Duane Washington over 1.5 at three points (-118)
Duane Washington Jr. raced a lot for the shorthanded Indiana Pacers, recording 29.8 and 34.4 minutes in his last two games. The prolonged burn is set to continue tonight, as we screen it for 30.3 minutes with several Indiana players – including Malcolm Brogdon and Caris LeVert — always not.
Washington has shown he’s ready to let it fly, attempting a total of 15 treys in his last two outings. He made four – all of which came in Indiana’s last game. He should have a lot of looks against a New York Knicks team that abandons the sixth highest three-point attempt rate (42.9%).
We expect Washington to do 1.9 trebles on 6.0 tries.
Ja Morant Less than 26.5 points (+100)
Ja Morant is riding a radiator, scoring 36, 30, 41 and 33 points in his last four games. Damn it.
He was asked to step in with the Memphis Grizzlies that some guys miss, and that’s exactly what he did, amassing a 34.0% use rate in those last four games.
It’s hard to bet against him right now, but he can’t stay this hot.
In those last four contests, Morant is shooting 57.6% overall and hitting 73.7% of his three. For the year, he gained 49.2% in the field, including 40.4% in depth. Dude has to slow down at some point, and it can happen tonight against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Cleveland – though not at full power at the moment – is allowing playmakers just 23.1 points per game, who are tied for fourth, and they’re playing at ninth slowest pace of the league.
Our model predicts Morant will produce 26.1 points, which is exactly that line, but I like to side with the bottom.
Keldon Johnson Under 15.5 points (-106)
San Antonio Spurs are missing a few parts today, but the key is Dejounte Murray.
With Murray off the field this season, Keldon Johnson doesn’t see too much momentum, posting a 22.2% use rate, which is an increase of just 1.6 percentage points, per RotoGrinders CourtIQ.
On top of that, the Toronto Raptors (seventh slower) are a huge home base for the Spurs (fourth fastest).
Johnson has scored 12, 6, and 13 points in his last three games, and our algorithm projects him for 15.2 in this one.
