RUN WITH THE BULLS ON A LIGHT NIGHT THURSDAY
The schedule is short and sweet in the National Basketball Assocation for Thursday, Oct. 31, which is usually the case on Thursday. The New York-Chicago (8:00pm ET) and Golden State-L.A. Clippers (10:30pm ET) games are nationally televised on TNT.

THESE SIX WILL CLICK
Toney Douglas, G, Golden State ($6115 at LAC): Douglas came off the bench in Wednesday's victory against the Lakers, playing 24 minutes. He hit five of his eight field goal attempts for 13 points, and he snared four rebounds to go along with four assists. He should be a nice value again in this one.
Taj Gibson, F, Chicago ($9200 vs NYK): Scouring the bargain bin, you might want to take a good long look at Gibson. He posted 10 points with eight rebounds and three assists in 29 minutes in Miami Tuesday. He should be good for a near double-double performance again.
Joakim Noah, C, Chicago ($15595 vs NYK): Noah (groin) was bothered by a sore groin down the stretch of the preseason, and didn't appear terribly comfortable in Miami Tuesday. He hit just one of his four field goal attempts for two points. However, he was able to grab 11 rebounds, while posting two assists, two steals and and two blocked shots. He should step up the offensive production against the Knicks, and if he repeats his performance on the defensive end, he'll be well worth the money.
Pablo Prigioni, G, New York ($5570 at CHI): Prigioni drew the start in Wednesday's opener against the Milwaukee Bucks, and he went for seven points with three boards, five assists and three steals in 37 minutes. While it wasn't a giant performance, he did produce well given his low, low salary. He should be a nice value again in this one.
Iman Shumpert, G, New York ($8150 at CHI): Shumpert bagged 16 points on 5-of-13 shooting in Wednesday's opener against the Bucks, likely making some bucks for his daily Fantasy owners. He also snagged four rebounds, and had an assist and blocked shot with just one turnover. Not a bad night of production at a mid-level salary.
Klay Thompson, G, Golden State ($11330 at LAC): Thompson caught fire in the opener, dropping a game-high 38 points in 31 minutes, including five 3-pointers. It is unrealistic to expect this type of performance on a regular basis, but a solid long-distance shooter in a night with just two games on the schedule makes him worth a look.
DeAndre Jordan, C, L.A. Clippers ($12820 vs GS): After a giant opening stat line against the Lakers, Jordan's salary has jumped. He is no longer a surprise, and at this salary level, he is unlikely to come anywhere near producing enough to make him a value. He opened with17 points, 11 rebounds and three steals to go along with three blocks, but expect a backslide.
