The last few days of the NBA regular season are daily fantasy mayhem.
Half of the guys sit out. Half of the games don’t matter. It’s chaos. It’s pandemonium. It’s...really fun.
Yesterday’s pick came through, posting 14 points, 8 rebounds, 1 block, and 1 steal (28.1 FanDuel score, 29 DraftKings score).
I’m now 4-4. I break my tie on the final day before the playoffs begin. This is not only a big night for the Heat, Pacers, and Bulls, as they battle for the No. 7 and 8 seeds in the East.
This is a big night for me. The stakes could not be higher.
Pick: New York Knicks guard Justin Holiday
FanDuel price: $3,700
DraftKings price: $3,900
Opponent: Philadelphia 76ers
Rest assured, the stats will still be recorded in this meaningless game (Note: It’s not completely meaningless...cough...lottery...cough).
No Kristaps Porzingis. No Derrick Rose. Someone on the Knicks besides Carmelo has to get buckets, especially against a 76ers defense that ranks 24th in the league. Why not Justin Holiday?
The sharpshooter saw 40 minutes on Sunday and put up 10 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists. He’s scored in double figures for four straight contests now. Expect him to get a lot of run again tonight.
I’m hungry. Let’s eat.
FanDuel success line: 22
DraftKings success line: 24
