Cleveland Cavaliers vs Golden State Warriors – 6/11/15 NBA Playoff Fantasy Sports, Basketball Picks, Odds & Predictions

 

The NBA Finals will return after one day of rest as the Golden St Warriors look to break a two game losing streak against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 4. Cleveland will be at home on Thursday June 11th and follow fantasy league roster performance at 9PM Eastern Time on ABC TV.

Through the first three games of the NBA Finals the Golden St Warriors have been unable to reach 100 points after a full four quarters of play. They face a similar spot in the playoffs they had in Round 2 as the team fell behind 2-1 against Memphis with Game 4 on the road at the Grizzlies home court. The Warriors with their backs to the wall responded with three straight wins all by double digits including two wins on the Grizzlies home court in that span to win the series in six games.

After shooting 44% in Game 1 the Warriors have gone ice cold from the field hitting 40% in Game 2 and Game 3. Golden St has lost the rebounding battle in the past two games all resulting in losses. A positive note for the team is they were able to get Stephen Curry going as his outside shots were going in during their attempt to come back in the fourth quarter.

Cleveland needs to do a better job of finishing games in the fourth quarter. The Cavaliers saw leads reduced in each game but in Game 3 were able to avoid an overtime period with clutch shooting by LeBron James and Matthew Dellavedova. The Cavaliers guard Dellavedova had to spend the night in the hospital after Game 3 as he showed symptoms of dehydration after playing 39 intense minutes.

1 day fantasy footballCleveland Cavaliers Point Guard: Kyrie Irving is your only option here for Cleveland but is he out for the remainder of the playoffs.

Cleveland Cavaliers Shooting Guard: After his Game 3 performance it looks like the NBA fantasy value is on Matthew Dellavedova at this position. Dellavedova had 20 points on Tuesday and the reports are positive for a quick recovery from dehydration.

Cleveland Cavaliers Small Forward: LeBron James put up 40 points in Game 3 and he continues to carry this team. So far there have been no signs of fatigue yet as King James continues to log in heavy minutes by choice in these playoffs. James has played 142 of a possible 151 minutes in these NBA Finals. These minutes are from a player who has played in five straight finals.

Cleveland Cavaliers Power Forward: Kevin Love is the only option at this position for the Cavaliers. Love is out for the season with a shoulder injury.

Cleveland Cavaliers Center: Timofey Mozgov after 17 points in Game 2 had just six points in Game 3. His rebounds dipped to five but he did block four shots on Tuesday. Another option here is center Tristan Thompson who is logging minutes with the Love injury. Thompson provides the best fantasy value at center for the Cavaliers because of his consistency on the glass. He is averaging 13 rebounds per game in the finals and contributed with 10 points in Game 3.

1 day fantasy sportsGolden St Warriors Point Guard: Stephen Curry bounced back from a 5 of 23 shooting game in Game 2 by hitting 50% of his shots on Tuesday. He contributed for his mock draft owners with six rebounds and six assists.

Golden St Warriors Shooting Guard: Klay Thompson shoots much better at home than on the road. He was just 6 of 16 in Game 3 and had 14 points which were 20 fewer points than he scored in Game 2.

Golden St Warriors Small Forward: Draymond Green continues his shooting slump. After a 2 for 10 shooting night in Game 3 he is 8 of 30 from the field in the NBA Finals. He has averaged eight rebounds per game in this series.

Golden St Warriors Power Forward: David Lee finally saw action in the NBA Finals. He has fresh legs and was 4 of 4 from the floor with four rebounds and 11 points in 13 minutes of play. Expect Lee to continue to see floor time in this series.

Golden St Warriors Center: Andrew Bogut has his hands full defensively trying to clog the basket and help on LeBron. He has scored just 10 points total over the three games and is averaging eight rebounds. He had a series low 17 minutes on Tuesday.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Golden State Warriors – 6/9/15 NBA Playoff Fantasy Sports, Basketball Picks, Odds & Predictions

The NBA Finals will return on Tuesday June 9th as the Cleveland Cavaliers are hosting the Golden St Warriors for Game 3. Check out your one day cash league fantasy team’s scoring on ABC TV for the telecast from Cleveland at 9PM Eastern Time.

Game 2 marked the second consecutive overtime period in the Finals as the Cleveland Cavaliers even the series at 1-1 with a 95-93 road victory. Cleveland was able to steal Game 2 with Kyrie Irving out and the point guard will miss the rest of the series with a broken kneecap.

