Description: NBA DFS And Fantasy Team Picks, Studs, Values, Projections, Match Centre on September 22: Must win encounter for Denver with the serries gradually slipping away from their hands
Denver Nuggets did everything within their grasp to try and restore parity in the Western Conference finals when they stepped out for game two of the series. However, despite their late onslaught, the side failed to pull off a series levelling win with Davis coming up with the winning shot right at the buzzer.
However, the way in which they perturbed the Lakers to wipe away a massive deficit and take the clash all the way to the culminating stages will instil much needed confidence in Denver’s ranks. The performance was reminiscent of their incredible renaissance against Utah Jazz and LA Clippers, fortitude and vigour the side will be looking to unearth today as well.
DraftKings NBA DFS Picks
Nikola Jokic, 16,500
Yet again, Nikola Jokic was the focal point of Denver Nuggets’ gameplan. The centre is doing everything he can to guide the side towards the prestigious finals with him scripting yet another worldclass showing in game two, one made up of 31 points, 9 assists and 6 rebounds.
Anthony Davis, 11,600
Where Denver have Davis at their disposal, the Lakers elsewhere have Davis to counter him. And the power forward has upped the ante in this series, helping make up for LeBron James’ dwindling form.
He was responsible for the side’s win in game two with his ability to burst into the paint seeing him register a stunning 31 point showing.
Jamal Murray, 9,400
Murray’s ability to go on a rampage saw the point guard shoot twenty five points for Denver the last time around. Along with those, he ended up registering six assists and four boards as well, a well rounded performance which took his side to within earshot of a triumph.
Michael Porter Jr., 7,600
When you deliver 14 points and end up with an off day, you know your stature as a player has been escalated. While Porter was efficient as ever when shooting his windmills and reverse scoops, he failed to pull off the dimes and boards, traits which have seen him become a mainstay of Denver’s starting rotations.
Monte Morris, 3,300
He has yet to settle into his groove in the series but Monte Morris continues to remain a viable pick at a frugal price tag. His ability to maraud inside the paint and deliver his floating jump shots see us repose faith in him for game 3.
PJ Dozier, 1,400
After being left in the cold all across the semi-finals, PJ Dozier is back in favour in Denver’s shooting arounds. Although he’s yet to acclimatise himself with the series the 14 minutes he ended up with in game two paired with his acumen make him a must have selection for us.
