Dillon Brooks (MEM) Over 21.5 Points

Matchup: Memphis at Indiana (NBA League Pass, 7:00 p.m. ET) 

While I do like his regular points total, I think Brooks possesses some very valuable upside tonight without Ja Morant in the lineup. Brooks is one of my favorite guys to bet on for one simple reason, when he gets the ball, he shoots it. Doesn't matter if he’s playing with Ja Morant, Drew Eubanks, or Michaell Jordan, if there's an opportunity he's gonna take advantage of it. 

So far this year without Ja Morant, he's averaging 19 points per game, going over this 22 number in 5 of 9 games playing at least 25 minutes. The volume should be there, and playing a Pacers team that hasn't been able to defend anyone recently, I'm expecting sparks to fly. With a 234 game total, and a fast pace of play, this game sets up very well for a Dillon Brooks performance.

Tyson Jones (MEM) Over 6.5 Assists

Matchup: Memphis at Indiana (NBA League Pass, 7:00 p.m. ET) 

I also played his 8+ assists at +182 and Double Double +579. Jones is argubally the biggest beneficiary when Morant is out of the lineup. The pass-first guard takes over most of the primary ball handling responsibilities, and should be in-store of a break matchup. He has 7+ assists in 5 of his last 6 matchups without Morant in the lineup, and has clearly flashed skills as a playmaker. One of Indiana’s biggest weakness without Sabonis or Turner is there interior paint presence, Jones should be able to create easy assists opportunities in the paint. 

Markelle Fultz (ORL) Over 3.5 Assists + Steals

Matchup: Brooklyn at Orlando (NBA League Pass, 7:00 p.m. ET) 

Since coming back from Injury, Fultz has quietly been very good. Hes hit this 4+ steals in 4 of 6 games since coming back, averaging 5.5. With Suggs out of the lineup, it's very likely we see his minutes increase from around 18 to possibly the 25 mark. With RJ Hampton entering the starting lineup, that's one less guard we have to worry about sharing ball handling responsibilities with. He has a steal in 4 of 6 games, including 3 straight leading into this game. With more minutes, comes more opportunities for steals against a turnover prone Nets team.
