DraftKings NBA DFS Picks
Luka Doncic, 11,000
Ever since the return of NBA 2019-20, Luka Doncic has never left the ambit of our side when his side has been in play. The point guard has been tearing up records, torching his way to triple-doubles as he looks to guide Dallas Mavericks towards a spot in the annuls of the western Conference.
Reggie Jackson, 5,400
When LA Clippers take on Portland Trail Blazers, the chances of Reggie Jackson being handed over a place in the side’s starting rotations are extremely high. He registered a well rounded 15 points and 8 rebounds for the Clippers in his last outing, a performance which was a testament to his expansive skill set as a player.
Gary Trent, 4,800
At a meagre 4,800, Gary Trent is someone we just couldn’t let out at the moment. The player is in the best form of his career in the bubble, a player’s whose incredible ability to shoot triples from the corner and deep see Portland Trail Blazers make an advent into today’s encounter against the Clippers with a fair chance of registering their first win against the Clippers.
Michael Porter Jr, 7,200
When the season had resumed, few had envisages Michal Porter doing what he’s done across the last couple of weeks. The small forward has emerged as the fulcrum of this Denver Nuggets side with the player making real inroads into the side’s playing 5 to hammer down a spot in their starting rotations.
He recorded a behemoth 27-12 double-double the last time around, a performance which saw him propel his side towards second spot in the Western Conference.
Danny Green, 3,400
Despite largely featuring as a substitute, Danny Green managed to roll in the 10 points and 3 rebounds for himself in the Lakers’ bygone scrimmage. The points in the paint make him a solid pick for the imminent encounter, ones which will go in extremely well with the rebounds, deflections and steals he’s set to indulge us in.
Georges Niang, 3,100
With injuries striking Utah Jazz at the moment and with there being no certainty over the availability of regular starters today, Niang could end up benefitting once again. And elevated minutes for him on the court make him pristine value for today with the players crossovers and handles allowing him to deliver floating jump shots for the side.
Nikola Jokic, 9,200
Well rested in the bygone encounter and now up against his favourite side, Nikola Jokic is someone we envisage tearing his way to a slew of points today. The centre came up with an electric triple-double the last time these two squared off, a performance which was an epitome of his radiant and quirky nature as a player.
Ivica Zubac, 5,400
He delivered a staggering double-double the last time he took to the court to see us make the Clippers’ centre an instant pick. With 21 points and 15 rebounds on the day, Zubac showed that he can maraud his way into both the ambits of the side’s ambit, a performance he can easily emulate against a stumbling Portland side.
