We are back with another edition of Livi’s Locks. There is a loaded night of NBA action, and with the playoffs approaching fast and furious, every player is playing with with some extra fight in them. Games begin tonight at 7 p.m. EDT.
Below, I will give you my favorite three plays of the night on players that should help you double your investment. Let’s get to it and make some money.
Stephen Curry – Golden State Warriors vs. Oklahoma City Thunder
There is positively no one hotter than Curry right now. He is on an absolute tear, putting up eye-opening performances one night after another. On the season, Curry is averaging a whopping 31.5 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 5.7 assists per game. He has also scored over 55 fantasy points in four of his last five games. Add that on top of a 23rd-ranked Thunder team, and Curry could crack 60 fantasy points!

Oshae Brissett: Toronto Raptors vs. Atlanta Hawks
We splurged at the Guard position in taking Curry, so let’s take someone who is not as pricy. Brissett has been getting it done the past few games, scoring over 35 fantasy points in four of his last five games. He is playing all the minutes he can handle and producing very solid numbers. The Hawks don’t give up that many points to opposing forwards. However, with the boatload of minutes Brissett gets, he should be able to finish with a nice stat line tonight. Locking him in.
P.J. Washington: Charlotte Hornets vs. Chicago Bulls
One of my favorite plays of the night goes to Washington. He is playing at such a high level and the addition of LaMelo Ball back into the starting lineup only helps him. On the year, Washington is averaging 12.8 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 2.5 assists and is coming off a 35 point fantasy performance. He is a lock and no matchup should scare you away. Let’s ride him to victory tonight.
That does it for Livi’s Locks. Hope you guys enjoy and good luck with your lineups!
