DC screwed it (ID# 2764)
  • Klay Thompson scores 26 points in loss
    Klay Thompson scored 26 points on 9-of-17 shooting in Game 4 vs. the Thunder with five rebounds, one assist, three steals and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was held to four points in the first half and got into some early foul trouble, but his 19-point explosion in the third quarter nearly got the Warriors back into the game. It obviously wasn't nearly enough in the end, as the Warriors were outscored 24-12 in the fourth. If the Warriors are going to take away any positives from this nightmare showing, it's that maybe Thompson will be able build off this momentum for Game 5. Rotoworld.com 47 minutes ago
  • Draymond Green held to six points in loss
    Draymond Green was held to six points in Tuesday's Game 4 loss to the Thunder, shooting just 1-of-7 from the field.

    Advice: For the first time this season, the Warriors have finally lost two games in a row and it comes at the worst possible time. As for Green, he was nearly suspended by the league for his kick to Steven Adams' groin in Game 3, so the OKC crowd let him hear it all night. Green hasn't played well in this series and it didn't get any better tonight, turning the ball over six times in 38 minutes with 11 rebounds, two assists, one block and three steals.

  • Serge Ibaka scores 17 points in win Tuesday
    Serge Ibaka scored 17 points in Tuesday's win over the Warriors, shooting 7-of-11 from the field.

    Advice: Steven Adams was playing through a tweaked ankle and Enes Kanter wasn't producing, so Ibaka had to step up tonight and he didn't disappoint. This was his second strong performance in a row and he added seven rebounds, two blocks and one 3-pointer, outplaying all of Golden State's bigs in the process. After losing minutes to Kanter in the series against San Antonio, Ibaka has played 30 or more minutes in all four games in the Western Conference Finals. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:10 pm
  • Roberson scores 17 w/ 12 boards, 5 steals
    Andre Roberson scored 17 points with 12 rebounds, three assists, five steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes in Tuesday's Game 4 win over the Warriors.

    Advice: The Warriors hacked him several times and he hit just 2-of-8 free throws, but this was arguably the best game of his career. The points were a career high and he shot 7-of-12 from the field, and you have to love the minutes. This big game obviously puts him firmly on the DFS radar due to his low price, though he was averaging just 4.4 points in the postseason prior to Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:05 pm
  • Kevin Durant scores 26 points in Game 4 win
    Kevin Durant scored 26 points on 8-of-24 shooting in Tuesday's Game 4 win over the Warriors.

    Advice: The Thunder scored 72 points in the first half for the second straight game and the Warriors weren't able to recover. As for Durant, he had an incredible line with 11 rebounds, four assists, four steals, three blocks and one 3-pointer, though he did have a few turnovers. This was his second straight game with three blocks and his defense has been on full display in this series. The Thunder could advance to the NBA Finals with a win on Thursday in Game 5 as the series shifts back to Golden State. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:52 pm
  • Warriors will not make a lineup change
    The Warriors will not make a lineup change for Game 4 vs. the Thunder on Tuesday.

    Advice: Warriors coach Steve Kerr may have considered a lineup change with either Harrison Barnes or Andrew Bogut moving to the bench in favor of Andre Iguodala or Festus Ezeli, but Golden State will stand pat for now. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:00 pm
  • Report: Kerr could tweak starting five for G4
    Steve Kerr may adjust his starting lineup for Tuesday's Game 4 against the Thunder, according to Scott Ostler of the San Francisco Chronicle.

    Advice: Media members asked Kerr about a potential lineup switch on Monday and Tuesday, but Kerr would not give any indication whether he's leaning one way or the other. Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut have not been very effective through the Western Conference Finals, and with the Dubs in must-win territory, there's a chance Kerr tweaks his starting five. Andre Iguodala or Festus Ezeli would be the most likely to enter the starting five should Kerr make a change, although if a change were to occur, it’s unlikely we’d get word until just prior to tip-off. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:41 pm
  • Channing Frye could play more in Game 5?
    Tyronn Lue said that he likes the space-the-court lineup "a lot," and he could use it more moving forward in hopes of limiting Bismack Biyombo's production.

