Well, it is a short slate and a fascinating short slate at that. What is unique as all three of these games could be blowouts. Houston is going to destroy the Knicks. Trail Blazers and Raptors both have the ability to destroy the Heat and Hornets. So where do we go for selections today. The key to winning tournaments this week is choosing the correct Knick, who will it be? I am learning to Early, this is going to be a blowout he may see over thirty minutes. Also, a lot of people played him yesterday and got burned so they will not be on him and he is minimum salary. Acy had one great game, Aldrich is high risk of foul trouble against Howard and Harden. Hardaway will be guarded by Ariza and Brewer. Calderon gets Beverly. In other words all their matchups suck, they may get only 70 points go cheap with Early, because everyone has a bad matchup. I also do not hate Jason Smith, he has the best matchup of all the Rockets but he is still Jason Smith.
Now onto the Studs we have Lillard, Aldridge, Lowery, Howard, Wade, Bosh, Walker or Harden. I love Aldridge against the Heat, the Heat get destroyed by the Knicks and the Heat could stick around. Wade is interesting he is playing up in pace and Wesley Matthews might be out. Lillard against Chlamers is tasty.
Between Harden and Howard I like Howard but I really am avoiding them because I could see this being a thirty forty point blow out and them getting three quarters, with McHale limiting minutes during the game. With Lowery you have to be careful if DeRozan is back you cannot pay his 9800 salary. I like Kemba a lot because the Raptors are horrible defensively, and he has incredible usage. The one caveat they played last night, while the Raptors rested and waited. But saddle up Henderon at 4900 or take a flier on Neal at 3600, or Kidd Gilchrist at 5300. Be very careful with Zeller he can have games where he scores lie zero points.
If DeRozan is back avoid all the Raptors, there will be two usable games but it is impossible to figure out who it will be. Batum if Matthews is out is interesting. If Freeland is out Kaman and Meyers Leonard become very interesting.
