Saturday's a busy day in the NBA, with there being ten games on the schedule. That gives FanDuel players a host of possibilities when it comes to filling out their rosters, with New Orleans forward Anthony Davis ($11,900) and Houston guard James Harden ($11,500) being the most expensive options. Harden was in action Friday night, coming out on top in his showdown with Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook as the Rockets won 102-99. While Harden fell one rebound short of a triple-double, finishing with 21 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds, he didn't have his best night from an offensive standpoint. Harden shot 6-for-23 from the floor, with his 7-for-8 night from the foul line salvaging things points-wise, and he also committed eight turnovers.
But a win is a win, and in the case of the Rockets they received contributions from multiple players as they won despite Westbrook (27 points, ten rebounds, ten assists, eight turnovers) extending his triple-double streak to seven consecutive games. Forward Ryan Anderson ($4,500) contributed 14 points, eight rebounds and one steal Friday night, and guards Eric Gordon (17 points, three assists; $5,400) and Patrick Beverley (three points, 12 rebounds, five assists, two steals; $4,900) were all decent supplementary figures from a FanDuel scoring standpoint, and that could once again be the case Saturday with the Rockets hosting Dallas.
Here are our FanDuel picks for Saturday, working within the rules of a nine-player roster with a $60,000 salary cap. (Getty)
