This is a crazy time to play fantasy basketball at DraftStreet. It’s unpredictable and a lot of fun because players will leave it all on the line to leave an impression over the summer.
Tonight there are only two NBA games on the schedule.
New York Knicks at Brooklyn Nets
JR Smith will probably take 30 shots, so I picked him. He didn’t care when his team was fighting for a playoff spot so I’m sure he’ll have no regard for anyone now.
Denver Nuggets at LA Clippers
This should be a fast paced game with a lot of up and down action. Kenneth Farried and Blake Griffin thrive in these type’s of games.
My DraftStreet team
Amar’e Stoudemire: He has shown spurts of the Amar’e from 2011. He doesn’t have much to play for but with a lot of eyes on this game he’ll want to prove a lot of people wrong.
Paul Pierce: He’s a playoff guy. With the post season around the corner Pierce will heat up, plus he recently joined the 25,000 point club.
Kenneth Faried: He’ll be jumping around all game, who can blame him. Denver has a high volume offense which allows Farried to exceed in.
Darren Collison: I needed a guard that will play, he was cheap ($9,635). There’s no method to this pick.
Jamal Crawford: Always thought this guy could be a top-5 scorer if given the chance. Coming off the bench in LA he’s deserving of the Sixth Man of the Year Award.
J.R. Smith: Like I said, he will shoot like there’s no tomorrow. So pick him and let him heave.
Mason Plumlee: The kid’s got game. Filling in for Brook Lopez this season he’s done a good job of managing himself surrounded by so many vets.
Blake Griffin: He’s actually in the MVP running (won’t win it, but still). Having a monster year he’s proven any night he can score 30 and pull down 15 boards.
