Looking good for giving the Clippers an excruciating headache today as well, Dallas Mavericks have been rocked back in their spirations of drawing level in the series. With Doncic a game time call, the side could ned up potentially end up losing a name who has spearheaded their cause to this stage of the marquee league.

DraftKings NBA DFS Picks
Shake Milton, 4,400
Accorded of over 30 minutes for yet another encounter, Milton showed what he’s capable of. He came up with a scrumptious 17 points, 3 assists and 6 rebounds in game 3 with his well rounded performance set to see him retain his spot in Philadelphia’s starting rotations today as well.
Lou Williams, 5,900
With Patrick Beverly out for the Clippers at the moment, the side has turned to Williams to take over from the injured man. And he did exactly that the last time around with a crucial 23 points, 7 assists and 4 rebounds to see him come up with both treys and dimes to power his side to a 130-122 against Dallas.
Tim Hardaway Jr, 5,700
With Doncic set to be restricted in his minutes even if he does play today, Tim Hardaway makes for a must have pick. He ended up delivering 22 points and 6 rebounds the last time as Doncic failed to complete game 3 with his points coming owing to his ability to traverse past defenders with his crossovers and handles.
Kawhi Leonard, 9,800
Dallas’ biggest dilemma in the playoffs has been how to curtail the three pointers. Its been a plight which has restrained them from a string of wins all season long and with the side failing to get the money of their back, they find themselves trailing the Clippers 2-1.
And someone whose capitalised on this predicament is Kawhi Leonard. His ability to open the zone and shoot from the deep saw him come up with a game winning 36 points in game 3 to make him an instant pick for us today.
Marcus Morris Sr.
While his 19 points were impressive enough the last time around, what really made Marcus a must have pick for this one was his ability to come up with the rebounds and blocks. His tenacity and sprawling expertise has made him a crucial name in Clippers’ defence, one crucial to negate the threat Dallas hold from the three pointers.
Maxi Kleber, 4,300
He was in dismal touch the last time around but that does nothing to deviate us from opting for Kleber as our power forward for the day’s tie. The player has an innate ability to register the boards and clobber side in their ambitions of coming up with points to see his defensive attributes make his way into our framework.
Joel Embiid, 10,000
His 30-12 double-double in game 3 sees Joel with a double-double in every outing of the playoffs. He’s waged a lone battle for his side all across the bygone encounters and with today looking likely to be his final appearance this season, he’ll be looking to leave with a reminder of his sprawling qualities.
Ivica Zubac, 4,400
He’s often gone under the radar with Zubac has kept going about his job quietly in the backdrop. He’s not only sent down the alleyoops but has more importantly screened and guarded his post with ease to see him pile on 15 points and 6 rebounds the last time around.
