We have a huge 13 game slate of NBA action tonight. With numerous teams favored by 10 or more points tonight including the Cavaliers, Spurs, Bucks, Warriors and Thunder, many of the superstars, LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Kawhi Leonard, Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant are not on the consensus list likely due to fear of limited minutes in a blowout.

The numbers in the parenthesis are the number of experts that picked that player to give you more context as to the gaps between players and the tiers. Here are the Industry Consensus picks for tonight…

Highly Touted

  • Tim Frazier (8) – Played 48 minutes on Monday with both Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum out. Sounds like McCollum will be back tonight so temper expectations for Frazier and consider McCollum
  • Paul George (8) – Only scored seven points against the Spurs on Monday, but should bounce back tonight against the Kings
  • Will Barton (7) – Averaging 28.5 points and 9.0 rebounds over his last two games

Recommended
