DraftKings main Tuesday night NBA schedule will consist of a six-game slate. While no heavy hitters appear to be facing off, there will definitely be some interesting battles to watch. Trae Young will lead the Hawks into battle against the Knicks in a game that will showcase two of the league’s youngest teams going at it while the Pelicans will host a Kyrie Irving-less Nets team that is also without Caris LeVert (thumb).

The night will be capped off by a matchup between the unexpectedly solid Suns and the new-and-improved Clippers. Phoenix already handed Los Angeles its first lost of the season back in October, but has fallen out of the playoff picture for now. Meanwhile the Clippers are 20-8 and have posted the second-best record in the Western Conference. This time around Los Angeles will be at full strength, as it has added Paul George to its rotation to pair with Kawhi Leonard.

Here are the initial lines for tonight’s six-game slate on DraftKings Sportsbook:

Lakers @ Pacers (+4.5, 210.5) 7:00 p.m. ET
Kings @ Hornets (+4.5, 208) 7:00 p.m. ET
Hawks @ Knicks (-2.5, 221) 7:30 p.m. ET
Nets @ Pelicans (+2, 231.5) 8:00 p.m. ET
Magic @ Jazz (-6, 206) 9:00 p.m. ET
Suns @ Clippers (-12.5, 227) 10:30 p.m. ET

Note: Bets and DFS players will lock at those specific game times.
