Fantasy Basketball Daily News and Notes, January 4, 2013
Only two games on the NBA schedule for Thursday night, but tonight is loaded with 11 games for the big Friday night tournaments on FanDuel and DraftStreet. Don’t forget about the Friday night $200,000 Qualifier over on FanDuel. I’ll be posting some of my favorite picks for the tourney later today.
San Antonio 83 @ New York 100
Tim Duncan only 24 minutes, 11 points and 6 rebounds. This one was a blowout and several of the Spurs got some rest.
Tony Parker 11 points and 6 assists.
Tiago Splitter 3 blocks.
Danny Green 2 of 6 from three.
Kawhi Leonard has been slow getting going in his return from injury, 1 of 5 from three for 7 points.
Manu Ginobili only 2 of 10 shooting for 8 points.
Stephen Jackson suffered an ankle injury and could miss some time.
Carmelo Anthony 23 points on 20 shots.

Ricky Rubio missed the game with a sore back.
Ty Lawson was back in action, 23 minutes, 16 points.
