DFS - NBA - FanDuel - NBA Lineup - Main Slate - 8/20/20

The NBA playoffs continue this afternoon and let us look at today’s NBA FanDuel Lineup that features a 4-game slate and starts at 1:00pm!
This was a tough slate to put a team together, but I decided that as I can make it work on FanDuel, I am going to pay up for the monster trio of James Harden, LeBron James, & Anthony Davis!
Harden is pretty much a must play with Westbrook out of the lineup.
LeBron and AD put up a combined 120.1 combined points in their first game against Portland, and as I expect bigger performances from the duo to ensure the Lakers don’t go down two games in the series, I think it’s worth it to pay up for both.
The rest of our team is going to have to be value and starts with Houston as we’re going to pair Harden with both Daniel House & Jeff Green.
At the PG position, we are going with George Hill & D.J. Augustin. Both Hill and Augustin saw about 25 minutes each in their first matchup and as I expect those minutes to be safe, I think they can both repeat their Game 1 performance which saw them combined for about 60 FanDuel points.
Tyler Herro saw 33 minutes and with Jae Crowder questionable due to an ankle injury, I think Herro will see another 30+ minutes tonight.
Rounding out the team, we’re going to be going with Hassan Whiteside who saw 25 minutes in their first game against the Lakers and as they need his rim protection against both Lebron & AD, I think he has another solid performance tonight.
