5/14:Boston Celtics shooting guard Jaylen Brown scored 23 points with eight rebounds, an assist, steal and a block in a win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals. He got everything he wanted, how he wanted and where he wanted it in this game, and Celtic fans will be happy to see the Cavs leave him open throughout the series. Being one of the main scorers with Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward gone, you can count on him and Jayson Tatum in DFS play for this series.--Kyle Reiner Pineda - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
5/14:Boston Celtics power forward Marcus Morris scored 21 points with 10 rebounds in a win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. So much for the talk of wanting to guard LeBron James. Aside from shutting James down, he also managed to put up numbers for himself. He knows guarding LeBron in a seven-game series is tough, but he won Round 1. Game 2 is on Tuesday night, and he can be a cheap DFS play.--Kyle Reiner Pineda - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
5/14:Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard Rodney Hood scored 11 points and had two assists in their blowout loss to the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Sunday afternoon. After refusing to play in garbage time during Game 4 of their series versus the Raptors, Hood is only one of four Cavs players to score in double digits. Expect Hood to be more active in Game 2, as he averages 16 point per game on 48 percent shooting versus the Celtics this season. However, don't put him in your DFS lineups just yet.--Kyle Reiner Pineda - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
5/14:Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love scored 17 points with eight rebounds and three assists in a Game 1 blowout loss to the Boston Celtics on the road. Pretty much no one on the team showed up, and Love was not an exception. He shot 36 percent from the field and the Cavs were discombobulated on both sides of the court. It would be a safe bet to add him in your DFS lineups come Game 3, since you will want to see first how head coach Tyronn Lue will make his adjustments in Game 2, especially for his second go-to scorer.--Kyle Reiner Pineda - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
5/14:Cleveland Cavaliers small forward LeBron James did not put up his usual numbers in Game 1 versus the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals. Averaging almost a triple-double in these playoffs, James only put up 16 points, seven rebounds and nine assists with seven turnovers. For any other player, that would be a good stat line, but if you are the best player in the world, you have got to put up more, especially if your team just got blown out by 25 points on the road. Expect the Cavaliers and LeBron to bounce back in Game 2.--Kyle Reiner Pineda - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
5/13:Golden State Warriors power forward/center Draymond Green has been a key piece for his club thus far in the playoffs and will look to continue this trend against the Houston Rockets. Green has seen an increase in the postseason in nearly every category with averages of 13.1 points, 11.5 rebounds, 9.0 assists and 1.9 steals in 10 contests and to add he leads the playoffs in defensive win shares. We have seen his price tag increase throughout the postseason, but for a good reason and needs a serious look for setting your lineups for Game 1 of the WCF.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn
5/13:Golden State Warrior's shooting guard/small forward Andre Iguodala will look to continue his excellent shooting from deep in the postseason against the Houston Rockets. Iggy has improved his accuracy from deep from 28% in the regular season to 38% in the postseason and has seen his points per game go from 6.0 points to 7.7 points. Iggy will see some time on James Harden and we should see his minutes increase which can only mean more output from the veteran.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn
5/13:Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry will look to lead his team to a fourth consecutive NBA Finals appearance. Curry has played in four games since his return from injury and has averaged a solid 24.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.0 steals in those contests. The Warriors have averaged an insane 111.2 possessions per 48 minutes with Curry on the floor and we can only expect this to continue in this series against the pace-crazy Houston Rockets. Curry's price tag could still be a bargain as he has only played four games this postseason and looks to be a great play for Game 1 as he should be at 100% by now.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn
5/13:Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant looks to find his stroke from three in the upcoming Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets. Durant has shot just 27.9% from deep which is the worst mark among players with at least 50 attempts in the postseason. If it was not for his impressive mid-range game (53-for-87) his offensive output would be much worse. Durant has been excellent everywhere else (8.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.0 block in the postseason) and adding Durant to a roster is never a bad idea.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn
5/13:Golden State Warriors shooting guard/small forward Klay Thompson will look to recover from his shootings woes in the second round of the playoffs. Thompson saw his output take a hit shooting just 38.4% from the floor while averaging 19.8 points in his club's last series. Thompson also saw his numbers take a hit (17.3 points on 44.4% shooting) in the three games this season against the Houston Rockets. Thompson has attempted more catch-and-shoot jumpers (94) than any other player so we know these will start falling soon which makes him an interesting play for Game 1.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn
5/13:Houston Rockets shooting guard Eric Gordon hopes for his shot to start falling after shooting a miserable 34.2% so far this postseason. Gordon has seen his effective field goal percentage sink from 54% during the regular season to a paltry 44% this postseason, which is not a good sign for someone whose value is mainly based on his shooting. If Gordon can get his season form back against the Golden State Warriors (averaged 20.0 points in the three games this season), he could be a major difference maker in this series.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn
5/13:Houston Rockets forward Trevor Ariza will hope to get his rhythm back as he has averaged just 8.7 points on 38.2% thus far in the postseason. Ariza is doing what he does best this postseason by taking 75 of his 76 shots from either the restricted area or 3-point range, so once these shots start falling, his value will return. Ariza actually leads the postseason in total plus-minus with an amazing plus-120. By the numbers, Ariza has still been valuable to his squad, but for DFS purposes, he has not provided what we could have hoped for thus far.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn
5/13:Houston Rockets guard James Harden hopes for his shot to start falling in the Western Conference Finals after shooting just 40.4% in the second round against the Utah Jazz. Harden will be eager to get to his first-ever NBA finals but the Golden State Warriors will do all they can to slow down the heavy usage rate (37% in the postseason) Harden with putting a longer Klay Thompson on him the majority of the minutes. Harden may want to be avoided early on in this series as he has been struggling and Coach Steve Kerr's defensive tactics will be in full force against the superstar.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn
5/13:Houston Rockets forward P.J. Tucker will look to carry over his hot stroke from three into the Western Conference Final against the Golden State Warriors. Tucker was more than impressive connecting on an average of 2.6 of 5.0 attempts from deep in the five games against the Utah Jazz to average 11.8 points in 32.8 minutes. Tucker is leading the postseason with 18 corner threes and has an effective field goal percentage of 65%, up from 52% in the regular season. Tucker's price tag will be a factor to make him a play or not as his DFS points rely heavily on if his shot continues to fall.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn
5/13:Houston Rocket's point guard Chris Paul is eager to get to his first-ever NBA finals and it has shown in his amazing play this postseason. Paul has upped nearly all of his stats in the postseason with only assists taking a minor dip from 7.9 to 6.4 a night. In the three regular-season games against the Golden State Warriors, Paul put up an impressive 21.7 points, 8.7 assists and 8.7 rebounds in those contests. Paul will have the task of slowing down Steph Curry and will not be shying away. Paul is worth a roster spot in Game 1 as he has been playing very well lately and is showing no signs of slowing down.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn
