ANALYSIS

The tug-of-war between Team Hughes and the Derrick Rosie O’Donnells continued apace on Wednesday night.

My D-RODs extended their lead in rebounds and pulled even in assists, thanks to a combined 19 helpers between Goran Dragic and Jameer Nelson. But poor shooting nights from everyone, save for Serge Ibaka, cost my squad dearly in points and field goal percentage.

So, too, did a big game from Isaiah Thomas, who scored 23 points and converted 15-of-16 free throw attempts in support of Team Hughes.

As a result, Grant Hughes and I are one again deadlocked at 4-4, with only two games on tap for Thursday during which either of our teams might create some semblance of separation…

ANALYSIS

At the moment, my D-RODs have the simple math in their favor, 3-1. Better yet, two of those three (Paul Pierce and Joakim Noah) have been core contributors all season, and could go a long way toward turning the tables more firmly in my favor tonight.

Grant, though, could very easily mitigate my numbers advantage were he to log into his account between now and the end of the evening. He’s got Jordan Crawford and Marreese Speights languishing on his bench, and though those two can’t be counted on to produce much, they surely help Team Hughes offset whatever deficits they’d otherwise encounter.

But hey, I’ve already done my part to alert Grant to the very existence of his fantasy squad. Now it’s on him to tend his own garden while I half-heartedly hoe my own.
