High Salary PG

Chris Paul, HOU at DET ($10,100): Paul has missed value in two straight, failing to capitalize on the lack of James Harden. He’s struggled with his shot in recent weeks, but that’s unlikely to continue based on his career numbers. The Pistons are on a back-to-back and looked all out of sorts on Friday. If they continue to struggle defensively, they will get lit up by the Rockets offense. Paul should get plenty of assists and points in this one. ****

Kyrie Irving, BOS at BKN ($8,700): Irving has been over 40 fantasy points in two of his last three. That includes 45.6 fantasy points against the Nets less than a week ago. This is a great matchup for Irving as the Nets are 29th against the position in their last 15 games. Irving’s scoring numbers have been down, but his rebounding numbers are way up and he’s been more of a playmaker in his last two contests. He should have another 40 fantasy point game on Saturday. *****

Kris Dunn, CHI at IND ($7,700): Dunn had a season high 55.9 fantasy points against the Mavericks on Friday. He’s averaging 34.8 fantasy points in two games against the Pacers this season. That number would put him just over value in this one. If Victor Oladipo is unable to play, there’s no reason to not take advantage of this Pacers matchup. They’ve been below average defensively all season, but it’s really fallen off without Oladipo. Even if Oladipo plays, Dunn should be at value. ****
