Two teams try to go up 3-1 in the West on Sunday:

*3:30 p.m. ET: The Warriors look to bounce back against the Pelicans
*8 p.m. ET: The Jazz hope slowdown the Rockets

My favorite plays of the day can be found on the following slides in FanSided’s DraftKings daily picks. The first five slides will have my favorite high salary and high value players at each position. After that, I’ll have a game-by-game preview featuring advice on how to approach certain matchups. The last slide includes some final advice as well as an example lineup.

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.

To keep up with all of FanSided’s DFS NBA coverage head over to the  fantasy basketball hub where each day you can find a post like this tailored for DraftKings as well as one specifically designed for usage on FanDuel. In this post, all salary and “fantasy points” references are to DraftKings scoring system and salaries.
