Quote of the day
"I'm not going to lie to you. In this one, I was aware, because when you look straight ahead, I kept looking up and trying to get the score. I knew if I had the time, eventually, I was going to get it." -- Minnesota forward Kevin Love, after setting the franchise record for consecutive double-doubles (38)
Achieving the Twolves franchise record for double-doubles might seem like a modest accomplishment until you remember that Kevin Garnett played there for twelve years, including nine seasons when he averaged better than 20/10. Then again, Garnett never averaged more than 15 rebounds per game. This season, Love is averaging 21.4/15.6.
Chalk up another monster game from LeBron, with 41 points, 13 rebounds, 8 assists, and 3 steals. Over the last month, and also over the entire season, heís got the top fantasy point average by a non-negligible margin. Oddly enough, he ranks only #3 in the ESPN player rater, which is based on 8-category averages using roto scoring. Durant ranks on top there, followed by Chris Paul. Durant gets the nod based primarily on his FT percentage, while Paulís dominance is in steals.
Get your GuruGolf foursomes set for the ATT Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, which tees off at 11am ET tomorrow, frost permitting. Since the overnight lows are forecast to be in the mid-40s, this one looks like it will tee off on schedule.
