One team aims to advance to the conference finals, and another is trying to even their conference semifinal series, when the two-game NBA DFS slate kicks off on Sunday. Former NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo has an excellent chance to rack up points as one of the top NBA DFS picks when he leads the Milwaukee Bucks against Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets at 3 p.m. ET. And Devin Booker, DeAndre Ayton and the Phoenix Suns have the chance to sweep Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets at 8 p.m. ET.

Are Antetokounmpo, Durant, Ayton, Booker or Jokic in line

The Utah Jazz have raced out to a 2-0 series lead over the Los Angeles Clippers in the Western Conference Semifinals and Game 3 will take place on Saturday night in the Staples Center at 8:30 p.m. ET. It’s the only game on the 2021 NBA Playoffs schedule for the day, and that means NBA daily Fantasy players will be going over every possible scenario as they set their NBA DFS lineups. The Jazz have shortened up to an eight-man bench primarily, while the Clippers have surprisingly gone to a 10 or even 11-man rotation.

The Milwaukee Bucks kept their postseason dreams alive after a hard-fought victory over the Brooklyn Nets Thursday night.

It was a turbulent contest packed with lead changes and ties as both teams went back-and-forth until the very last shot, but Milwaukee ultimately escaped with a low-scoring 86-83 victory. It was undoubtedly a brutal 48 minutes of basketball played from both sides, but the Bucks will take it as they now find themselves trailing just 2-1 in this best of seven series.

Yet, optimism is not as free-flowing as it typically

Joel Embiid is playing on a partially torn meniscus but you would never be able to tell from looking at his stats. The MVP runner-up has averaged 39.5 points and 11.0 rebounds since returning from the injury, giving comfort to those who slotted him in their NBA DFS lineups. His mere presence also leads to open shots from behind the arc for Seth Curry and Danny Green, although the latter hasn’t been able to convert them. Embiid is listed as questionable for Friday’s Game 3, but he will surely be in the lineup and one of the top options in

Los Angeles Clippers guard Paul George might be in need of a new nickname after shooting 4-for-17 in his team’s Game 1 loss to Utah in the 2021 NBA Playoffs. The self-proclaimed “Playoff P” now has 10 career playoff games where he’s shot 25 percent or worse from the field. That’s the third-most in the shot-clock era, but George was still able to manage 20 points and 10 rebounds. While his postseason struggles have been glaring, this also presents an opportunity for George to be undervalued for NBA DFS lineups. George ($8,500 on DraftKings, $9,200 on FanDuel) has seen his
