Grant Williams was nearly perfect on Tuesday night

With just two games for Tuesday’s opening night pickings for the Pickup of the Night will be slim. But there were a few names that stand out after the big night.

Grant Williams – BOS – The forward was perfect on Tuesday, hitting 5-of-5 shots and 3-of-3 3-pointers for 15 points, one rebound and one assist in 24 minutes. He’s going to be one of the leaders in minutes off the C’s bench and is worth a look in deeper leagues as well as DFS.

Al Horford – BOS – Horford was bad last night, hitting 2-of-7 shots for six points, five rebounds and two 3-pointers while dealing with foul trouble. He might have gone undrafted in your league or he might get cut after tonight’s dud. But with the Time Lord (Robert Williams) expected to miss half the season with his knee injury Horford is going to have a good season. Noah Vonleh played 20 minutes, his most since 2018, but didn’t do much, meaning Horford is one of the only big-man hopes in Boston. Make sure he’s not on your waiver wire, despite the dud.

Lonnie Walker IV – LAL – Walker played 29 minutes and hit 2-of-7 shots for five points, three rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block, while missing all three of is 3-pointers in a Lakers loss. The 29 minutes were significant and if he continues to get that kind of run he might be worth a look on your waiver wire. Let’s see what he does on Thursday against the Clippers.[[ad:athena]]

Kendrick Nunn – LAL – Nunn came off the bench to hit 5-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for 13 points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 23 minutes on Wednesday. If he ends up starting over Russell Westbrook he might be worth grabbing after missing last season. Just keep an eye on him.
