This article highlights four of Run Pure Sports’ top plays on today’s NBA Slate.
LeBron James – DK $10.9K SF FD $10.5K SF/PF
LeBron James is a prime bounce back candidate after his stinker last time out against LAC. He should be able to get whatever he wants against this soft New Orleans Pelicans defense. Without Anthony Davis last game, he had a usage rate of 32.4% and we have seen LBJ have monster performances when Anthony Davis is not in the lineup.
Dwight Howard – DK $3.0K C FD $3.7K C
I assume Dwight Howard will start again to combat Jonas Valanciunas’ size making him a very strong play at min price on DK and near min price on FD. He started against LAC last game and dropped 44.5 FPTs in 26 minutes with a 22.7% usage rate.
Josh Hart – DK $7.5K SF/PF FD $6.9K SG/SF
Josh Hart would have even more increased responsibilities if Winslow is unable to go. He is my favorite mid-range play on the slate and could easily flash a 50+ FPT performance in a close game.
Luka Doncic – DK $11.7K PG FD $11.1K PG/SG
Like LeBron, Luka Doncic is also another bounce back candidate after an average game against UTA last time out (despite a 39.7% usage rate). I think we could definitely see the Luka vs Steph show here on national television making him a spend up you can build your lineups around.
