The NBA presents a matchup between with the New York Knicks and the Philadelphia 76ers. Let’s take a look at this game from a DFS perspective.

Before we dive into the New York Knicks vs. Philadelphia 76ers game let’s review the rules for Draftkings single game showdown contest.

Draftkings Single Game Showdown Contest Rules

You have $50,000 to utilize on five players from either team. However, one of those players will be designated as your team captain. The captain accumulates 1.5 times the standard fantasy points. Additionally, the captain is 1.5 times the standard cost of the flex position.

The remaining four players in your lineup will receive the standard fantasy points. Having stated that, it is highly important for you to identify the correct player for your captain position if you hope to win a large field DFS GPP (guaranteed prize pool) showdown contest.

If you have additional questions regarding the rules for the single game showdown contest, I recommend that you check out the Draftkings website for more details.

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

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Joel Embiid $12,000

The Philadelphia 76ers entered the 2024 NBA playoffs as the number seven seed in the Eastern Conference playoff standings. Having stated that, a big reason why the 76ers have played relatively consistent quality basketball this season is talented New York Knicks center Joel Embiid.

Let’s dive into Joel Embiid’s recent statistical data to get a better idea of his performance on the basketball court in 2024. In the Philadelphia 76ers last five games played this season (including the playoffs), Embiid averaged an impressive 31 points, 11.4 rebounds, 6.4 assists, and 0.7 steals a game.

In the Philadelphia 76ers 104-101 loss to the New York Knicks three days ago, Joel Embiid played exceptionally well. Joel Embiid accumulated 34 points, 10 rebounds, 6 assists, and 1 block in the 76ers loss to the Knicks.

In summary, I expect 76ers center Joel Embiid to continue posting quality fantasy numbers versus this New York Knicks team in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference playoffs later today.

Flex Plays

Josh Hart $9,000

Since the beginning of April, the New York Knicks have played ten games (including playoffs). In those ten games just noted, Josh Hart has averaged an impressive 14.1 points, 8.9 rebounds, 4.9 assists, and 1.3 steals a game. It has to be said, those are some quality offensive numbers from the New York Knicks forward.

Looking at the data I just presented more closely I observed that in his last ten games played, Josh Hart has averaged 37.6 Draftkings points a game.

Donte DiVincenzo $8,200

New York Knicks guard Donte DiVincenzo has certainly been a key contributor to this New York Knicks team in 2024. Let’s take a look at a sample of DiVincenzo’s recent game statistics to shed light on my previous statement. In the New York Knicks last three games played (including playoffs), DiVincenzo averaged 14.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.5 steals a game.

Additional players I like to play well (Draftkings price noted): Jalen Brunson $11,000: Tyrese Maxey $9,800: Nicolas Batum $4,800: Kyle Lowry $5,600.
