Sunday's top lines of the night

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Since there were only two b-ball games last night, we're going to try something a little dangerous: throw some hockey knowledge into the mix. That isn't to say I understand the game completely - pin that one on Bill Wirtz for not televising Hawks games during my formative sports viewing years - but fantasy hockey is a pretty big deal to some people out there, so we may as well point out the day's top performers.

Follow along after the jump, if you dare.

Top line of the night

NBA

G Dwyane Wade - MIA
@ OK City
32 points, 10 dimes, 3 blocks, 2 three-pointers, 50 percent from the field

Wade is knee deep in the finest year of his career at the moment, finally back from two injury plagued seasons to return to form as one of the league's top players. He leads the league in scoring, but perhaps his defensive numbers are just as impressive. Wade is third in the league in steals - averaging more than two a game - and is blocking a shot and a half per game. He's a legit MVP candidate thus far - both for the Heat and fantasy owners.

NHL

LW Ryan Smyth
Vs. Calgary
1 goal, 2 assists, 6 shots on goal, +2


Smyth is no secret in NHL fantasy circles - he's owned in 95 percent of ESPN leagues - and he's on a tear right now. Smith has 10 points in his last seven games, and has put six shots on goal in each of his last two.
