Wednesday's NBA DFS Predictions

NBA Daily Fantasy Predictions 5/16/18 Who should you play on Wednesday?

The Western Conference Finals continue tonight with Game 2 between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets. Who should you include in your Daily Fantasy lineup tonight?

In a single game format on DraftKings, players get to selection six options at any position with a $50,000 budget. The winning total from Game 1 was around 205 points thanks to Houston’s duo in the backcourt and hot shooting from Klay Thompson.

Rockets’ James Harden, $13,900: Harden had a quiet start but rallied later in the game. With the Rockets already in a must-win situation, it falls on their MVP to make something happen. He had 59 fantasy points in Game 1. He may need more tonight.

Rockets’ Chris Paul, $12,600: Paul is a little cheaper option than Kevin Durant and put up nearly equal fantasy points in Game 1. Paul has been really strong the last three games for Houston and showing a lot of determination. I think he continues his hot streak with the Rockets in a must-win.

Warriors’ Klay Thompson, $9,300: Thompson is always a risky play because you are relying on his hot shooting, which’s isn’t always there. He was on fire in Game 1 with six 3-pointers. He is the most affordable of the Warriors’ Big 4, so he is the most reasonable play to give your roster a Big 3 option.

Warriors’ Andre Iguodala, $6,300: Andre Iguodala is a great stat stuffer with a high ceiling. While he can have some very quiet games, his ability to do a little bit of everything still tends to lead to some strong performances. He has scored 61.25 fantasy points over his last three games.

Rockets’ P.J. Tucker, $5,400: Tucker had an off Game 1 and took just three shots. However, his minutes given you reason to trust in him tonight. He has played at least 34 minutes in the last three playoff games and had fantasy totals of 37.5 and 24.75 in the two games prior to Monday. Tucker is definitely a cheaper option that can get you a nice total.

Warriors’ Shaun Livingston, $2,500: It’s hard to get excited about Livingston on your roster, but you are basically hoping for whatever you can get with your final roster spot. Livingston put up 13.25 fantasy points in Game 1 and he has logged double-digit minutes in every playoff game. When he is in, he handles the ball, which leads to fantasy production.
