Draft Kings NBA – January 11, 2017

The Games and the names to follow:

  • Knicks vs 76ers:  We have 2 struggling teams who have major issues playing defense.  For the 76ers, I love TJ McConnell at PG, Robert Covington at the Forward and uber talented big man Joel Embiid.  For the Knicks this can be a favorable match-up for anyone of their big 3 – Carmelo Anthony, Kristaps Porzingis and Derek Rose
  • Wizards vs Celtics:  Both teams have no issues scoring and have all world Guards who like to push the ball. Both teams are on the 2nd part of a back to back game, so some fatigue maybe a factor, but if the game goes high pace as anticipated we have options to consider on both sides with Boston having Isiah Thomas, Jae Crowder and Al Hortford, while on the Wizards, John Wall, Otto Porter, Bradley Beal and Marcin Gortat deserve attention
  • Cavaliers vs Blazers:  This is a great match-up for the Cavs, and especially Kevin Love who should thrive against the Blazers.  For Portland , it’s about Lillard and McCollum leading the way, but don’t sleep on Plumlee who is playing terrific basketball and is a intriguing fantasy option

Going Cheap: T.J. McConnell ( 76ers) and Kelly Olynyk (BOS)

Going Big:  Joel Embiid (76ers); Carmelo Anthony (NYK); Isiah Thomas (BOS); Kevin Love (CLE)
