Description: NBA DFS And Fantasy Team Picks, Studs, Values, Projections, Match Centre on September 10: Rockets strive to restore parity in the series once again as the clubs looks to keep alive in the semi-finals
A failure to convert from across the field has thwarted Houston Rockets in the conference semi-finals. With their showdowns against Los Angeles Lakers being determined by the smallest of margins, a lowly conversion rate in the field points has persistently pushed the Rockets back.
The dilemma came to hurt the side in game 3 with the club being putdown 112-102 to go down 2-1 in the series. Also, with House out for the imminent encounter after flouting COVID norms, the Rockets find themselves staring at a daunting task as they look to draw level in the series once again today.
DraftKings NBA DFS Picks
LeBron James, 12,800
He might have fallen short of a triple-double in game 3 but LeBron James’ sensational display still turned into a game winning showing for the Lakers. He accrued 36 points, 5 assists and 7 rebounds, a clinical and well rounded display to guise his side to a 2-1 lead.
Anthony Davis, 11,600
We have sung accolades for Davis all across the season and the Lakers’ power forward has done every bit plausible to justify those accolades. He delivered a stunning 26 point and 15 rebound double-double in game 3, a performance which saw him rise in stature even more.
Robert Covington, 7,400
Robert Covington has come alive in the playoffs and the player has only gone from strength to strength in the semi-finals. Cleared of an injury after a collision in game 3, the player makes for a must have pick given his ability to line up windmills and alleyoops.
Rajon Rondo, 7,800
Rondo’s return for the Lakers has been the finest bit of news for the club. After missing out in the bubble, he came back in the conference semi-finals and needing no time settling into groove with his sprawling skill set seeing him shoot 21 points in game 3.
P.J. Tucker, 5,800
He might have waned in form in game 3 but that doesn’t faze us from opting for the Rockets’ centre for the outing. He’s been a consistent and dependable player for the side in the bubble, someone who has cantered his way in both the paints to register both jump shots and boards.
Jeff Green, 4,600
Tucker’s slump in form the last time around didn’t quite hurt the Rockets with Green piling on the points in the paint. Backstepping to shoot offhanded shots, he scoured his way past the Lakers’ defence with ease to make him our final pick for the impending outing.
