There’s one game on the NBA schedule tonight and it’s Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. This game features a bunch of great Fantasy Basketball matchups that you can play on Monkey Knife Fight and win some cold hard cash.

Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks visit the Milwaukee Bucks to start the Eastern Conference finals!

Here are my top Monkey Knife Fight picks that I am eyeing tonight:



Trae Young LESS THAN 29.5 POINTS

  • The Hawks’ PG has dropped less than 29.5 points in four of the last six playoff games.

  • He averaged 25.3 PPG in the regular season and dropped only 15 points in his lone regular season matchup versus the Bucks.
