Hope you guys are enjoying your Saturday! For tonight’s loaded slate of NBA games I’m gonna give you one big name & the rest of the guys will be under the radar picks to hopefully set you apart from the rest of the pack in a good way.
Chris Paul, Los Angeles Clippers: CP3 has been crazy consistent as of late and gets to face a Pistons defense that gives up an average of 39 SL points a game. Also, Detroit has been giving up a league worst 12 assists a game over the past few weeks. We all know how CP3 loves to share the ball.
Trey Burke, Utah Jazz: The Magic give up 39 SL points against opposing point guards. Good thing Burke gets to play Orlando tonight! Last time these teams faced off, Trey had 30 points, 7 rebounds & 8 assists. This is as safe as it gets for an under the radar pick.
Matthew Dellavedova, Jarrett Jack, Dion Waiters & Alonzo Gee, Cleveland Cavaliers: Yeah, I know this is an awful lot of Cleveland Cavaliers, but there’s good reasoning behind this so hear me out. Injuries have ravaged Cleveland as of late opening up a bunch of playing time. Yes, I know they play Houston tonight but Houston plays an uptempo game with not a lot of defense. If I had to pick one out of the group, I’d go Waiters.
