Tonight’s expert basketball daily top plays take aim for close games amidst the blowouts.
There’s a method to the madness this late into the NBA season, and avoiding unfavorable situations is just as crucial as identifying the correct players in each matchup. Many teams are in in self-preservation mode while others are a full-on tankfest. Both of these scenarios add heightened risk to the mix, as playing time and game-planning can easily deviate from night to night. When you find games with teams who are either unlikely to tank or that still have something left to play for it’s good to target players from those matchups.
Tonight’s expert basketball daily top plays finds us favoring these games, as finding the perfect mix of value and favorable situation is too good to pass up. Let’s take a look at the expert basketball daily top plays we’ll be rostering this evening.
Five Guys Expert Basketball Daily Top Plays
Paul Millsap $12,100 - Millsap plays with a motor that would dictate ferocity regardless of the team situation. When you consider the Hawks are barely clinging to a playoff berth he becomes a coveted target in this matchup against a weak Phoenix interior.
Gordon Hayward $10,100 - The Pistons have one of the weakest defenses in the league, and while the Jazz aren’t exactly lighting the world on fire they do have enough studs to get the job done.
Trey Burke $8,500 - Alec Burks is once again out for tonight’s game, and that means heavy minutes for Burke are all but guaranteed. The price tag and recent play combine to form a superior value.
Al Jefferson $12,600 - Big Al is a stud in every sense of the word, and after having a down week by his standards he came back strong last outing. Tonight he’ll be playing up in pace against a Rockets team possibly without Dwight Howard.
Omer Asik $7,500 - This is a pure price play. If Dwight Howard sits out again you nearly have to play him.
