The Day Before Tomorrow: Fantasy NBA News and Notes for April 26
April 26, 2012 | Scott
Welcome to the last Day Before Tomorrow of the season. It has been a great ride for me and I hope it was for you also. I will try to work on some playoff series previews for those of you who are playing during the playoffs and we should have a season-end recap coming soon also. Don’t forget the Fantasy Feud Freeroll for the big slate tonight that is listed below. I am just going to list some guys that had good games yesterday and ones that should do the same today. Good luck if you are playing tonight.
-Patty Mills got the start for the Spurs last night as the Spurs rest Tony Parker, Gary Neal, Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan all for the last two games of the season. Mills struggled in the first half, but got hot in the second in his extended run, scoring 27 points with 5 assists and a steal. He should get about the same 35 minutes he got last night again for the Spurs tonight.
-Tiago Splitter is another Spur who had a great game. I expect the Spurs to rest DeJaun Blair a little more and give Splitter more than 20 minutes tonight. In his 20 minutes last night, Splitter posted 26 points and 5 rebounds. Look for more of the same, but likely more rebounds tonight out of Splitter.
-Jodie Meeks and Evan Turner took over for the Sixers last night and both should do the same tonight with most of the same guys sitting and playing. Turner showed off his very roto friendly game once again with Igudola out of the lineup and that appears to be the key for him to be productive. It also led to more shots for Jodie Meeks, who we all know can knock them down. These are two guys you want in your lineup tonight.
-Tobias Harris got a start for the banged up and eliminated Bucks last night. He made some starts earlier this season and flashed some promise, but last night was easily his best game. He played 36 minutes, finishing with 15 points, 13 rebounds and a block. He has excellent size for a wing and solid athletic ability. He should get a chance to show it off again tonight.
