It’s Friday night in the Association and we get a nice 10 game slate to enjoy! The trip down narrative street starts in Dallas as Chandler Parsons makes his return… his message to Mavs fans, “Sure, boo”. No one gets excited to target a Mavs/Grizzlies game, and this one could be ugly, it also has some potential for fantasy gold. Value could be abundant for the injury riddled Mavs, and don’t look now but the Grizz are hot – on the court and on the interwebs – just ask Marc
Speaking of Gasol, the elder Pau gets his revenge tonight vs the young bucks in LA, he averaged ~50 DK points in two games vs the Lakeshow last year.
Revenge narrative street continues up the coast in Cali as Matt Barnes will certainly seek revenge against the Clippers. It’s no secret Barnes and Doc didn’t leave on good terms. We give the Barnes revenge narrative a +1 for the Boogie “hates the Clippers” narrative – Clippers & Sacramento hammer game with a side of Pau-Pau revenge, what else would you rather being doing on a Friday night?
No birthdays to celebrate for any relevant active players, but shout out to a 3-time NBA champ, Sam Cassell. No known data on an assistant coach’s birthday impact – but if you need another reason to roster Chris Paul, his assistant coach and fellow guard is celebrating his nameday, roster CP3.
