Fantasy Basketball Playoffs: Chris Paul Will Have 70 Points, 45 Assists in First Round
With the fantasy playoffs tipping off, though, what can we expect from Paul in the playoffs this year?
Here is a look at the team’s four-game road-trip this week:
3/26/2013 – Los Angeles Clippers @ Dallas Mavericks
3/27/2013 – Los Angeles Clippers @ New Orleans Hornets
3/29/2013 – Los Angeles Clippers @ San Antonio Spurs
3/30/2013 – Los Angeles Clippers @ Houston Rockets
Now let’s breakdown each of his matchups this week.
Firstly, Paul has owned Dallas this season. He has scored 33 points and dished out 29 assists in his two games against the Mavericks this year. Dallas has lacked a quality point guard all year and Paul has made them pay for it every meeting. This looks like an easy double-double for Paul.
Next is the Hornets. Paul racked up 30 points, 20 assists, and nine rebounds in the two games against his former team this year. However, this is the first time he will be playing in New Orleans since last February, so it will be an extra special homecoming for CP3.
San Antonio PG Tony Parker is just coming back from an ankle injury, so it will be interesting to see how he handles Paul’s speed. Expect Paul to get the better of him this time around, though, and easily post 15 points with 10 dimes.
The only truly difficult matchup for Paul would be Houston’s Jeremy Lin. Houston has a very strong backcourt and it could frustrate CP3 a little. Of all the games this week, this would be the one that I would predict Paul to record under 10 assists.
Paul is about to explode on opposing fantasy owners, so count yourself lucky if you have CP3 at the top of your lineup. Expect him to easily go over 70 points and 45 assists in the first round of the fantasy basketball playoffs.
