We are back with another edition of Livi Locks. We have a loaded night of basketball beginning at 8 PM, EST with six games tonight. As usual, Livi Locks will give you three top plays at the guard, forward, and center positions. Our goal is to help find all those sneaky plays that will perform admirably and help you win some money. So, with plenty of players tonight to choose from, let’s get to it.
Gary Trent Jr. – Portland Trail Blazers at Phoenix Suns
Trent is coming off a splendid game where he scored 23 points. Trent has put up over 20 fantasy points in his last 10 consecutive games. He is averaging 15.4 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and .7 steals per game. Trent gets the pick here tonight because the Suns give up the 15th most points to opposing guards, and he is in a prime spot to continue his nice stretch.
Derrick Jones Jr. – Portland Trail Blazers at Phoenix Suns
Let’s continue picking on the Suns here. DJJ is on a hot streak scoring over 25 fantasy points in his last three games. DJJ is averaging 7.8 points, 4.9 rebounds, and .08 assists per game. However, over his last three games, he is averaging 12 points eight rebounds, which is good for over 25 fantasy points. Let’s ride him while he is hot, and lock him in.
Rudy Gobert – Utah Jazz vs Charlotte Hornets
Gobert is on a nice little streak. He has put up over 30 fantasy points in his last nine consecutive games, most notably his 55 point fantasy performance where he scored 23 points 20 rebounds. Tonight, Gobert gets a matchup against a 20th ranked Hornets defense so we know Gobert is going to feast. On the year, Gobert is averaging 14 points, 13.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 2.7 blocks per game. Gobert is averaging a monster 39.2 fantasy points per game this year, and that streak will certainly continue tonight.
That does it for this edition of Livi Locks. Best of luck!
