Stephen Curry (GS) – Another Warriors home game and another double digit spread that brings blowout risk. The Warriors are favored by 11 against the Wizards who are playing on a back-to-back after an embarrassing loss to the Kings last night. Curry’s price point has once again come down on a home stand, partly due to the Warriors success and partly due to a shooting slump. The price discount helps mitigate the risk of a blowout as Curry can approach value in his traditional 30-33 minutes role. This is important with the Warriors on the front end of a back-to-back and in the midst of a four games in five night span. Its unlikely Curry plays heavy minutes tonight, but at the current price point he can approach value thresholds in 30-32 minutes.
Kemba Walker (CHA) – The Bulls are tumbling down the defensive efficiency ranks in the absence of Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler. They’ve fallen to 26th in defensive efficiency against point guards on the season and 30th over their last 10 games. Walker was bumped to 34 minutes last night and the Hornets are in a playoff charge (half game lead on the eighth spot). The concern with Walker is playing his third game in four nights and he hasn’t shot particularly well in his return from injury. However, some of those risks are mitigated by the discounted price tag. With a lack of standout options at the point guard position, Walker emerges as a fine play on Monday’s slate.
