Taj Gibson, Chicago Bulls
The Bulls backup big man made highlight reels with his dunk over Dwyane Wade last postseason. Gibson is a force on both ends of the floor, giving Chicago scary depth in the frontcourt.
Norris Cole, Miami Heat
The rookie point guard could be Miami's version of Rajon Rondo, complementing the Heat's Big 3. Cole is an instant shot of offensive energy.
George Hill, Indiana Pacers
The Pacers have more than a few potential X-factors on their roster, but Hill was just inserted into the starting lineup and gives Indiana a tough two-way point guard.
Avery Bradley, Boston Celtics
Bradley made the most of Ray Allen's injury, jumping into the starting lineup and holding on to the spot despite the Allen's return. Bradley and Rondo combine for one of the fastest backcourts in the NBA.
Iman Shumpert, New York Knicks
Shumpert has become the Knicks' utility man, especially since Jeremy Lin when down. Shumpert can play three positions and often finds himself guarding the opponents' best player.
Al Horford, Atlanta Hawks
Is he in or is he out? Horford has missed most of the season with a pectoral injury but could return before the postseason begins. However, the Hawks big man told reporters "I don't feel like it is realistic that I can play for the playoffs."
Stan Van Gundy, Orlando Magic
Without Dwight Howard and his job security on dangerous ground, Van Gundy has his work cut out for him in the playoffs. Stan can make a stand in Orlando if he can coach up the Magic in the playoffs.
Spencer Hawes, Philadelphia 76ers
The Sixers big man missed time this season and the team suffered because of it. With Hawes back in the paint, it frees up Elton Brand and adds to Philadelphia's deep roster.

1* Georgetown (7:05 ET): By this point of the season, you should need much more in the way of rationale for playing against St. John's. First year head coach Chris Mullin really walked into a bad situation here and so far the Red Storm are just 7-17 straight up w/ their last win coming all the way back on December 13th. So yeah, go the other way.
Georgetown is back home after an ugly week (0-2 on the road) and looking to end a 5-game ATS losing streak. The Hoyas have won just one of those games straight up, beating Creighton by a single point. Off an 11-point loss at Butler and eight-point loss at Seton Hall, John Thompson III's team really needs a "pick me up." They should get it here as they just beat St. John's, by 20, on the road last month.
It was a season-high 93 points scored by the Hoyas in that first meeting. I'm not sure if they'll get quite there again, but the offense should certainly be better here than it was against Seton Hall on Saturday (33.9 FG%). St. John's defense is giving up an average of more than 80 points per game in conference play and as a team just got torched, losing by 33, at home to Butler on Satuday. Lay the points as this should be a blowout. 1* Georgetown
