It’s Friday – and that means lots of NBA action to get involved in. There are some quality matchups on the schedule, and these are our NBA picks for the evening.
G – Gerald Green at Spurs
His salary hasn’t come down enough to make him a must start – but with Goran Dragic possibly out tonight, he should have some extra value.
G – Jordan Farmar vs Golden State
Is probably one of several LA Lakers you can roll with, but for the purpose of this site – he’s the cheapest and a guy with nice upside with Steve Nash, Gasol and Kaman all out for the Lakers.
G – Isaiah Canaan at Minnesota
This would be an ultimate sleeper play, but comes with huge risk. The Rockets are pretty much locked into a playoff spot and the coach probably isn’t going to run Jeremy Lin into the ground – so Canaan could get some run in this one.
G – Gary Neal at Boston
Could be in line for a boost if Kemba Walker does not play.
G – Patty Mills vs Phoenix
With Tony Parker & Tim Duncan likely out, Mills could be allowed to go off again.
G/F – Joe Johnson at Atlanta
Just a guess here, with Shaun Livingston out, Joe’s been hot and goes against a weaker team.
F/C – Kyle O’Quinn vs Washington
With Vucevic out again, O’Quinn has been holding down the paint & has been doing a good job at it.
C – Gorgui Dieng vs Houston
Looks like Pekovic and Kevin Martin are out, so that’s some shots & if you don’t like Gorgui you might look into other Wolves players.
