. Zion’s injury has cleared the way for many other hopefuls to be named the best rookie from the 2019 rookie class.