    Advice: Lue has been steadily increasing Channing Frye's minutes throughout the Eastern Conference Finals, and it sounds like Frye's minutes could be in the 25-minute range for Game 5, which could result in less run for Tristan Thompson and Kevin Love. Love hasn't been playing very well at all over the past two, so he'll be a bit of a risky DFS play for Game 5. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:10 pm
  • Kevin Love all systems go for Game 5 on Weds
    Kevin Love (knee) is healthy enough to play in Game 5 against the Raptors on Wednesday.

    Advice: Love hurt his knee after stepping on a referee's foot in Game 4 on Monday, but isn't worried about his status for Game 5. "I think Kyrie [Irving] was shooting towards the end of the third quarter, and I stepped on the official's foot, and it didn't feel too great," said Love. "More so the knee [than the ankle hurting]. Will be sore tomorrow, but nothing that will prevent me from playing." While Love's performance in Toronto left something to be desired, he should be able to return to form with the series heading back to Cleveland on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:24 am
  • Vogel: Aaron Gordon has tools to succeed
    Magic head coach Frank Vogel said Aaron Gordon has the tools to succeed in the NBA.

    Advice: This will make the "Free Aaron Gordon" crowd happy. "Aaron Gordon has the tools to succeed in today's NBA," Vogel said in an interview on SiriusXM NBA. After a season during which former Magic head coach Scott Skiles played yo-yo with Gordon's minutes, the 20-year-old could have a breakout 2016-17 season under Vogel after averaging 11.1 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 0.9 steals, and 0.7 blocks as a starter in 2015-16. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:04 am
  • Thanasis Antetokounmpo could head to Greece
    Panathinaikos is interested in Thanasis Antetokounmpo, according to Sportando.

    Advice: Talks haven't progressed to an advanced stage, but Giannis' brother could head overseas after an insignificant stint with the Knicks. We'll keep an eye on the situation, but Lower Case can be ignored in all fantasy leagues at this point. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:01 am
  • DeMar DeRozan praises Lowry's Game 4 play
    DeMar DeRozan praised Kyle Lowry's performance in Monday's Game 4 win over Cleveland.

    Advice: "It's a cake walk for me once he gets going," DeRozan said. "It opens up everything for me on the floor. Teams try to focus in on him, and he knows when to get me going. He got the ball, he's our point guard, he's our leader of this team and he knows how to orchestrate what needs to be done out there." While Lowry had a great game on Monday, DeRozan's second consecutive 32-point performance helped the Raptors even the series. He seems to be getting over the thumb injury that hampered him earlier in the playoffs and should continue be a big factor for the Raptors for the rest of the postseason. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:46 am
  • Lue explains Kevin Love's fourth quarter DNP
    Cavs head coach Ty Lue said he didn't play Kevin Love in the fourth quarter of Game 4 because Channing Frye was playing well.

    Advice: Love was dealing with a bit of a knee issue after stepping on a referee's foot, but Lue's explanation didn't involve the injury. "To try to put Kevin back in with four minutes to go in the fourth quarter in a hostile game, hostile environment, it's not fair to him," Lue said. "Channing gave us a great lift off the bench, and we just rolled with it." While Lue's explanation doesn't make much sense, he should still be in the starting lineup for Game 5 and will likely see more than the 31 minutes he saw in Game 4. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:36 am
  • Kevin Love said he hurt his knee
    Kevin Love (knee) said he hurt his knee stepping on an official's foot at the end of the third quarter on Monday.

