He made 12 of 13 shots en route to 24 points, 20 rebounds, three steals and two blocks in 36 minutes. Whiteside has battled foul trouble during his stint with the Heat, but has only had three fouls in each of his last four games.

He has averaged Jamal Crawford , Clippers at Cavaliers , 8: Redick expected to miss another game because of an injured back, Crawford should see extended minutes against the Cavaliers. He has beaten his projection in three of his last five games while averaging Crawford is a volume shooter who benefits from field goal percentage not being included in Basketball Throwdown.

He has shot just LeBron James , Cavaliers vs. James is always a good option and a matchup with the Clippers should allow him to have a big night on Thursday. The Clippers have no chance of matching up with James on the perimeter.
