Here are the Games and Names I’ll be paying attention to, for my DraftKings NBA line-up on Tuesday, January 24, 2017
- Celtics vs Wizards: The match-up of all world PGs, and you can’t go wrong with either guy. Both John Wall for Washington and Isiah Thomas for Boston are primed to have a big night in what figures to be a high scoring game. Both teams run deeper than just 1 star, and on this day, I like Bradley Beal for Washington and Al Hortford and Jae Crowder to have big nights for Boston
- Clippers vs 76ers: This is very interesting match-up with a lot of potential in my eyes. The Clippers are hampered by injuries and have a lot of cheaper options. They are risky, but they do have a high ceiling and can be an absolute steal on any given night. Take a look at Raymond Felton, Austin Rivers and JJ Reddick as well as Mo Speights for the Clippers. The 76ers have been playing excellent basketball and TJ McConnell is a great play for tonight with no Chris Paul to contend with. Robert Covington and Ersan Ilyasova also make for interesting plays this evening with a high ceiling against the depleted Clips.
- T’Wolves vs Suns: The Suns have their issues on defense, and with the T’Wolves collection of young stars, the roster is worth a look. We all know Carl Anthony Towns, the high priced star of the T’Wolves, but I also love this match up for the athletic forward Gorgei Deng and even Zach LaVine should warrant a look. On the Suns, it’s the Eric Bledsoe show and he is always in play as the main attraction of the Suns offense.
Going Cheap: Gorgui Deng (MIN); JJ Reddick (LAC);
Going Big: Isiah Thomas (BOS); Eric Bledsoe (PHO);
