As this is a single-game showdown, I am going with more of a GPP lineup instead of our normal cash lineups!

Let’s take a look at our DraftKings lineup!

As it’s a GPP lineup, I’m going to go against what will be the most obvious play and I’m fading Damian Lillard!

In doing that, I’m expecting big games by both CJ McCollum, Jusuf Nurkic & Hassan Whiteside!

CJ McCollum had a 33-point (49.6 FanDuel point performance) agianst Memphis in one of the earlier games in the bubble and with Dillon Brooks on him, I expect another monster game from the sharpshooter and putting him in my MVP slot.

I like pairing Jusuf Nurkic as Nurkic can fill out the stat sheet and I’ve really like what I’ve seen from Whiteside over his last two games, averaging about 30 DraftKings points over those two games.

For the Grizzles, we’re going to put their best player in Ja Morant and pair him with both Dillon Brooks and Kyle Anderson who should have major roles for today’s big game!

Don't forget to follow me on Twitter (@BrettCU05) as this is the best place for me to provide any last-minute updates as we continue to get injury updates throughout the day.

Here is our FanDuel Lineup:

MVP: CJ McCollum

UTIL: Jusuf Nurkic

UTIL: Ja Morant

UTIL: Dillon Brooks

UTIL: Hassan Whiteside

UTIL: Kyle Anderson

Good Luck!
