NBA Sleeper Top Picks & Plays

Julius Randle, New York Knicks

The Knicks and Raptors face off here on Friday with the Knicks coming off of a win against the Pistons. Randle has been a force this season, averaging 20.4 points, 5.3 assists and 10.2 rebounds per game. Over the last 10 games he's been far more dominant, averaging 23.6 points, 5.7 assists and 9.4 rebounds per game. The points and assists are what we are focusing in on here today as Sleeper HQ has his projection listed at just 25.5 combined points and assists here this evening. Over the last 10 games he has finished higher than that projected eight times while averaging 29.3 points and assists over that stretch. He's also face the Raptors three times this season. If you want to go back to some historical data, the Knicks faced the Raptors four times last season and Randle finished with more than 25.5 points and assists in all four of those contests as well, averaging 32.3 points and assists per game.

Pick: More than 25.5 Points + Assists (1.7x)

Nikola Jokic, Denver Nuggets

We had a big let down the last time we went to Jokic with a first quarter projection when we took his over 3.5 rebounds and he managed to pull down only one board in the first quarter and then went on to finish with 15 rebounds. Today we go after his first quarter assist projection. Over the last 10 games we've seen Jokic finish with greater than 2.5 first quarter assists in eight of 10 games which includes eight of the last nine. He faces the Suns here this evening and the Nuggets could have their complete starting five back together for the first time in a while with Jamal Murray and Aaron Gordon possibly in the lineup for Joker to dish out assists to this evening.

Pick: More than 2.5 1Q Assists (1.67x)