    Advice: Coach Ty Lue said he thought it wasn't fair to put Love back in the game, so that's two straight fourth quarters without any Love. Lue added Love not playing in the fourth didn't have to do with his injury. The former All-Star should still be in the starting lineup and heading back home figures to help, too. Many were concerned about Love's inconsistent play and now it's coming to fruition. As long as he can make shots, he'll get time. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:29 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan scores 32 points again in win
    DeMar DeRozan scored 32 points for the second straight win over the Cavs on Monday, adding three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two turnovers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: A big story for the Raptors was their free throw shooting. They became the first Conference Finals team since 2001 to not have a free throw in the first half with a 15-plus point lead, but then they went to the line 19 times in the second half as a team. As for DeRozan, he continues to thrive on contested shots and even fared better against LeBron James as the game went on -- he scored 12 in the fourth quarter on 5-of-6 from the field. We'll see how he handles playing in Cleveland on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:52 pm
  • LeBron James scores 29 points in Game 4 loss
    LeBron James couldn't carry his team to victory during a 105-99 loss to the Raptors in Game 4 on Monday, scoring 29 points with nine rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 46 minutes.

    Advice: It looked like the Cavs were going to pull off a huge comeback with 11 consecutive makes in the fourth quarter. James' fourth quarter numbers alone were eight points, four rebounds, three assists and one steal, but he didn't score in the final five minutes. James' 46 minutes tonight were his most of these playoffs, but the Cavs were smoked in the two minutes without him with a minus-60.0 net rating. The fourth quarter was the story with the Cavs with LeBron playing the entire fourth while none of the other starters played more than 6.3 minutes. After destroying the Raptors in the Game 1 and 2, this series is all tied up at two. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:42 pm
  • Channing Frye picks up 21 minutes
    Channing Frye played 21 minutes off the bench against the Raptors on Monday with 12 points, six rebounds, one assist and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: He played down the stretch and was a big reason for a fourth quarter charge. The Cavs are using him at center to help open things up and keep Bismack Biyombo away from the rim. Plus, Kevin Love isn't making shots and can't rebound right now. Frye might hit 25 minutes in Game 5. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:15 pm
  • No Love: Kevin doesn't play in fourth again
    Kevin Love did not play in the fourth quarter against the Raptors on Monday, finishing with 10 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: He did look to hurt his left leg at the end of the third. Love didn't go to the locker room, so we'll be looking for an update. After Game 3, coach Ty Lue said it wasn't fair to play Love down the stretch, so maybe it was the same story. He hasn't played well at all in this series and is losing playing time to Channing Frye. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:06 pm
  • Anthony Bennett working out with Nets
    Anthony Bennett is expected to work out at the Nets' minicamp this week.

    Advice: This would be arguably the best spot for him, so he's going there to impress. The Nets have some major depth issues at power forward behind Thaddeus Young and they don't have a first-round pick either. Obviously he'll have to show strong conditioning at the workout and likely would have to have a monster summer league. For what it's worth, the UNLV product typical been great at Vegas. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:25 pm
  • Draymond Green not suspended for Game 4
    Draymond Green will not be suspended for Game 4 on Tuesday.

    Advice: He was fined $25,000 and the foul has been upgraded to a flagrant 2. The NBA likely ruled that Green didn't intend to kick Steven Adams in the groin during Sunday's blowout. Green has a knack for kicking his leg out to draw a foul, so the NBA likely thought it was just unlucky for Adams as Green tried to sell the foul too hard. He'll be in the starting lineup in a huge game at Oklahoma City. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:14 pm
  • Sam Dekker has no restrictions
    Sam Dekker (back) said he is 100 percent and has zero restrictions.

    Advice: Dekker added on his Twitter account he has been playing basketball over the past month. Dekker played a grand total of six minutes in his rookie season and failed to score on a 0.0 usage rate. Even with a new coach, Dekker won't be a fantasy factor in his sophomore season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:23 pm
  • Kerr: Draymond Green must re-focus himself
    Steve Kerr said that Draymond Green needs to re-focus himself.

