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.

Jose Abreu was 0-for-4 on Saturday ending his seventeen game hitting streak.
During his seventeen hitting streak, Jose Abreu hit .318 and was only four short of his career high set last year in his rookie campaign. But he is now hitting .283 on the season and has fallen short on the power numbers so far this year. Abreu is hitting more ground balls (49.1%) this year yet his home run to fly ball ratio has fallen nine percentage points from 26.9 in 2014 to 17.1 this season. Since the whole offense has struggled, it is exacerbated when their best hitter is not hitting on all cylinders either. Abreu is solid, but maybe not worthy of the first round status he achieved after one season in the majors. Analysis: Greg Jewett
