DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Monday (4/9)

We have a nine-game slate and these are the final few days of the regular season. Several teams in the Western Conference still have yet to clinch a playoff spot. There are five teams, all within one game, who have yet to clinch. Super exciting time of the year, and it should be a wild few days to end the season.

Russell Westbrook (OKC): $11,900 @ MIA
Westbrook and the Thunder are one of those teams who need to win, and they are not ending the season on a high note. They are 5-5 over their last 10 games and have fallen into the seventh spot in the West. Westbrook has the ability to win games on his own, and he’s one of few players on this slate who can legitimately put up 70 fantasy points. He is up against the Heat, who he has played one time this season, putting up 59 fantasy points in only 35 minutes. Westbrook is the second most expensive player on the slate, so if you are rostering him you will need to find the savings elsewhere.

Jrue Holiday (NO): $8,400 @ LAC
Holiday and the Pelicans are in a spot where they need to win to clinch a playoff spot, and he is staring down a very favorable matchup. Tonight he is up against the Clippers, who are giving up 44 DraftKings points per game to shooting guards, which is second worst in the league. He has a usage rate sitting at 27% along with averaging 1.22 fantasy points per minute, both of which are second highest on the team. He will see touches tonight and should be able to make the most of them. In the three games he has played the Clippers this season, he is averaging 43 DraftKings points per game.
