NBA DFS: Top DraftKings, FanDuel daily Fantasy basketball picks for December 2 include Terry Rozier

For the Phoenix Suns in recent games, it’s been no Chris Paul, no problem. While their veteran point guard has been out with a heel injury, his team has won six consecutive games. Devin Booker has always been a quality option for NBA DFS lineups, but he has taken his game to another level and scored 95 total points with 10 assists over his last two starts.

Cameron Payne has started for the last eleven games in Paul’s place, and though he has shot a modest 41% from the field, he has also hit 41% of his three-pointers and averaged 15.6 points during that run. He looks like a solid option in the NBA DFS player pool once again on Friday against Kevin Porter Jr., Jalen Green and the Houston Rockets, who give up the most points in the league to opposing point guards (27.3 PPG). Before you make your NBA DFS picks for Friday, be sure to check out the NBA DFS advice, player rankings, stacks and top daily Fantasy basketball picks from SportsLine’s Mike McClure.

McClure is a DFS professional with over $2 million in career winnings. He’s also a predictive data engineer at SportsLine who uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every minute of every game 10,000 times, taking factors like matchups, statistical trends and injuries into account.

This allows him to find the best NBA DFS values and create optimal lineups that he shares only over at SportsLine. They’re a must-see for any NBA DFS player.

On Thursday, he highlighted Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic as one of his top NBA DFS picks on both DraftKings and FanDuel. The result: Doncic scored 35 points and dished out 10 assists to go with five rebounds and three steals to return 65.75 points on DraftKings and 62 points on FanDuel. Anybody that included him in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.

Now, McClure has turned his attention to NBA action on Friday and locked in his top daily Fantasy basketball picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.

Top NBA DFS picks for Friday, December 2

One of McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for Friday is Hornets guard Terry Rozier, who is listed at $7,600 on DraftKings and $7,400 on FanDuel. Rozier (illness) missed Charlotte’s last game on Tuesday against Boston but will be back in the lineup against Washington on Friday. Rozier and the Hornets have already faced the Wizards twice this season, and in those games, he averaged 13.5 points with five rebounds and five assists.

In those previous games against Washington, Rozier made just one of his 15 total three-point attempts, but he should expect a better showing from downtown on Friday. Over their last three games, the Wizards have seen opponents make 39% of their three-pointers, and with LaMelo Ball and Dennis Smith Jr. both out with ankle injuries, Rozier is going to have to continue to provide outside shooting. Even if Rozier has to power through another inefficient night, volume shouldn’t be an issue, as he averaged 41.2 minutes over the four games prior to his missed start against Boston.

Another part of McClure’s optimal NBA DFS strategy includes rostering Jazz guard Collin Sexton ($5,500 on DraftKings and $5,100 on FanDuel). Sexton scored 21 points to go with six rebounds and six assists in his last game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday. After starting the season coming off the bench, Sexton has been in the starting lineup over the last six games with Mike Conley sidelined, and in those starts, he averaged 16.3 points, 6.2 assists, and shot 55.9% from the field.

On Friday, the Jazz take on the Indiana Pacers, who are coming off of a stinging loss to Sacramento and are in the midst of a grueling seven-game road trip. Sexton has a chance to boost his Fantasy value on the defensive end as well. He has gone without a steal in his last two games, but he had three steals over the two games before that, and the Pacers have given away 2.43 steals per game to opposing point guards this season.
