Smooth Moves by Evil Empire

  • Winning is like a dream come true. A very modest dream, but a dream nonetheless. A much better dream would be getting into the Toyota Hall of Fame.

  • Von Miller led the team in scoring with 17.00 points, his highest output of the season.
  • Ted Ginn Jr. exceeded scoring projections by 27.0%, with 14.54 points against a projected 11.45.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Dear, chris's Team: Sorry to hear you lost. Toyota Hall of Famers don't really know how that feels, but surely it can't feel great. Next week, just win.
  • Should have started Marqise Lee, who beat his scoring projection with 17.50 points against a projected 9.52.
  • Blair Walsh was last in the matchup in scoring, finishing below his projection for the second time this season with -1.00 point against a projected 8.25.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Austin Seferian-Jenkins during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 3.00 points against a projected 8.21 this week.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. chris's Team thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Reggie Nelson. However, he scored 4.00 points against a projected 6.75 and has now underachieved in eight straight games.