LeBron James played 50 minutes and scored 39 points. James dished 11 assists and grabbed 16 rebounds for a triple double. LeBron James fantasy value could be impacted moving forward by the amount of minutes he has logged in thus far. James has played 97 of the possible 106 minutes in these NBA Finals. There is only one day of rest for Game 3 and on Monday the teams had to make the long flight from Golden St to Cleveland. It will be interesting to see if LeBron looks to facilitate more to his teammates in the first half to save his energy for the end game.

The Warriors are a deeper team and have more options offensively so fatigue would be less likely to impact their performance. The team also shot poorly and figures to bounce back from a bad game. They also have game film of the Cavaliers playing without Kyrie Irving on the court and will look for ways to exploit them.

1 day fantasy footballGolden St Warriors Point Guard: Stephen Curry looks to bounce back from a 5 of 23 shooting from the field in Game 2. He was just 2 of 15 from three. Film study should make an impact here as Matthew Dellavedova played heavy minutes on Sunday guarding Curry.

Golden St Warriors Shooting Guard: Klay Thompson had his shooting stroke in Game 2 as he converted on 14 of 28 shots as he scored 34 points. That was a bounce back from a 5 of 14 shooting game in Game 1. Curry breaks down the Cavs defense then Thompson will get open looks at the basket.

Golden St Warriors Small Forward: Draymond Green had only seven shot attempts on Sunday and finished with 10 points. His shot is not falling as he is a combined 6 of 20 in the playoffs. Green had ten boards in Game 2 and that still makes him productive for fantasy league owners.

Golden St Warriors Power Forward: The power forward position is a weak spot on both clubs for picking fantasy rosters. David Lee for the third straight game had no minutes. The good news is that Lee is fresh and could be a factor as there are few rest days in these Finals.

Golden St Warriors Center: Andrew Bogut had just one shot attempt on Sunday. The big man won’t get much offensively but his ten rebounds Sunday produced fantasy value for league owners.

1 day fantasy sportsCleveland Cavaliers Point Guard: Kyrie Irving is out for the season with broken knee cap.

Cleveland Cavaliers Shooting Guard: Matthew Dellavedova, Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith are listed as shooting guards for the Cavaliers. J.R. Smith leads the trio with 13 points per game in the playoffs. His shots are not falling in this series as he is a combined 8 of 26. Shumpert is 4 of 17 from the floor in the NBA Finals. Dellavedova didn’t take a shot in Game 1. He saw 42 minutes in place of Kyrie Irving and shot 3 of 10 on Sunday.

Cleveland Cavaliers Small Forward: LeBron James numbers have been outstanding in the Finals. The question is can he maintain this production without feeling the effects of fatigue as there isn’t much rest between the two games held in Cleveland.

Cleveland Cavaliers Power Forward: Kevin Love is out for the season with a shoulder injury.

Cleveland Cavaliers Center: Timofey Mozgov and Tristan Thompson are seeing time in the center position and are helping to fill the void for Kevin Love. Mozgov had 17 points and 11 rebounds in Game 2 and is producing more at this position offensively for Cleveland.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Golden State Warriors – 6/7/15 NBA Playoff Fantasy Sports, Basketball Picks, Odds & Predictions

1 DAY FANTASY SPORTS NBA cash fantasy league roster managers have difficult decisions to make in Game 2 of the Finals when the Golden St Warriors face the Cleveland Cavaliers. Follow your rosters on Sunday June 7th at 8PM Eastern Time from Oakland California over ABC TV.

The Golden St Warriors are up 1-0 in this series as they defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-100 in overtime at home. The game was tied at 98-98 after four quarters then the Warriors went on a 10-0 run in overtime as the Cavaliers playing their starters heavy minutes wore down and missed a lot of jump shots.

Terrible news for the Cleveland Cavaliers as they lose point guard Kyrie Irving for the rest of the season with a broken knee cap. Irving was the second leading scorer on the team with 19 points per game in an average of 35 playoff minutes per game. With the loss of Irving that means Matthew Dellavedova will get the start and J.R. Smith will pick up more minutes. LeBron James will most likely handle the ball a bit more on the court. Irving’s defense will be greatly missed as Dellavedova doesn’t have the lateral foot speed to rotate and disrupt the Warriors jump shooters.

1 day fantasy footballCleveland Cavaliers Point Guard: Kyrie Irving is out for the season due to a broken kneecap.

Cleveland Cavaliers Shooting Guard: J.R. Smith will be asked for more offense with the injury to Irving. He is averaging 13 points per game in the playoffs and hitting on 43% from the field. He shot a woeful 3 of 13 from the field and scored 9 points in 34 minutes in Game 1. Despite the poor opener Smith has shot better in the postseason with Cleveland than in his time with the Knicks and Nuggets.

