the Association gives a monster 11-game slate from which to pull several narratives from so let’s get to it:
Greg Monroe (Milwaukee) gets his former team, the Detroit Pistons, in a home game for the Bucks. Greg hasn’t been shy to light up his former team averaging 33.3 DraftKings points per (photo below) and 31.9 Fanduel points in six meetings against the Pistons. Monroe is priced at $5,800 on FD and just $4,900 on DK for the #revenge narrative.

JaVale McGee (Golden State) travels back to Denver to take on his former club. McGee spent a total of four seasons during two different stints with the Nuggets over his current eleven year career. In two meetings this season, JaVale in limited playing time (15 and 9 minutes) is averaging an absurd 1.41 fantasy points per minute. Zaza Pachuilla has already been ruled out so McGee with continue to start for Golden State. 1.41 fppm!!
Andrew Iguodala (Golden State) also gets a #revenge game against the Nuggets where he spent the 2012-2013 NBA season. Past performances versus Denver haven’t proven fruitful from a fantasy perspective as he is averaging just 18.9 Fanduel points per game in eleven games.
Jae Crowder (Boston) returns to Dallas tonight where he spent 3 seasons with the Mavs before signing with the Celtics. Crowder was scratched from Saturday’s game in Utah due to a “family matter” where Jae flew to Dallas to attend the matter. Not sure of his availability for tonight’s game, but if he does go, perhaps a inspiration spot due to the family issue.
Scott Brooks (Washington) gives us a #coachrevenge spot as he gets the Thunder where he spent seven years coaching before taking over the Wizards this season. Brooks traveled back to OKC on November 30th, 2016 where the Wizards lost in OT 126-115. Westbrook dropped a 35 point, 14 rebound, 11 assist ho-hum triple double in the process. The game currently sports a 217 over/under and will be aired on TNT starting at 8:00 est. These Monday games now on TNT have proven to be get-up sports for both team, most notably last Monday when LeBron did this to these same Wizards: LeBron Shot
New Orleans @ Phoenix — 7 former Kentucky Wildcats are getting together for a basketball social with a whopping 220.5 total. Anthony Davis, Terrence Jones, Eric Bledsoe, Devin Booker, Brandon Knight and Tyler Ulis will battle for bragging rights on campus.
We do have a #bobblehead game in Dallas as they host the Boston Celtics. Seth Curry gets his #bobblehead game. Curry has had a solid breakout type season with the Mavericks decimated by injury in the back court. This is the 8th #bobblehead game for Dallas this season. Harrison Barnes, Devin Harris and Deron Williams in their games all exceeded their value threshold.
Good Luck tonight! As always, let us know what we missed @nbanarratives — Thank you!
