 Jefe's NBA Rundown - 12/27
Posted by Jeff Collins on Tuesday, December 27, 2016 - 17:04

As always, the rundown is designed to give you an opinion on some different players or situations in the slate today. You need to be reacting to news throughout the day. Always keep an eye on Twitter for the most up-to-date information.

On slates like this, it’s a good idea to dial back your amount of money in play, or even take the day off altogether. I mean, I’m not going to or anything… but just saying.

 

Point Guard

Cash: S. Mack, G. Dragic

GPP: R. Westbrook, S. Mack, G. Dragic, M. Conley

Oklahoma City Thunder @ Miami Heat

Vegas: Thunder -3, O/U: 205.5

Thunder: 5th Pace, 9th Scoring, Middle of the pack points allowed

Heat: 24th Pace, 28th Scoring, 7th Points allowed

Russell Westbrook - On a small slate it is tough to fade the likely highest scoring player and it is tough to find enough value guys to make him work to. That creates a tough decision for us today. The decision many will have to make is whether to pay up for Westbrook in this matchup or Harden against Dallas. Neither spot is great, but these two guys can put up points on anybody. I am leaning Westbrook, but would not argue against anyone who went the other way.

It’s interesting the value that has popped up, and it certainly impacts roster construction and turns it into a common build that you’ll see. I love these kind of slates...

Point Guard

Cash: R. Felton, S. Napier, K. Walker

GPP: R. Felton, S. Napier, A. Rivers, P. Beverley, R. Rubio

Milwaukee Bucks @ Washington Wizards

Vegas: Wizards -5, O/U: 213

Bucks: 19th Pace, 15th Scoring, 11th Fewest points allowed

Wizards: 14th Pace, 13th Scoring, 7th Most points allowed

These two played right before Christmas and it was a blowout win by the Bucks. This game switches over to Washington and the entire starting five of the Wizards is discounted from their prices during that last matchup. The Wizards starting five usually plays huge minutes too. Most nights they guys routinely see 35 minutes, but they all played about 25 this last game due to the score. I think all five are cheap now and would not argue with anyone putting them in. I like Wall, Beal, and Gortat for cash with Porter and Markieff as tournament only plays.

Giannis Antetokounmpo - He can fill it up across the board, this game should stay closer than the last, and we have already seen point guards put up big numbers against Washington this year.

Vegas: Celtics -2, O/U: 213

Celtics: 17th Pace, 13th Scoring, 14th Fewest points allowed

Knicks: 12th Pace, 11th Scoring, 6th Most points allowed

Al Horford - The $6500 price on DK is a tad cheap for a guy who has gone for 42 or more fantasy points in four of his last five games. The Knicks are weak guarding interior bigs, so this is a solid spot in a high total game.

Isaiah Thomas - He has reeled off a 50 and 60 point outing since coming off the injury and seeing his minutes normalize to where they were pre-injury. IT2 is a stud and the one Celtics guard I have interest in. His matchup is also soft against suspect Derrick Rose defense.

It’s a short slate, so I’m not sure we can get too creative, but I’ll try to give you an idea of how I’m going to approach the slate.

 

Point Guard

Cash: Westbrook, Schroder

GPP: Westbrook, Schroder, Paul, T. Johnson, E. Mudiay

  • Vegas: Hornets -3.5, O/U: 203
  • Bulls: 23rd Pace, 23rd Scoring, 5th fewest points allowed
  • Hornets: 15th Pace, 16th Scoring, 9th fewest points allowed

Neither team plays particularly fast and both are solid on defense. This is not the ideal spot to target on a huge 14 game slate. I would not want a ton of exposure here...

Vegas: Knicks -5.5, O/U: 212.5 Knicks: 12th Pace, 12th Scoring, 6th Most points allowed Magic: 22nd Pace, 27th Scoring, 13th Fewest points allowed Nikola Vucevic - His price remains in the $6K range and this is a high total for the Magic. Vucevic is their best offensive threat and a guy who has hung up a pair of 50 spots in the last week. He also threw in a stinker in between, but the upside for GPP play here is enormous and he is definitely a guy I want tournament exposure to. Serge Ibaka - Ibaka is playing big minutes. I like him as a safe cash game play at $6K, because I think 30+ fantasy points makes sense in this high total matchup. Ibaka lacks tourney upside though, so I would not use him in GPPs.
