By far the most significant of tonight’s three NBA games is a must-win for Indiana, at home against the Wizards. Boston has clinched a postseason spot but the Pacers are still in a battle with Brooklyn to determine the eighth team in the East.
A 13-game slate means plenty of choices in daily NBA contests at DraftKings. Of the four players with 5-digit salaries, James Harden $11000 is probably the safest play, as he leads the Rockets into San Antonio.
No fooling, there are a dozen NBA games and DraftKings offers four different starting times for daily fantasy fun and profit. The four-game Turbo contests at 8:00 ET are fascinating.
Teams in the NBA playoff races aren’t the only ones watching scoreboards this time of year. Take the Philadelphia 76ers, for example.
