Weekend Wonder: Kevin Garnett looked young again this past weekend, averaging 16.5 points, 15.5 rebounds, 5 assists, 1.5 steals, 1 block and 0.5 turnovers in two games this past weekend. He also shot 63 percent from the field and 90 percent from the free-throw line. KG is thriving so far this season, though he’ll be a sell-high candidate soon enough.

Lines for Discussion:
Manu Ginobili (12/3): 1-10 FG (10%), 13-13 FT (100%), 1 three, 16 Pts, 1 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 2 TO

Carlos Boozer (12/4): 9-15 FG (60%), 7-10 FT (70%), 25 Pts, 9 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 2 TO (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Paul Millsap finished with 19 points, 13 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, 2 blocks and 1 turnover against the Suns. He shot 69 percent (9-13) from the field and 33 percent (1-3) from the line. It’s early in the season, but these types of lines will be commonplace for Millsap this season.

Lines for Discussion:
Dwight Howard: 7-9 FG (78%), 9-19 FT (47%), 23 Pts, 10 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 3 Blk, 3 TO

Vince Carter: 8-12 FG (67%), 0-1 FT (0%), 2 threes, 18 Pts, 5 Reb, 2 Ast (continue reading…)

Round seven and still going strong.

It’s been a fun ride so far and this middle part of the draft is where it gets really exhilarating. The pressure of conforming to general opinion from the earlier rounds is gone, but the pickings aren’t yet slim enough that you can let up a bit like you may be able to do in the latter rounds. This is where you start seeing and doing things you might not have expected heading into the draft, and where big-time steals are made.

If you need to catch up, here are round oneround tworound threeround four, round five and the aforementioned round six.

I could call this round the “Dirty Dozen,” since there are so many dudes being taken here that might cause you to groan in boredom and agony. But there are some exciting picks, too. Read on and hold onto your butts — this might be a rocky one: (continue reading…)
