Pick #3: Josh Giddey Assists Over 5.5 (-120 DK)

Like this spot for Giddey to dish out some nice looks after having a rough dime game vs the Cavaliers. I understand that Giddey is a Shooting Guard, a position that GSW does not allow much assists too, but he is more of a point guard, as he usually opts to pass rather than shoot (Averaging around that 14 attempts per game range, but its situational). He also takes that PG role more because he usually only plays about half the first quarter, which Shai then finishes out, with Giddey coming in to run the point in the second quarter until about halfway. With that in mind and GSW allowing a league high of assists to point guards, I think Giddey should get this line easily. The Pine bot also has him projected a whole point above his line, so I like it even more. In his 3 career games vs GSW, Giddey has hit this line in 2/3, being on a streak of 2. In his last 10 matches, he's over in 6. His last 4 he has struggled a bit due to Shai taking the lion's share of assists, but there is a reason Shai's line is also only 5.5, the books don't expect him to keep dropping 8-9 assists per game. Frankly, neither do I.
