Picks of the Night
John Wall has been on fire in the month of March, and should continue his dominance tonight against Jameer Nelson and the Orlando Magic. Nelson still has an offensive game, but just can’t keep up defensively with quick points guards such as Wall. Kemba Walker had a nice 37 point, 7 rebound performance against Nelson on Wednesday, and with the way Wall is playing that sounds pretty reasonable.
Deron Williams is another guy who has been on fire lately, and really looks revitalized since the All-Star break. Apparently he did some sort of juice cleanse, and shed about 15 pounds which appears to really be helping his game. The Nets ran Portland off the court on Wednesday, and are really playing well right now because of D-Will. He should be able to run circles around Andre Miller, who will most likely be filling in for the injured Ty Lawson.
Al Horford puts up big night after big night, and draws a great matchup against the center-less Celtics. Brandon Bass and company will be no match for Horford’s size and energy, and he should be able to produce with ease. Whether he’s playing the power forward or the center position, Horford seems to always get his.
If LaMarcus Aldridge or J.J. Hickson has to sit out, you have to like the way Meyers Leonard has played behind these guys. If you’ve watched any Portland Trailblazers games recently, you would know that LA is playing through an injured ankle and he was limping most of the game last night. At times he would go up for layups, but be sure to only land on one foot due to the pain. On top of that, Hickson missed practice yesterday with an illness. Be sure to stay on top of the Trailblazer news tomorrow because Leonard could be in for a big night.
As mentioned above Ty Lawson looks doubtful, which means Andre Miller will be in line for all the minutes he can handle. When he gets the start he seems to reach value every time, regardless of price.
Kenyon Martin is creeping out of value on many sites, but if you can find him for a decent price he may be worth it tonight. Martin is going to log big minutes at center until Tyson Chandler returns, and he has a great matchup against the Bobcats who just surrendered 23 & 10 to Kyle O’Quinn (another guy who could be a nice value play if Nikolva Vucevic is out).
