NBA Preview: Los Angeles Clippers vs. Denver Nuggets

Despite injury issues, the Los Angeles Clippers are unstoppable right now, having won 11 straight — their longest winning streak in over two years.

Given that roll — and the less-than inspiring play by the likely lottery-bound Denver Nuggets — it’s somewhat surprising that the Clips aren’t favoured by more than 4.5 points Monday night in Denver. (For more information, you can check out some of the great NBA lines at Sportbet.com.)

One of the biggest reasons LA is kicking ass lately is power forward Blake Griffin, an honourable mention as the 2013 RotoRob Fantasy Basketball Comeback Player of the Year. On Sunday — which also happened to be his 25th birthday — he just missed a triple double (21 points, 11 boards and eight assists with one block).

The fact that Griffin is really maturing as a player is one of the keys to the Clippers’ run. To watch him distributing the basketball as he did Sunday (see video below) speaks volumes about his growth.

Griffin has been able to log more PT this season, and while his shooting has slipped slightly once again and he’s never developed into a shot blocker, he is enjoying his finest season offensively. More than anything, it’s his consistency — 26 straight games of at least 20 points — that has really stuck out.

It’s been a lost season for the Nuggets, but they had actually managed to string back-to-back wins together before losing by five in Atlanta on Saturday. Kenneth Faried continued his recent offensive surge with 25 points, giving him a three-game average of 25 points. Right now, this dude can’t miss. Over his last six games, he’s canned 59-of-88 (67 per cent) from the field. Lights out, baby!

Hey, if nothing else, this game pits two super scorching power forwards up against each other.

As alluded to above, the Clippers are dealing with some injury woes right now. In the backcourt alone, Jamal Crawford (calf) has been out for the last four games; hot waiver wire choice Darren Collison (stomach virus) missed Sunday’s game; and J.J. Redick (back) hasn’t played in six weeks and could be shut down for the rest of the season.

What would really help Denver make a game of it is if Ty Lawson would snap his recent skid. He’s been in a funk for about a week, but it really came to a head Saturday when he went 0-for-12 from the field en route to a season-low two points in 38 minutes. Lawson has still been dishing the dimes (11 Saturday, and 32 total over the last three games), but his shooting touch has gotten progressively worse over the past few games (2-for-19 in the last two combined… yuck!).

Now it’s your turn. Let us know in the comments below what you think will happen in this game.

The Wire Troll: Darren Collison Sparking the Clippers

March 15, 2014 | by Bob Raymond | Comments (0)
Okay, Fantasy hoopsters, we’ve come to that all important part of the season when, for those of you in ESPN leagues and likely others, the playoffs are upon us. Now is the time to pay close attention to every injury (minor or major) and also be sure to follow NBA happenings on a daily/nightly basis. Also, it’s a good idea to prepare a list of free agent players that can be inserted should you want to take advantage of the extra man games afforded during a playoff matchup (typically two weeks in length). Here are some recommendations for those of you in deeper leagues.

The Wire Troll: Marcus Thornton Supplying Buckets in Brooklyn

March 8, 2014 | by Bob Raymond | Comments (0)
In need of a true scorer off the bench, the Nets have seen Thornton record games of 25 and 20 points, respectively over the past week. He is very adept at shooting the three-ball and going to the foul line with success. If your Fantasy team needs offensive firepower for the stretch drive, don’t hesitate to add Thornton.

The Wire Troll: Kent Bazemore Making an Impression

March 1, 2014 | by Bob Raymond | Comments Comments Off
Now is your last chance to potentially buy low on Suns guard Eric Bledsoe. The talented combo guard, who suffered a knee injury several weeks ago, is close to returning to the lineup and could be back early next week. If your league’s trade deadline hasn’t passed or you’re in a super shallow league in which Bledsoe might still be available via the waiver wire (97.5 per cent owned in ESPN leagues), don’t hesitate to take action!

In this edition of The Wire Troll we take a different approach and review the Fantasy impact of the NBA’s trade deadline on Thursday. We didn’t see any of the blockbuster trades that had been rumoured, but several players do have new teams as we enter the home stretch of the regular season. Let’s examine the Fantasy impact of the consummated trades as Fantasy owners look to new dynamics to exploit.
