It’s time for our annual NBA DFS all day Christmas extravaganza! For those of us that played NBA DFS in the bubble, it’s a return to one of those glorious days where the NBA lasted all day! Enjoy it. That wont happen much at all this year.
As usual, the NBA puts out some marquee matchups on Christmas. We tip off at noon eastern with Miami hosting Zion and the Pelicans. That’s followed up by Giannis hosting Curry and the Warriors. 5pm Eastern sees Brooklyn heading to Beantown.
We finish up out west with the Lakers hosting Dallas and 8pm Eastern and Denver hosting the Clippers for the nightcap at 10:30 Eastern. This is going to be a great day!
As per usual, we need to take a look at the injuries first. This is a smaller slate, so any kind of value can help here.
LeBron will play on Christmas. There’s little doubt about that.
I started doing the trifecta last year where at the request of a reader I tried to predict the top three scorers of the night. I got all three right twice, but they were never in the right order. I’m not one to give up that easily, so I’ll do it again. I’ll go with A.D., Giannis, and Kawhi.
