Welcome to the 11th edition of GPP Leverage for the 2020-2021 NBA season. This article is going to be a catch-all space for my GPP thoughts. In most of the articles, I’ll address some of the relevant GPP plays for that day’s slate, but some of the articles will be more focused on plays and others more focused on strategy. In today’s edition of Leverage, we’re going to revert back to micro strategy with an emphasis on tonight’s four-game slate.
The four-game slate provides is one that I’m fairly confident news will impact heavily and when that news comes will ultimately dictate the edge on this slate. The news is going to come from the Clippers who are on the back-end of a back-to-back and in the midst of a schedule that is very heavy on Western Conference playoff contenders. If we look at the Clippers’ schedule, this game against the Magic really stands out.
