We go over some of the best teams to stack for DFS on DraftKings for Saturday’s slate in first round of the 2021 NBA playoffs.

Saturday’s playoff slate features four series headed in different directions. The Milwaukee Bucks are looking to seal a sweep of the Miami Heat while the Philadelphia 76ers will also be trending in that direction looking to grab a 3-0 lead over the Washington Wizards. The Portland Trail Blazers will try to level their series with the Denver Nuggets in Game 4 while the Utah Jazz and Memphis Grizzlies look to grab a 2-1 lead after Game 3.

Sometimes with a plus-matchup on the NBA game slate, we get an opportunity to slot multiple players from the same team into our DFS lineups. You can read more about the concept of stacking here, but the main goal is to take advantage of this plus-matchup and use the salary cap to your advantage.

Here, we’ll break down three of the best team stacks on Saturday, May 29th for the 2021 NBA playoffs slate.

Nuggets vs. Trail Blazers, 4:00 PM ET

Michael Porter Jr., $7,200
Aaron Gordon, $5,300
Austin Rivers, $4,300

Nikola Jokic continues to dazzle for Denver, but the Nuggets have enough of a supporting cast to find value in DFS. Porter Jr. and Gordon continue to elevate their games and Rivers is coming off a strong shooting performance in Game 3. This series has plenty of offense to go around and all three players above should deliver major value at their respective price points.

76ers vs. Wizards, 7:00 PM ET

Joel Embiid, $9,800
Ben Simmons, $7,600
Tobias Harris, $7,100

Harris should be available for Game 3 after tweaking his ankle in Game 2 and will look to continue his strong start to the playoffs. The Wizards don’t have an answer for Embiid or Simmons, so expect Philadelphia’s star trio to rack up the points. The value might not be there, but the return will be strong.

Jazz vs. Grizzlies, 9:30 PM ET

Donovan Mitchell, $8,200
Joe Ingles, $5,500
Bojan Bogdanovic, $6,300

The Jazz are at 100 percent after Mitchell’s return and should operate efficiently, even on the road. Mitchell is a lock to light up the scoreboard and Ingles will provide strong contributions off the bench. Bogdanovic cooled off in Game 2, but expect him to see significant touches in Game 3 as the Jazz look to turn things up to take a lead in the series.
