Quote of the day
"From our perspective, we see ourselves more in the driver's seat than them." -- Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum, after losing game 5, but still needing only one more win with the series heading back to Philadephia
Tonight marks the end of the NBA preseason. After this, we’ll get no more statistical clues about potential roles or production. We’ll also get fewer “false positives”, when bench players lose playing time upon their inevitable return to the bench.
False positives or not, it’s interesting to see which players have been doing the best in preseason. Using the RotoHog SalCap formula (which is the same as the old TSN point formula), the leader is Blake Griffin, making up for lost time by averaging 40.6 RHP/game – although he’s missed his last two games with a sprained ankle. It looks like he has the skills, but does he have the durability? Or will he become Oden2?
