4/30:Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert attempted just four shots in his club's Game 1 loss to the Houston Rockets. Gobert was able to connect on all four of his attempts from the floor to finish with 11 points and was able to haul down nine boards on the night. His stat line looks better then he actually played as he did not attempt his first field goal until 8:35 remaining in the fourth quarter and was outplayed by Clint Capela throughout the game. We can expect the Jazz to make some changes to have their big man more involved offensively and we can only imagine he bounces back in Game 2.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn
4/29:Golden State Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson scored a team-high 27 points 10-for-22 shooting in Saturday's Game 1 win over New Orleans. Thompson also added six rebounds, two assists, and two blocks. Steph Curry (knee) could be back for Game 2, but if he sits again then Thompson can be expected to put up another strong game. Even with Curry back, Thompson's three point shooting gives him immense upside, though the Pelicans have played strong perimeter defense this season.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: Basketball Reference
4/29:New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday is one of the key players in the Pelicans attempt to upset the Golden State Warriors in the second round, but he wasn't able to get anything going in Game 1 of the series. Holiday finished with 11 points on 4-for-14 shooting. He added four assists and three rebounds as well. The Pelicans will need more production from Holiday, who was solid in four regular season games against the Warriors, if they want to make noise in this series.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: Basketball Reference
4/29:New Orleans Pelicans point guard Rajon Rondo filled the stat sheet in Saturday's Game 1 loss to the Golden State Warriors. The veteran guard finished with nine points on 4-for-10 shooting and added eight rebounds and 11 assists, as well as a steal and a block. Rondo is still one of the league's most gifted passers, but his inconsistent scoring can make him a frustrating player in DFS lineups. The Warriors prolific offense means that New Orleans can't afford to let Rondo take too many shots if he gets cold.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: Basketball Reference
4/29:New Orleans Pelicans power forward Anthony Davis scored 21 points on 9-for-20 shooting in Saturday's Game 1 loss to the Golden State Warriors. It was Davis's worst scoring performance of these playoffs after the Pelicans star had been an unstoppable force in New Orleans's first round sweep of Portland. Davis also grabbed 10 rebounds, swiped away three steals, and blocked a pair of shots. He's likely to have a bounce back effort in Game 2, especially when his 33 points per game in the regular season against the Warriors is factored in, but the Warriors might have found a way to limit Davis and keep him from putting up the huge stat lines that he's capable of.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: Basketball Reference
4/29:Utah Jazz point guard Ricky Rubio (hamstring) will not play in Game 1 versus the Houston Rockets on Sunday. Rubio could miss 10 days or even the entire round, according to ESPN and other sources. He strained his hamstring in Game 6, but this is an injury that Rubio has dealt with before. Royce O'Neale is expected to draw the start and is a solid DFS option. Alec Burks should see more time off the bench and Donovan Mitchell should have more upside without Rubio.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Salt Lake Tribune
4/29:Houston Rockets forward Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) believes he'll be ready to play in Sunday's Game 1 contest with the Utah Jazz. "I’ve done some stuff, workouts, a little bit of practice. I’m ready in my mind," said Mbah a Moute. He'll still need to be cleared by the training staff, but remains questionable for Sunday. Mbah a Moute is an elite defender, so getting him back would be huge for Houston.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Houston Chronicle
4/29:Cleveland Cavaliers guard George Hill (back) will play in Game 7 against the Indiana Pacers on Sunday. Head coach Ty Lue has not announced the starters, but it is assumed that Hill is going to draw the start at point guard. Hill has missed the last three games, so it's unclear if there are any restrictions for Sunday's contest.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Rick Noland
4/29:Houston Rockets forward Trevor Ariza will be busy chasing around Donovan Mitchell in his club's second round matchup against the Utah Jazz. Ariza was the primary defender on the rookie in their four regular season games, holding Mitchell to 44% effective field goal percentage and more turnovers (seven) than assists (4) on those possessions. Ariza was actually better then his averages in those contests seeing a spike in points (12.0) and field goal percentage (44.7%). Ariza will be an excellent play if his price tag is right as he will play a large role at both ends in this series.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: nba.com
4/29:Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul will look to continue his excellent regular season play against the Utah Jazz in their second round matchup. Paul averaged an impressive 17.0 points, 10.0 assists and 8.3 rebounds in his three games he suited for against the Jazz on the season. Paul has found success with attacking the rim in this postseason averaging 9.6 points in the paint, but Paul will have to adjust as Rudy Gobert's presence will be evident. Paul is eager for some playoff success, so we should see the best out of the Point God and is worth a look on any night.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn
4/29:Houston Rockets guard James Harden was his usual self dominating the first round series against the Minnesota TImberwolves. Harden as well excelled against the Utah Jazz on the season averaging 34.3 points, 6.8 assists with 6.3 rebounds on 55.4% shooting from the floor with him scoring 56 points back on November 5th. With Ricky Rubio to miss some time, Donovan Mitchell and Joe Ingles will most likely split time on Harden and will hope to slow down his 37.0% usage rate thus far in the playoffs. We can expect a monster series from Harden and is worth building a team around on any night.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn
4/29:Houston Rockets center Clint Capela will have his hands full being matched up with Rudy Gobert in his club's second round series against the Utah Jazz. Capela was outstanding in the first round averaging 15.8 points and 14.2 rebounds and he was the only player to have played at least 100 possessions while being able to grab at least half of his team rebounds while he was on the court. These amazing numbers will definitely take hit with Gobert matched up against him, but he is an intriguing play as he doesn't need many touches to fill the stat sheet.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: nba.com
4/29:Milwaukee Bucks point guard Eric Bledsoe finally showed his true ability in Game 7 against Boston, shooting 9-for-12 from the field on his way to 23 points, but the effort didn't matter in the end as they suffered a 112-96 loss. He averaged only 13.6 points in the series, shooting barely over 30 percent from deep, so his offensive production was needed much earlier. Bledsoe still has a year left on his contract, but the fit at Milwaukee didn't seem like the perfect one, and as a 28-year-old he really shouldn't be showing signs of slowing down. He won't be a very attractive fantasy option in 2018-19 if he stays there.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
4/29:Milwaukee Bucks small forward Giannis Antetokounmpo had a decent outing in Game 7 against Boston with 22 points, nine rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block, but it would've been a much better one if he hadn't been limited by foul trouble. He picked up three fouls pretty quick and finished the game with five fouls, which didn't allow him to be very aggressive on the night. Giannis cooled off quite a bit during the latter half of the series, but it's hard to criticize him for it as he just has to do so much for the team. After falling at the first hurdle, Antetokounmpo will be aiming to get even better during the offseason.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
4/29:Milwaukee Bucks small forward Khris Middleton had another great shooting performance in Game 7 against Boston, scoring a game-high 32 points on 11-for-18 shooting, but it wasn't enough to keep the side alive. He did his part, but the team needed just a little bit more from everybody else. Middleton was superb throughout the series, making nearly 60 percent of his shots and actually even 61 percent from deep to average 24.7 points with 5.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists. After already taking a huge step forward in 2017-18, don't be surprised if he ends up being an All-Star next year.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
