February 9th #NARRATIVESTREET

Thursday in the Association provides us with just five-games, but it’s not without stars, narratives and a little revenge sprinkled in. Let’s get to it:

Tonight we direct our top #narrative to Nikola Vucevic, the 7’0″ center for the Orlando Magic who gets the 76ers at home on a road back-to-back. “Vooch” was drafted by Philadelphia but spent just his rookie 2011-2012 season with them before being shipped out-of-town. Since then, Vucevic has destroyed them with massive DFS games (DraftKings game logs):

Vucevic will be popular after his massive 50+ burger Tuesday night versus Houston, but the data is there, the narrative is there and the upside is certainly there. Fire him up!

Justin Anderson does have a #bobblehead night, but the minutes have been so inconsistent this season and especially lately that he is certainly hard to trust.
