Friday NBA Plays

December 7th 2012 16:36
Recap from last night: Well it is better for me to stick with fantasy sports then betting on sports. I picked up a loss on Xavier last night in which not only did they not cover the line they lost straight up. Well back to fantasy basketball tonight with a big card and I have a few guys who I have on my radar tonight.


Al Horford vs. Washington: Horford was one of my top picks on Wednesday night and I like him again tonight. Horford has been on a roll as of late scoring 38, 30 and 48 fantasy points his last three games. He gets his shot at a Washington team tonight who ranks in the bottom six for fantasy points allowed to centers this season. Horford dropped 37 fantasy points on Washington in the first meeting this season and I am looking for the same result tonight if not more.

Roy Hibbert vs. Denver: Hibbert has had a down year thus far but tonight he has a chance to turn things around against Denver who ranks dead last for fantasy points allowed to centers. Hibbertís strength is his ability to block shots and Denver ranks in the bottom five for blocks allowed per game. We should see Hibbert score double figures and come close to double figure for rebounds but I think we see at least 3-5 blocks which will be big for his fantasy point score. If you donít want to spend the money on Horford then it is possible to look at Hibbert being the next option for you.


Glen Davis vs. Sacramento: Davis has been a decent fantasy option this season but as of lately he has been starting to heat up. Over the last three games Davis has scored 32, 40 and 40 fantasy points. He now gets a chance to keep that hot streak going with a matchup against the Kings who rank dead last in fantasy points allowed to power forwards. I think there is a good chance we see that hot streak continue tonight and he has a reasonable price tag for everyone to build around.

Josh Smith vs. Washington: I know I mentioned above about Al Horford having a possible big night tonight but you donít need to look far for another guy who should put up big numbers tonight. Smith has really started to heat up as of late scoring 33, 43 and 50 his last three games. Smith handed it to Washington in the first meeting this season dropping 44 fantasy points on Washington. This might be the guy you have to spend money on tonight.

Rudy Gay vs. New Orleans: Rudy has come down in price the last few days on a lot of sites and now he could be a steal tonight. Gay will face off against a New Orleans team that ranks dead last in fantasy points allowed to small forwards (38.2). Gay faced New Orleans four times last season averaging almost 30 fantasy points per game. I like him to have a big game tonight.


Kobe Bryant vs. Oklahoma City: Oklahoma City is one of the better teams at containing the two guard this season. Usually I would not try and make a play on Bryant tonight due to his price tag and his tough matchup. I do though feel from a mental stand point he is going to come out fired up and ready to put a hurting on the Thunder for some revenge from last season getting knocked out of the playoffs by OKC. Bryant is one of the best players all time to come through the NBA and we should see that from him tonight. Doesnít hurt either that he has scored 40 or more fantasy points in three straight games (46 FPPG). I think we see Bryant do everything in his man power to grab a win tonight as he wants revenge.

Jameer Nelson vs. Sacramento: Nelson is a guy who is priced very reasonable with plenty of upside tonight. He will face a Kings team that allows the second most fantasy points to point guards. Over the last few games Nelson is starting to come around averaging 29.3 fantasy points per game the last three games. The price tag is reasonable on Nelson who has the potential for a big night tonight.

Joe Johnson vs. Golden State: Johnson struggled to start the season in his new surroundings in which we saw his price tag drop significantly over time. Johnson though seems to be getting a hand on his role in the Nets offense and has put up some decent games the last few nights for his cheap price tag. Johnson is averaging 22.5 fantasy points the last four games. Golden State is allowing 30.7 fantasy points per game to shooting guards. The interesting thing that caught my eye about this game is the total is posted at 195 which seem high for a Brooklyn team that has played solid defense this season. Odds makers donít give free money so they are predicting a higher scoring game between these two which means Johnson should get his points.

Well I hope this information is able to help some of you fantasy nuts on this action packed Friday night of NBA action. Remember if you have not gotten into any daily fantasy contests it is not too late so head over to one of the daily sites and play in some of the games.

Good Luck Everyone!