Cleveland Cavaliers Small Forward: LeBron James is coming off a monster Game 1 of the NBA Finals with 44 points. He appeared to have worn down in the overtime period as he finished the game with 46 minutes of play. LeBron is having a poor postseason from the three point line hitting 18.4% from beyond the arc.

Cleveland Cavaliers Power Forward: Kevin Love has been lost for the season after playing just four playoff games.

Cleveland Cavaliers Center: Timofey Mozgov and Tristan Thompson are getting minutes in the postseason. Mozgov averages 9 points and 7 rebounds while Thompson is grabbing ten rebounds with nine points per game average.

1 day fantasy sportsGolden St Warriors Point Guard: Stephen Curry in 43 minutes in Game 1 had 26 points and eight assists. For the playoffs the Warriors point guard is averaging 29 points per game. With Kyrie Irving out for Cleveland Curry should be able to dribble penetrate more and his assists totals will go up.

Golden St Shooting Guard: Klay Thompson is averaging nearly 20 points per game in the playoffs. In game 1 he was sharp at the free throw line making all eight shot attempts. From the field he was cold hitting 5 of 14 shots. Thompson did not show any ill effects on Thursday from the blow to the head he suffered in the Houston Rockets series.

Golden St Power Forward: David Lee has seen no minutes in the past two playoff games. The Warriors did a very good job of forcing LeBron James to shoot jump shots and kept him from driving in the paint excessively. Lee could be more of a force for NBA fantasy league owners when the series shifts to Cleveland.

Golden St Warriors Small Forward: Draymond Green has been cold from the field in his past two playoff games shooting a combined 7 of 28 from the floor. Even though Green may be struggling with his shot he is still pulling down rebounds and playing excellent defense for the club so his minutes are not at risk.

Golden St Warriors Center: Andrew Bogut in Game 1 of the NBA Finals played 28 minutes which was his most in the past three games. Bogut won’t get many scoring opportunities but will pull down rebounds for the club. The Warriors center grabbed seven boards in Game 1.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Golden State Warriors – 6/4/15 NBA Playoff Fantasy Sports, Basketball Picks, Odds & Predictions

1 DAY FANTASY SPORTSThe 2015 NBA Finals are set as Fantasy draft managers will have difficult decisions to make as the Golden State Warriors will be meeting the Cleveland Cavaliers. Game 1 will be played on Thursday June 4th and you can follow your rosters on ABC TV at 9PM Eastern Time.

The Golden St Warriors were favorites of NBA fantasy players as the club was the top scoring, shooting and three point shooting team in the NBA during the regular season. They defended well as many viewers were able to witness in these playoffs. The Warriors allowed 42.8% shooting to opponents ranking best in the league for the regular season. Golden St showed off great defense in the Western conference semifinals as the club was able to limit shot attempts of the Memphis Grizzlies big men in Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol. Once Memphis was eliminated, Golden St needed just five games to eliminate the Houston Rockets in the Western conference finals.

Cleveland enters the NBA Finals with eight days of rest after the team was able to eliminate the Atlanta Hawks in a four game sweep. The Cavaliers were strong defensively in that series by allowing no greater than 89 points in three of the four games. Prior to their win against the Hawks the Cavaliers eliminated the Bulls and Celtics. Cleveland will be tested defensively. They have shown weakness during the regular season in transition defense. Atlanta, Boston and Chicago could not exploit this weakness. Golden St can with their speed, intelligence and passing ability. Kyrie Irving is nowhere near 100% and could be a defensive liability. J.R. Smith is a poor defender and could be exposed in this series.

1 day fantasy sportsCleveland Cavaliers Point Guard: Kyrie Irving has been bothered by a knee problem that has forced him to miss games in the Eastern conference finals. He admitted to the media that he will not be 100% for this series. In the playoffs he is averaging 18 points per game and shooting 43% from the floor.

Cleveland Cavaliers Shooting Guard: J.R. Smith is getting fewer minutes than Iman Shumpert but Smith is producing a bit more offensively. Smith is averaging 13 points and Shumpert 10 points per game in the playoffs. J.R. Smith could be a defensively liability in this series so proceed with caution if you are to add him to your real money league tournament roster.

Cleveland Cavaliers Small Forward: LeBron James has simply carried this Cavaliers team on his shoulder. It helped that the competition in the East was offensively challenged. James is averaging nearly 41 minutes a game in the post season with 27 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists.

Cleveland Cavaliers Power Forward: Kevin Love will be sidelined in this series due to his shoulder injury.

Cleveland Cavaliers Center: Tristan Thompson has earned the trust of his coach and as a result has seen his minutes rise by eight more minutes than the regular season. He is shooting 59% from the floor and grabbing 10 rebounds per game to go with his 9 point per contest output.

