This evening we have ourselves a very solid Monday slate in the Association with a Kentucky blue painted bus driving us down #narrativestreet tonight. Three of the seven games tonight feature Kentucky vs. Kentucky stars that in the past have proven to drive a little extra motivation for each to put up inflated stats — a DFS dream. The three games featuring UK players:
Sacramento @ Washington — DeMarcus Cousins vs John Wall…Awesome matchup highlighting NBA studs with a nice 210.5 o/u and a close -4.5 spread.
Utah @ Minnesota — Trey Lyles vs. Karl Anthony-Towns…Lyles should continue to get solid run with Derrick Favors already ruled out. KAT is a monster.
Charlotte @ Memphis — Worth a mention, but Aaron Harrison vs Andrew Harrison not as newsworthy as the previously mentioned two
Another game worth a discussion is the Oklahoma City Thunder visiting the New York Knicks. A gorgeous 215 o/u with a -1 OKC spread should bring the best out of the dueling point guards — Derrick Rose and the DFS GOAT Russell Westbrook. Yesterday, the New York Post highlighted an article titled “Rising Derrick Rose is ready for Russell Westbrook — finally” In the article the phrase “Hurricane Westbrook was swirling into New York” and the statement that Rose is 100% healthy now and ready for the challenge. This has DFS fireworks written all over it.
Injury Note — It looks like the Heat tonight, at home against Boston, will be without half of their team and very, very thin at all positions. This is definitely something to monitor up until lineup lock. If Miami has 5-6 warm bodies tonight, we could see a repeat of DFS history. Lest we forget April 15th, 2015, when a similar situation for the Heat resulted in this:
Revenge Games — Garrett Temple (Sacramento @ Washington)
Birthdays — Leandro Barbosa, Andrew Bogut — both not on slate
** Reminder not to Trust The Process tonight — Joel Embiid did not travel with the team and will not play versus the Toronto Raptors
Thanks to Dave Berov – we have been been alerted of a very special bobblehead game at the Oracle!
