Farid’s Fantastic Predictions
I like the Rockets over the Celtics today with McGrady going for 24/8/6. I also like the Lakers over the Mavs with Kobe (38/9/3) dominating Dirk (19/11/5) in his own building. Let’s see how I do. But anyway, on to the pickups of the night:
KYLE KORVER (Uta, SF)
Coach Sloan has been talking about integrating Korver as more of an option within the Jazz option and that’s exactly what has occurred. Korver put a ridiculous line of 17 pts [6-7 FG, 1-1 3PT, 4-4 FT], 4 reb, 4 asst, 2 stl in only 21 minutes of play last night. Although I’d like him to get more minutes, I still think he’s a viable option for a fantasy manager looking for points, threes and above average percentages.
Second Best: SAM CASSELL (Bos, PG)
I bet you didn’t think you’d hear Alien’s name come up this early in his tenure with the Celtics, but with Allen banged up and the Celtics looking for veteran leadership, Cassell has fit right in with Boston the last couple of games. Last night against the Spurs he went for 17 points and 5 rebounds on 7-13 shooting from the field. If I was a betting man (ok, I actually am), I’d put money on Cassell finishing off the season with decent fantasy numbers.