1 day fantasy sportsGolden St Warriors Point Guard: Stephen Curry is difficult to defend as his dribbling ability breaks down opposing defenses. In the playoffs he is averaging 29 points along with 6 assists per game. In the five game series against Houston, Curry played just an average of 37 minutes per game. He is very fresh coming into this series.

Golden St Warriors Shooting Guard: Good news for Klay Thompson is he passed his concussion test and will play in Game 1. The concern will be if there are any ill effects from this traumatic blow to his head. In the playoffs Thompson is averaging 21 points and three assists per game.

Golden St Warriors Power Forward: David Lee has averaged just three minutes in the Houston series. Lee could be asked to contribute in this series to help defend LeBron which could result in some rebounds and scoring chances. He averaged 11 minutes in the Memphis series as he helped defend Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol.

Golden St Warriors Small Forward: Draymond Green has contributed well for the Warriors this postseason. In the Houston series Green averaged 14 points and 12 rebounds per game. He was asked to keep the Grizzlies and Rockets big men from the hole in back to back series and still contributed offensively.

Golden St Warriors Center: Andrew Bogut is no longer a main option for this Warriors team. He sets screens and rolls for rebounds offensively. He plugs the middle for Golden St on defense. He averaged 9 rebounds per game in the Rockets series.

NBA Fantasy Draft Value Picks – Playoffs – 2014-2015

The leaders have emerged in the playoffs. Those teams with strong leadership like the Warriors and the Cavaliers are thriving while those with under-performing captains (Rockets) or lack of a discernable leader (Hawks) are feeling the pressure. However, what always seems to be the theme in Fantasy cash draft contests, is that actual game performance does not always align with Fantasy Value.

Lets look at Lebron James for instance. While he has been able to deliver consistent Fantasy Value in one day cash drafts, his salary has begun to reflect his outstanding performance in these playoffs. His salary even exceeds the MVP Stephen Curry’s salary in most Cash draft contests. Therefore, as a fantasy draft manager, you need him to score a triple double just to hit his value. However, this is a pretty safe bet as Lebron has been the most consistent star in these playoffs and with the continued absence of Irving and Love, he will need to continue to dominate. As far as the high priced players go, James would still be my pick for any NBA cash draft.

The other two top tier guys to look at are Curry and Harden. Curry is a great pick but where he seems to lack in compared to Lebron is in Rebounds. Lebron brings such great Fantasy Value since he can hit big numbers in rebounds, assists, and points. Curry gets assists, but is more limited to points and assists. He comes at a slightly cheaper price though, so on the right night, he be the value pick if he can exceed his price more than Lebron can.

Harden is the clear dog out of these three. While he does have big games where he can meet his numbers, he is too inconsistent of a draft pick. With a price on par with Curry and James, I would pass on Harden.

F1 day fantasy sportsNow we can move down to mid-tier guys. This tier is dominated by Hawks players: Horford, Teague, and Millsap. Horford scored modestly this weekend after being ejected and only playing 19 minutes. Even in a full game, I am hesitant with Horford. He doesn’t get the rebounds you should expect from a center for his price but he supplements his value with points scored. If you catch him on a night where another Hawk’s player takes a larger portion of points, Horford’s fantasy value could suffer. Similar things can be seen with Teague and Millsap. In game-play it is a positive team attribute to have a deep lineups of players who can all contribute but in Fantasy draft contests, that only leads to water down the value of your draft picks.

Dwight Howard is still listed as questionable but after playing 33 minutes last game, I think he is a safe pick. When Howard is hot, he can greatly exceed his price. Although he is inconsistent due to injuries and foul trouble, I think he is the best value pick at center in any NBA cash draft.

Draymond Green, Tristan Thompson, and Trevor Ariza are also players to keep on the radar as solid draft picks. All three have been somewhat inconsistent in these playoffs but certainly have solid upside potential.

While great game players, Smith and Shumpert of the Cavaliers are poor fantasy draft picks as they are point dominant players. With Lebron taking the role of point man, they have little opportunity to reach the level of assists you usually see from a guard in their role. Remember, as a fantasy draft manager you need to view players from their fantasy value and keep out any bias about actual game performance: they may line up, but often they do not.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Atlanta Hawks – 5/22/15 NBA Playoff Fantasy Sports, Basketball Picks, Odds & Predictions

1 DAY FANTASY SPORTSThe Atlanta Hawks and Cleveland Cavaliers move into Game 2 of their NBA playoff series on Friday night May 22nd. With Atlanta down 0-1 in this series they are the home team and NBA mock draft managers can tune to TNT TV at 8:30PM Eastern Time to follow their roster scoring in real time.

