Keep up to date with the latest projected & Confirmed NBA starting lineups in real-time at @nbastartlineups.
Chris Paul ($6,900) vs Warriors- Chris Paul hasn't really been scoring the ball that well in the last couple of games, 25% FG 8.6 PPG in the last 5, but they will be up against the Warriors tonight. This is the biggest game of the night and a veteran like CP3 will be at the top of his game. He has shown it earlier this season also putting up 16.5 PPG 12.0 APG and 5.0 RPG in 2 games against the Warriors this season. If there is any time for a player to be locked in, it’s against the Warriors in a prime time matchup.
Bradley Beal ($9,800) vs Magic- I always seem to miss out on Bradley Beal’s best games but that won’t be the case tonight. He comes into tonight’s game averaging 26.5 PPG 7.8 APG and 8.0 RPG in the last 6 games overall. He has also been able to dominate the Magic in their matchup this season putting up 25+ PPG 6 RPG and 5 APG. He has been playing at an elite level pretty much all season and I don't see that changing tonight against a team he has proven to play well against.
Jabari Parker ($5,600) vs Magic- Sticking with the Wizards I like Jabari Parker tonight coming off the bench for Washington. He is playing enough minutes for him to have value and knowing Jabari Parker will get his shots up is also a plus. He has double digit attempts in 5 of the last 6 games and he has actually been efficient shooting 63% in those games and 42.9% from 3. In my opinion Jabari is playing at a level that makes him very valuable at this price point.
Blake Griffin ($8,100) vs Heat- Blake Griffin let us down in a big way the other night going 1/10 from the field with 10 points 6 assists and 7 rebounds. I expect a big bounce back game from him tonight against the Heat. In 3 games against the Heat this season he has been superb averaging 25.3 PPG 10 RPG and 7.3 APG. The big plus of Blake Griffin’s play this season has been his ability to produce in many different aspects and that paired with the injury to Reggie Jackson he could be forced into an even bigger playmaking role.
Jarrett Allen ($4,700) vs Thunder- Allen comes in at a very reasonable price tonight against the Thunder. Allen is averaging 11.7 PPG and 6.7 RPG on 77% shooting from the field in his last 6 games. The Thunder are an above average defensive team against big men but at the price with his ability to put up solid block numbers as well I can’t pass it up.
Josh Jackson ($3,700) vs Jazz- Lastly I like Josh Jackson as a value play tonight in a spot where I feel like he is severely underpriced. I understand he isn’t putting up the best numbers but coming off of a game with 26 FPTS and receiving 20+ minutes per game I am willing to take a risk rostering him tonight in a fast pace Suns offense where he can get out and get some easy points and make an impact on the glass, 8 rebounds in his last game.
