We have an intriguing matchup between the Los Angles Clippers and the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors are short-handed heading into this without Stephen Curry and Andrew Wiggins. That opens the door for Jordan Poole to have a big night going against Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.

NBA DFS Showdown Slate Picks
Kawhi Leonard, Los Angeles Clippers
Kawhi Leonard is coming off a game in which he struggled a bit from the field going just 7-19 from the field, but he still finished with 38 fantasy points. He is usually much more efficient shooting over 63 percent in three of his last five games. Kawhi is the best option at the captain spot tonight because of his consistency and the ceiling he possesses.
Paul George, Los Angeles Clippers
Well, I thought George was going to take the biggest hit from Westbrook coming over but then he came out and dropped 60, 36.5, and 43 fantasy points. George is still a solid option for the captain spot if you can pay for him. Him hitting his ceiling is based on his rebounding. When he scored 60 fantasy points the other night he grabbed 10 rebounds. He could rebound well against this smaller Warriors lineup.
Jordan Poole, Golden State Warriors
Poole is probable heading into this one and should be good to go with a left knee contusion. When he gets it going we know he can go completely bananas. He posted a line of 29-6-5 in the Warriors last game, for 43 fantasy points. The last time he played the Clippers he scored 40 fantasy points. He should have a solid game once again tonight.
Russell Westbrook, Los Angeles Clippers
Russell Westbrook debuted with the Clippers last Friday night. He has been very solid posting 44, 38, and 40 fantasy points. I was honestly surprised by how much Westbrook had the ball in his hands. He has posted two double-digit assist games out of three with the Clippers. You also know he is going to want to get his every night as well.
Draymond Green, Golden State Warriors
When Draymond plays he is going to be effective, especially without Curry in the lineup. He is the guy who makes this offense go right now recording at least five assists in his last six games. He has scored over 30 fantasy points four times over that span as well. Play Draymond tonight.
Donte DiVincenzo, Golden State Warriors
Donte is a big part of this Warriors offense once again with all the injuries. He has played 35 minutes in three straight games and has scored at least 26 fantasy points in each game. At his price of 6K, he should be in your lineup tonight.
Norman Powell, Los Angeles Clippers
Even with the rotation changes we have still seen Powell play at least 25 minutes in two of their past three games. He has struggled from the field the last two games shooting a combined 8-23 and failing to score 20 fantasy points. What we know about Powell is that he wont lose confidence and keep shooting.
Jonathan Kuminga, Golden State Warriors
Kuminga is cheap and he plays at least 25 minutes a night. He has also scored over 20 fantasy points in four of his past five games. Kuminga has been becoming more assertive on the offensive end as well taking at least 10 shot attempts in four of those games.
Anthony Lamb, Golden State Warriors
Anthony Lamb is becoming a solid option at his price of just $2,200. He has scored at least 27 fantasy points in his last three games. It's his rebounding that has helped his fantasy numbers where he has grabbed at least five rebounds in four straight games. Not much ceiling here, but a solid dart-throw option nonetheless.
