Last night was an electric night of daily fantasy basketball, with Deron Williams connecting on an NBA record 9 treys in the first period of the Nets’ game against the Wizards. The Spurs were absolutely decimated at home by the Blazers, DeMarcus Cousins made himself relevant once again, and O.J. Mayo proved that his previous game hadn’t been a fluke.

Today’s Top Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks
Top Daily Fantasy Basketball Pick – J.R. Smith: Smith has been on the tear of his career since Carmelo Anthony went down, culminating with a career high 36 points in an eventual losing effort to the Thunder on Thursday night. As long as Melo is sitting, J.R. is the man on a team that lacks other offensive threats. The Jazz have struggled all year against skilled wing players and Smith should be able to give them fits.
Emeka Okafor: The biggest knock on Okafor this season had been the limited minutes coach Randy Wittman insisted upon confining him to. That all seems to be a thing of the past now as Okafor has logged at least 32 minutes in his past six contests. The Bobcats lack a true interior presence and Emeka has been playing extremely well this season.
Jeff Teague: After a slight drop-off in production last week, Teague has returned to career high form with his monster stat lines. Both teams in this one will be on the second half of a back to back, and I’ll give the edge to the Hawks at home, with Teague against a tired, less than 100% Deron Williams.
Luis Scola: Scola topped our list last night, and as the only true center option for the Suns has reclaimed his spot. The Rockets always promise a high scoring affair, and their big men should offer little resistance. Ride Scola for cheap before Jermaine O’Neal comes back and convolutes the front court minutes.
Andrew Bogut/Carl Landry: The Bucks have been among the league’s worst against opposing centers all season, and Bogut looks to be rounding into form as of late. Landry has shone in limited time this season, and with David Lee potentially out looks to be the main beneficiary, with a sizable amount of playing time up for grabs.
