Damian Lillard is off to a slow start this season as his 18.6 points per game is a career-low. The six-time All-Star is also struggling with his shot, knocking down just 34.9 percent of his field goal attempts, which is also the worst mark of his career. Can Lillard turn things around on Wednesday if you roster him in your NBA DFS lineups? He’ll get a great opportunity vs. the Cavaliers at 7 p.m. ET, as Cleveland just allowed LaMelo Ball to go off for 30 points on Monday.
Will Lillard be the latest point guard to torch the Cavs’ defense, making him one of Wednesday’s top NBA DFS picks? Or will his struggles continue, forcing you to look elsewhere for value in the NBA DFS player pool?

Now, McClure has turned his attention to the Wednesday, November 3 NBA DFS slate and locked in his top daily Fantasy basketball picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.
Top NBA DFS picks for Wednesday, November 3
One of McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for Wednesday is Warriors guard Stephen Curry at $11,100 on DraftKings and $10,100 on FanDuel. The two-time MVP is coming off a 20-point, six-assist, five-rebound performance against the Thunder and he put up those stats in just 27 minutes.
After winning a scoring title last season, Curry is again leading the NBA in points per game this year. He’s averaging 28.7 points, 6.5 assists and a career-high of 7.5 rebounds. He gets another great matchup vs. the Hornets on Wednesday night. The Hornets are allowing 115.0 points per game this season, which is the second-most in the league, so expect another big scoring night from Curry.
Another key in McClure’s optimal NBA DFS strategy includes rostering Magic center Mo Bamba ($6,600 on FanDuel and $7,300 on DraftKings). Bamba’s four double-doubles this season have already matched his total from all of last season. He is averaging career-highs across the board with 12.5 points, 9.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.1 blocks per contest.
There’s only one defense that’s giving up more points than Charlotte and that’s the Boston Celtics at 119.7 points allowed per game. Bamba gets the luxury of facing Boston on Wednesday and could be in line for a career night. That is especially the case because the game will take place in Orlando and Bamba performs better at home. He’s averaging 14.5 points and 10 rebounds per game at the Amway Center compared to 11.8 points and 8.8 rebounds on the road.
