Ricky Rubio (MIN) – Rubio’s price is starting to adjust more rapidly but favorable matchups keep piling up. Portland’s defense is one that drives a lot of opportunity for point guards in the pick-and-roll. They allow four percentage points above the league average in play types for the pick-and-roll ball handler. Although Rubio isn’t as efficient in this play type, it should create volume for him. Minnesota is also one of just four teams that are not playing on a back-to-back tonight. Rubio is the player we expect to lead point guards in scoring on Saturday and he’s also priced reasonably.