Atlanta for the third consecutive playoff game was unable to eclipse 100 points as they were held to just 89 points in Game 1. After pouring in 51 for the first half the Hawks offense stalled and was held to just 38 for the second half. The Hawks three point shooting was horrid in the opener as the club could make only 4 of their 23 shots which really made the difference in the game. The game also saw Atlanta forward DeMarre Carroll go down with a sprained knee and his status for Friday is listed as questionable.

On the Cavaliers side guard Kyrie Irving played though a knee injury that impacted him on the scoring column. He is listed as probable on Friday but it would surprise anyone if Irving was to sit out Game 2 with the Game 1 victory and the next two games of this series after Friday being played in Cleveland. Sixth man J.R. Smith had been historically a very poor playoff shooter but he delivered big time in Game 1 with 28 points with 8 of 12 makes coming from three point distance.

1 day fantasy sportsCleveland Cavaliers Point Guard: Kyrie Irving has played in all 11 Cavaliers playoff games. He is averaging 19 points and 3 ½ assists per game. About is injury Irving told the media that he is confident to play on Friday. He had six points in Game 6 against the Bulls. Irving scored 10 in the opener against the Hawks.

Cleveland Cavaliers Center: Tristan Thompson has seen his minutes increase in the playoffs. He is shooting 58% from the field, grabbing 9 ½ boards with 9 points per game.

F1 day fantasy sportsAtlanta Hawks Point Guard: Jeff Teague had a good Game 1 for the Hawks with 27 points and four assists. With J.R. Smith getting more time on the court it’s a plus for fantasy draft managers to take a look at Teague because Smith has issues defensively.

Atlanta Hawks Shooting Guard: It has been a very disappointing playoff for Kyle Korver. He is averaging just 11 points a game with a 39% shooting percentage. He is shooting nearly 90% lower in the playoffs than he did during the regular season.

Atlanta Hawks Power Forward: Paul Millsap has averaged 15 points along with nine rebounds per game in the playoffs. His shots have not fallen over his past two games at 10 for 31 combined shooting.

Atlanta Hawks Small Forward: DeMarre Carroll has put up 16 points a game with 6 ½ boards for the Hawks in the post season. In 35 minutes of play in Game 1, Carroll had just five points and one rebound. Carroll will have his hands full keeping an eye on LeBron James on defense to defend the goal. Carroll was hot in the closeout game against Washington in Game 6 with 25 points and ten rebounds.

Atlanta Hawks Center: Al Holford has been healthy this year and is numbers have been good. He is third on the team in playoff scoring at 15 points per game. Horford In Game 1 had 16 points along with seven rebounds.

Houston Rockets vs Golden State Warriors – 5/19/15 NBA Playoff Fantasy Sports, Basketball Picks, Odds & Predictions

1 DAY FANTASY SPORTSWe have reached the Western conference finals stages of the NBA playoffs in 2015 and the matchup should be one that will entertain one-day league fantasy rosters. The Golden St Warriors will host Game 1 against the Houston Rockets on Tuesday May 19th. Fantasy league owners can tune to ESPN at 9PM Eastern Time from Golden St to follow the scoring.

The matchup involves two high scoring teams. The Houston Rockets are the sixth best team in points per game at 104 points per contest. The Golden St Warriors sit number on in all three major categories offensively in the league. They are the best in scoring at 110 per game, field goal shooting at 47.8% and three point shooting at 39.8%. One thing that Golden St does much better than Houston is defend. The Warriors are the top defensive field goal shooting team in the league by holding opponents to 42.8%. Those who watched the Warriors eliminate the Grizzlies in six games saw a very good game plan executed as they doubled down on the Memphis big men in Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol. Golden St limited the shots of the best two shooters on the Grizzlies roster and exploited the poor outside shooters on the Memphis roster. Houston will have just one day of rest since eliminating the LA Clippers in a seventh game on Sunday that was played on the Rockets home court.

1 day fantasy sportsHouston Rockets Point Guard: Pablo Prigioni is the line point guard on the Rockets active roster. He has averaged 18 ½ minutes over his past five games with only 2 ½ points and 2 ½ assist per game average.

Houston Rockets Shooting Guard: James Harden is a high volume shooter and leads the Rockets by far in scoring in the playoffs at nearly 27 points per game. Harden does a great job of drawing fouls and getting to the free throw line. Note he will be working hard on defense trying to contain the fast guard play of the Warriors.

Houston Rockets Power Forward: Terrence Jones contributed with 11 points per game average in the playoffs in his 24 minutes of play each night. He has pulled down over five boards per contest. Small forward Josh Smith takes Jones’ minutes when the team needs offense.