    Advice: "He needs to re-focus a little bit. He'll admit it. It was not one of his best games. In fact, it was one of his worst," Kerr said. After a total dud in Game 3 with six points, four rebounds and three assists on 1-of-9 shooting, Green has to be a whole lot better in Game 4 assuming he avoids suspension. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:33 am
  • G. Antetokounmpo desires to play for Greece
    Giannis Antetokounmpo is hopeful to play for Greece this summer.

    Advice: "I want to play for the national team," he said. "The Bucks know it. We have not talked yet for this matter. Even if they are negative, I would try to convince them to let me play". Milwaukee will likely want their franchise building block to rest this summer in order to prepare for the workload coming his way next season, but it sounds like he's intent on being allowed to play. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:58 am
  • T. Antetokounmpo desires to play for Greece
    Thanasis Antetokounmpo is hoping to play for the Greek national team this summer.

    Advice: The "other" Antetokounmpo appeared on Nigeria's pre-selection roster, but he recently voiced his desire to play for Greece. "I called them and told them that I want to play for Greece. I grew up in Greece, I am feeling Greek and that’s my dream," he said. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:55 am
  • Andre Roberson stays hot from deep, scores 13
    Andre Roberson started again on Sunday and had 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting with three 3-pointers, six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Roberson is 8-of-13 from downtown in his past four games and the Warriors have dared him to beat them from the arc -- tonight Andrew Bogut began as his primary defender, and when Draymond Green has him he frequently roams to the opposite side of the court. Roberson did a good job cutting hard and moving without the ball, rewarding Billy Donovan's decision to keep him in the starting lineup. He'll be on Golden State's radar in Game 4. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:00 pm
  • Draymond Green struggles, earns Flagrant-1
    Draymond Green struggled badly during Sunday's loss in Oklahoma City, finishing with six points on 1-of-9 shooting, four boards, three assists and four turnovers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: The Warriors looked unusually rattled after Green picked up a Flagrant-1 foul in the second quarter, letting a close game to turn into a 25-point deficit heading into halftime. They gave up 117 points through three quarters, the most allowed in a playoff game since 1987, and compounded their defensive struggles with lackadaisical shot selection. The league will likely review Draymond's flagrant, which he earned for kicking Steven Adams in the crotch, so DFS owners should double-check that he's available for Game 4. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:57 pm
  • Serge Ibaka plays well as small-ball center
    Serge Ibaka posted 14 points, eight rebounds, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes on Sunday, helping the Thunder earn a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference finals.

    Advice: He shifted to center for long stretches, an interesting wrinkle from Billy Donovan, and the move seemed to spark Ibaka as he finished the first quarter alone with seven points -- matching his average from Games 1 and 2. He's a staple of the rotation, whether the Thunder are going big or small, though limited usage makes it hard to trust him in DFS. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:55 pm
  • Andre Iguodala solid in futile bench effort
    Andre Iguodala came off the Warriors' bench on Sunday for nine points, four boards, three assists, two steals, two 3-pointers and just one turnover in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Last year's Finals MVP continues to have a big impact despite having very few plays called for him -- in Games 1 and 2 he had a 13.6 percent usage rate, higher than only Shaun Livingston, Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut. His efforts weren't nearly enough tonight, and his minutes were limited by garbage time, but he should resume playing 28-32 minutes on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:51 pm
  • Kevin Durant has 33 pts in Game 3 blowout win
    Kevin Durant scored 33 points during OKC's blowout Game 3 home win, making 10-of-15 field goals and 12-of-12 free throws in 32 minutes of action.

    Advice: Before the game, coach Billy Donovan said KD needed to make "quick reads" with "sharp and crisp [passes]" to counter the Warriors' flood of double- and triple-teams. He did all that and more to help his team reclaim the series lead while maintaining home court advantage. His DFS owners went home nearly as happy as OKC's fans, as he rounded out his line with eight boards, two assists, three blocks and just one turnover. Durant appeared to tweak his right calf in the third quarter but it didn't cost him much time and we're leaving him off the injury report for Game 4. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:41 pm
  • Lue wants LeBron James more involved in Gm 4
    Tyronn Lue said that he should have called more plays for LeBron James during Saturday's Game 3 loss to the Raptors.

