DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Saturday (12/14) PREMIUM
Tonight’s schedule remains hefty with an 8-game slate scheduled for the day, though only seven of them will compete in the main slate as the contest between the San Antonio Spurs and Phoenix Suns begins at 5:00 p.m. EST. The Los Angeles Clippers, Houston Rockets, Chicago Bulls, Memphis Grizzlies, and Milwaukee Bucks are all operating on a back-to-back. Main slate tip-off locks at 7:30 pm EST.
Kyle Lowry (PG – TOR): $7,800 vs. BKN
Since returning from a lengthy absence, Lowry has largely been a disappointment for DFS players. His minutes are a major positive as he’s registered over 35 minutes in all four games since his return, approaching 40 minutes in all close games. The matchup against the Brooklyn Nets is decent as they rank 16th in defensive rating and 9th in pace, which projects the Toronto Raptors with the 2nd highest implied total of the night thus far at 113.25. Expect Lowry to get a lot of playing time in this game, especially if Fred VanVleet misses the contest due to injury. Lowry is likely to get some positive regression as a shooter, which could lead to a big performance from the veteran.
