Utah Jazz power forward/center Derrick Favors put up another solid stat line his club's Game 4 victory. Favors was efficient connecting on six of his nine attempts from the floor, finishing the night with 13 points. Favors was also able to snag four rebounds, while swatting away two shots and picking up one steal in 33 minutes of action. Favors has been excellent in this series carrying over similar stats from his season averages as this is just what the Jazz needed from him. Favors is worth a grab for his consistent play and a healthy price tag in DFS for Game 5 as the series shifts back to Oklahoma City.
Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell's 33 points broke a club record for points in a playoff game for rookie beating out Karl Malone's 31 that he had in 1986. Mitchell was electric converting 13-for-28 from the floor, while adding seven rebounds with four assists and to add to the amazing line, he did not commit a single turnover. Mitchell is not playing like a rookie averaging 27.5 point in the series four games thus far and with his hot hand he is worth a roster spot if his price tag is right for Game 5 when the series shifts back to Oklahoma City.
Utah Jazz point guard Ricky Rubio provided another great outing in Game 4 of their series against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Rubio struggled a bit with his shot making just 4-for-12 from the floor, while finishing with 13 points. Rubio supplemented his line by adding eight assists and hauling down six rebounds with four turnovers on the night. Russell Westbrook was in his face all night on the defensive end which affected the Thunder's defensive rotations and led to Westbrook picking up four fouls in the first half. It did not phase Rubio too much and this chippy play will most likely continue in Game 5 where we can expect Rubio to stuff the stat sheet once again.
Utah Jazz forward Joe Ingles knocked down five more makes from deep as his club dominated the last three quarters in Game 4 of their series against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Ingles got going again knocking down five of his 11 attempts from downtown, en route to 20 points. Ingles did not stop there by dishing out four dimes and grabbing three boards, while notching a steal and a block on the night. Ingles has come to life in the series last two games averaging 20.5 points and making 10 total triples in the two games. Paul George tried everything to get in the Aussies head in this one, but it seemed to add fire to Ingles' play on the night. Ingles is always worth riding when he is hot and this makes him an appealing add for Game 5.
Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert controlled the paint once again for his club in a 113-96 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Gobert was was efficient from the floor making 7-for-11 shots, while connecting on 16 points and hauling down 10 rebounds. Gobert also chipped in a block and a steal and was once again able to contain Steven Adams in the painted area. Gobert has given the Jazz everything they need on the inside at both ends of the court in this series and with his consistency he is definitely worth a look at the center spot in DFS for this reason.
Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams was a bit quiet on the night, but still provided a decent line in his clubs loss to the Utah Jazz. Adams finished the night with nine points on 4-for-9 from the floor, while grabbing seven rebounds and adding two blocks. Adams was able to control his fouls in this one, but seems to not have much left for the offensive end while banging with Rudy Gobert throughout the night. Adams has seen his numbers dip in this series and they will need the Kiwi to step if they want to have any chance of taking Game 5.
Oklahoma City Thunder forward Carmelo Anthony continued his terrible shooting in Game 4 of his team's series against the Utah Jazz. Anthony could not get things going, shooting five of 18 from the floor to finish with a disappointing 11 points. He did salvage his line by grabbing six rebounds and adding some decent defensive stats of one steal and getting two blocks. Melo has been everything but effective in this series making just 37.3% of his shot from the floor and dismal 23.1% from three, while averaging only 14.3 point in the four games. Anthony has not scored more then 17 points in any of the games in this series, but maybe Game 5 he can get things going. He is worth a look as he is well overdue and his price tag will be dipping because of his play of late.
Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George recorded 32 points in the chippy matchup against the Utah Jazz. George converted nine of his 21 shots and was able to connect on all 12 of his attempts at the line, but it was just not enough. George also snagged six rebounds and added two steals but could not control the ball turning it over six times. George was in Joe Ingles face throughout the game trying to get in his head, but it did not seem to affect the Aussie and the Jazz used this chippy play in their favor steamrolling through the final three quarters. George has put up some big lines in this series, though not efficient, he is worth building your squad around in Game 5.
Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook continued to struggle with his shot and had foul trouble in his club's Game 4 loss to the Utah Jazz. Westbrook could not get going once again making just 7-for-18 from the floor to finish with 23 points in this pivotal contest. Westbrook was able to add 14 boards and three dimes in this chippy matchup. Westbrook was just not himself in this one letting his emotions get in the way, while racking four fouls before the half. The Thunder look destined for an early exit from the playoffs, unless their superstar can work a miracle and is able to turn things around for his club.