    Advice: "I think I should have called more plays to make [James] dominant," Lue said. "I should have put the ball in LeBron's hands a little bit more to let him create and let him draw double teams. So that was more on me." James only attempted 17 shots during the Game 3 loss, and his usage rate dipped to 17.5 through the fourth quarter, which is a trend that's unlikely to continue. Expect James to take on a more dominant role on offense for Monday's Game 4. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:27 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan still dealing w/ pain in thumb
    DeMar DeRozan said that while his right thumb is improving every day, he's still experiencing pain.

    Advice: To be clear, this is just something that DeRozan is going to have to deal with, and he's in zero danger of the injury forcing him to the sidelines. DeRozan had himself an efficient outing during Toronto's Game 3 win over Cleveland, scoring 32 points on 12-of-24 shooting, and the Raptors will need him to continue that trend if they hope to secure a Game 4 win on Monday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:51 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan scores 32 in Game 3 victory
    DeMar DeRozan scored 32 points during a 99-86 Game 3 win over the Cavs on Saturday, adding five rebounds, four assists and no turnovers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: He was 12-of-24 from the field and hit plenty of contested jumpers. In fact, he had 22 of his 24 shots contested during this win. This was DeRozan's second postseason game of his career without any turnovers and played fairly mistake-free ball on both ends. The Cavs used LeBron James on DeRozan late in the game, so that might be something to watch early in Game 6. DeRozan will need to be on his game on Monday to get another win. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:52 pm
  • LeBron James scores 24; Cavs lose Game 3
    LeBron James scored 24 points during a 99-84 loss to the Raptors in Game 3 on Saturday, adding eight rebounds, five assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

    Advice: He did not get much help tonight as the Cavs failed to score 100 points for the first time this postseason. James was fouled throughout the game, but one of the most talked about plays will how he fell down after Tristan Thompson hit him (video in link below). The Cavs also lost their first postseason game with LeBron, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:17 pm
  • Lil' Kev: Love scores three points in loss
    Kevin Love made just 1-of-9 from the field for three points against the Raptors on Saturday, adding four rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

    Advice: He had a really off night and didn't even close this game out. Love has played above expectations for basically the entire postseason, so he gets a pass for this one. Expect him to be better in Game 4 and closer to his 33 playoff minutes per game. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:01 pm
  • Adams says Green has peaked with annoyingness
    Steven Adams said Draymond Green has "peaked with annoyingness" on defense.

    Advice: Adams and Draymond are quote machines and are also known for their physical styles on the defensive end on the court. Green has also gone through practices to prepare for bad calls and said he'll try to lure Adams into a technical foul. The Warriors have used Green on Andre Roberson at times to use him as more of a roaming defender. Additionally, the Warriors didn't use Green at center too much in Game 2 with only two minutes of their death lineup. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:14 pm
  • LeBron James triple-doubles in 108-89 victory
    LeBron James triple-doubled during a 108-89 win over the Raptors on Thursday, scoring 23 points with 11 rebounds, 11 assists, three steals and two turnovers.

    Advice: It's his 15th playoff triple-double of his career and he also passed Shaquille O'Neal for fourth on the NBA's all-time playoff scoring list. James continues to get to the rim at will and he's now 17-of-19 on his shots from within three feet. On the other hand, he's struggled at the line and is just 11-of-21 from there in these two games. The Cavs are 10-0 in this postseason and have won 17 straight playoff games against the Eastern Conference over the last two postseasons. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:38 pm
  • Kevin Love scores 15 points in win
    Kevin Love scored 19 points with five rebounds, three assists, one block and one 3-pointer against the Raptors on Thursday.

