NBA DFS: Top Celtics vs. Heat DraftKings, FanDuel daily Fantasy basketball picks for May 21, 2022

The 2022 NBA playoffs will continue with Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals on Saturday between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat. The series is tied 1-1 after the Heat took Game 1 decisively and the Celtics dominated Game 2. And NBA daily Fantasy players will have noticed that Marcus Smart appeared to be one major difference between those two performances.

Smart missed Game 1 with a foot sprain but returned in Game 2 to produce 24 points, 12 assists, nine rebounds, three steals and a blocked shot. So should you put Smart in your NBA DFS lineups on Saturday and expect another gaudy stat line, or are there better options in the NBA DFS player pool? Before you make your NBA DFS picks for Heat vs. Celtics Game 3, be sure to check out the NBA DFS advice, player rankings, stacks and top daily Fantasy basketball picks from SportsLine’s Mike McClure.

Now, McClure has turned his attention to the Celtics vs. Heat Game 3 and locked in his top daily Fantasy basketball picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.

Top NBA DFS picks for Saturday, May 21

For Saturday, one of McClure’s top NBA DFS picks is Celtics forward Jayson Tatum. The three-time NBA all-star has been one of the dominant forces in the NBA playoffs 2022, averaging 28.2 points, 6.0 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game, while shooting 45.0 percent from the floor and 38.8 percent from the 3-point line.

In this series, he’s been even more efficient, shooting 52.9 percent from the field and 40.0 percent from beyond the arc. He’s coming off a Game 2 performance where he had 27 points on 8-of-13 shooting and he’s had five 30-point games already this postseason. He’s a high-upside play who has to be in your NBA DFS lineups on any given night in these single-game slates to close out the postseason.

Another part of McClure’s optimal NBA DFS strategy includes rostering Heat forward Jimmy Butler. The six-time NBA All-Star is one of the game’s premier two-way players and, on occasion, he’ll defer to his teammates on the offensive end to focus his efforts on shutting down the opponent’s best perimeter player. But he’s also capable of being a dominant offensive presence when called upon and this series once again proves it.

Butler opened the Eastern Conference finals with a staggering stat line in Game 1, putting up 41 points, nine rebounds, five assists, four steals and three blocks. He shot 12-for-19 from the floor and went 17-for-18 from the free-throw line in that 118-107 win. And while Miami wasn’t as good defensively in Game 2, Butler did not disappoint with 29 points on 11-for-18 shooting while adding six rebounds, three assists and a steal.
