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* Cleveland (1:00 ET): The chances for the Browns to avoid the infamy of 0-16 are rapidly dwindling. They are just four games left, but realistically there's probably only two shots where they have a legit chance to win, Dec 24th vs. San Diego and here. This week they are coming off a bye and hosting Cincinnati. I'll recommend to take the points.
It's not as if the Browns haven't been competitive. In fact, they actually outgained the Giants two weeks ago in a 27-13 loss. That game really swung on a defensive score by the G-Men. Despite what the final scores might indicate, they've been competitive in four of the last five games. That doesn't even include close losses to Baltimore, Miami and Tennessee earlier in the year. Robert Griffin III, out since Week 1, is expected to be back this week as the starting QB. Coming off a bye and still motivated to avoid NFL history ('08 Lions only 0-16 team in history), the Browns are a solid value this week. Consider that the "lookahead" line for this game was only +3.5.
The Bengals turned in one of their best performances of the year last week, routing Philadelphia 32-14. But it's "too little, too late" here as a 4-7-1 SU record is probably too big of a hole to climb out of. Even if they were to win out, I'm not sure the Bengals would get into the playoffs. The offense is without WR AJ Green and unlike LW, this is a road game. So far this year, the Bengals are 1-5 SU and 0-6 ATS away from home. After being darlings at the betting window LY, Cincy is just 3-8-1 ATS overall in 2016. With Browns HC Hue Jackson being the Bengals former OC, might there be a little sympathy on the sidelines? Not sure, but Cleveland is also due to erase an 0-4 SU/ATS slide in this AFC North rivalry. 1* Cleveland
