Big 11-game slate on deck in the NBA tonight. The game's best players sit atop the board salary-wise. There are two marquee matchups: Celtics and Bucks meet in Boston and Clippers and Jazz face-off in Utah. The Rockets and Wizards matchup has the highest total, followed by the Suns and the Warriors.
Here is an early look at some of my favorite potential plays on DraftKings:
SF/PF Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks ($10,800)
The league's reigning MVP travels to Boston for one of tonight's marquee matchups. You have to pay up heavy for Giannis but that's what happens when you average over 60 DK points per game.
PG/SG James Harden, Houston Rockets ($10,000)
Harden is off to a slow start, only making six of his 40 three-point attempts. His price and recent struggles may drive his ownership down, but he is well worth the risk vs. the Wizards.
PG/SG Devin Booker, Phoenix Suns ($7,900)
Booker may be my favorite play of the night. The upstart Suns travel to Golden State to take on the defensively-challenged Warriors. The Suns are playing hot right now and have a top 10 offense. Booker could go off!

Best of the rest
SF/PF Danilo Gallinari, Oklahoma City Thunder ($6,700)
Look for Gallinari to contribute in multiple ways as the Thunder host the road-weary Portland Trailblazers. He will be a stat sheet stuffer.
SF/PF OG Anunoby, Toronto Raptors ($4,700)
Anunoby comes at a great price tonight in the Raptors matchup vs the Pistons. Anunoby may not drop a ton of points but he does many things very well.
SG/SF Eric Gordon, Houston Rockets ($3,900)
If Gordon can hit a few threes tonight, he should easily exceed his price tag. Gordon is one of the better low-cost plays on the board.
