With only three games on the slate, we’re going to switch it up a bit. Here is a quick look at tonight’s games along with some analysis to help you construct your daily fantasy basketball lineups.
To start off, Dallas was the only team that didn’t play yesterday so five out of six teams will be on a back to back.
L.A. Lakers @ Milwaukee Bucks
Dwight Howard went off last night with a huge line, and draws a great matchup against the Bucks who rank dead last in defending centers. There’s no reason he shouldn’t be able to play well again tonight. With Metta World Peace out for six weeks, Jodie Meeks is starting and Kobe is shifting over to the SF. However, last night it was Antawn Jamison who saw the increase in fantasy production with 18 point & 5 rebounds.
Brandon Jennings has been ice cold but has a good matchup against Steve Nash, although playing him would be a big gamble. Ersan Ilyasova could also make for a nice play as he has been playing well since his return from a hip injury.
Indiana Pacers @ Dallas Mavericks
Dirk Nowitzki has been very hot recently, and always makes for a nice play on a night with so few games. Mike James continues to see the bulk of the minutes at point guard, making for a nice value play. Indiana is very solid defensively, so look for this game to be relatively low scoring.
For Indiana, it has been Roy Hibbert really stepping up his game in David West’s absence. They have continued to get very strong play from Tyler Hansbrough, and Psycho T’s price should creep up soon. That doesn’t change the fact that when he starts, he’s been a double-double machine.
Sacramento Kings @ Phoenix Suns
This should be the highest scoring game of the night, and should provide the most fantasy impact. As of now it sounds like Kendall Marshall might draw another start at point guard for the Suns, be sure to keep close eye on it as game time draws near. Luis Scola drew the start at center last night even with Jermaine O’Neal around, and put up 20 points and 7 boards. Wes Johnson has been playing well since he’s been starting for the Suns, and could make for a nice value play.
The Kings are coming from Golden State where Isaiah Thomas had a nice night against the Warriors, and could do the same tonight. Tyreke Evans had been playing very well until last night, so look for a possible bounce back game as long as he doesn’t have any more “stomach aches.”