Houston Rockets Shooting Forward: Veteran Trevor Ariza is getting major minutes in the post season as he leads the team with 38 per game. He puts up 13 points, grabs nearly 7 rebounds and dishes out 3 assists per contest in the playoffs.

Houston Rockets Center: Dwight Howard is second on the club in scoring at 17 points per game. He has grabbed 14 rebounds per playoff contest. He was sent to the free throw line a lot of times in the Clippers series. With the Warriors fast pace it will be interesting to see if they want to break up their momentum and pace of the game by sending Howard to the free throw line.

F1 day fantasy sportsGolden St Warriors Point Guard: Stephen Curry has played very well against Houston this year with a 24 points, 8 assists and 6 ½ rebounds per game in his four contests. Curry should be good to fantasy draft managers because the Rockets don’t nearly defend as well as the Grizzlies.

Golden St Warriors Shooting Guard: Klay Thompson’s production goes down greatly on the road. The Warriors are home in Game 1 and 2. He is second on the club at 21 points per game in the playoffs.

Golden St Warriors Power Forward: David Lee is the only power forward on the roster for NBA drafters when selecting fantasy rosters. Lee is coming off the bench and has averaged just 11 minutes and 3 points per game in the playoffs.

Golden St Warriors Small Forward: Draymond Green has made a name for himself in the postseason with his offense and defense. As a result his minutes have increased by six more in the playoffs. He is averaging nearly 14 points, 10 rebounds and dishing five assists per game.

Golden St Warriors Center: Andrew Bogut isn’t providing much scoring for the team. On offense he sets picks and rolls to the bucket for rebounds. On defense he plugs the middle. He is posting five points, eight rebounds and 2 assists per game.

Memphis Grizzlies vs Golden State Warriors – 5/15/15 NBA Playoff Fantasy Sports, Basketball Picks, Odds & Predictions

NBA Cash Draft PicksGame 6 from the Western conference semifinal round of the NBA playoffs is necessary so the Memphis Grizzlies will be hosting the Golden St Warriors. This game will be played in Memphis on Friday night May 15th and NBA fantasy mock draft managers can following the scoring from their rosters at 9:30PM Eastern Time on TNT TV.

After dropping Game 2 and 3 the Golden St Warriors were down 2-1 in this best of seven series and staring at adversity for the first time this season. Golden St was held to just 90 and 89 points in those losses and was looking for answers as their shots were not falling. The defense intensified for the Warriors as the team wins Game 4 and 5 by allowing Memphis just 84 and 78 points in each of the contests. With the wins they are now within one win away from a trip to the Western Conference finals to play the winner of the Clippers and Rockets series. Golden St was not scoring to regular season numbers but their defense contained the two big men from Memphis in Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol from shooting at extremely high shooting percentages.

We have yet to see the best from Golden St from an offensive perspective. They have yet to show that monster performance where shots fall from the sky like we saw in the opening round against New Orleans. Mike Conley has a few games under his belt in this series after missing in Game 1 with fractures to his face. Tony Allen was hit with the injury bug as a sore hamstring prevented the Memphis guard from playing in Game 5 and is status for Game 6 is in question.

Cash Draft Contest

He did not get to the free throw line in Game 5 as he finished with 15 points.

Golden St Warriors Shooting Guard: Klay Thompson is second on the club with a 21 point per game average in the post season. He produced 21 of the Warriors 98 points in Game 5 as he hit 3 of 4 from the three point line. Thompson over his past three games has converted 9 of 16 shots from the three point line.

Golden St Warriors Power Forward: David Lee has seen his minutes decline 8 minutes per game during the playoffs. He did see action in Game 5 and in 17 minutes has six points and grabbed 7 rebounds.

Golden St Warriors Center: Andrew Bogut has averaged just five points per game in the playoffs but has grabbed nine boards per contest. He will be challenged getting shots in this series with the presence of Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol in the paint.

Free Basketball Cash DraftMemphis Grizzlies Point Guard: Mike Conley doesn’t get much volume of shots off for the Grizzlies. He is averaging 12 shots per game in this series as he tries to feed Randolph and Gasol in the paint.

Memphis Grizzlies Power Forward: Zach Randolph is second on the team in scoring at 16 points per game in the post season.

Memphis Grizzlies vs Golden State Warriors – 5/13/15 NBA Playoff Fantasy Sports, Basketball Picks, Odds & Predictions

NBA Cash Draft PicksGame 5 of the NBA playoffs series between the Memphis Grizzlies and Golden St Warriors will be played on Wednesday May 13th. NBA fantasy managers can follow their cash league rosters at 10:30PM Eastern Time on TNT from Oakland California the home of the Warriors.

