Monkey Knife Fight Picks: More or Less NBA DFS Picks for Thursday

NBA Preview and NBA DFS Picks

Tonight is Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals, which has a bunch of interesting matchups that you can play on Monkey Knife Fight!

Chris Paul is expected to be back after health and safety protocols so that should give the Suns a big boost as the Phoenix Suns face the Los Angeles Clippers in LA to try and take a commanding 3-0 lead in the series.

Here are my top Monkey Knife Fight picks that can hopefully make your Fantasy Basketball night profitable:



Devin Booker LESS THAN 29.5 POINTS

  • Booker only scored 20 points in Game 2 and was held to one three-pointer.

  • CP3 could be back in the lineup so the offensive workload will be distributed more evenly.

  • The Kentucky product has scored less than 29.5 points in four of the last six playoff games.

  • In five combined regular-season and playoff games versus the Clippers this year, Booker has gone over this total once. (20 points, 40, 21, 24 and 25).

Paul George MORE THAN 30.5 POINTS

  • George missed two critical free throws at the end of Game 2 so he’ll be motivated to spark the Clippers to a Game 3 victory at home.

  • He has recorded more than 30.5 points in four of the last six games.

  • PG13 has tallied five or more free throws in five straight contests.

  • He has produced at least 10 field goals in four consecutive matchups.



More or Less


Deandre Ayton MORE THAN 10.5 REBOUNDS

  • Ayton scored the game-winning bucket in Game 2 on a ridiculous inbound alley-oop with less than a second on the clock and grabbed 14 rebounds.

  • He averaged 10.4 boards in the regular season and registered 11 rebounds, 10 and 8 in three regular-season games versus the Clippers.

  • Ayton’s playoff high for rebounds is 17 and 15 of them were on the defensive end of the floor.


  • The Clippers big man has grabbed eight or less rebounds in four of the last five playoff contests.

  • He collected 7.2 boards per game in the regular season and is only averaging a career 5.4 rebounds against the Suns.

  • Before his Game 2 performance of 11 rebounds, he had only 3 in Game 1.

  • In three regular-season games versus the Suns, Zubac scored less than 8.5 rebounds in all three games (7 rebounds, 5 and 4.
