Welcome to the last day of the 2014-15 NBA season! Let's celebrate the end of another great year of basketball by joining together in a one-day fantasy basketball tournament, presented by FanDuel, SB Nation, and Raptors HQ!
There are a whopping 14 games on the NBA's final regular season slate tonight, including your Toronto Raptors at home to face the Charlotte Hornets. As the Raptors go for a franchise record in wins, you could go for $10,000 by playing in our final tournament of the season.
One last time, here are the details:
- Click here to play in Wednesday's tournament ($2 to play, $125,000 in prizes, $10,000 for the winner).
- Click here to sign up for FanDuel (if you haven't already) and you'll get a 100 percent first time matching deposit bonus (up to $200) for being a Raptors HQ reader.
- If you're discussing the tournament on Twitter, use the hashtag #FanDuelSBN.
- If you want to know more about FanDuel, check out our initial post about the game and how it works.
It's hard to know who will play and who will rest tonight for Toronto, so picking a Raptor for your lineup could be difficult. That said, how about:
Kyle Lowry ($7,700)
Lowry has shot an abysmal 28.3 percent from the field and 17.6 percent on three-pointers in his three games played since returning from a seven-game absence due to back spasms. Luckily, FanDuel doesn't count shooting percentages and his 12.7 points, 7.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.3 blocks, and 2.3 turnovers over that span were still good enough for a passable 28.1 fantasy points per game. Lowry needs to prove that he can shake off the rust and lead this Raptors team in the playoffs, so there's a good chance that tonight he breaks his slump in a big way versus Charlotte. He's averaged 24.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 6.0 assists in his two games played against the Hornets this season, so why not take one last chance on our All-Star this season?
Well, that's it. Thank you so much for playing along with me, Raptors HQ, SB Nation, and our sponsor FanDuel this season. Now, let's go on down to the comment section one last time and build some winning lineups for old time's sake!
Best of luck!

All of the opinions in this post are my own, and as an FYI, FanDuel gave me some cash to play its daily fantasy games.
