Nikola Jokic vs Golden State Warriors:
I don’t like playing big centers against the Warriors because they play small ball more than any other team in the league but Jokic is an elite talent who can stay in the game and guard Draymond Green when the Warriors can go small. He has a big size advantage over Green and can bully the Warriors other centers on the roster. Jokic has been an elite center this year and with his high price and poor matchup on paper, you can get Jokic at low ownership which would be rare on how well he has been playing.
Marc Gasol vs Brooklyn Nets:
Stop me if you have heard this before, the Nets are really bad on defense. Nobody on the Nets will be able to stop Mike Conley and Marc Gasol running the pick and roll. Gasol will take advantage of the soft Brook Lopez defense and he has a shot of recording a triple double tonight. Gasol’s salary is surprisingly low and by pairing him up with Conley, that can lead to a lot of points and fantasy goodness.
