Just like making out your football lineup every Sunday, fantasy b-ball is all about matchups. Just look at the top three guys above. The opponents in those games: the Suns, Warriors, and
Sonics Thunder. Golden State plays at the fastest pace of any team, Phoenix ranks ninth - and they've been player much fastest since the J-Rich trade. What that means is a lot of possession which translates into gaudy fantasy stats. Not only is it good to own players on quick teams (hey, even Chris Duhon isn't a bad fantasy option this year under D'Antoni), it's good to start players against quick teams. And as for Foye, well, he was playing the Thunder. Enough said.
