Happy Saturday everyone! We hit the nuts yesterday except for the fact that Ricky Rubio left early in the second half amidst a solid performance. Hopefully everyone in this article makes it through their respective games tonight so we can win the big buckies! Without further ado, let’s get to work…

With Larry Nance Jr. shipped out of town, Julius Randle’s minutes, which were already on the rise, are no longer in question whatsoever. Since the frontcourt rotation has been thinned out, Randle is now a lock to start and flirt with 30 minutes in competitive games…and tonight’s game opened with a spread of just 1.5-points. Thus far, the Mavericks rank dead last in the NBA in rebounding rate, and starting center Brook Lopez is not much of a rebounder. Essentially, Randle and Josh Hart, the team’s two best active rebounders, should gobble up the boards tonight without much resistance. Heading into tonight, Randle has topped 31 fantasy points in five of his last six games and eight of his last 10. During that stretch Randle has managed at least 35 fantasy points six times and has registered four double-doubles. In a matchup versus the worst rebounding team, Randle should cruise to double-digit rebounds with relative ease, so another double-double should be on the horizon.