    Advice: He did most of his damage in the first half with 15 points. Love was on a stationary bike during this game, but he didn't appear to have any interaction with his medical staff. The Cavs have not lost any playoff games with LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving. Expect Love to flirt with 20 points in Game 3 on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:30 pm
  • Andre Iguodala hits video-game layup in Gm 2
    Andre Iguodala led the Warriors' second unit on Wednesday with 14 points (4-of-10 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), three rebounds, three steals and one assist in 26 minutes of action.

    Advice: Iguodala hit one 3-pointer and he was surprisingly efficient at the FT line, but his offensive highlight was a double-pump, and-one layup which you can marvel at via the link below. OKC was a dominant rebounding team during the regular season but tonight Golden State won the battle, 45-36, including 15 offensive boards. The stage is set for an epic Western Conference finals. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:10 pm
  • Kevin Durant scores 29 pts, commits eight TOs
    Kevin Durant racked up a game-high 29 points during Wednesday's loss, shooting 11-of-18 from the field, but he also committed eight turnovers in 35 minutes.

    Advice: He was on fire as a shooter in the first half, but atypically careless turnovers prevented the Thunder from building any significant momentum. Credit is due to Golden State's swarming defense, and OKC will need to get more from their supporting players to earn a Finals berth -- Serge Ibaka scored three points on 1-of-6 shooting tonight, and non-Durant players combined to shoot just 40.0 percent from the field. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:06 pm
  • Klay Thompson shoots 5-of-17 for 15 points
    Klay Thompson made just 5-of-17 shots to finish Wednesday's home victory with 15 points, two rebounds, four assists, one steal and two turnovers in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Klay's defense on Russell Westbrook was exemplary, however, and he could have had a bigger game if the score weren't out of hand -- Golden State led by as many as 33 points in the fourth quarter. The Warriors shot 50.6 percent from the field, including 46.4 percent from downtown, and they still haven't suffered consecutive losses during the 2015-16 season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:50 pm
  • Draymond Green ready to bounce back in Game 2
    Draymond Green said he's ready to show everyone what the Warriors are made of with a Game 2 bounce back performance.

    Advice: "When you can bounce back from something like this, it makes it all the more sweeter," said Draymond of the Warriors conceding Game 1 to OKC. "I’m relishing this opportunity. This is where you see what you’re really made of. This is where you bounce back and everybody is against and don’t think you can do it and... This is where it gets fun for us." The Dubs have the right mindset going into Game 2, but they'll need to do a better job of executing on offense if they hope to even up the series at one a piece on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:16 am
  • LeBron James not worried about complacency
    LeBron James said he's not worried about the Cavs getting complacent after dominating their first nine games of the postseason.

    Advice: "I don't think we have complacency on our minds right now," James said. "We have a goal, and our goal was not nine wins... And as the leader of this team, I'm going to continue to make sure that these guys understand what our goal is, and they know." The Cavs have made a mockery of the Eastern Conference, but James will consistently remind his teammates that a championship is the ultimate goal. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:29 am
  • DeMar DeRozan scores 18 points in loss
    DeMar DeRozan scored 18 points on 9-of-17 shooting in Tuesday's loss to the Cavaliers with five assists and three turnovers in 35 minutes.

    Advice: He was Toronto's best player tonight, but that's not saying much. The Raptors lost by 31 points and the game was basically over at halftime, but it's worth noting that Toronto also lost Game 1 of their first two series against Indiana and Miami as well. We'll see if DeRozan can help his team steal Game 2 in Cleveland on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:38 pm
  • Kevin Love scores 14 points in Game 1 win
    Kevin Love scored 14 points with four boards, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Raptors in Game 1.

    Advice: He didn't play much due to the blowout, so his streak of eight games in a row with a double-double ended. Love shot 4-of-8 from the field tonight and is now shooting 44.8 percent from deep in the postseason, so he's peaking at the perfect time for the Cavs. "That’s what we all hoped we would see in Kevin," Coach Tyronn Lue said of Love's recent play. "He’s a great player. I believe he’s a top-10 player in this league and he knows it." Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:15 pm
  • LeBron James scores 24 in Game 1 win
    LeBron James scored 24 points in Tuesday's 115-84 win over the Raptors in Game 1, shooting an efficient 11-of-13 from the field.

