My Favorite Plays of the Night

PG Shabazz Napier ($4,700)

Napier has earned the starting lineup and is averaging around 28 FDP over his last 2 starts. The Hawks are coming off a b2b road loss in a close game VS the Raptors so all the Nets are in play tonight.

SG De’Angelo Russell ($7,700)

He’s inconsistent but when he gets a good matchup, he can really go off and drop 50+ FDP points. Tonight’s matchup doesn’t get any better as he faces a Hawks team that he roasted for 55 FDP in just 29 minutes. He’s the ultimate GPP play tonight.

SF Brandon Ingram ($6,900)

He lead the Lakers in FGA (21) and produced a nice all-around stat line against the Mavericks in Dallas. He’s been benefiting from Lebron James’ absense and he could play 40+ minutes in this game.

PF Anthony Davis ($12,500)

I mentioned Thaddeus Young in yesterday’s article and he rewarded owners with 42 FDP against the Cavs frontcourt. Tonight, Anthony Davis gets a dream matchup at home VS a Cavs team coming off a b2b. There’s enough value to squeeze him into your lineups tonight.

C Deandre Jordan ($7,800)

He racked up 19 rebounds in his last game and the Suns just allowed 44 FDP to Willie Cauley Stein who outplayed Ayton and got him into foul trouble. He’s averaging around 42 FDP over his last 2 home games and he seems like a safe lock at Center tonight.

My Favorite Game Stacks of the Night

Mavericks – Barea, Barnes, Finney-Smith, Jordan

Both Dennis Smith Jr and Luka Doncic are questionable and this could open up a ton of value for the Mavericks. They play much better at home and the Suns are coming off a b2b win Vs the Kings. You can stack the Mavericks tonight who are in a great spot.

Nets – Napier, Russell, Carroll, Davis

The Nets are in a great matchup tonight Vs the improving Hawks who recently blew out the Heat and almost upset the Raptors at home. Napier and Russell are in a great spot while Carroll (if he plays) and Davis should feast off the bench.

Sixers – Wizards

The home team has dominated this series as of late and both teams played yesterday in Philadelhpia. This is a bounec back spot for the Wizards who got blown out in Philadelphia. Beal, Green, Dekker and Bryant are all in play. On the Philadelphia side, you can play Simmons, Shamet and Jimmy Butler.

Bucks – Rockets

A preview of the NBA Finals? These are two of the hottest teams in the NBa and this makes for a nice game stack. The Rockets have won 5 straight at home Vs the Bucks so they get my preference. James Harden and Capela are my main targets here with PJ Tucker coming off a big game. On the Bucks side, GIannis, Middleton, Lopez and Brogdon are strong plays.
