Dame Lillard vs GSW ($8,900) - If Portland is gonna keep it close, Dame is going to have to go off. And with a banged up Steph Curry, he might just.

Brook Lopez vs ORL ($8,700) - Lopez’s last game against Orlando, he put up 59 fantasy points. And Orlando has done much better since, giving up 55 fantasy points a game to centers their last five games.

Klay Thompson vs POR ($7,800) - Four straight 40+ point fantasy games for Klay, and with Steph Curry’s leg injury, there could be more opportunities.

Kevin Love vs MIN ($7,200) - The T’Wolves have allowed power forwards to average over 40 fantasy their last five games. Also, expect Love to come to play against his former team.

Dirk Nowitzki vs MIL ($6,900) - Dirk should get plenty of open looks against a poor Bucks defense.

Victor Oladipo vs BKN ($6,000) - Oladipo has put up 35 fantasy points in three of his last four games , and has a favorable matchup against Brooklyn.

Chandler Parsons vs MIL ($5,400) - Over the last five games the Bucks have allowed small forwards to average 43 fantasy points a game. As well, Parsons no longer has a minutes restriction and is coming off a 37 fantasy points game.

Mario Chalmers vs DEN ($4,900) - Mike Conley is out again tonight, so there will be plenty of minutes for Chalmers.

James Johnson vs WAS ($3,500) - With DeMarre Carroll out, Johnson received the start Wednesday and I expect the same tonight. Plus, the Wizards allow the most fantasy points to small forwards in the league.
