The Philadelphia 76ers travel to Madison Square Garden for a matchup with the New York Knicks. Let’s take a look at this NBA game from a DFS perspective.

Prior to discussing my Draftkings picks for the 76ers vs. Knicks game, let’s review an important note regarding the rules and scoring for the single game showdown contests.

For those readers who are not aware, the rules and scoring for DraftKings single game showdown contests are vastly different than the traditional classic contests offered by the platform.

If you need to review the specific rules for the single game showdown contests feel free to check out the Draftkings website.

Here are my Draftkings picks for this evening’s 76ers vs. Knicks matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Jalen Brunson $11,800

The New York Knicks are currently ranked second in the Eastern Conference playoff standings. Having stated that, a big reason why the Knicks have played relatively consistent quality basketball this season is New York Knicks point guard Jalen Brunson.

Let’s dive into Jalen Brunson’s statistical data to get a better idea of his performance on the basketball court in 2024. In 82 games played for the New York Knicks this season, Brunson averaged a robust 28.6 points, 3.7 rebounds, 6.7 assists, and 1 steal a game.

In the New York Knicks 111-104 win over the Philadelphia 76ers two days ago, Jalen Brunson played exceptionally well. More specifically, Jalen Bruson accumulated 22 points, 7 rebounds, 7 assists, and 1 steal in the Knicks win over the Magic.

In summary, I expect Knicks guard Jalen Brunson to continue posting quality fantasy numbers versus this Philadelphia 76ers team later today.

Flex Plays

Tyrese Maxey $9,800

Philadelphia 76ers point guard Tyrese Maxey has been the heart and soul of this Philadelphia team in 2024. Having stated that, how has Maxey performed from an offensive efficiency standpoint this season? In 82 games played, Tyrese Maxey averaged 25.9 points, 3.7 rebounds, 6.2 assists, and 1 steal a game.

Looking at the statistical data I just presented more closely I observed that, in 82 games played in 2024, Tyrese Maxey averaged 43.5 total Draftkings points scored a game.

Josh Hart $8,800

Since the beginning of April, the New York Knicks have played nine games. In those nine games just noted, Josh Hart has averaged an impressive 13.7 points, 9.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists, and 1.2 steals a game. It has to be said, those are some quality offensive numbers from the New York Knicks forward.

Additional players I like to play well (Draftkings price noted): Joel Embiid $13,000: Kelly Oubre $7,200: Kyle Lowry $5,400: Mitchell Robinson $4,400.
