I’ve said it before, almost a month ago to the day, that the Warriors cheat their asses off. Last night against the Cavaliers, it was validated again on a national stage. The Warriors won last night against the Cavaliers in convincing fashion, 132-98. But it was how they cheated with the help of NBA referees that really got my attention.
Curry flops on barely being touched by Timofey Mozgov and the foul gets called. Yet, Curry shoves Kyrie Irving out of the way and the refs look the other way. Bullshit, if you ask me.
The worst part about this…the Warriors Vine account is boasting about their cheating by posting this video. Talk about rubbing it in everyone’s face.
Here’s another cheating ass video from the Warriors Vine account. Draymond Green gets an “And-1” on another phantom foul call on the Cavs, this time on Richard Jefferson.
Notice anything else?? After taking a closer look, the Warriors do everything they can to take out Iman Shumpert’s knee. Matthew Dellavadova got voted the Dirtiest Player in the League, but it looks like Steph Curry and Draymond Green are trying to give him a run for his money. DISGUSTING.
Also, the banner picture at the top with Draymond giving high-fives to Curry and Klay Thompson (no relation I don’t think) is not what it seems. They aren’t celebrating a win but another cheating move that went unnoticed.
Tuesday Slate for January 19th, 2016
Milwaukee @ Miami—7:30pm EST/4:30pm PST (MIA -5.5; O/U 192.5)
Minnesota @ New Orleans—8pm EST/5pm PST (NO -5.0; O/U 203.5)
Oklahoma City @ Denver—9pm EST/6pm PST (OKC -8.5; O/U 212.0)
Indiana @ Phoenix—9pm EST/6pm PST (IND -7.0; O/U 208.5)
Prices are courtesy of DraftKings.
Point Guard (High Value): Ricky Rubio, Minnesota Timberwolves ($6,900)!
Rubio has been playing somewhat inconsistent lately. However, he was going to get back on track in his last game against the Suns and was well on his way until the Timberwolves started blowing them out causing the Timberwolves to rest Rubio. Rubio is walking into a great matchup tonight as the Pelicans may be playing without Tyreke Evans and they are coming off a hard-fought loss to the Grizzlies yesterday.
Bargain(s): Emmanuel Mudiay, Denver Nuggets ($5,400), Norris Cole, New Orleans Pelicans, ($3,800)
Shooting Guard (High Value): Dwayne Wade, Miami Heat ($6,500)
Wade is getting old. That’s life. He didn’t play last Friday against the Nuggets due to injuries to both shoulders but toughed it out and played against the Thunder the next day scoring 22 points and 28 fantasy points overall. He’s got the Bucks tonight and he’s had two days rest. I expect a nice night out Wade especially if Goran Dragic is out (which he’s supposed to be with a calf-strain).
Bargain(s): Tyler Johnson, Miami Heat ($5,100); Devin Booker, Phoenix Suns ($4,800)
Small Forward (High Value): Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks ($7,000)
Durant is the logical pick tonight but I’m fading him to the blowout risk of that game in Denver. Instead, I’m going with Giannis who has put up at least 38 fantasy points in his last 4 games which include two 50+ fantasy point outings in that stretch. He’ll be going up against Luol Deng in which is Giannis’ length should give him a lot of issues. I expect Giannis to continue putting up big numbers tonight.
Bargain(s): CJ Miles, Indiana Pacers ($5,200); Luol Deng, Miami Heat ($4,500)
Power Forward (High Value): Anthony Davis, New Orleans Pelicans ($10,000)
It pains me to write this but Anthony Davis aka “I let minor injuries put me out of games,” is the best player at the PF position on the board tonight. He’s got a great matchup tonight against the Minnesota who are middleo f the pack on DK at defending the PF position. If Tyreke is out, this is an even better play due to all of the offense running through Davis.
Bargain(s): Jabari Parker, Milwaukee Bucks ($5,000); Markieff Morris, Phoenix Suns ($4,800)
Center (High Value): Hassan Whiteside, Miami Heat ($7,500)
Whiteside is only one game removed from dropping a triple-double and still is coming off a solid fantasy game against the Thunder with a 37.75 fantasy point outing. He’s got a solid matchup tonight in the Greg Monroe and the Bucks who rank 14th against Centers on DK, and provided Whiteside can stay out of foul trouble, 30+ minutes of action should spell excellent fantasy value for Whiteside tonight.
Bargain(s): Nikola Jokic, Denver Nuggets ($4,800); Tyson Chandler, Phoenix Suns ($4,200)
Get well soon!
