Wow! We are back! NBA is back! Man, I missed basketball!
Basketball has been on hold since the end of February due to this ongoing deadly pandemic known as Covid-19. However, the NBA will be played, and we’re here to help you guys make money!
Russell Westbrook (DK-$9,400) Houston Rockets @ Dallas Mavericks
Westbrook is a superstar, no denying he has insane talent. On the year, he’s averaging 27.5 points per game, eight rebounds, and seven assists. He is practically averaging a triple-double. Given how this (weird) season has gone, I think he’ll come out firing.
The matchup tonight doesn’t scare me away at all. The Mavs should have trouble containing Westbrook all night and he’s going to make them pay. Mind you, Eric Gordon is out also, so Westbrook will have extra run! More playing time for a stud like Westbrook is definitely what every fantasy owner wants!
Damian Lillard (DK-$9,300) Portland Trailblazers vs Memphis Grizzlies
As expected, Lillard is fully healed from his foot injury and will be ready to rock tonight. Similar to Westbrook, Lillard is a star and the Grizzlies have absolutely no one capable of stopping him.
On the year, Lillard is averaging 28.9 points per game, 4.3 rebounds, and 7.8 assists per game. He is the type of player that can and will score at will. Tonight’s matchup is just the icing on the cake! He’s going to ball, and all owners will enjoy the ride!
DeMar DeRozan (DK-$7,700) San Antonio Spurs vs Sacramento Kings
DeRozen is going to have to carry the load for the rest of the season if the Spurs want to advance. Big man LaMarcus Aldridge is ruled out for the rest of the year due to a shoulder injury and DeRozen is going to lead the charge. Tonight’s matchup is as easy as they come as the Kings will have all sorts of problems shutting down the former all-star.
On the year, DeRozen is averaging a very impressive 22.2 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 5.5 assists per game. He will definitely be adding to those totals the rest of the year and could flirt with a triple-double on any given night.
Mikal Bridges (DK-$5600) Phoenix Suns @ Washington Wizards
Here is a gem play tonight. Bridges has been on a roll during the “preseason” once they let players play again before the season resumed. He’s coming off arguably one of his best games as a pro and his flashes of potential are beginning to grow more and more. We know he has everything it takes to be a stud and he’s showing it. Playing at an insanely high level, and he should continue to
The numbers on the year don’t show what a high level he’s playing at. Only averaging 8.7 points, four rebounds, 1.8 assists per game, that will change and the numbers will increase! Book it! He’s my SLEEPER of the night AND LOCK of the night. Easy play here for me.
That does it for this edition of Core Four! Hope you guys enjoy it and let’s get it! Good luck and stay safe!
