Monday, March 20th

Philadelphia/Orlando – 211.5, ORL -5

Both teams should be trying to lose for seeding purposes. Beware of late scratches. Philly 1.5 games ahead of Orl in standings. Pace should be above avg.


Jahlil Okafor – If he starts and is going to get mins, has a nice matchup vs Vuc. Always unowned. Has flashed big upside if he’s going to get the minutes.
