Last night, if you chose Klay Thompson over Anthony Davis and Steph Curry, you saved some money and if you read my post, and accepted my suggestions, you probably selected Draymond Green and Jimmy Butler.

With those three players, you have the great lineups and the big advantage against your opponents in the Daily Fantasy Basketball Contest.

Ok, let's go NBA fans. You are ready for tonight, I know that, and you know that. So, what are you waiting for?

First, relax. Watch Top 10 Dunks Of The 14/15 NBA Season

Today we have three games: Celtics vs. Cavaliers, Wizards vs. Raptors and Mavericks vs. Houston.

You have next contest for Daily Fantasy Basketball:

1.DraftKings is hosting 1-day NBA contests with thousands in prizes. I suggest you free entry - NBA $80K SHARPSHOOTER. Try to beat competitions.

2. FanDuel is hosting $30K Tue NBA Slam #2, and entry is 25$. It's your decision. You have a better chance if you play more than one contest.

3. FantasyUp has $1 Big 50/50 ($90 guaranteed) contest. FantasyUp is the new top daily fantasy sports site, and they have a 300% First Deposit Bonus. Enter here. 

4. StarFantasy has $22 - NBA DAILY $100K SALARY - $200.00 IN PRIZES. 

5. FantasyDraft has BETA NBA $5 50/50 (ALL 4/21). $225.00 in cash prizes are up for grabs. Multi-Entry format with a 5 entry max per player. Top 25 finishers will be in the PayoutZone.

Mix one big contest and one double up. That is the best combination in the Daily Fantasy Basketball.

1st Pick of the Day

SG James Harden

$10.500 (DraftKings)

Last Game vs. Mavericks: 24 PTS, 2 REB, 11 AST, 1 STL

24 Points? Are you kidding me? This is the night of James Harden.

We can accept 30+ points. Everything less is a disaster for fantasy fans. I must repeat, we are expecting 30+ points tonight. Select him.

2nd Pick of the Day

SF LeBron James

Scroll to Continue


$10.600 (DraftKings)

Like Harden, LeBron scores only 20 points with 6 rebounds and 7 assists. Celtics will try to steal this one, and LeBron has a good chance for 25+ points. Who can defend Lebron tonight? Nobody.

The Great Expectations

SG DeMar DeRozan

$7.800 (DraftKings)

Only 15 points, but 11 rebounds and 6 assists. What about 23 points tonight? Toronto must win, and if they play overtime, DeMar DeRozan will score more than everybody else in the Raptors roster.

PG Kyle Lowry

$7.900 (DraftKings)

Notice this one: 2-10 from FG vs. Wizards. Can he repeat that? Only 4 assists, is that real? Like a DeRozan, Kyle must play a big game tonight.

Fantasy Moneyball

PF Terence Jones

$5.800 (DraftKings)

He played great in the first game against Mavericks. I expect maybe fewer points, but more rebounds and blocks. He will get double-double.

C Jonas Valanciunas

$5.400 (DraftKings)

Like DeRozan and Lowry, he must prove himself tonight. He can't be worse than last game, with only 6 points and 3-7 FG.

The Big Fail 

PF Dirk Nowitzki 

$6.900 (DraftKings)

Last game he scored 24 points. Tonight, Rockets with Terence Jones and Josh Smith will play better defense on him. Maybe Monta Ellis is a good pick because he will have more space in this game, instead of Nowitzki.

SG Kyrie Irving

$7.900 (DraftKings)

Kyrie Irving scored 30 points vs. Celtics. Cleveland is a lot better than Boston, why would he play another big game today?

Good Luck!
