Our fantasy game, that is. I know that the Pacers' defense is good enough to win some games, but I did not think it will be Game 1. Should we start picking Knicks?
I think it is too early. Give me another Knicks loss in the next two games, and you will see Melo put forward. Until then, I am not picking Knicks yet. A Game 2 Knicks win can put them back on track.
So am I still picking a Pacer? Well, nope.
A Thunder then? Nope! Well yes they just won because of one steal (by Fisher that led to KD's shot) and many believe that the Grizzlies should have won that game, and that the loss of Westbrook just meant the Grizzlies are favored.
That's the problem... the Grizzlies did not win Game 1. That and the thinking that the Thunder can still get this series -- that is why I am sticking to the plan of picking Mike Conley. It is a risk, but I don't think he will go 5 of 15 again like he did in Game 1.
Good luck with your picks.
