We are back with another edition of Livi Locks. We have been killing it with our picks and want to continue to roll. The way Livi Locks works is, I will give my favorite guard, forward, and center position of the night. We got a lot of fun games, coming up tonight so let’s get right to it.
Tyler Herro – Miami Heat at Houston Rockets
He is one of the top plays tonight for many reasons. Herro has scored over 22 fantasy points in each of his last 10 games and even has some 45 point fantasy performances. Herro is a very important part of the Heat offense, and the offense should continue to run right through Herro and Jimmy Butler. On the year, Herro is averaging a very modest 17 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game. Combine those against a 20th ranked Rockets defense, and you have a pretty good play tonight. Let’s LOCK in Herro.
Juan Toscano-Anderson – Orlando Magic at Golden State Warriors
WHO? JTA has been one of the hottest commodities over the last week weeks. Over his last five games, his minutes have skyrocketed, and his production has steadily improved. Nearly averaging a double-double in his last five games, JTA should keep the good times rolling. His yearly numbers don’t do justice to how he’s been playing the last five games, but a juicy matchup against a 13th ranked Warriors team and nearly averaging 10 points and 10 rebounds last five games, that’s a very juicy pick.
Kelly Olynyk – Miami Heat at Houston Rockets
Olynyk has steadily been producing excellent numbers lately and it’s time we add him to Livi Locks. Playing heavy minutes, his numbers have clearly gone up. Most notably shredding the New York Knicks with 20 points, three rebounds, and one block a few nights ago. Olynyk is averaging 10.6 points and 5.5 rebounds a game this year, but with a matchup against P.J. Tucker and the Rockets, well, let’s just leave it at that. Olynyk has a killer matchup tonight, so let’s LOCK him in.
That does it for this edition of Livi Locks. Best of luck!
