Underdog Fantasy NBA Daily Pick ‘Em Plays – December 31
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander – Higher than 33.5 Points
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is on a heater, and when SGA is on a heater you ride it. He’s scored at least 34 points in four straight games, including 40 against the defending NBA champion Denver Nuggets in his last game. And tomorrow’s opponent, Brooklyn, has one of the worst-rated defenses in the NBA. Let’s keep the good times rolling.
Mikal Bridges – Lower than 22.5 Points
Supposedly #1 on Brooklyn’s depth chart, Mikal Bridges is scoring five points less per game this season than last and is taking two fewer shots per game than teammate Cam Thomas. Bridges is only averaging 21.1 ppg this season, is at 20.1 ppg for December, and has only topped this 22.5-point projection once in his last 12 games. Plus, he’s playing in Oklahoma City tomorrow night and they have an elite defense. Lower than 22.5 points is surely the play here.
Paolo Banchero – Higher than 23.5 Points
It looked like the sophomore slump had gotten Paolo Banchero at the beginning of this season, but the second-year pro has since squashed that notion and is playing top-notch ball. He’s scored at least 24 points in three of his last four games, and is averaging 24.8 points in December. Going up against Phoenix tomorrow and their porous defense, I like his chances to get us at least 24.
