Kyle Korver extended his 3-point streak, just barely, to 108 consecutive games with a made 3-pointer as he made just 1 of 9 shoots from the field, including 1-for-8 from beyond the arc in the 127-110 loss to the Nets in London.
Korver is in a mini-slump as he has failed to reach double-digits in scoring in back-to-back games and failed to record a single rebound, for the first time this season, in Thursday's game. This could open a window for you to buy low on Korver, who is more than just a scorer as he is averaging about four rebounds, three assists, and a steal per game on the season.

Blue Jays signed LHP J.A. Happ to a three-year deal.
On the surface, this doesn't look like a good deal for the Blue Jays. While they're desperately in need of a starter, and Happ fits the bill as...well, a starter, this is an overpay. $12 million a year for a 33-year old pitcher who had a 3.61 ERA last year, and last had a qualified season with an ERA under 4.00 in 2007, doesn't seem like the smartest of investments. Happ does have upside, in fact he had a 1.85 ERA and 2.19 FIP (63.1 innings) in Toronto last year in Pittsburgh last year, after being traded to the team from the Mariners, but a 4.64 ERA and 4.12 FIP in 108.2 prior innings with Seattle is less than encouraging. This deal could turn out well, but it is much more likely that it is a bust for the Blue Jays. Analysis: Ben Diamond
