Back at tonight after a very unfulfilled night. The reason it was unfulfilled was due to Kyle O’Quinn early departure due to a Flagrant 2 Foul early in the second quarter. He only finished with 6.1 fantasy points. Our other two picks Andrew Wiggins and K.J. McDaniels both came to play last night score 24 and 32 fantasy points respectively. With a small card tonight heres who we like:
Steve Blake, Point Guard of the Portland Trail Blazers has logged 20+ minutes in 8 straight contest. He provides aa very formidable backup to start Damien Lilliard. In 5 of those 8 games he has scored 15+ fantasy points. If the Trail Blazers can get out fast on the Pacers, Blake could see even more minutes providing more opportunity for more production.
Luke Babbitt, Small Forward for the New Orleans Pelicans, will be in the starting lineup for the second straight game. Babbitt has been in the league 4 years but still has not been able to cement any consistent minutes. However, he did have a quiet but efficient start providing 10.9 fantasy points in 15 minutes. If the coaching staff was not impressed but what they saw from him last game, i do not believe he would be starting tonight. Therefor i expect Babbitt to slide into the 20+ minute mark tonight and possibly going forward.
Normally i release 3 players, however with only 3 games on the board tonight i did not want to make a selection simply to fill a spot. Good Luck !!
