The NBA season rolls on tonight, bringing fans some exciting matchups. If you're looking for some advice for your NBA FanDuel lineup tonight, The Duel is here to help.

And be sure to checkout our nightly against the spread (ATS) picks as well.

Without further ado, here are three players to target and two to avoid in Tuesday, 5/4, NBA DFS action.

FanDuel Picks Tonight NBA

Giannis Antetokounmpo Fantasy

Target Giannis Antetokounmpo, PF, Milwaukee Bucks ($11,400): Giannis Antetokounmpo torched the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday for 75.6 FanDuel fantasy points. He's got another favorable matchup against Brooklyn tonight. The Nets allow an Eastern Conference worst 116.9 points per road game. Both the Bucks and Nets are likely to score a ton of points. These two teams combined for 231 points on Sunday and 248 earlier in the year. Antetokounmpo should be able to take advantage of this Nets defense and is worth his steep price.

LaMelo Ball Fantasy

Target LaMelo Ball, PG, Charlotte Hornets ($6,200): LaMelo Ball returned from his wrist injury and stepped right back into the same form pre-injury. In his first two games back the Rookie of the Year frontrunner eclipsed 35-plus FanDuel fantasy points including a 38.7 fantasy point performance on Sunday. Ball is a great value add here at $6,200.

Delon Wright Fantasy

Target Delon Wright, PG, Sacramento Kings ($5,200): Delon Wright is going to see his usage boom thanks to the Sacramento Kings dealing with injuries to De’Aaron Fox, Harrison Barnes and Tyrese Haliburton. He scored 30-plus FanDuel fantasy points against the Los Angeles Lakers last week and will continue to find the ball in his hands with these injuries. Wright is another excellent value add against the troubled defense of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Kevin Love Fantasy

Avoid Kevin Love, PF, Cleveland Cavaliers ($5,900): Kevin Love suffered a bizarre performance against the Washington Wizards on April 30. He didn't record a single point or field-goal attempt and put up a lowly 10.5 FanDuel fantasy points. Love rebounded against the Miami Heat with 33.7 fantasy points on Saturday, but he'll face a tough defensive matchup with the Phoenix Suns tonight.

Deandre Ayton Fantasy

Avoid Deandre Ayton, C, Phoenix Suns ($6,300): Deandre Ayton continues to struggle with three-straight games failing to register at least 30 FanDuel fantasy points. He'll also be tasked with scoring against a stud defender in Jarrett Allen. Allen's defensive should be able to slow down the interior scoring effort of Ayton and the Suns.
