Merry Christmas Grinders!! Some say that the NBA season ‘starts today’ as the entire worlds eye will be on today’s NBA basketball games which start at noon. Personally I have a 100k tournament I’m in – plus a bunch of small ones. Here’s to good cheer and some cash after tonight’s games are over.
G – Beno Udrih vs Oklahoma City
Looks like Raymond Felton is out for today’s game, that basically leave Udrih to be the PG tonight. There are rumors that Carmelo (black hole) Anthony might not play either (I bet he does) … but that would open up even more shots.
G – Jeremy Lin at San Antonio
What usually happens on Christmas? Stars come out & play. Lin is not a huge star, but is coming back from injury and the Rockets need him to play big. James Harden is a game time decision (he’ll probably play) – but I expect Lin to do well with the bright lights on. There’s also Aaron Brooks, but I don’t like him if Harden plays.
G – Kirk Hinrich at Brooklyn
Is coming back from injury today – so this is a very risky play. If you don’t feel like starting Kirk, D.J. Augustin has been filling in – and possibly could still start today even with Kirk back. This is a risky play either way – but there’s only a few games today so I have to take some shots.
G – Jodie Meeks vs Miami
No Kobe, but Jordan Farmer is back (which kind of ices Xavier Henry) but Meeks has been getting solid minuets & the coach seems to like him as he provides scoring.
G/F – Iman Shumpert vs Oklahoma City
This is not the worst play, except me might have to guard KD some of the game. If Carmelo Anthony is out – I think Shumpert or J.R. Smith would make quality plays.
F – Mirza Teletovic vs Chicago
This is what you come here for – sleepers barely anyone has even heard of unless you root for the Nets. Okay, so you might want to double-check if he’s starting again, but this guy has been given an opportunity now that Brook Lopez is done for the year – and he’s one of the cheapest players I found on almost any daily site.