    Advice: DeMarre Carroll was the primary defender on him tonight, but James couldn't be stopped and had his way on the offensive end. He added six boards, four assists, one block and two steals, and he didn't even touch the floor in the fourth quarter due to the lopsided score. The Cavs are still undefeated in the postseason and look like a serious force right now. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:12 pm
  • Green says he needs to be better in Game 2
    Draymond Green said that he needs to put forth a better defensive effort for the Warriors during Game 2.

    Advice: "I don't think I was myself on the defensive end last night," said Green. "I wasn't flying around like I normally do. I've got to be better." Additionally, Green said that the Dubs need to do a better job of keeping Russell Westbrook off the free throw line, but acknowledged that it's something easier said than done because OKC's All-Star point guard is such an athletic force. Draymond will also likely be conceding some touches on the offensive end to Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson during Game 2. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:33 pm
  • Kevin Durant not ready to celebrate yet
    Kevin Durant said he and his teammates aren't celebrating their Game 1 win over Golden State on Monday as they know they have more work to do.

    Advice: The Thunder upset the defending champs on the road to take Game 1, but Durant said the Thunder still have a lot to prove. "We're playing in the Western Conference finals against a great team," Durant said. "We got a 'W' the first game, but there is a lot of basketball to be played, so we can't be too excited. It was a good win for us, but we're not going to be jumping up and down, chest-bumping on the court. We've got a lot more basketball to play." Durant only shot 10-of-30 from the field on Monday, so we should expect a better shooting performance out of KD in Game 2. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:08 am
  • Kevin Durant takes 30 FGAs, scores 26 points
    Kevin Durant made 10-of-30 from the field for 26 points against the Warriors on Monday, adding 10 rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block, one 3-pointer and five turnovers.

    Advice: It was a sloppy first half for Durant with a few careless turnovers. Durant saw a host of different defenders with Andre Iguodala on him towards the end of the game. He also only saw five minutes at power forward in this game, which actually wasn't successful for OKC. Plus, if Durant missed 20 FGAs in most games, the Thunder would likely be losing those contests. Durant lit the Warriors up during the season with 36.3 points per game, so the Thunder have to be beyond pleased to get a win. Expect better efficiency and possibly lower usage in Game 2.

  • Serge Ibaka looks a lot better vs. Warriors
    Serge Ibaka turned it around against the Warriors on Monday, scoring 11 points with 11 rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

    Advice: He wasn't really closing when OKC thumped the Spurs in the fourth quarter in the last series, but the Thunder really need Ibaka out there for spacing on offense and all the switching they'll need to do against the Warriors pick-and-roll plays. He did have a big game against the Warriors earlier in the year with a 15-point, 20-board line, so he's certainly capable of another productive outing in Game 2. Rotoworld.com May 16, 9:22 pm
  • Andre Roberson is actually decent in win
    Andre Roberson made all three shots from the field for seven points against the Warriors on Monday, adding five rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes.

    Advice: To open the game, the Warriors had Draymond Green "covering" Roberson, but Green was really just playing safety to really focus on weak-side help. After a bad first half, Roberson started out strong in the second half. There's a decent chance this is his best scoring output in this series with his tidy efficiency, so he's not really a viable DFS punt. Rotoworld.com May 16, 9:12 pm
  • Klay Thompson scores 25 points in Game 1 loss
    Klay Thompson scored 25 points during a 108-102 loss to the Thunder on Monday, adding nine rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: It looked like Klay was going to have a monster game with 19 first-half points, but he fizzled out late. Coach Steve Kerr put Thompson on Kevin Durant more often in the second half, which may have been the culprit after the break. The Warriors only had 14 points in the fourth quarter and 42 points in the second half to set 2016 postseason lows. Thompson being a two-way player will be a big part of his postseason role, but his DFS output will depend on his scoring. His nine rebounds are his second-best total in a postseason game for his career, as well. Rotoworld.com May 16, 9:10 pm
  • Draymond Green takes 20 FGAs, drops 23 points
    Draymond Green made 9-of-20 from the field and 5-of-9 from the line for 23 points with five rebounds, four assists, two blocks, one steal and two turnovers in 40 minutes against the Thunder on Monday.

