5 months agoToronto Raptors guard Fred Vanvleet kept things going on Saturday when he nailed four more triples en route to 14 points in the 100-94 win over the Bucks in Game 6. VanVleet added two dimes and made five of six from the floor overall while being a team-best plus-12 in his 34 minutes of action. Danny Green again was a non-factor and this led to heavy minutes again for the VanVleet. He has averaged 16.0 points on a ridiculous 82.4% shooting from the three in his last three games and will be heavily relied on in the finals when his club takes on the Warriors.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

5 months agoMilwaukee Bucks guard/forward Giannis Antetokounmpo connected on 7-for-18 shooting to score 21 points in the Game 6 series-ending loss to the Toronto Raptors on Saturday. The Raptors once again did an excellent job at containing the Greek Freak by throwing multiple players at him throughout the night and he again struggled from the line by making just five of 10 shots. Antetokounmpo had a monster season and could very well be the MVP, but he needs to work on some things in order to get to the next level. Either way, we know he will come back stronger and faster next season and he will be the top pick in many fantasy drafts in the 2019-20 season once again.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

5 months agoMilwaukee Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe scored just eight points and added seven assists in the 100-94 Game 6 loss to the Raptors on Saturday night to end the series. Bledsoe also grabbed five rebounds with a steal as he made just three of nine shots from the floor in 30 minutes of action. After scoring 20 points in Game 5, Bledsoe was unable to keep the offense going in this one. Bledsoe had a rough series averaging just 10.2 points on 29.2% shooting from the floor but we can assume he will return to his solid fantasy production next season making a solid guard to have on any squad.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

5 months agoMilwaukee Bucks shooting guard/small forward Khris Middleton started the game hot as he nailed a couple of triples early on and three total from deep in the first quarter, but then cooled off for the rest of the night. Middleton finished the night with 14 points on 5-for-13 shooting and added four boards and nothing else in 41 minutes of action. Middleton struggled on the offensive end throughout this series and with a player option on the table for Middleton for next season, we can expect him to opt out to test the free-agent waters. But, we can assume he will be back in a Bucks uniform, but who knows.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

5 months agoMilwaukee Bucks center Brook Lopez provided a valiant effort in the 100-94 Game 6 loss to the Raptors on Saturday in Toronto. Lopez made some big baskets on the inside in the final quarter and provided solid interior defense on the other end. Lopez finished the night with 18 points and nine rebounds while swatting away three shots across 34 minutes of action. Lopez was possibly the best player in a Bucks' uniform on this night and after a brilliant season and a tremendous postseason, there will be many suitors lining up this offseason in hopes of picking up one of the best 3-and-D center's in the league.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

5 months agoGolden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala (calf) did not practice on Friday, but plans to play in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. It doesn't sound like this calf injury is serious, and Iggy should be ready for Game 1. Kevin Durant (calf) is most likely going to be sidelined for the beginning of this series. Iggy will be asked to play some big minutes in the Finals without Durant available.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Connor Letourneau

5 months agoGolden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins (quad) was able to go through a scrimmage on Friday. Head coach Steve Kerr said that Cousins looks good, but they still haven't announced a timetable for his return. Cousins has made fantastic progress lately and honestly could have a chance at playing in Game 1 or 2.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Nick Friedell

5 months agoGolden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (calf) has not been able to do on-court work yet. Durant is unlikely to suit up for Game 1, and it's unclear if he's even going to play in the Finals. The Warriors are going to be careful with Durant, so they won't rush him back on the court. Durant is a free agent after the season, so he's going to pick his career over playing in the Finals. Stay tuned for more information once a timetable for his return is announced.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Anthony Slater

5 months agoToronto Raptors shooting guard/small forward Kawhi Leonard bounced back after a quiet 19 points in Game 4 to score a team-high 35 points in the big road win on Thursday in Game 5. He added seven rebounds with nine assists and two steals as he dominated down the stretch making big shots and having some solid defensive plays. Leonard still looked to be favoring his left leg and continued to apply heat packs to his left quad on some timeouts. We can assume the issue is not too serious and we can expect him to come out firing in Game 6 on Saturday in hopes of closing out the series.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

5 months agoToronto Raptors point guard Fred Vanvleet played hero on Thursday when he went off for 21 points off the bench in the 105-99 win over the Bucks in Game 5. VanVleet found his rhythm from three where he nailed 7-for-9 and connected on 7-for-13 shooting overall with one assist and a steal in 37 minutes of action. The timing could not have been better with Danny Green struggling in this series and VanVleet has now connected on 10 of his last 12 three-point attempts over his last two games after making just three of 24 in his previous nine games. He will be a popular play on Saturday in DFS assuming he can keep his hot hand going.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

5 months agoToronto Raptors shooting guard/small forward Danny Green missed some shots early on and never got things going in the Game 5 win to the Bucks on Thursday. Green missed all three of his shots and did not score while he added just a single rebound and a single steal to his line in 16 minutes of action. The Raptors went with a Kyle Lowry and Fred Vanvleet backcourt for much of the night with VanVleet catching fire. Green is averaging just 4.3 points a game on 21.4% shooting from the floor in this series and with this, he should be avoided in Game 6 back in Toronto on Saturday.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

5 months agoToronto Raptors forward Pascal Siakam started slowly as he had two fouls early on and struggled from the floor, but he still managed to provide a full line in the 105-99 win over the Bucks. Siakam scored 14 points on 5-for-15 shooting and added 13 rebounds with two assists and three blocks with a steal. Although he was a bit quiet on the offensive end, he provided some crucial blocks and played a large part again in slowing down Giannis Antetokounmpo. Siakam has struggled on offense much of this series but has still been provided solid supporting numbers to his lines, so keep him on your radar for Game 6 on Saturday.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

5 months agoMilwaukee Bucks guard/forward Giannis Antetokounmpo provided 24 points with six rebounds and six assists with two blocks in 39 minutes of action in the Game 5 loss to the Raptors. Antetokounmpo tweaked his right ankle late in the game and was not on the court for some crucial possessions in the game's final moments. He did finish the game on the court and looked okay. The Raptors once again did a superb job containing the Greek Freak from getting momentum with getting to the hoop and he again struggled at the line making just 4-for-9. The Bucks will need to make some serious adjustments if they plan on returning back to Milwaukee for a Game 7.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

5 months agoMilwaukee Bucks shooting guard/small forward Khris Middleton struggled with his shot on Thursday but still managed a double-double, but with rebounds and assists in the Game 5 loss. Middleton could not find his groove with his shot as he nailed just 2-for-9 from the floor for just six points but salvaged his night with 10 rebounds and 10 assists. Middleton was coming off a sizzling 30 point performance in Game 4, but consistency again took it's a toll on Middleton as he was nowhere to be found on the offensive end in this one. He is a tough play for Game 6 as we do not know which Middleton will show up.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

5 months agoMilwaukee Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon moved back into the starting unit for Game 5 on Thursday and he provided a full line in 34 minutes of action in the six-point loss to the Raptors. Brogdon scored eight of 18 points in the first quarter and added 11 rebounds with six assists and a steal with three turnovers. Brogdon was arguably the Bucks' best player on this night as he was a team-best plus-22 while he was on the floor and we can assume he will remain in the starting unit for Game 6 back in Toronto on Saturday.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
