James Harden finished with 27 points, five rebounds, six assists, and a steal in a losing effort to the Trail Blazers Sunday night.
The 27 points look nice, but not when you consider he shot just 28.6% from the field (8-for-28), including making only three triples in 14 attempts. The Rockets will look to rebound and tie the series at a game apiece in Game Two on Wednesday.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Indians optioned P Josh Tomlin to Triple-A Columbus.
Tomlin has some upside if he can repeat his 8.13 K/9 from last season, but home runs will likely always be an issue. Tomlin has allowed 1.41 HR/9 over his big league career, far too high for him to be a consistent fantasy producer. He will almost certainly be in the rotation at some point and could even get the call up before Danny Salazar even though Salazar has far more upside for fantasy. Analysis: Steve Pimental
