1.3.21 Hoop Tales: What Can (Jaylen) Brown Do For You Edition

Saturday: 1-1 (-0.06 units)

Season: 8-15 (-8.24 units)

Recap: Richaun Holmes made us sweat to get to 9 rebs, but missed a couple of acrobatic layups late in the fourth quarter, so we missed that over by the hook.

First pick: Jaylen Brown O22.5 pts vs DET (-110)winner

Fact #1: He has totaled 23+ points in four of six games, including 25 on New Year’s Day against these same Pistons.

Fact #2: Detroit allows 25.4 points per game to the 2-guard position, which I would expect Brown to occupy again if Teague comes off the bench rather than starting.

Second pick: Joe Harris O12.5 pts vs WAS (-120)

Fact #1: Harris has 13+ pts in three of his last four

Fact #2: The Wizards give up an average of 26.2 points to the 2-guard position this season

Fact #3: Assuming Russ takes Kyrie, that potential means Harris gets to run Beal around screens all night. We like!

Third pick: Kevin Durant O27.5 pts vs WAS (-120)

Fact #1: Durant has 28+ points four of his five games this season, so I’m going to keep playing this until it doesn’t hit.
