Just three days of Preseason NBA left and only two real slates, so lets make the most of it! Tonight we have a five game slate on tap and while there’s a bit of a lack of news as of this writing, we can expect some to open up as the day moves along (AKA the second I click publish). As always, Chat at 5 PM to recap news and answer questions.
With that, let’s discuss the slate!
BOS @ CHA
Celtics: Aron Baynes, Daniel Theis (OUT)
Hornets: Michael Carter-Williams, Nicolas Batum, Jeremy Lamb, Michael-Kidd Gilchrist (OUT). Julyan Stone, Marcus Paige, TJ Graham (Questionable)
Players to Target
Celtics: Al Horford, Gordon Hayward
Hornets: Malik Monk, Kemba Walker, Cody Zeller, Dwayne Bacon
The Hornets are quite banged up, as they’ll be without not only Batum, but his replacement Jeremy Lamb, and MKG will remain sidelined as well. This moves Dwayne Bacon into the starting lineup, likely to keep Malik Monk with the second unit, a place he’ll spend much of his season. I don’t hate Bacon for minimum salary even with the starters, as the pace should be up and give him some opportunities to get to 4x. My preference is for Malik Monk, the second unit guard who will draw a more favorable matchup, and usage projection. He’s not expensive at all and since Lamb moved into the starting lineup (or now sits), Monk has maintained the majority usage share, and saw 35 minutes last game. He’s a must own tonight. Both Celtics regulars above have the two best matchups of the starting unit, although Kyrie is a close third (I simply prefer other PG’s). Horford owned Dwight last time out in the preseason opener. More minutes should only help him this evening, and he has looked to be a larger part of this offense without Isaiah Thomas running the point.