    Advice: The Thunder had a somewhat similar strategy to what coach Terry Stotts did in the previous rounds. Green was left open on occasion to allow the Thunder to pressure Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson more off the ball. The Warriors should be making an adjustment here because Green having more total shots than Stephen Curry (22 field goal attempts, two free throw attempts) shouldn't happen. His four assists also tied for his worst output in these playoffs. Whatever the case, Dray will be posting big stat lines. Rotoworld.com May 16, 9:04 pm
  • Andre Iguodala plays 33 minutes, scores six
    Andre Iguodala scored six points with five rebounds, four assists, three steals and one turnover in 33 minutes against the Thunder on Monday.

    Advice: He didn't play quite as much as expected and wasn't Kevin Durant for all of his minutes against him. Coach Steve Kerr might be making an adjustment to use Iguodala more often in Game 2, so he should be able to play more minutes with similar per-minute output. Rotoworld.com May 16, 8:50 pm
  • Draymond Green says his ankle feels 'fine'
    Draymond Green said that his left ankle feels "fine" and he's ready for the Western Conference Finals.

    Advice: "My ankle is fine," he wrote. "A little sore, but it feels a whole lot better than it felt Wednesday night. I will just continue to get treatment, stay in the gym and get ready for Monday. But my ankle feels fine and it's playoff time. It is what it is at this point." Although Green is unlikely to be 100 percent at any point in the postseason, you could say that for just about everybody still participating. Rotoworld.com May 16, 7:03 am
  • DeMar DeRozan scores 28 points on 29 shots
    DeMar DeRozan needed 29 shots to score 28 points during Sunday's Game 7 victory over the Heat, adding eight boards, one assist and three turnovers through 35 minutes of play.

    Advice: DeRozan went just 12-of-29 from the field and 4-of-7 from the stripe, giving him an unimpressive true shooting percentage of 43.6 on the evening to go with his gaudy 41.7 usage rate. Efficiency has been a major issue for DeRozan throughout the playoffs so far (34.9 percent from the field), and that inefficiency could prove to be too much to overcome as the Raptors go toe-to-toe with the Cavs in the Eastern Conference Finals.

  • Lue says burden on James has been minimal
    Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said that the burden on LeBron James in the playoffs has been minimal so far.

    Advice: "LeBron is letting the game come to him," Lue said. "When he wants to be aggressive and he sees fit to be aggressive when the teams have a good run or whatever they may have, then he just takes over the game ... And with Kyrie [Irving] and Kevin [Love] playing at a high level, he can take a lot of mileage off of his body, reduce his [usage] rate and just kind of seeing and figuring out the flow of the game." James will make his sixth consecutive appearance in the Eastern Conference Finals and will take on the winner of Game 7 between the Raptors and the Heat on Sunday. Rotoworld.com May 15, 6:35 am
  • Draymond Green practicing not getting techs
    Draymond Green said he was practicing not getting technical fouls when coaches made bad calls during scrimmages.

    Advice: This is great. Green was asked if he's preparing for Steven Adams to try and lure him into a tech. "I'm sure he'll try. I may get him one," Green said. Draymond leads the postseason with four techs, so he's on pace to be suspended after a seventh tech. This will be something to watch, but at least Green knows he has to be careful this time. After all, this comes from a guy who said he saved money before the season for his upcoming technical fines. Rotoworld.com May 14, 1:29 pm
