The Washington Wizards tripped the Los Angeles Lakers in a 127-25 overtime thriller Monday night, and now face the Lakers’ Staples Center co-tenants — the Los Angeles Clippers — Tuesday as part of the nine-game prime-time NBA DFS slates. Bradley Beal was sensational again Monday, as the NBA’s leading scorer popped for 33 points, seven rebounds and six assists against the Lakers. Does Beal have the juice to do it again as one of Tuesday’s prime NBA DFS picks, or are you better off considering either teammate Russell Westbrook or Los Angeles teammates Paul George or Kawhi Leonard?
If you anchor your NBA DFS lineups with Beal, Westbrook, Leonard or George, you will need to budget wisely with a role player or two that faces a juicy NBA DFS matchup. But with hundreds of thousands on the line in daily Fantasy basketball tournaments, 50-50s and cash games, it pays big to get it right.

Top NBA DFS picks for Tuesday, Feb. 23
One of McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for his Tuesday NBA daily Fantasy lineups is Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo at $11,000 on DraftKings and $11,300 on FanDuel. The Greek Freak is eighth in the NBA with 28.4 points per game, fourth in the league at 11.9 rebounds per game and adds 5.9 assists per outing. That includes a 38-point, 18-rebound, four-assist outburst against Sacramento on Sunday.
Antetokounmpo has been a beast in February, averaging 28.4 points, 12.2 rebounds and 6.4 assists per game. Those efforts have been an NBA DFS boon, too, as he is averaging well over 60 daily Fantasy basketball points per outing in his 12 February games so far. Antetokounmpo and the Bucks get the woeful Timberwolves on Tuesday, a team that ranks 28th defending his position.
Part of McClure’s optimal NBA DFS strategy includes rostering Nets guard Kyrie Irving at $8,800 on DraftKings and $8,800 on FanDuel. Irving is going for 27.7 points, 4.7 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game this season. That includes a 28-point, four-rebound, eight-assist night Sunday against the Clippers.
Irving has thrived with the addition of backcourt mate James Harden in Brooklyn, and has posted an average of over 46 NBA DFS points on DraftKings in his last six outings. Irving loves seeing Tuesday’s opponent — Sacramento — on the other side of the court, as he lit up the Kings for 40 points, four rebounds and three assists on Feb. 15 in an effort that was worth over 56 daily Fantasy basketball points on DraftKings. McClure sees more of the same Tuesday, and recommends Irving in all NBA DFS formats, especially with Kevin Durant (hamstring) still out.
