DeAndre Hopkins, whose 29.93 points were the third-highest score by a player this week, carried The Raging Throners past Hos' Team 137.58 to 90.28. These two teams are tied for fourth place with 4-4 records, but it smells like BS, as The Raging Throners knows they're the much better squad, leading in total points 1,009.02 to 938.35. This is the kind of victory the grandchildren will hear about. The 47.30-point margin of victory was the second-highest recorded in the league this season. When assigning blame following this loss, Hos' Team can look in the mirror. They started a player with zero points (the Jacksonville Jaguars Defense).
