DraftKings NBA DFS 8/26 Picks
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, 7,400
18 points, 6 assists and 12 rebounds for Shai in game 4 make him an instant pick for us today. The point guard’s titillating performance was at the forefront of his side’s triumph against the Rockets, a showing which alluded to his ability to deliver from the corners and midrange region.
George Hill, 3,900
With an elevated role in his side’s hooting arounds the last time around., Hill showed why he still continues to remain an integral part of his side’s docket. He had 9 points, 6 assists and 2 rebounds in a well rounded display and with Milwaukee set to dominate this one as well, Hill should continue to get an escalated outing.
Dennis Schroder, 6,400
Dennis is a man on a mission for Oklahoma at the moment. His 30 point performance spearheaded the side’s charge to a win against the Rockets the last time around to see him accrue 59 points in his foregone two encounters.
Khris Middleton, 7,800
Middleton is running the show yet again for Milwaukee. With Orlando offering little in the way of fortitude and resillinace, Khris raked up a double-double of 21 points and 10 rebounds the last time around, a performance which was a testament to his expansive expertise as a small forward.
Danuel House Jr., 5,500
With the Rockets needing to defend their rim and win the battle of the boards today, the side is bound to turn to Danuel. His tenacity has not only seen him quash shots but has seen him accrue rebounds and deflections as well to make him a must have pick for us.
Anthony Davis, 10,500
He’s listed questionable after leaving the previous game owing to a back injury but Davis is set to be back today. And given the form he’s in this season, a player whose endeavours have seen him rise to his side’s clarion call and pull off vibrant displays, the Lakers man is a must have pick for us.
P.J. Tucker, 4,300
Tucker’s inconsistency was a deterrent for us when making him our pick but the minutes he’s getting make him a viable option. He plays almost the entire contest and with a solid 11-11 double-double in the bygone scrimmage, the centre will be ingrained in our outfit for the clash.
Dwight Howard, 3,800
Given the manner in which the Lakers are set to dominate today’s scrimmage as well, Howard will be instilled in our framework. The centre is slowly settling into his groove inside the bubble and in imperious touch, he makes for an unstoppable force when stringing his way both points in the paint and steals and blocks.
