Quote of the day
"I can understand people thinking, `Why?' But don't get caught up in the free throws. Think about when we didn't foul him. It was dunks, hooks, at the rim. He's a great player. And he's a bad free throw shooter." -- Warriors coach Mark Jackson, after sending Dwight Howard to the line 39 times. Howard made only 21, but Orlando still won by 8.
Mark Jackson opted for the “Hack-a-Howard” defense, and Dwight Howard responded with a Superman stat line: 45 pts, 23 rebounds, 4 steals, 2 blocks, and 18 missed free throws. If you have Howard in a roto format, you know going in that FT% is going to be his kryptonite, and you hope the other stats compensate. Last night, I’d say they did.
Remember that the FanDuel Freeroll is tonight. See yesterday’s blurb for details and links.
Aside from the Freeroll, there’s plenty to get prepared for this weekend. Four NFL playoff games (don’t forget your Football Pickoff picks), and 11 NBA games on each of Friday and Saturday nights. Plenty of college hoops action as well. Hunker down in your favorite viewing chair, and enjoy the weekend.
