There are a bunch of games tonight, so there are plenty of good matchups. Here are a few we like.
Chris Paul- Paul is facing the Kings, who have given up 50 fantasy points a game to opposing point guards over the last five game. Something Paul should be able to take advantage of tonight, and he got back one of his favorite running-mates, Blake Griffin. It always helps your assist numbers if you can lob it up to Blake.
Kyle Lowry- Just behind the Kings are the Timberwolves, and yes that is who Lowry is playing tonight. They too allowed point guards to average 50 fantasy points a game over the last five games.Lowry is also averaging 40 fantasy points a game over his last five games.
Shaun Livingston- Should see more minutes with Klay out, so he has some value. Livingston when given minutes has the chance to fill up a statline.
Demar Derozan- Derozan is averaging 33 fantasy points a game over his last five, safe to say he recovered from his little slump. He also faces the T’Wolves, who have allowed the most fantasy points to shooting guards over the last five games.
Dwayne Wade- Wade has been great over these last couple games, he looks healthy and is scoring and facilitating at ease. The Blazers have also given up 42 fantasy points a game to shooting guards over their last five, so that helps too.
Kent Bazemore- With Korver out, Bazemore is seeing plenty of minutes. Plus tonight he faces his former team, so there could be some extra motivation.
LeBron James- James has a history of destroying the Nets, and throw in the fact the Cavs were embarrassed by LeBron’s former team. Yeah, it looks like Lebron is going to have a great game, no stats needed.
Chandler Parsons-Parsons is facing the Magic, who might be without Tobias Harris, and have given up 42 fantasy points to small forwards over their last five games. Looks like Parsons could be ready for a big night.
Nicolas Batum- Batum has picked up his play with Wes Matthews out, and is averaging 31 fantasy points a game over his last five. The Blazers are really forced to use him more, which helps him be more aggressive in all facets of the game.
Blake Griffin- Griffins has been pretty good since returning from injury, so tonight I think he has his welcome back game against the Kings. The Kings have allowed the second most fantasy points to power forwards over their last five games, setting Blake up for success.
Anthony Tolliver- If Greg Monroe is out again, Tolliver has some good value tonight.
Andre Drummond- If Monroe is out, great night for Drummond. If he isn’t out, still a great night for Drummond, the Sixers allow the most fantasy points to opposing center on the season and over the last five games.
Enes Kanter+Steven Adams- Ibaka is going to be out a few weeks, so these two should see plenty of minutes.
