The Spurs beat the Wizards on Sunday 94-80. As you can imagine this wasn’t exactly a close game as the Wiz shot 38% from the field and were missing Andray Blatche and JaVale McGee who were suspended.
So yeah, the Spurs won despite the Ghost of Rashard Lewis putting up 21 points and 12 rebounds. He may still have some life left in him, but I doubt he will grab double-digit rebounds more than five times the rest of the season. John Wall did return from injury and played almost 20 minutes off the bench. It might be time to sell high on Nick Young and Kirk Hinrich. Josh Howard wasn’t too bad for Washington, scoring 11 points with six boards in 24 minutes off the bench. I think he is close to usurping Al Thornton’s role as the starting small forward. Now might be a good time to pick up Howard and drop or trade Thornton, although to be honest if you still have Thornton on your fantasy squad you may have bigger problems.
Tony Parker had a monster game of his own with 20 points, 14 assists, and six boards. Manu Ginobili also added 21 points, and George Hill returned from his own injury woes to score 11 off the bench. I think Hill’s return means Gary Neal is going back to the pine in a minute. Oh well, it was a good run. He might be worth hanging onto in fantasy leagues for another week just to see how things shake out, but I think you can find better value on the waiver wire.
