January 5th #NARRATIVESTREET

Another eight game slate tonight provides us with a Harden / Westbrook showdown on national T.V., a mid-range #bobblehead night with some revenge sprinkled in. Let’s take a look….

Our covey boy is Deron Williams who exactly zero people get excited to roster in daily fantasy. He’s a mid-range option with limited upside in his advanced age, but a #bobblehead giveaway to the first 5,000 fans who attend the game can even get old man Deron up for a 7x showing…..we think.

It’s a tough spot for Oklahoma City playing on a road back-to-back, but the Thunder travel to Houston for a spotlight Harden (nickname: HoboFeet) vs. Westbrook slug fest. The Vegas line has already climbed two points to a juicy 224.5 total so expect DFS goodness on both sides of the ball in this one. Avoid your family and lock into this must-see television event.

Birthdays

Tyler Ulis (Suns @ Mavericks) — buried on the bench, gets limited run
