Bulls center Joakim Noah fined $15,000 for verbally abusing officials upon his ejection Monday.
Somewhat surprised the new commissioner did not also suspend Noah for his profane laced tirade he got in before exiting the court Monday night, (which also had me saying a few choice words myself as I owned Noah in a few DFS leagues). It may have helped Noah's case that he publicly apologized after the game and took full responsibilities for his actions, granted it didn't help those of us who rostered him last night, but it's a new night with a favorable matchup for Noah who will be well rested and thus is worth forgiving but not forgetting about in daily league play tonight.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Jahlil Okafor scored 14 points (7-18 FGA) with nine rebounds, three blocks, one steal and one assist in 30 minutes on Monday for the 76ers.
Concern came when Okafor switched to the four from the five as the guarding of stretch fours could cost him rebounds and make run more than he typically does on the block, but with the early results in, it seems that those concerns are not to be worried about. Following the best game of his young career on Saturday, Monday's outing was another very solid effort from the Duke product coming close to yet another double-double and contributing in every category. Now that we are passed the typical college season in terms of games played, it's good to see that the rookie is keeping his production steady. He should be a starter every night in all formats.