This series is guaranteed to play to at least six games as the Warriors were able to find their shooting touch in Game 4 to even up this series at 2-2 heading back to Golden St for a pivotal Game 5. Those who have used the Warriors players on their fantasy rosters have not been too happy about the offense portrayed by the Warriors. In victories in Game’s 1 and 4 the team scored 101 points. Game 2 they scored just 90 points and in Game 3 the Warriors produced 89 points.

Memphis Grizzlies vs Golden State Warriors – 5/9/15 NBA Playoff Fantasy Sports, Basketball Picks, Odds & Predictions

NBA Cash Draft PicksIt is Game 3 of the NBA playoff series between the Golden St Warriors and Memphis Grizzlies scheduled for Saturday May 9th. Pro Basketball fantasy cash league participants can follow their roster at 8PM Eastern Time from Memphis on ABC TV.

The series is tied at 1-1. Golden St won Game 1 by 15 points. This loss for Memphis came without guard Mike Conley in the lineup. He has been nursing fractures to his face and was forced to miss action. He return to the Grizzlies lineup on Tuesday for Game 2 and the Grizzlies responded with a very good defensive performance winning 97-90 on the road. Memphis was able to contain the guard duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson in the win. It was a really bad shooting night for Stephen Curry as he was limited to just 7 of 19 from the floor and hit 2 of 11 three pointers. Klay Thompson was 6 of 15 from the floor and 1 of 6 went in from the three point line. Memphis has to use defensive play in the perimeter to stop the Warriors because the Grizzlies cannot keep up with the scoring potential for Golden St. Things are going to be difficult for those who insert Andrew Bogut into their roster. The Warriors guard has to find space around the bucket offensively with the long stretched out arms of a Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol in the paint. If the shots don’t fall for Golden St they will have a difficult time in this series. If the shot do fall for the Warriors the Grizzlies will be very challenged to keep up and especially from three where the Grizzlies do not perform well. Because Memphis is a half-court offense it does not afford the opportunity for many clean open looks from the three point line. Memphis likes to walk the ball up as their guards wait for both Gasol and Randolph to get inside position so they can feed them the ball for up close high percentage shots. That’s why pace is so important in this series.

Los Angeles Clippers vs Houston Rockets – 5/6/15 NBA Playoff Fantasy Sports, Basketball Picks, Odds & Predictions

NBA Cash Draft PicksIt will be Game 2 of the Western conference semifinals series between the Houston Rockets and LA Clippers on Wednesday May 6th. The action from Staples Center in Los Angeles at 10:30PM Eastern Time and TNT has the broadcast.

The Houston Rockets find themselves down 1-0 as the Clippers were able to steal Game 1 on Monday by a score of 117-101 to cover as a +7 ½ point underdog. The Clippers brought a very good offensive performance without their floor leader and point guard Chris Paul who missed the game due to a hamstring injury suffered in Game 7 on Saturday night against the Clippers. Still the Clippers were able to shoot nearly 49% from the field and hit 42% of their three point shots in Game 1 in what was supposed to be a bad spot for the team. Game 2 can be a tricky read for NBA mock draft fantasy managers.

After the conclusion of Game 1 media reports have Kevin McHale in a closed locker room meeting with the club screaming at the top of his lungs at his anger and disappointment of his team’s performance. The second half saw the Clippers score 71 points and outscored the Rockets by 20 points with Chris Paul sitting in street clothes on the bench. The Rockets committed 24 turnovers with 9 coming from James Harden.

LA Clippers Point Guard: Chris Paul has been listed as 50% chance of playing on Wednesday. With LA up 1-0 in this series head coach Doc Rivers may opt to rest Paul until the series returns to LA. Paul is averaging 39 minutes a game with 27 points and 8 rebounds per contest. Austin Rivers got the start in Game 1 and produced 17 points in 28 minutes of play.

LA Clippers Shooting Guard: J.J. Redick is averaging 14 points and is making 42% from the three point line in the playoffs. He contributed with 17 points in the Game 1 victory. After a slow start from the field Redick has been more accurate from the field and with the Paul injury could get more looks in Game 2.

LA Clippers Power Forward: Blake Griffin has finally elevated his game in the playoffs. He is playing 41 minutes a game and is averaging 24 points, 13 assists and 8 rebounds. In 40 minutes of play in Game 1 Griffin had 26 points, 14 rebounds and 13 assists for a back to back triple double in the playoffs. He is shooting 48% from the field in his past five playoff games.

