DraftKings, FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (6/12/23): Today's Top NBA DFS Lineups

Bam Adebayo - Miami Heat

We're set for what could well be the final NBA DFS slate of the 2022-23 marathon, as the Nuggets are large favorites to prevail in Game 5 and clinch the series in the process.

As customary, we're dealing with DraftKings and FanDuel single-game slates Monday, which feature multiplier spots on both sites (detailed over the course of the article). We'll identify top candidates for each roster spot, as well as other candidates to consider.

This article will provide you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings and FanDuel on 6/12/23. Remember to monitor the NBA injury report as the slate can completely change before the lineup locks at 8:30 pm EST. Good luck, RotoBallers!


DraftKings Captain (1.5x) and FanDuel MVP (2x) - NBA DFS Lineup Picks

Nikola Jokic, DEN ($24,000 DK Captain; $19,000 FD)

Jokic's candidacy for the top multiplier spot is self-explanatory, considering no other player on the floor matches his ceiling. That upside has been demonstrated amply throughout the postseason, and in the Finals with three tallies of greater than 60 fantasy points on DK and two such tallies on FD.

Jokic has proven largely unstoppable for Miami irrespective of scheme or defender, as he's shooting 55.0 percent, including 43.8 percent from distance, during the series. The big man will undoubtedly be heavily involved in a series-clinching scenario for Denver on its home floor, making him the safest play of the night.

Jamal Murray, DEN ($18,000 DK Captain; $14,500 FD)

Murray has been running just behind Jokic in terms of production for the Nuggets throughout the postseason. Were it not for the big man, he'd be a clear-cut Finals MVP favorite. As it is, Murray has recorded at least a double-double in each Finals game, including one triple-double, on the way to averaging over 45 fantasy points on each site.

The Heat are surrendering 48.5 percent shooting on the road during the playoffs. Murray is shooting 41.7 percent from behind the arc thus far in the Finals, brightening his prospects plenty as both a scorer and facilitator.

ALSO CONSIDER: Jimmy Butler, MIA ($17,700 DK, $15,000 FD)

DraftKings Utility and FanDuel STAR (1.5x) Plays - NBA DFS Lineup Picks

Jimmy Butler, MIA ($11,800 DK; $15,000 FD)

Butler is listed as a consideration for the top multiplier spot as well. Given some of the inconsistency he's shown in the series, he might be ideally suited for the FanDuel STAR Spot. The veteran wing is averaging 39.6 FD points per contest during the series, but he's shooting just 44.6 percent overall. There's definitely still plenty of upside there at Butler's salaries, keeping him firmly in play in Miami's do-or-die scenario.

Bam Adebayo, MIA ($9,800 DK; $13,500 FD)

Adebayo has been the Heat's most consistent player in the Finals, producing 22.3 points, 12.5 rebounds, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.0 blocks across 41.3 minutes per game. That's led to three tallies of over 40 fantasy points on either site, including two over 50 on DK. Adebayo should continue to be a major factor on the glass and as a scoring option in the paint, keeping him firmly in play for a second-tier multiplier spot.

ALSO CONSIDER: Aaron Gordon, DEN ($7,200 DK; $12,000 FD)


DraftKings Utility/FanDuel PRO (1.2x) Plays - NBA DFS Lineup Picks

Bruce Brown, DEN ($5,200 DK; $10,500 FD)

Brown enjoyed his best game of the series in Game 4, posting 34.5 DK/34.8 FD points across 30 minutes off the bench. It was the third game of over 20 DK points for Brown in the series. He's shooting 53.1 percent, including 50.0 percent from three-point range, overall in the Finals. With another robust role off the bench likely in Game 5, Brown is back in play at his value salaries.

Kyle Lowry, MIA ($5,000 DK; $9,500 FD)

Lowry has been productive throughout the Finals, scoring over 25 FD points in three of the games and over 24 on DK in three instances. The veteran is shooting 48.1 percent, including 41.2 percent from three-point range, while averaging 10.5 points, 5.0 assists, and 2.8 rebounds per contest. Lowry has averaged a rock-solid 28 minutes off the bench during the Finals as well, giving him a seemingly solid floor at his salaries.

ALSO CONSIDER: Michael Porter Jr., DEN ($6,200 DK; $9,000 FD); Caleb Martin, MIA ($5,800 DK, $10,000 FD)
