NBA Cash Breakdown 12/5

NBA Cash Breakdown 12/5

Pretty big 10-game NBA slate tonight. We got the news half way through the day that John Wall was going to miss tonight and that is obviously big news and we need to figure out how to best take advantage of that. The matchup with the Hawks just elevates that even more as it is one of the best matchups in basketball. Nikola Mirotic is still questionable, which is obviously huge, as we saw what Julius Randle was able to do without him in the lineup. Luka Doncic and Dennis Smith are questionable, which, again, is obviously huge. Gary Harris being out for Denver certainly bumps Murray a bit for me. That is pretty much it on the injury side, now let’s take a look at who you should be targeting in your cash games tonight. 

Core 4

Steven Adams (DK $6,700) (FD $7,700) 

I like him on DK quite a bit more, but man, this matchup is so good. We just saw Tristan Thomson kill BKN for 19 and 14 for 44 DK points in 34 minutes. Adams and TT are pretty similar players and the rebound upside is massive here. Brooklyn also drives to the rim a ton so the block upside should also be there. BKN is also fourth worst on the defensive glass which should lend itself to some offensive rebounds and easy put backs. I have written up Adams before and I just love playing him in cash games.