LA Clippers Small Forward: Matt Barnes as we have mentioned can deliver offense when needed. He is on the court for his defensive prowess. In Game 7 against the Spurs, Barnes had 17 points and five guards. He had 20 points with five boards and some huge three point makes in the win against the Rockets.

LA Clippers Center: DeAndre Jordan has been great grabbing rebounds for the Clippers in the post season. He is averaging over 13 boards in eight games. Jordan is a poor free throw shooter so he gets fouled intentionally and can pick up points at the free throw line.

Houston Rockets Point Guard: The Rockets listed point guard is Pablo Prigioni and that’s one of the reasons they struggled with 24 turnovers in Game 1. Prigioni is averaging just 21 minutes in the playoffs. In Game 1 he had 11 points and three assists in 20 minutes of play.

Houston Rockets Shooting Guard: James Harden is leading the Rockets in the playoffs with 27 points. In 37 minutes in Game 1 Harden had 20 points with 12 assists but turned the ball over 9 times in the loss.

Houston Rockets Power Forward: Terrence Jones is averaging 11 points in 24 minutes of play in the playoffs. He was just 1 of 6 from the floor in 16 minutes in Game 1 and finished with just 4 points. During the regular season Jones shot 52%. In the post season he is shooting just 39%.

Houston Rockets Small Forward: Starter Trevor Ariza is averaging 37 minutes in the playoffs. After two sub-par games in the final two games against Dallas, Ariza had 17 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists in Game 1. Josh Smith in a reserve role is generating more offense as he is averaging 16 points per game in the post season.

Houston Rockets Center: Dwight Howard may come focused for Game 2 after the loss on Monday. He had 22 points and 10 rebounds in Game 1. Howard is hitting 60% from the floor so expect the Rockets center to get some touches in the paint. Because the Clippers are thin on their bench it may not be smart to foul Howard intentionally especially with Chris Paul possibly sitting out Game 2.

Memphis did a great job of containing Trailblazers stars LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard as the Grizzlies limited those two all starts to poor shooting percentages in their series.

Golden St Warriors Center: Andrew Bogut has stayed away from the dreaded injury report in the post season. Seemed throughout his career in the NBA this time of the year he was battling a significant ailment.

NBA Cash Draft Picks

The NBA Playoffs first round between the LA Clippers and San Antonio Spurs has reached Game 6 on Thursday April 30th. The Spurs will host and will look for the close out as they get started at 9:30PM Eastern Time over on TNT TV.

Since the LA Clippers won Game 1 of this series by 15 points to open the series the San Antonio Spurs have won three of the next four games. In those three victories the Spurs have averaged 107 points per game. The two games played at San Antonio in this series resulted in a split the Spurs winning Game 3 by the score of 100-73 and it was the Clippers bouncing back with the 114-103 victory in Game 4 in San Antonio.

Game five was a close game and the Spurs were able to pull away with a 111-107 victory as a critical offensive goaltending call cost LA the game late. The Clippers were terrible from the outside in their Game 5 loss as they go 1 of 14 from the three point line with Jamal Crawford going 0 of 6 from beyond the arc. Many make excuses for the Clippers that they have a weak bench. The truth is the Clippers starting five should be good enough to win since they see nearly 40 minutes of play and all five play most of the fourth quarter. There can be no excuses for a Clippers team that lack the mental toughness late in playoff games to win key games that swing series they compete in. Because the Clippers starting five plays many more minutes than the Spurs starting give its LA that creates the best fantasy picks for this series.

LA Clippers Point Guard: Chris Paul has averaged 38 minutes in this series and is averaging 22 ponts per game and is dishing nearly seven innings. In a closeout game expect Paul to try and to a bit more here and take a high volume of shots. In a must win Game three Paul was 11 of 19 and scored 34 points. Facing elimination we may get Paul’s best game here.

LA Clippers Shooting Guard: J.J. Redick has been a disappointment in the playoffs as he is hitting just 40% from the field and averaging four points fewer than his regular seasonal average. He did not take a three point shot in Game 5 in 42 minutes of play.

LA Clippers Center: DeAndre Jordan is averaging 36 minutes in the postseason. He is a poor free throw shooter and a target to send to the free throw line. Jordan does grab 13 rebounds per game and because of his trips to the free throw line is valuable to one-day fantasy league managers.

San Antonio Spurs Point Guard: Tony Parker has been banged up and in an average of 29 minutes per game is only averaging 9 points per game in the playoffs. His production is way down with 2 ½ rebounds and assists per game.

San Antonio Spurs Shooting Guard: Danny Green has started all games and is playing 28 minutes per game but is only averaging seven points per contest. He is splitting time with Manu Ginobilli who is putting in nine points a game in about 20 minutes per contest.
