DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Saturday (2/22) PREMIUM
Saturday night’s schedule features a seven-game slate, six of which are included in the main tip-off at 7:00 p.m. EST and one game which tips off at 3:30 p.m. EST on the all-day slate. The Dallas Mavericks, Cleveland Cavaliers, Phoenix Suns, and the Utah Jazz are all operating on a back-to-back.
Luka Doncic (PG – DAL): $10,200 @ ATL
Coming to no surprise, Doncic dominated in his first game back post-all-star break, totaling 62 DraftKings points on a 33-point performance. The young superstar nearly triple-doubled in the contest, coming up two assists shy of the mark, yet still dominated in a very tough matchup, all but proving he is matchup proof. The matchup eases up considerably tonight against the Atlanta Hawks which rank 28th in defensive rating and 6th in pace. Leaving Luka out of your lineup tonight is akin to playing with fire: don’t do it.
Spencer Dinwiddie (PG – BKN): $7,700 @ CHA
Starting PG Kyrie Irving has been ruled out for the remainder of the season, and that is a major positive for a potential all-star snub in Dinwiddie. Dinwiddie’s value directly coincided with Irving’s availability, though that will no longer be an issue this season. Dinwiddie’s usage rate skyrockets with Irving sidelined and he has proven he is a reliable starter and budding star as the starting point guard. In his last four games, Dinwiddie has managed to top 41+ DraftKings points three times, with the lowest-scoring contest landing at 39 points, all of which hit value. The matchup tonight against the 26th-ranked defense in the Charlotte Hornets is a positive environment for Dinwiddie and his Brooklyn Nets.
