Dropping Dimes on the Daily: March 9, 2007

Manu GinobiliDropping Dimes On The Daily is all about the team looking at the previous night’s performances and mentioning those that did pretty goodly and those that did pretty badly.  Goodly is a word, right?  Anyway, this will be a quick look around the league, so don’t expect a ton of text, just some daily fantasy basketball goodness!!!  Please note that this is the fantasy basketball section of ElevationMag.com’s Daily Top Picks. Check it out and see your daily rumors, quotes, headlines, and facts!  But read the fantasy section HERE!

The Fig Cap: They’re not saying “boo,” they’re saying “Manuuuuu.”

Another Thursday, another quiet night in the Association.

The Bulls and Magic locked horns last night in what resulted in an ugly night for Orlando. 

Jameer Nelson put up 13 points, but only dropped one (ONE!) dime which is simply unacceptable for a point guard.  Darko Milicic was yanked after his fifth personal foul in only 16 minutes of play.  He had two points and five boards before the hook.  Dwight Howard is the lone bright spot for the Magic going for 17 points, 14 boards and two blocks.  The 5-14 from the free-throw line is the part that I could do without.  U-G-L-Y for Orlando.

The Bulls, however, put up a few decent lines.  Ben Gordon lead the way with 25 points, five rebounds and two assists.  His four treys and a steal was a nice bonus as well.  Chris Duhon quietly had a nice night with nine points, eight assists and a steal while being a flawless 5-5 from the line.  Luol Deng shined just as bright as anyone with a nice line of his own: 15 points, 14 rebounds and one block. 

Eva Longoria was in the house as the Sacramento Kings hosted her San Antonio Spurs.  The Kings didn’t exactly impress the home town crowd aside from Kevin Martin and Corliss Williamson.  Martin led the way with 26 points and 12 boards on a solid 10-20 from the floor.  Williamson came off of the bench to surprise a few people with 21 points on 9-13 shooting, three boards a block.  Mike Bibby had an off night with 12 points on 4-14 from the floor.  Ouch.

The Spurs had a much better night, even in fantasy terms.  Tim Duncan put up his typical 16 points, 13 boards, and two blocks.  The scoring was down, but this could be pegged to his 6-10 from the line.  Get that percentage up, and you have 20 points, Timmay! 

Tony Parker’s 15 points, four boards and five assists provided owners with a little Thursday love for their teams.  However, the line of the night goes to Manu Ginobili.  Gino came off of the bench again, but put up 31 points, five boards, three assists, four steals and five from long range.  The 9-16 from the floor and 8-10 from the line just made things that much better.  Oh, and he did this all in 29 minutes.  Well done, Manu.

Catch you on the rebound…
