Tonight we have a nice matchup with the Kawhi led Clippers taking on the Luka led Mavs. Showdown in NBA is certainly an animal. You want guys that are obviously going to score a lot of fantasy points, but you want to look for guys that are going to get minutes (value due to injury), and you don’t want guys that are going to take away from each other. Also determining if the game is going to be a blowout or not plays a much larger role. When there is a blowout, coaches go deeper into the bench and more guys get minutes. In a competitive game, the rotations usually stay pretty tight. I’ve given you what each teams player is averaging in terms of fantasy points and minutes over the last month. This can be a good starting point for the foundation of your rosters and let you build out from there. The Clippers are going to be without Paul George, so all the other Clippers benefit from that scenario. Porzingis is questionable so tread lightly with him. If he does play, I expect him to play between 18-22 minutes. He’s unplayable if that’s the case. I’m going to build around Luka, Kawhi, and Lou Williams. I believe these 3 are the musts for your lineups tonight. Be sure to stay up to date with the injury news and starting lineups as we get closer to lock!
