As we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the NBA offers up a bunch of games at a variety of times throughout the day and night. My NBA Hot Sheet article will focus on just the four-game evening slate that begins at 6PM (Eastern). There are two potential shootouts on the night slate with the Rockets/Sixers and Warriors/Lakers matchups coming in with Vegas totals around 234 points. Also, be sure to keep an eye on the injury news in Philly leading up to tipoff with Joel Embiid and Jimmy Butler both questionable.
The grid below is a snapshot of today’s slate that shows the overall rating for each position for each team. The numbers highlighted in red are in the top 25% of their position for the slate and indicate good plays. Meanwhile, the numbers highlighted in blue are the positions that are in the bottom 25% of their respective position for the slate and are positions to avoid.
