Hope everyone is having a great Thursday!
The NBA Playoffs have been outstanding so far, I expect that to continue tonight as we look at DraftKings NBA “Main Slate”! We have a two-game slate tonight that starts at 6:30pm with the Boston Celtics looking to go up 3-0 agianst the Toronto Raptors which will be followed by Game 1 of the Denver Nuggets vs. Los Angeles Clippers!
When conducting my lineups tonight, it basically started with me wanting to get as much action to the Boston/Toronto game as I could get.
With Toronto coming into this game in pretty much a must-win spot, I wanted to pay up to get the trio of Kyle Lowry, Fred VanVleet, and Pascal Siakam who should get all the run that they can handle. The Raptors have not shot the ball well yet in this series, however, we do know that all three are going to be getting up at least 15-20 shots tonight and I think all three-hit value at their current price tags.
For the Celtics, we are going with a 3-man stack of Marcus Smart, Daniel Theis, and Jayson Tatum.
In the other matchup, I am expecting the Los Angeles Clippers to cruise to a big victory today against the Denver Nuggets and I’m really just looking some solid salary relief.
For the Nuggets, I’m going with Michael Porter Jr. as he has plenty of motivation going up against a Clippers team that passed over him twice in the draft a few years ago. Porter Jr. has shown his huge upside in the bubble and as I think the Nuggets will need his offense to have any chance, he should see 25-30 minutes whether the game is close or it’s a blowout.
For the Clippers, we’re just going to get some salary relief in Patrick Beverley who looks as of now that he is good to go for Game 1 and doesn’t have to do much to hit value at just $3,500.
Here is our NBA DraftKings lineup for tonight!
PG: Kyle Lowry
SG: Fred VanVleet
SF: Jayson Tatum
PF: Daniel Theis
C: Robert Williams
G: Patrick Beverley
F: Pascal Siakam
UTIL: Michael Porter Jr.
