DFS - NBA - DraftKings - NBA Lineup - Main Slate - 8/21/20

Happy Friday! Hope everyone has had a great week!
We continue today with some great NBA action and let us take a look at our NBA DraftKings lineup which features 4 games and starts at 1:30pm.
Kicking off our team today, we’re going with a 3-man stack of the Brooklyn Nets as I love their value today. Brooklyn has been competitive in this series and we should see some major minutes for some of their value plays with Joe Harris not available today.
As Toronto’s focus will be slowing down Caris LeVert, I think it opens up some great opportunity for the supporting case in Timothe Luwauw-Cabarrot, Garrett Temple, and Jarrett Allen.
Staying in this matchup, I’m hoping that Norman Powell will look like the same guy we saw in Game 2 as he was outstanding, posting 37.0 DraftKings points in 32 minutes of action. Powell has shown his ability to put up points and I’ll take my chances with him again as his salary is still very affordable at just $4,200.
We are going to also have a 3-man stack of Los Angeles Clippers who have the highest implied scoring total on the slate, currently set at 118.75.
For the Clippers we’re going with Reggie Jackson, Marcus Morris Sr., & Kawhi Leonard.
Jackson should see another 25 minutes tonight with Patrick Beverley doubtful and doesn’t need to do much to hit value at his $3,500 price tag.
Morris is seeing between 30-35 minutes and has been outstanding in his first two games agianst Dallas, posting back-to-back 30+ DraftKings point performances.
Leonard continues to show in the playoffs how great a player he is and as he has put up 21 shots in both game in this series, I think he actually has some value at his price tag of $9,600.
Rounding out the team, we’re going to paying for Luka Doncic who I think posts a monster triple-double tonight and is the highest scoring player on the slate.
