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 FanDuel’s 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 4-man stack of Marcus Smart, Jalyen Brown, 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.
I do like Monte Morris as I think he will get plenty of minutes of the Clippers pull away in this one, especially after how many minutes Murray had to log against Utah.
As for the Clippers, I am going to put in Ivica Zubac who has been very solid for the Clippers throughout the playoffs and I think has nice value at just $4,900.
Here is our NBA FanDuel lineup for tonight!
PG: Monte Morris
PG: Kyle Lowry
SG: Fred VanVleet
SG: Marcus Smart
SF: Jaylen Brown
SF: Pascal Siakam
PF: Daniel Theis
PF: Jayson Tatum
C: Ivica Zubac
