There are 12 NBA games tonight and 24 of the league's 30 teams are in action (including some guy named LeBron coming to Toronto), so what better time to have another exclusive FanDuel tournament for Raptors HQ and SB Nation readers and writers?

As you've probably noticed, we're rolling out tournaments like this all season long, so keep checking back for new opportunities to play together within the Raptors HQ and SBNation communities and maybe win yourself some cash in the process.

If you want to discuss the tournament with other players via Twitter as you play, be sure to use the hashtag #FanDuelSBN so we can all follow along together.

Here are some thoughts on the best Raptors in play tonight:

Raptors FanDuel Plays for Tonight vs. the Cavaliers

Top play: Kyle Lowry ($9,100) has been a must-play FanDuel guy since DeMar DeRozan went down. He has topped 50 fantasy points (FP) in each of his last three games on the strength of 31.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 8.7 assists, 2.0 steals, 0.3 blocks, and only 2.0 turnovers per game. On Wednesday, as you might remember, he hung a career-high 39 points on the Jazz. The Raptors are a solid offensive team and the Cavaliers' defense is suspect, so expect a lot of points in this one with Kyle leading the charge.

Bargain play: Greivis Vasquez ($4,800) is one of the best cheap options at point guard in the whole NBA tonight and likely will be every time the Raptors play until FanDuel raises his price. He has started three straight games in place of DeRozan and has a hot streak going back five games now, in which he has had a floor of 25.6 FP and an average of 27.7. Over that stretch, his 16.6 points, 2.6 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 0.8 steals, and mere 1.4 turnovers per contest have made him a hard guy to sit. Other bargain plays include Lou Williams ($4,900) and James Johnson ($4,000), but they've traded off productive games over the last three and Vasquez's newfound consistency might be easier on your stomach.

To recap: sign up here for a 100 percent deposit bonus, join tonight's tournament here and use the promo code SBNRAPTORS for a chance at the $500 in prizes, and hashtag along on Twitter using #FanDuelSBN.
