Kyrie’s recent stats
Kyrie Irving is an American professional basketball player for the Brooklyn Nets of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA draft. Irving played college basketball for Duke before joining the Cavaliers in 2011.
In his first season, Irving was named Rookie of the Year after averaging 18.5 points, 5.4 assists, and 3.7 rebounds per game. He played a pivotal role in leading the Cavaliers to their first NBA Finals appearance since 2007 and won his first NBA championship with the team in 2016.
Kyrie’s recent stats:
-28.5 points per game
-5.4 assists per game
-3.7 rebounds per game
Kemba Walker is one of the most consistent scorers in the NBA and will be a great addition to any fantasy team. He’s averaging 22.1 points, 4.4 assists, and 1.2 steals per game, and is shooting nearly 40% from three-point range. Walker is also averaging career-highs in field goal percentage (47.8%) and free throw percentage (85.7%).
Reasons for starting Kemba
Kemba Walker is an obvious choice to start in your NBA fantasy league tonight. Here are three reasons why:
1. He’s coming off a career-high performance.
In his last game, Kemba Walker scored a career-high 52 points against the Charlotte Hornets. He also added six assists and five rebounds in that game. Obviously, he’s feeling confident and playing at the top of his game right now.
2. The Charlotte Hornets are struggling.
The Charlotte Hornets are currently the ninth seed in the Eastern Conference with a record of 18-21. They’re struggling, and they need Kemba Walker to step up if they want to make the playoffs.
3. The opposing team is weak.
Tonight, the Charlotte Hornets are playing the New York Knicks, who are the worst team in the NBA with a record of 10-29. The Knicks are also missing their best player, Kristaps Porzingis, due to injury. This should be an easy win for the Hornets, and Kemba Walker should have no trouble putting up big numbers against the weak Knicks defense.
Kemba’s recent stats
In his last 5 games, Kemba Walker is averaging 25.4 points, 3.6 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.4 steals and 4.0 3-pointes per game while shooting 47.5 percent from the field and 43.8 percent from three-point range.
Beal has been on an absolute tear lately. Over his last five games, Beal is averaging 33.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.2 assists, and 2.4 steals. He’s also shooting an absurd 53.1 percent from the field and 46.2 percent from three. He’s been the highest scoring player in the league over that stretch and is currently the leading scorer in the NBA.
Reasons for starting Bradley
Reasons for starting Bradley Beal in your NBA fantasy league tonight include his recent career-high scoring performance, his favorable matchup against the Cleveland Cavaliers, and the fact that he is playing at home. Beal scored 40 points in his last game, and he is averaging 27.3 points per game this season. The Cavaliers rank 28th in the NBA in points allowed per game, and they are coming off a loss in which they allowed 132 points. Beal is also shooting 50% from three-point range this season.
Bradley’s recent stats
Bradley Beal recently scored 37 points against Portland, 31 points against Sacramento, and 34 points against Minnesota. He is averaging 30.5 points per game over his last 10 games, and is shooting 50% from the field and 45.5% from three-point range over that span. In his last 5 games, Beal is averaging 33.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 4.2 assists, and 1.4 steals per game while shooting 52% from the field and 47.5% from three-point range.
If you are looking for alternatives to the big names in tonight’s NBA games, here are some other options to consider for your fantasy league.
Reasons for not starting Kyrie, Kemba, or Bradley
The following three players have been ruled out for tonight’s games: Kyrie Irving (shoulder), Kemba Walker (knee), and Avery Bradley (groin). While this may seem like a clear opportunity to start their replacements, there are a few reasons why you may want to think twice before putting them in your lineup.
First, all three players are replaced by starters who have been playing well lately. Kyrie’s replacement, Marcus Smart, is coming off a 24-point performance against the 76ers; Kemba’s replacement, Terry Rozier, had 21 points and 7 assists against the Magic; and Bradley’s replacement, Jaylen Brown, scored 20 points against the Hornets.
Second, all three players are facing tough matchups tonight. Smart is up against the league-best Raptors; Rozier is up against the tough defensive duo of Jrue Holiday and E’Twaun Moore; and Brown is up against the red-hot Jazz.
Finally, all three players could see reduced minutes as their replacements get up to speed. Smart and Rozier are both coming off long absences, and Brown is being asked to play out of position at small forward.
Ultimately, it’s up to you whether you want to take the risk on these three players. If you need some help making a decision, be sure to check out our daily fantasy basketball lineups for tonight’s games.
Other player’s stats
Most roasters have specialized names for their favored roasts and there is very little industry standardization. This can cause some confusion when you’re buying, but in general, roasts fall into one of four color categories — light, medium, medium-dark and dark.
Many consumers assume that the strong, rich flavor of darker roasts indicates a higher level of caffeine, but the truth is that light roasts actually have a slightly higher concentration. The perfect roast is a personal choice that is sometimes influenced by national preference or geographic location. Within the four color categories, you are likely to find common roasts as listed below. It’s a good idea to ask before you buy. There can be a world of difference between roasts.
Light brown in color, this roast is generally preferred for milder coffee varieties. There will be no oil on the surface of these beans because they are not roasted long enough for the oils to break through to the surface.
This roast is medium brown in color with a stronger flavor and a non-oily surface. It’s often referred to as the American roast because it is generally preferred in the United States.
