First Look: Sunday, March 1
Well, happy March. The last real month of the season, and things are tight in both conferences. It’s the best month to be a basketball fan for sure. One big note from Saturday: Luol Deng fractured his right tibia and could be done for the year. Ouchie.
Saturday’s best: Gotta be a continual favorite here, Dwyane Wade. He almost had a triple-double, and single-handedly willed the Heat into a come-from-behind victory against the Knicks. He finished with 46 points, 10 assists, 8 rebounds, 4 steals, 3 blocks, and was perfect from the line. Wow.
Saturday’s worst: Not really any bad lines Saturday, so we’re gonna put teams with a lead Saturday on blast. Three games were decided by comeback victories, leaving the Knicks, 76ers, and Rockets with bad losses. This isn’t the time of year to be choking away leads.
Keep an eye on: Thabo Sefolosha. He’s starting in Oklahoma City and had a season high 15 points and 11 rebounds. He’s going to continue playing big minutes and is likely available in your leagues.
What to watch Sunday: On national TV, two has-beens battle league leaders, as Detroit plays Boston and Phoenix hosts the Lakers. San Antonio and Portland should also be a fun one.
