NBA DraftKings Lineup: Optimal Picks, Analysis for Jan. 7

There are only four games on the NBA slate for Thursday, January 6, and only one of those features two teams with winning records. But for daily fantasy purposes, there is a lot of intrigue on the schedule. Atlanta at Philadelphia has an over/under of 204 and a sneaky chance to turn into a track meet. Boston at Chicago has Bobby Portis. And we love Bobby Portis. Los Angeles (Lakers) at Sacramento, the most intriguing contest of the day, doesn't have an over/under at the time of writing this, but that might be because it broke the scale. Neither team plays much defense (Lakers are last in the NBA in defensive rating, Kings are 25th), and both teams enjoy pushing the pace (Kings are first in possessions per 48, Lakers are 11th). That's the perfect mix for fantasy, and you'll notice that I'm concentrating on that game with my DraftKings lineup for Thursday. You can click to the right for the all the picks. (Getty)
