Donovan Mitchell (Cleveland Cavaliers)
- • Over 26.5 Points Scored
The Washington Wizards are coming off a 117-97 victory over the Detroit Pistons. Bradley Beal scored 36 points in the win and went 13-15 from the field. The Wizards are going to need another big game from Beal tonight to try to keep pace with the high-powered Cleveland Cavaliers.
Washington has already beaten Cleveland twice this season. The Wizards defeated the Cavaliers 117-107 overtime on October 23rd and followed that up with a 114-91 victory on February 6th.
The Cavaliers will be looking to get their first win of the season over the Wizards and also trying to bounce back from a 118-109 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday. In that game, Donovan Mitchell had 21 points but they are going to need more from Mitchell tonight.
Donovan Mitchell has played spectacularly this year and the Cavaliers are going to need him to make this final playoff push. Mitchell averages 27.5 points per game this season. He has gone over 40 points in two of his last five games. I expect to see an active Mitchell tonight as he goes over his point prop total.

Anthony Davis (Los Angeles Lakers)
- Over 13.5 Rebounds
The Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers will play in an important game tonight. The last time these two teams faced off the game featured a dramatic comeback. The Lakers overcame a 27-point deficit to win 111-108.
The Lakers are currently 34-36 while the Mavericks are 35-35. Tonight’s game marks an important opportunity for the Lakers to catch Dallas in the standings and win a crucial game for the tiebreaker if they end the season tied.
Anthony Davis has taken up the slack for the Los Angeles Lakers with LeBron James out of the lineup. Davis has been a monster. In his most recent outing, he scored 35 points and had 17 rebounds against the New Orleans Pelicans.
Davis has had more than 16 rebounds in three of his last four games, including a 22-rebound outing against the Memphis Grizzlies. Davis knows they need him without LeBron in the lineup and he has come through with excellent play.

Clint Capela (Atlanta Hawks)
The Golden State Warriors have been one of the worst teams on the road this season. The Warriors lost their most recent game in Los Angeles against the Clippers. Even with 50 points from Steph Curry, it was not enough and the Warriors fell 134-126. Now the Warriors travel cross country to take on the Atlanta Hawks.
The Warriors and the Hawks have played once this season. The final score was 143-141 in favor of the Warriors in a double overtime shootout. We are in for another high-paced, high-scoring game tonight.
Clint Capela leads the Atlanta Hawks in rebounding. Capela averages 11.1 rebounds per game. He has recorded a double-double in five of his last eight games.
Capela has been getting plenty of run under new coach Quin Snyder, who likes having one big on the floor. This means more rebounding opportunities for Capela because he is often playing with smaller teammates in Snyder’s system.
A high pace means plenty of shots and plenty of opportunities for rebounds. Capela recorded a double-double in his last game in just 22 minutes. He has an opportunity to put up another great performance this evening.
