DraftKings NBA DFS Picks Today
Jordan Clarkson, 3,900
With Bojan out injured, Jordan Clarkson ended up getting an escalated role, one the point guard cherished in. With 32 minutes in his kitty, he ended up recording 23 points in the foregone encounter, a performance which makes him too good an option at a measly 3,900 to discount for the impending outing.
Monte Morris, 3,500
An injury fraught Denver Nuggets side means Monte Morris is going to get an escalated role in his side’s framework today. At a measly 3,500, he makes for an indispensable selection, a player who with 8.4 ppg is set to eye up a slew of triples owing to his ability to open the zone up for himself.
Torrey Craig, 3,300
Injuries to Denver also accord a renewed role to Torrey Craig for the imminent encounter. Rekindled with the elevated minutes he’s set to get on the court today, his ability to translate his endeavours into backsteps and points inside the paint see us roll in the player into our docket.
Kawhi Leonard, 8,900
Clippers’ top scorer this season, new signing Kawhi Leonard has shown why he was so ardently wanted by the club in this edition of the marquee league. The small forward has registered a gargantuan 26.9 ppg for the club, a figure which is a testament to the moniker he’s earned of the mainstay of his team’s attacking slot.
Paul George, 7,900
Ever since the turn of his injury, Paul George has been quick to remind everyone why he’s held in such high stature in the league. Shooting over half of his side’s field points against the Lakers, the player was in imperious touch as he lined up points from the deep with ease to make him an instant selection for the outing.
Anthony Davis, 10,400
Despite a sore eye, Anthony Davis ended dup featuring heavily for the Lakers against the Clippers and turned out to be the side’s winner at the end of the day. He once again grabbed the game by the scruff of its name to show why this has been such a breakthrough season for the power forward who has the 24 ppg and 9 rpg this edition.
Nikola Jovic, 9,900
His numbers aren’t the only reason for us making Nikola Jovic a must have selection for today’s encounter. Despite him having the most points and rebounds for the club what really swung in his favour was the elevated role he’s set to get in a Denver side which will rely on him to compensate for the bevy of injuries the club is currently going through.
Bol Bol, 3,000
Our cheapest pick of the day, this could turn out to be the tie where Bol Bol finally shows everyone why he’s held in such high esteem. The centre has an innate ability of manoeuvring his way the floating jump points and reverse slams, attributers which will see him bring down the curtains on our set of picks for the tie.
