Wednesday’s main NBA slate on DraftKings will include nine games with tip-off times ranging from 7:00 p.m. ET to 9:00 p.m. ET. Some teams on the slate are loaded with fantasy potential, and we’ve identified a could worth keeping an eye on.

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 for the NBA slate on Wednesday, May 5th.

Phoenix Suns vs. Atlanta Hawks, 8:00 p.m. ET

Devin Booker ($8,300)
Chris Paul ($7,500)
Mikal Bridges ($5,400)

Booker and Paul had off nights when the Suns took down the Hawks earlier this year and have a shot at redemption after securing an impressive overtime win against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday. Booker, Paul, and Bridges’ numbers were inflated by overtime on Tuesday, but all three scored at least 48 DKFP against the Cavs. The best team in the Western Conference is playing great basketball amid its five-game winning streak and each member of the trio has eclipsed their DKFP average at least three times during that span. The Hawks have below-average defenders at both guard positions and small forward, so its highly unlikely that the Suns will bust a second time against them.

Sacramento Kings vs. Indiana Pacers, 8:00 p.m.

Domantas Sabonis ($10,600)
Caris LeVert ($8,800)
TJ McConnell ($5,700)

Sabonis has taken on a massive workload with Myles Turner (foot) out. The big man has tallied more than 74 DKFP in two straight games and will face a Kings defense that ranks 26th against centers on DraftKings. He’s more of a triple-double threat than usual with Malcolm Brogdon (hamstring) out, but LeVert has answered the call by averaging 47.5 DKFP during the starting point guard’s two-game hiatus. Sacramento’s abysmal defensive backcourt got worse when Tyrese Haliburton (knee) went down with an injury, and McConnell’s steady stream of assists and steals can break a slate with the proper exposure.
