FanDuel NBA Lineup Picks, Advice & Analysis for December 29

As usual the Thursday schedule in the NBA doesn't have as many options as other nights, with there being just six games for FanDuel players to pick their rosters from. Among those back in action is Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook ($12,500), who has 15 triple-doubles to his credit this season alone. Averaging 58.4 FanDuel points per game, Westbrook has a tough matchup Thursday night as the Thunder visit the Memphis Grizzlies. Even with starting point guard Mike Conley missing time due to injury, the Grizzlies are allowing the seventh-fewest FanDuel points per game at the point guard position (41.0) according to Rotowire.

That being said, given Westbrook's productivity it's difficult to see Memphis shutting him down in the first meeting of the season between the two teams. Westbrook has accounted for 58.9 FanDuel points or more in each of his last six games, surpassing the 70-point mark twice. Who Memphis uses to defend Westbrook will be something to watch, with both Conley and Tony Allen being the most likely options used by head coach David Fizdale. Here are our picks for Thursday's games, using a $60,000 salary cap and a nine-player roster. (Getty)
