Sleeper Fantasy is offering hundreds of picks options for each and every game of the NBA Playoffs. On Friday night, the Minnesota Timberwolves and Dallas Mavericks take center stage for Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals.

Dallas picked up a road victory in Game 1, besting Minnesota 108-105 behind 33 points from Luka Doncic and 30 from Kyrie Irving.

In Game 1, former Kentucky star and 2015 No. 1 overall pick Karl-Anthony Towns didn’t have his best game, scoring 16 points on 6-of-20 shooting, grabbing 7 rebounds and dishing out 2 assists. He’ll need to be better for the Timberwolves to win Game 2 on Friday night at 8:30 p.m. ET on TNT.

But he won’t need to be better for DFS enthusiasts to win big on their contests tonight! That’s because Sleeper is offering a free square to new users on Friday night. All KAT has to do is score at least 1 point and you can win that leg of your entry.

My Picks For Timberwolves-Mavericks Game 2

Karl-Anthony Towns, Minnesota Timberwolves: Higher than 0.5 points

As mentioned above, Towns scored 16 points in Game 1, but was inefficient with his shooting. He’s a streaky scorer, but one thing he always does is score at least 1 point. This is a safe pick to make, as KAT will be counted on to score 20+ points for Minnesota as the Timberwolves try to even the Western Conference Finals at 1-1.

Naz Reid, Minnesota Timberwolves: Higher than 15.5 points+rebounds

The Sixth Man of the Year is a spark plug off the Minnesota bench. He posted 20 points+rebounds (15 points, 5 boards) in Game 1. Dallas’s second unit doesn’t really have a great stopper for Reid, so if he continues to bring the energy, which he always does, he should be effective in Game 2. I expect him to have a few more rebounds in Friday night’s matchup while still keeping his scoring numbers up.

Luka Doncic, Dallas Mavericks: Higher than 28.5 points

Doncic scored 33 points in a Game 1 win. The Timberwolves don’t really have any defenders who can match Luka’s size, so he could be in for a big series. The smart thing for Chris Finch and his coaching staff to do would be to figure out how to limit Kyrie Irving. Let Luka score his points, but keep Kyrie and the other Dallas players from doing too much damage. If the Timberwolves employ that strategy (as I suspect they will), that means Doncic should be good for 29+ points on Friday night.

How Many Picks Should You Make?

I’m not a first-time Sleeper user, so I don’t have access to the KAT 0.5 points pick. But I did the following 3-pick contest for Game 2. As you can see, it pays out $27.05 on a $5 entry (a 5.41x multiplier) should all 3 of my picks be correct:

I generally prefer to keep my contests around 3 or 4 picks, but you can craft a multiplier of up to 100x should you choose to do so. Just make sure you get your picks in before tipoff on Friday night so you can try to win big!
