DH doesn't know what he is missing, rey!

The Lakers just signed Mike D'Antoni as coach. The moment Nash is back, wait for his stats to go through the roof. He will run the game through Nash as much as through Kobe. I am jealous of you :(

Anyway, I think it's time for my second tip of the week.

Week two tip of the week - Team Matchups

So, coming in to a matchup, you are looking at your team and have two people you are really having trouble picking between. Who do you pick?

There are lots of factors to take into account, and today I'm going to be looking at one of those, which is matching up against a different team.

Lets say one of the two players your are deciding between is playing "Hou, Mem, Tor" the other one is playing "Dal, Cha, Lal". How do you know which of these matchups is best? In Fantasy Football, it gives you a nice rank which says how good the opposing team is in that area, and projects for the week. In fantasy basketball, it doesn't.

First of all, make sure you know what the three letter combos stand for. It should be pretty straight forward on the whole, but if you have any questions you can post them here.

Then you need a good way of figuring out what matchups are good, and what matchups are bad. Keep an eye on something like the NBA.Com power rankings:

http://www.nba.com/2012/news/powerranki ... f:nbahpt6c

The power rankings themselves are not the key thing. Rather, each team has three rankings. 'Pace, Offensive, Defensive'.

These are important for figuring out how well your players might do against the teams they are facing this week.

"Pace" is how many possessions a team has per game - its about how fast they play the game. If your player is playing against a fast team, his team is likely to get more possessions than usual. More possessions means more chances for stats, so his production in that game is likely to be above his average.

"Offensive" is how many points that team scores per 100 possessions - a higher offensive ranking means the players on that team are good at getting their shots in and at not turning the ball over. If your man is playing against a team with a high offensive ranking, it might mean that there will be less opportunities for your player to get rebounds, steals and blocks. A team with a good offensive ranking might mean that players who are good in these areas are less productive than usual.

"Defensive" is how many points are scored against that team per 100 possessions - it means they are good at stopping the other team getting their shots in. If your man is playing against a team with a high defensive ranking, it might mean that your player's shooting percentage is lower than usual, and there are less opportunities for assists.

These numbers may shift throughout the season depending on injuries, coach changes etc. Keep an eye on any shifts.

An ideal team matchup for your player is a high number for pace (eg 1) but a low number for offense and defence (eg 30).

Yeah, I thought the same thing when I read that article. D'Antoni is known for offense....defense, not so much.

I can't believe they passed on Phil Jackson, though....that seems a little nutty.

It's only one day. :D I'm getting beat by 76 after Monday by Aces. It's not hard to make up that amount of points. Now, if you were going into Sunday down that much you might need to worry a little bit.

I know...I was sad because I think this is the first time I've trailed in a basketball game so far. Makes me nervous. :unsure:

It's kind of lame, it looks like you need an 'nba account' for this, I don't think you used to.

Anyway, I was about to make a big plug for doing this, since I thought it might be fun. But if you don't feel like signing up for an account don't.

Otherwise - big plug time:

Vote for your fantasy players to be NBA All-Stars! If you have players that are performing great for you, why not vote to have it recognised in the all star team?

You can vote once a day (or less) so go crazy. But not too crazy!

Despite my football mishaps (see football thread), at least I am finally in the lead against Timmer! I told him this in our private chat on espn, but taking Timmer out at basketball would certainly boost my confidence for the rest of the season!

Oh basketball gods, please make it so! XD
