Anfernee Simons, 3,000
Our cheapest pick for the day, the Portland Trial Blazers’ not only offered us pristine value on a day where we’ll need to break the bank for the wordclass players but is a name who comes into our side in the wake of an impeccable showing. With 23 points in foregone scrimmage, he’s too good a pick to let slip out of our hands, someone who could end up making a real difference at the end of the day.
James Harden, 11,100
His endeavours against Dallas Mavericks ended up making all the difference in that skirmish. The four point swing between the two sides in the 153-149 game was down to the staggering 49 points Harden ended up dropping on the day, a performance which makes him a must have selection for the encounter.

Luka Doncic, 10,800

Giannis Antetokounmpo, 11,000
Giannis needed no time to resuming normal service. The power forward showed why he’s considered as the fulcrum of this Milwaukee Bucks’ juggernaut.
