Today’s slate is a great one. I have one game that I really want to focus on and I will go in depth about that below. I go over the rest of the games and injury news in the video linked above. Let’s dig right in.

New Orleans Pelicans vs Golden State Warriors- 

I love this game here. The Pelicans are in MUST win mode and my favorite player Lonzo Ball has played exceptionally well as of late, as he just came off a career game in which he scored 33 points, notched 11 rebounds to go along with 8 assists and 3 steals. The upside for Lonzo is here every night with his playstyle, and with the pace of this game and the potential for a shootout, I love him as a CORE piece to my lineups tonight. Along with Lonzo, I would like to play Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson tonight. I’m more of a fan of Ingram on FanDuel, Zion’s price is lowered finally as he came back to earth with a couple of mediocre performances, but he still presents a great upside on any given night as well. These Pelicans will be a staple for me tonight, I want to pair Lonzo with at least another Pelicans star, but also look for Steven Adams news, because Willy Hernangomez could burst into a solid value play at the C position if Adams sits. On the other side of the ball, I like Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Kent Bazemore. I think this is a great game stack.

Just keep an eye on news, I will have updates as news comes out. For me, my core plays at the moment include

CASH- L. Ball, B. Ingram, I. Stewart

GPP- Dr. Green, J. Valanciunas, Z. Williamson

Good luck tonight!
