It’s a three-game Tuesday so we’re going bargain-hunting again. Here are 5 of the best bargain options for April 16, 2019:
1.) Danny Green, SG, Toronto Raptors
The Raptors could not afford to lose this one so they are going to go all-out and perhaps shorten their rotation.
Green played 33 minutes in Game 1 and had 13 points and three rebounds but he will have to do more than that to secure a win. As a grizzled playoff vet, I don’t have any doubts that DG will be at his best in Game 2.
2.) D.J. Augustin, PG, Orlando Magic
D.J. will be a marked man in Game 2 but like what I have been saying all season long, his minutes are not really in trouble, even with Jerian Grant and Michael Carter-Williams around.
We know he scored 25 points and handed out six dimes in Game 1 but he has really played well the last four games now. If you want to throw a curve ball, you can also play MCW, which should hover at around the minimum.
3.) Will Barton, SF, Denver Nuggets
Barton was one of the Nuggets who had a solid Game 1 while Paul Millsap basically disappeared. He is now averaging 12.5 points and 9.5 rebounds the past two games and is off to a good start in the playoffs.
4.) Derrick White, PG, San Antonio Spurs
Gregg Popovich called him “phenomenal” with his stellar Game 1 play so we better pay attention.

5.) Al-Farouq Aminu, PF, Portland Trail Blazers
The Blazers need all frontcourt help they can get which makes Aminu very critical in their success. He had a solid game in Game 1– 10 points seven rebounds, and three blocks– and he will have to do more of the same the whole series for Portland to wrap it up.
