Some Games and some Names:
Here are the games and the names I’ll be monitoring tonight when putting together my Draft Kings NBA line-up
- Rockets vs Heat: The wide open style of the Houston Rockets is in for a stern defensive test vs. the scrappy Heat. But it’s the guys on the Heat squad who I think have a great match-up to shine in the DFS world. Hassan Whiteside should be a force against the undersized Rockets. Goran Dragic and Tyler Johnson should have plenty of good looks at the guard position, and James Johnson continues to put up solid numbers at Forward.
- Raptors vs Nets: The Nets ineptitude to defend will make this a dream match-up for guys like DeRozan and Lowry, while Valenciounis and DeMarre Carroll all warrant a look. Let’s hope it’s not a blowout so the Toronto guards can log big minutes. For the Nets, with the continued absence of Jeremy Lin, you have couple of cheap, but risky options. Consider guys like Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, and also, as a risky daily play, Spencer Dinwiddie
- Nuggets vs Lakers: This is primed to be a huge game for Nicola Jokic if he can stay out of foul trouble. The Lakers will run into problems defending him tonight. Two young guards in this game have a high ceiling, and both should be going head to head. D’Angello Russell of the Lakers and Emanuel Mudiya of the Nuggets both have an opportunity to have solid numbers in this game.
Going Cheap: Spencer Dinwiddie (Nets)
Going Big: Nicola Jokic (Nuggets); Hassan Whiteside (Heat); DeMar DeRozan (Raptors)
