The NBA DFS player pool for Game 3 of Bucks vs. Hawks is loaded with talent. Despite scoring just 15 points in Atlanta's lopsided loss on Friday, Trae Young is expected to be among the top NBA DFS picks on Sunday. Young enters Sunday's pivotal matchup averaging 29.4 points, 9.9 assists and 2.9 rebounds per game in the 2021 NBA Playoffs. He recorded a double-double in Atlanta's Game 1 victory, producing 48 points and 11 assists to go along with seven rebounds.
Young is among the most expensive NBA DFS picks on Sunday, so rostering him means finding plenty of value elsewhere in the NBA DFS player pool. Should you build your NBA DFS lineups around Young, or should you look elsewhere when finalizing your NBA DFS strategy? Before locking in any NBA DFS picks for Bucks vs. Hawks, be sure to see the NBA DFS advice, player rankings and top daily Fantasy basketball lineups from SportsLine's Mike McClure.

The result: Paul went off for 18 points, four rebounds and seven assists in an 84-80 Game 4 victory, returning over 33 points on DraftKings and over 32 points on FanDuel. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on the way to a profitable day.
Now, McClure has turned his attention to the Sunday, June 27 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 Sunday, June 27
One of McClure's top NBA DFS picks for Sunday is Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo. Antetokounmpo is scoring 28.9 points, pulling down 13.2 rebounds and dishing 5.5 assists during the 2021 NBA Playoffs. Antetokounmpo went off for 25 points, nine rebounds and six assists in Friday's Game 2 victory against the Hawks.
The two-time NBA MVP predictably shined in the regular season, dropping 28.1 points, 11.0 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game. Antetokounmpo is delivering for NBA DFS owners, too, dropping over 60 points per game in his last five outings on DraftKings. Antetokounmpo went for 28.6 points, 11.2 rebounds and 5.7 points on the road in 2020-21, and McClure sees that trend continuing at Phillips Arena on Sunday evening.
Part of McClure's NBA DFS strategy also includes rostering Hawks guard Kevin Huerter. Huerter has scored in double-figures in three of his last four outings, which includes a 27-point outburst against the 76ers in a decisive Game 7.
He's coming off a disappointing performance in Atlanta's setback in Game 2, finishing with just eight points, two rebounds, one assist and one block. However, he's proven capable of exploiting Milwaukee's defense this season. In fact, Huerter stuffed the stat sheet with 20 points, three assists, two rebounds and a steal against Milwaukee in a 111-104 Hawks victory in April. He's also scored double-digit points in four of his last five games at home, which bodes well for his NBA DFS value on Sunday.
