It’s a full slate on Friday with ten games on the schedule. The action begins at 7 p.m. ET with the Mavericks against the Pistons, the Hornets taking on the Magic, the Cavaliers battling the Sixers, and the Hawks meeting the Wizards. 7:30 p.m. ET has the Bulls against the Celtics, the Heat squaring off with the Knicks, and the Pacers taking on the Raptors. The Kings tank off with the Grizzlies at 8 p.m. ET. A break until 10 p.m. ET when the Pelicans face the Suns. 10:30 p.m. ET has the Timberwolves against the Lakers.
My favorite plays of the day can be found on the following slides in FanSided’s DraftKings daily picks. Each day in order to offer a variety of price points at each position, you can find two slides for each position–one for high-salary options and one for high-value options. Each pick is ranked on a scale of 1-5 stars to indicate the confidence in the pick. The final slide of this post has more detail on what each level means, but in short, more stars means more confidence in the selection on a points-per-dollar basis.

Important note, every day the goal of this post is not to give you a copy-and-paste lineup. Instead, each selection is given while highlighting the factors you need to consider when building a customized lineup for yourself. If you want to see an example lineup, you can find it on the final slide of the post, but I suggest you adjust your lineup to fit your personal taste.
