A you’ve been noticed, we’ve been keeping track of the Golden State Warriors’ game recently because of their historic run and on pace to become soon, the best team in NBA’s regular season history. The Warriors are coming into this game after a win over the 76ers Sunday night, 117-105. Everyone expected a blowout considering the complete opposite records and talents of the 2 teams this year. However, it was an outstanding game by Klay Thompson, who tallied 40 pts, 2 boards and a block was quite impressive, especially because it was the 2nd consecutive game he’s had 40 pts or more. His splash brother, Stephen Curry was a little quieter with 20 pts, 8 assists, 3 boards and 4 steals. Draymond Green pitched in with his usual triple-double performance, putting down 13 points, 11 boards, 11 assists, a steal and 3 blocks.

Golden State still leads the Western Conference with a 4.5-game margin lead over the 2nd seeded San Antonio Spurs. They’re on another game winning streak since being dominated by the Spurs with 4 W the past week. They’re 35-0 this season and frankly will most likely be 36-0 by tomorrow night without a doubt.

 

The Wizards broke a brief 2 game losing streak with a win last night  over the Lakers, 101-88. John Wall led the charge with 22 pts, 13 assists, 5 boards and a steal, but 7 turnovers surprisingly. Marcin Gortat had a double-double performance with 16 pts, 10 boards, a steal and 2 blocks. It was a decent night for the Wizards as they will hope to keep their composure and shoot the way they did last night, in their 54.2% success rate from the field.

They’re currently in 4th in the Eastern Conference’s South East Division and 2.5 games back from a playoff spot behind the Detroit Pistons currently sitting in 8th. They’ve won 6 of their last 8 including 3 of those on the road but are playing against a monster that wants to make history tonight.

Fantasy Baseball San Diego Padres Projection

For the upcoming 2016 Major League Baseball season, FanPicks take a look at every single team and what are their expectations for the upcoming year. Here’s a look at the National League West Fantasy Baseball San Diego Padres Projection.

Fantasy Baseball San Diego Padres Projection

The San Diego Padres have spent the last 5 years under the .500 winning percentage. They are also entering their tenth year playoff drought. Last year, it seemed that they lack the chemistry despite having a powerful lineup in place.  With the 2016 all-star game happening at Petco Park, the Padres hopes that the chemistry has finally settled in.

Players to watch

  • Tyson Ross
  • Matt Kemp
  • Andrew Cashner

Tyson Ross has collected 33 starts and over 200 strikeouts last year for the first time in his career. He’s usually overlooked in discussions about the top end starters in baseball, but after last season he looks poised to make himself more of a household name.

Last year’s superstar acquisition, Matt Kemp, nabbed 23 home runs. He will likely carry the teams offense without having much of a supporting cast around him.

Amdrew Cashner had a mystifying season, going 6–16 with a 4.34 ERA. The 29 years-old has the talent to be a regular daily fantasy pick.

Without subpar performances from the Giants, Dodgers or D-Backs, there’s not much reason to think the Padres will do anything but finish fourth again. GM A.J. Preller tried to buy his way into the postseason in 2015, by signing up big names like Matt Kemp, Justin Upton and Craig Kimbrel, and failed miserably. Now he appears to be trying out the youth approach that includes restocking the farm system. But he’s going against a division consisting of the free-spending Dodgers; the Giants, who added Johnny Cueto; and the Diamondbacks, who signed Zack Greinke. We can always hope that looks can be deceiving.
