Monday's NBA DFS Predictions

NBA Daily Fantasy Predictions 5/7/18 Can you play LeBron and Embiid?

Which players in the two NBA Eastern Conference Semifinals should you insert into your NBA Daily Fantasy lineup tonight? Here’s our DFS suggestions for Monday.

Point Guard – Celitcs’ Marcus Smart (at Philadelphia, 6PM ET) $5,800

Smart continues to log big minutes and is finding ways to contribute. The big difference between a good game for him is how he shorts. He shot pretty well in Game 2 and had 36.25 fantasy points. He didn’t shoot well in Game 3 and finished with just 20 fantasy points. I think he will bounce back tonight as Boston looks for the sweep.

Shooting Guard – Cavs’ Kyle Korver (vs. Toronto, 8:30PM ET) $4,600

Korver is definitely a risk, but you need some really cheap options to play the bigger names. He has the potential to push into the high 20s for fantasy points tonight is he hits some early 3-pointers. He logs enough minutes to make an impact, it is just a matter if he becomes a part of the offense.

Small Forward – Cavs’ LeBron James (vs. Toronto, 8:30PM ET) $12,100

LeBron has dominated this series, capping things off with the game-winner at the buzzer in Game 3. While I tend to lean more towards LeBron in must-win games, he seems to be locked in with this matchup and knows the importance of finishing the sweep and getting rest. He has had at least 60 fantasy points in his last four games, including three over 69.

Power Forward – Raptors’ Serge Ibaka (at Cleveland, 8:30PM ET) $4,900

Ibaka came off the bench in Game 3 and still had one of his best efforts, posting a near double-double of 11 points and 8 rebounds. He also tallied four blocks. With a potential sweep facing Toronto, the Raptors will need their veterans to step up. That includes Ibaka. I think he had another productive game tonight.

Center – 76ers’ Joel Embiid (at Philadelphia, 6PM ET) $9,800

The 76ers have been disappointing, but Embiid has not been the issue. He has a double-double in all three games of the series and has posted at least 50 fantasy points in all of the games. Boston has struggled with centers all year and clearly they can’t stop Embiid. With Philly needing a win, they have to ride their stud tonight.
