Four games on the NBA Playoff Schedule and all series have really turned out to be entertaining. I think I’m probably most looking forward to the Houston-Portland matchup to see if the Rockets can grind it out after Troy Daniels’ game winning shot in the last one. It’s great to see guys like Daniels get some time in the spotlight and it should be interesting to see if Harden can get it going.

DFS Fantasy Basketball Tournament Picks
I put one team in play yesterday and only managed a 251.5. I was short on research time which is why I didn’t post picks for Saturday.
The biggest thing today is the suspension of Nene Hilario. Make sure you get him out of your daily games. Without Nene, the Bulls should be able to ride Noah, Gibson and Boozer to some good stats and all three make decent daily plays. I’d look for the Wizards to try and light it up from outside, which means that Wall, Beal and Ariza should be nice daily plays. One interesting value play for the Wizards could be Trevor Booker, as he probably gets Nene’s minutes and Booker is sitting at a very cheap $4200.
You might also want to avoid Kyle Lowry, as it’s been reported that he’s dealing with a very sore knee, but expects to play.
Also, keep an eye on David Lee, as he might get replaced by Draymond Green. I think Lee is probably too risky to play for $6700.
Nicolas Batum ($7600) also has some sort of toe injury, but he’s still probably the best SF play on the board. If it gets closer to gametime and any report comes out that he’s limited, then I’d probably make a quick change to Chandler Parsons ($7400) at SF.
Here’s what I’m going with today in the FanDuel $5000 NBA Shot:
PG Damian Lillard $7500
PG Deron Williams $6500
SG DeMar DeRozan $7300
SG Brad Beal $7200
SF Trevor Ariza $5700
SF Nicolas Batum $7400
PF Taj Gibson $5800
PF Trevor Booker $4200
C DeAndre Jordan $7800
