PG – Jarrett Jack, New York Knicks vs Portland Trail Blazers
Jarrett Jack is having himself quite a time in the Big Apple. The veteran has been killing it of late, putting up 8.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 7.6 assists over his last five games. Thanks to those numbers, he’s far exceeded his fantasy value in four of those five games. You’d have to figure the clock will strike 12 for the 34-year-old’s remarkable run, but with his price still relatively low, why not roll the dice on him and his ability to provide terrific fantasy value one more time against the Portland Trail Blazers tonight?
SG – Klay Thompson, Golden State Warriors vs Sacramento Kings
The Golden State Warriors could be down to their bare bones tonight with Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, and Andre Iguodala all questionable against the Sacramento Kings. Given Steve Kerr’s habit of erring on the side of caution, there’s a good chance at least two those players sit out. That means more shots for the one full healthy Warriors All-Star, Klay Thompson. Klay has been on a nice hot streak of late as he’s put up 23 points in three of his last four games. With a couple more shots coming his way, he should be a fairly good bet to keep that hot streak going against the Kings.
SF – DeMarre Carroll, Brooklyn Nets @ Houston Rockets
With yet another key player in Rondae Hollis-Jefferson going down for the Nets, DeMarre Carroll stepped up with a season-high 24 points, 6 rebounds, 2 steals, and 4 3-pointers to give the Nets the big win over the Memphis Grizzlies last night. With the Nets’ options offensively getting more and more limited, Carroll should be worth playing even on the second night of a back-to-back against a run-and-gun Houston Rockets team.
PF – LaMarcus Aldridge, San Antonio Spurs vs Dallas Mavericks
LaMarcus Aldridge had a surprising first this season as he failed to top at least 20 points in back-to-back games against the New Orleans Pelicans and the Charlotte Hornets. However, it’s hard to see that streak extending beyond two games, especially with LMA set to face the Dallas Mavericks tonight. Aldridge punished the Mavs to the tune of 32 points, 5 blocks, 4 assists, and 2 blocks last time they met a couple weeks ago. And given how competitive the Mavs have been making their matchups recently, Aldridge should have the time he needs to work himself into another big game.
C – Nikola Vucevic, Orlando Magic @ Indiana Pacers
These are tough times for the Magic, who have now lost eight in a row. However, their recent losing streak hasn’t stopped Nikola Vucevic from putting up strong numbers. The Montenegrin big man has put up a double-double in his last four games, including a strong 25-point, 13-rebound effort in just 29 minutes against the Pacers last week. Indiana remain remarkably shaky at containing opposing big men, which makes Vooch another intriguing play.
