Notes from Alex Kennedy on his team:

* I was tempted to grab a big-name player like LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony or John Wall, but instead I went for more of a balanced approach. I didn’t want to put all of my eggs in one basket. Even though my team doesn’t have a ton of star power, these are players who have been productive early in the year so I’m hoping they continue to play well.

* Nik Pekovic is playing Nik Vucevic, who is the king of putting up solid numbers but then getting dominated on the defensive end. I’m also covering this game, so this should make things a little bit more interesting. If you hear screaming from the press box in Orlando, it means Pek is going off and potentially making me a rich man.

* I’ve said many times that I think Indiana will fall out of the playoffs this year, but someone has to score there and I think Donald Sloan will be that guy. He has been playing well early in the season and filling the stat sheet, and I think that will continue. He’ll have the ball in his hands a lot.

* I think Gordon Hayward will follow up his game-winning shot against the Cavaliers with a big performance against Chandler Parsons, who is another player who gives up a lot of numbers to opposing players (like Vucevic). I’m banking on Jimmy Butler going off against the Philadelphia D-Leagers as well.
