ANALYSIS

If I lose to Grant Hughes this week, I’ll have only myself to blame. For whatever reason, I neglected to check my lineup in time on Friday to make sure that Nene wasn’t left sitting on my bench. Had I checked earlier, I’d be ahead in points and steals and might own an advantage in field goal percentage, in addition to my edges in rebounds, assists, blocks and free throw percentage.

That being said, Grant didn’t exactly update his lineup in a timely manner, either. He allowed Gerald Wallace and Al-Farouq Aminu to languish on his bench, as well.

So, really, if we’d both cared enough to update our lineups in a timely manner, we’d probably be tied 4-4 anyway. I s’pose I can’t really be upset, then.

Not that I would be…

Anyhoo, here’s a look at the matchups for Saturday:

ANALYSIS

Team Hughes gets the “simple math” advantage, but I like my D-RODs’ odds of coming out ahead once the NBA’s seven-game slate is done on Saturday. Even if Alex Len doesn’t play for the Phoenix Suns, Goran Dragic and a healthy Boris Diaw should produce enough between them to at least keep pace with Grant’s not-so-fearsome foursome of Mario Chalmers, Marreese Speights, Jordan Crawford and Anthony Randolph.

Still, I wouldn’t go so far as to proclaim my D-RODs the favorites on this occasion. I don’t necessarily believe in jinxes or anything; I’d just rather not tempt the basketball gods if I can help it.
