Tuesday's NBA Daily Fantasy Picks

NBA Daily Fantasy Predictions 5/22/18 Who should you play on Tuesday?

Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals takes place tonight. Which players on the Rockets and Warriors will step up and have a big night? Here’s our NBA Daily Fantasy picks for the night.

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 3 was around 196 points as the Warriors routed the Rockets. Here’s our six players for tonight’s roster.

Warriors’ Stephen Curry, $13,000: Curry seemed to get back on track in Game 3, hitting five 3-pointers and scoring 35 points while finishing with 48 fantasy points. He has scored at least 45 fantasy points in his last three home games. I think he shoots well again tonight at home.

Warriors’ Draymond Green, $12,100: Green put up an impressive double-double with 17 rebounds. That led to 45.75 fantasy points. He has ranged from 45-64 fantasy points over his last four home games. Scoring isn’t a big part of his game, but he handles the ball a lot and pulls down plenty of rebounds.

Rockets’ Chris Paul, $11,600: Paul has been pretty good in this series in terms of consistency. He has ranged from 35-45 fantasy points while picking up 25 rebounds over the three games. Paul has shown a lot of intensity in the series and he knows that falling behind 3-1 will be nearly impossible to bounce back from.

Rockets’ P.J. Tucker, $6,400: Tucker has been alternating good and bad fantasy showings. After putting up 40.75 fantasy points in Game 2, he had just 15 fantasy points in Game 3. Still, Tucker logs a lot of minutes. He has played at least 33 in each game of this series. That gives him a high ceiling for output.

Warriors’ Kevon Looney, $3,900: The Warriors are expecting to be without Andre Iguodala tonight due to his knee injury, which should open the door for Looney to see extending minutes. Looney has been productive in his limited action thus far, grabbing a handful of points and rebounds.

Warriors’ Shaun Livingston, $2,600: Livingston is getting somewhere in the teens for minutes each game and he has managed to turn that into double-digit fantasy points in two of the three games of the series. With this spot on the roster, you just need whatever you can get.