Houston Rockets' SG James Harden scored 36 points on 12-of-26 shooting in a 119-100 win over Minnesota on Monday, Apr. 23. Harden is owned in very few, if any leagues.
Thunder's SF Paul George scored 32 points on 9-of-21 shooting in a 96-113 loss to Utah on Monday, Apr. 23. George is owned in very few, if any leagues.
Jazz's SG Donovan Mitchell scored 33 points on 13-of-28 shooting in a 113-96 win over the Thunder on Monday, Apr. 23. Mitchell is owned in very few, if any leagues.
Cleveland Cavaliers guard George Hill (back) is questionable for Game 5 versus the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday. Jose Calderon drew the start at point guard with Hill sidelined for Game 4. The MRI on Hill came back clean, but he can't seem to shake the injury. Hill said he had four shots in his back, but he's still unable to sleep. It does not sound like Hill is going to be ready for game action by Wednesday. Calderon is expected to draw another start if Hill is unable to play.
Miami Heat guard/forward Josh Richardson (shoulder) is considered questionable for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Philadelphia 76ers. The Heat originally called the injury a contusion, but have now changed it to a sprain. Richardson said he was going to play, and he did fight through the issue during Game 4. Losing Richardson would be a big blow to the Heat, especially on defense. The Heat should have an update on Richardson's status some time on Tuesday.
San Antonio Spurs guard/forward Manu Ginobili (knee) is fully expected to play in Game 5 versus the Golden State Warriors. He briefly went down during Game 4 after banging his knee. However, Ginobili continued to play through the fourth quarter and is fully expected to be fine for Game 5. Ginobili was a huge factor in the Spurs victory, finishing with 16 points, five assists, three rebounds and three triples in 25 minutes. It sounds like Ginobili will be ready to roll for Game 5.
Toronto Raptors point guard Fred VanVleet (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Game 5 versus the Washington Wizards on Wednesday. It's not a good sign that VanVleet is considered doubtful two days in advance to the contest. However, VanVleet was able to get up some shots during Monday's practice. The Raptors are going to continue to play it safe with him and Delon Wright will absorb the extra minutes if VanVleet is sidelined again.
San Antonio Spurs shooting guard Manu Ginobili hasn't said yet if he'll be retiring after this season, but rumors have swirled about it all season. If he does retire, it won't be after a first round sweep as Ginobili played a big role in getting the Spurs their first win of the series. He scored 16 points on 5-for-10 shooting and had three rebounds and five assists as well. Ginobili has shot the ball well in this series and had upside in DFS games at the right price, though he doesn't have the same high ceiling as a lot of other guards.
San Antonio Spurs power forward/center LaMarcus Aldridge helped his team fend off elimination in Sunday's win over the Golden State Warriors, bringing the series to 3-1 and giving San Antonio at least one more game. Aldridge led the team with 22 points on 7-for-19 shooting. He grabbed 10 rebounds and added a steal and a block as well. Aldridge is the most important player on the court for the Spurs in this series and he'll need to repeat this performance on Tuesday for the team to have a chance at staying alive. It's been an uneven series for Aldridge, though, as he had just 14 points and two rebounds in Game 1 before putting up 34 points and 12 boards in Game 2. Which Aldridge will we see in Game 5? DFS owners might want to be careful in case we end up with the version that has struggled.
Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green continues to struggle to score in the Warriors first-round series against the San Antonio Spurs, but he put in a lot of work on the boards in Sunday's Game 4 loss, grabbing 18 rebounds. Eight of those boards came on the offensive end. In addition, Green finished with nine points on 4-for-14 shooting and had nine assists. Green's rebounding and passing give him value in this series, but he hasn't been able to score much against the Spurs defense, as Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson have shouldered that responsibility.
Golden State Warriors small forward Kevin Durant scored 35 points on 12-for-28 shooting in Sunday's Game 4 loss to the San Antonio Spurs. Durant also added 13 rebounds and a pair of assists. The series heads back to California on Tuesday for another elimination game as the Warriors look to finish off San Antonio. Durant has put up strong numbers all series and should once again be a focal point of a Golden State offense that has been hard to slow down. He's a strong DFS play.
