Saturday's NBA DFS Predictions
The NBA Playoffs feature a pair of games tonight. Here’s our NBA Daily Fantasy suggestions for the two contest taking place.
Point Guard – Celtics’ Marcus Smart (vs. Milwaukee, 8PM ET) $4,600
Smart didn’t do much in Game 6, but he had a solid Game 5 at home, putting up 26.75 fantasy points. With this being a Game 7, I expect an emotional Smart to put a lot of effort into this game. He has yet to shoot well since coming back from injury. If he finds his shot, he could really put up a big number.
Shooting Guard – Bucks’ Khris Middleton (at Boston, 8PM ET) $6,900
Middleton has put up at least 30 fantasy points in each game at Boston in this series and he has three games in this series with at least 42 fantasy points. The Bucks are going to need Middleton’s shooting if they hope to win this series tonight. I think he bounces back from a lackluster Game 6.
Small Forward – Bucks’ Jabari Parker (at Boston, 8PM ET) $5,600
Parker has been very solid the last four games of the series. He is getting big minutes and averaging nearly a double-double over the last four. He scored 32 fantasy points in Game 5 at Boston with 17 points and eight rebounds. I see him continuing to play at least 25 minutes and being impactful when on the floor.
Power Forward – Warriors’ Draymond Green (vs. New Orleans, 10:30PM ET) $7,700
Green may not be a great option for scoring, but he is going to have to be the guy to pick up rebounds and assists for the Warriors in this series. His defensive role on either Davis or Mirotic will also be very important. Green averaged 11 points, 7.8 rebounds and 8.3 assists per game against the Pelicans this season.
Center – Pelicans’ Anthony Davis (at Golden State, 10:30PM ET) $11,100
Davis had a great series against the Blazers, closing things out with 69.75 fantasy points in Game 4. Now he matches up with a Golden State team that he averaged 33 points and 14 rebounds against this year. He should be able to dominate in the paint against Golden State, with their lack of a dominant post game.
