Friday's NBA DFS Picks
The NBA Schedule for Friday, March 23 has a full slate of 10 games taking place. Here is our NBA Daily Fantasy picks for tonight’s action.
Point Guard – Pacers’ Darren Collison (vs. L.A. Clippers, 7PM ET) $5,800
Collison is slowly working his way back from injury, but he has put up over 30 minutes of action in his last two games. He had 37 fantasy points against the Lakers earlier this week and I think he can do something similar against the Clippers. Los Angeles ranks 22nd in defense, so that should give Collison a great chance to rack up the assists and boost his scoring average.
Shooting Guard – Cavs’ George Hill (vs. Phoenix, 7:30PM ET) $4,900
Hill is coming off a 22-point performance for the Cavs against the Raptors and Wednesday. It was his best performance for Cleveland and he did it with 36 minutes of action. Hill has logged at least 33 minutes in three of his last four games and he now faces the awful Phoenix defense. After LeBron had to carry the Cavs against Toronto, I see the role players being relied on more tonight and with a really cheap tag, I expect big things from Hill.
Small Forward – Blazers’ Al-Farouq Aminu (vs. Boston, 10PM ET) $5,600
Aminu has been a tremendous play as of late and I am going to continue to ride him against a Boston team that struggles with forwards and centers. He has put up over 40 fantasy points in his last two games and at least 30 in four straight. I like Aminu to continue the hot streak tonight.
Power Forward – Celtics’ Greg Monroe (at Portland, 10PM ET) $5,200
On the other side of the coin, Monroe is also on a nice positive streak for Boston as the Celtics deal with some injuries. Monroe has settled in to a steady role off the bench and logged over 20 minutes in his last four games. While that’s not a ton of time, Monroe makes the most of it. He has over 32 fantasy points in three of those four games with one double-double. Boston will need him tonight to match Portland’s size and rebounding ability.
Center – Timberwolves’ Karl-Anthony Towns (at New York, 7:30PM ET) $9,800
KAT is our big-money spend tonight. The Timberwolves still have something to play for and they face a Knicks team that is in tank mode, which should give Towns plenty of options. Look for him to put up a big scoring total while pushing for double-digits in rebounds as well. I expect Towns to push for 50 fantasy points tonight.
