Slate Summary

It’s Official! The 2022 NBA Play-In Tournament is finally here with 2 games today. We have CLE vs BKN for the first game then LAC vs MIN at night. The player I am looking to lock is Caris LeVert. Not only does he provide tremendous value, he is up against his former team who traded him away. After LeVert, KAT and Reggie Jackson are great options today in cash and GPP contests. All three players will be chalk and they rank as our top 3, point per dollar plays. As for spend ups, I think KD has a monster game here. Although he is priced up at 11.4k and has a superstar teammate in Kyrie, I can’t see the Cavaliers slowing him down. Evan Mobley should be on him but it’s a lot for from a rookie. As for my other spend up, you can play both KD and PG13 unless news breaks.
