DraftKings NBA DFS Picks
Jamal Murray, 8,600
The Denver Nuggets point guard has spared no expense in helping keep his side abreast in the playoffs. After dropping 50 points in game 4, he pulled off a game winning 42 points in game 5 to ease the deficit between Denver and Utah to 3-2.
Fred VanVleet, 7,700
The fulcrum of the Raptors attack at the moment, Fred is thriving in one of the best periods of his career at the moment. There’s been no stopping him in the bubble with his expertise when it comes to lining up triples from the deep powering the Raptors to a 4-0 lead against the Nets.
Norman Powell, 5,100
With 29 points and 5 rebounds in his side’s fourth win on the spin against the Nets, Powell went onto further nail his spot in the side’s shooting rotations. His innate ability to line up the triples has helped his side flourish, traits which will be required in abundance against Boston today.
Kawhi Leonard, 10,100
With Kristaps ruled out for this outing and Dallas sweating on Doncic’s availability, Leonard can easily go for the jugular today. This might finally be the tie where the Clippers put this series to bed as Leonard makes full use of his expansive skill set to come up with corners treys, dimes, boards and deflections.
Daniel Theis, 4,300
Although he’s set to be reverted to a large role as a substitute as the semi-finals come upon us, Daniel Theis’ performance in game 4 for Boston was a confidence filling one. He went for 15 points on the day with his reverse scoops and alleyoops seeing him become a treacherous name to square off against.
Georges Niang, 3,500
Not the most illustrious of shooters, Niang will still be ingrained in our side for the impending affair. At a frugal 3,500 credits, he more than justifies his selection with his jump shots allowing him to come up with a sustainable amount of baskets.
Serge Ibaka, 6,100
There’s just no stopping Ibaka at the moment. He accrued a 27-15 double-double in game 4, one which saw his tenacious ability when defending his paint leave the Nets in a quagmire on how to score past him.
Montrezl Harriss, 4,400
Amidst all the unsavoury issues shrouding him at the moment, Harriss has managed to quietly go about his job. Although he’s been massively smeared for his crass comments on Doncic, his performances on the court haven’t wavered with him popping up with a 19-11 double-double the last time around.
