Brooklyn vs Player Special by Marci

Twelve games today and many many good options for player specials and it will be very tough to choose correct ones so I am starting with safest bet in my opinion and that is D´Angelo Russell to score 20+ points. 2nd pick of 2015. is averaging 21,7 points per game and is taking 16.8 shots per game with 46,5% shooting percentage and is one of key players in Brooklyn. He went only 3 times in 7 games over 20 points (mostly because all those games in which he didnt score over 20 were blowouts so he played less minutes) and all were in high scoring games with no defenses and that kind of game we can expect and today with Brooklyn being worst in defending with 118,8 points per game and Lakes 19th with 107,4.
Biggest reason why I am choosing Russell is that he was drafted by Lakers and was forced out from club this summer by new management (Magic Johnson) who stated that he is not good enough to be leader of new Lakers generation so we can for sure expect Russell to be extra motivated today and to show Magic that he was wrong. Lakers are 26th in defending backourt with almost 50 points per game and with LeVert and Dinwiddle not being real threats Russell will have more than few chances against Ball and KCP to score.
P.S: BO really is not an option and 220+ point game is expected so both Ingram and Lopez are expected to go over their margins for Lakers. Nance is out so Ingram will get few more shots and Lopez played for many seasons in Nets before being traded here so he can use it as both experience and motivation.
