We have a 5 game slate with some interesting games on Thursday night so let’s get right into it.
He’s coming off a big game where he put up 37 FDP and has posted 37 FDP in his last 2 visits to Sacramento. The Kings need his offense so he’s a bit underpriced for his recent spike in production.
Dennis Smith Jr is out so bump up Ferrell in a pace up matchup against the Warriors. He put up a respectable 31 FDP against the Spurs so he should have a decent night against a shorthanded Warriors team.
Kentavious Caldwell Pope
He’s coming off a big 41 FDP performance and logged 38 minutes of playing time. Kent Bazemore torched this same defense and the Cavs are really struggling with shooting guards.
There’s risk here but Bazemore put up 45 FDP against the pistons who are currently riding a long losing streak. He doesn’t play heavy minutes but he can really fill up the stat sheet.
Lebron shot a ridiculous 82% FG percentage against the hawks and put up 62 FDP while only taking 12 shots. The Lakers play at a face pace and I can see Lebron dropping 30 points along with a bunch of other stats. He is my top overall play on the slate.
He’s increased his FDP output in 5 straight games and gets a dream matchup against the Pistons who cannot guard the SF position. He is coming off a strong performance in Cleveland so I’m riding the hot hand.
Draymond Green has been ruled out so I’m locking in Jordan Bell. He can fill up the stat sheet and has a decent floor.
You can either plug in Randle or Kuzma, but I’m going with Kuzma because he has 3PT shooting upside. He and Kentavious Caldwell Pope led the team in shots last game, plus the Cavs are giving up 57 FDP to PFs over their last 5 games.
Karl Anthony Towns
I will all over Towns against the Sixers and he went off for 61 FDP. His minutes are stable and he can fill up the stat sheet. The Kings cannot guard centers so I am building around KAT tonight.
