Bradley Beal, SG, Washington Wizards
Back-to-back games with at least 60 fantasy points say it all. Beal is carrying this Wizards team and doing it all, averaging 31.3 points, 9.5 rebounds, 9 assists, and 2.5 steals over the past two. He already had a couple of pretty nice games against the Magic this season so I expect him to top his averages.
Steph Curry, PG, Golden State Warriors
Curry is having mediocre games by his standards lately but facing a rival without Kevin Durant, Read More
1.) By A Wide Margin
As in wiiiidddddeeeee!
James Harden is the league's leader for total points scored at 2,006. The second behind him is Paul George at 1,650, which is a 356-point gap. And if you're wondering how many of those are free throws-- it's 546, which is about 27% of his total point production.
2.) All-Star Lineup?
On paper, a lineup of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, and DeMarcus Cousins may very well be the best. It seems like defenses are adjusting Read More
1. KD (and Draymond) couldn't guard LeBron.
Basically, nobody could touch LeBron in Game 1 as he went off for a playoff career-high 51 points. But KD, Bron's primary defender, allowed him to score 30 points on 10-for-15 shooting.
To be fair to KD, Draymond Green didn't do a better job, either. Green was LeBron's primary defender in eight possessions, and James scored eight points on 4-for-6 shooting.
Apparently, the Dubs need Iggy real quick or LeBron will probably average 45 in this series.

Building a DFS roster in the NBA Playoffs proves to be trickier than most nights but we welcome the challenge. Here are 3 players that should not be missing on any lineups for the two-game slate this Friday:
Draymond Green, PF/C, Golden State Warriors
Call DG what you want, but you can make a case for him as the Warriors' MVP so far in the playoffs. The 2017 DPOY is averaging a triple-double in the WCSF series (18 points, 12.0 rebounds, 11.5 assists, 2.0 steals, 2.0 blocks and 1.5 3-pointers) and Read More
Only 2 games to pick from tonight, but 3 of the 4 teams are loaded with fantasy talent. I took Joel Embiid in my DFS draft last night and he scored 90+ points. Let’s see if we can pick out some similar gems for tonight’s matchups.
Tier 1: Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Kyrie Irving
My Choice: Kyrie Irving, PG, BOS
Boston’s defense is legit; they have the 2nd best defensive rating relative to league average since 1976. Jump shooters are just 16 for 51 from behind the three-point line against Read More
It's Russell Westbrook's last game for the 2016-17 season so this will be a tribute of some sorts to the future MVP.
