- •Anthony Davis, NO at MILDavis eviscerated the Bucks for a whopping 69.75 fantasy points on Nov. 1 and has gone for 53.25 and 56 fantasy points, respectively, over his last two games. The Bucks also figure to throw out Jabari Parker as Davis’ main roadblock Thursday, who he owns a three-inch height advantage over, an edge he was certainly able to exploit the last time out.
- •Danilo Gallinari, DEN v GSGallinari makes for an interesting contrarian play at small forward for tournaments against the Warriors, who have not played particularly effective defense and are on the second game of a road back-to-back. Golden State has given up a healthy 21.3 points per game to small forwards, and Gallinari is coming off his best game of the season, having amassed 41.25 fantasy points against the Grizzlies on Tuesday.
- •Kenneth Faried, DEN v GSFaried makes for an excellent cost-conscious play in the same Nuggets-Warriors tilt, considering Golden State has been one of the most porous defenses against power forwards. The Warriors have surrendered the third-most fantasy points (53.5), second-most points (24.5), most rebounds (13.6) and highest field-goal percentage (50.8) to the position, while Faried has totaled 31.75 and 22.25 fantasy points in his last two games and has hauled in 11 boards in each contest.
