ANALYSIS

What a difference a day makes. Yesterday, I was freakin’ out about getting smacked around by Adam Fromal’s Aggressive Layups. Today, my Derrick Rosie O’Donnells own a 7-1 advantage, with the Layups hanging on by the thread of a tie in steals.

Big ups to Goran Dragic and Nene, whose tricky fingers combined for seven steals in addition to their double-digit scoring efforts. The biggest “thanks” of all, though, belongs to Joakim Noah, who stuffed the stat sheet with a triple-double (19 points, 16 rebounds, 11 assists) in addition to his three blocks.

As great as Tuesday was for my D-RODs, Wednesday could be tough on my prospects of securing a third straight winning week, if Adam’s lineup is any indication…

ANALYSIS

It’s pretty much now-or-never for both of our teams. Tonight will feature the last full slate of games (13 in all) before the NBA’s annual All-Star break. Thursday’s TNT double-header could affect things on the margins, though I certainly toss all my eggs into that rather tiny basket.

Then again, it probably wouldn’t be the worst idea for me to hold out some hope for a savior or two on Thursday. My D-RODs are at a simple math advantage and only figure to slip further when factoring in the non-entity otherwise known as Alonzo Gee. On the flip side, Fromal has a full complement of players at his disposal, including All-Stars Blake Griffin and John Wall.

If my D-RODs are to hold the fort tonight, they’ll need big games from some surprising sources—I’m looking at you, Jameer Nelson/Boris Diaw/Terrence Ross/Paul Pierce—to keep the numbers steady and put me on track for a short-but-sweet week.

P.S. For those of you whose minds are properly located in the proverbial gutter, today marks Day No. 69 of my current “No Transactions!” streak. You’re welcome.
