DraftKings NBA December 8: Optimal Lineup Picks & Preview

Thursdays are typically fairly quiet in the NBA, but that's not the case this time around with six games on the schedule. The most compelling contest on the night pits the Golden State Warriors' No. 1 ranked offense (115.4 points per 100 possessions) against the Utah Jazz's No. 6 ranked defense and league's slowest pace. For daily fantasy purposes, if there was ever a night to fade the Dubs' high-priced studs, this would probably be that night, but you're nonetheless always playing with fire when you avoid Golden State, so that game will create a lot of interesting decisions. Elsewhere, Denver vs. Washington opened with the highest over/under (217.5), while Minnesota vs. Toronto (214.5) and Philadelphia vs. New Orleans (208) aren't far behind. San Antonio vs. Chicago (199) is projected as the lowest scoring game. Note that injuries and lineup announcements as we get closer to 7 p.m. ET will potentially change things, but for now, you can click through the gallery for my ideal DraftKings lineup picks for Thursday.
