Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala (calf) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Sunday. He played just 18 minutes during Game 3 on Saturday due to left calf tightness. This seems to be a lingering issue with Iggy and this could be troublesome for the Warriors. Kevin Durant (calf) is out and Iggy looks like he could be missing some time as well. The Warriors are running out of depth quickly, but we'll wait and see what the MRI results are before jumping to conclusions.
Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard (ribs) is apparently playing through an injury that he suffered in Game 2 versus the Golden State Warriors. Lillard reportedly suffered separated ribs in the second game of this series, but has no plans to sit out. Lillard has been slumping, and the Blazers need him to step it up to avoid being swept by the Warriors.
Milwaukee Bucks guard/forward Giannis Antetokounmpo provided another monster line in the easy 22-point Game 2 win over the Raptors. Antetokounmpo scored 30 points and added 17 rebounds with five assists and a steal with two blocks in 35 minutes of action. The Bucks offense was on point tonight with six players scoring in double digits, and this led to the Greek Freak needing to play just 35 minutes, which will be a positive for Game 3 on Sunday. He is playing at a superstar level at the moment and the Raptors look to have zero answers for him, making him someone that needs to be on everyone's lineups for Game 3.
Milwaukee Bucks center Brook Lopez cooled off in Game 2 on Friday when he scored just six points with four rebounds in the 22-point win. Marc Gasol struggled on the offensive end in this one, but he made sure that Lopez did not have come close to his heroic Game 1 playoff career-high 29 points. Lopez, overall, has been struggling throughout this postseason and did score just 27 points in the entire series with the Celtics. We can only assume Gasol will come out more confident in Game 3 after back-to-back duds, making him the possible better play in the middle for that one.
Milwaukee Bucks forward Nikola Mirotic scored 11 of his 15 points in the opening period to help secure the 22-point Game 2 win over the Toronto Raptors. Mirotic nailed half of his 10 shots from the floor and added six rebounds across 23 minutes of action. Mirotic once again started with Malcolm Brogdon still coming off the bench and Mirotic is averaging 14.0 points and 6.0 rebounds across the series first two games. Mirotic has been pretty consistent this postseason and we can assume the Bucks will stick with him in the starting unit as it has proved successful in the win column for Milwaukee this postseason.
Milwaukee Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova came up big off the bench in Game 2 in the win over the Raptors on Friday. Ilyasova scored 17 points on 7-for-11 shooting and added three boards with two assists and two steals in just 21 minutes of action. Ilyasova led the bench squad who was the difference in this lopsided battle. Ilyasova has scored in double digits just three times this postseason and has never done so in back-to-back games, so keep this in mind for Game 3 when the series heads to Toronto on Sunday.
Toronto Raptors Shooting guard/small forward Kawhi Leonard was once again the lone bright spot for his struggling club in the 22-point loss to the Bucks. Leonard led his squad with 31 points on 10-for-18 shooting and added eight boards with two assists and a block across 38 minutes. The rest of the Raptors starting unit provided a dismal 33 points combined and once again, Leonard could not do it all on his own. He is averaging 31.0 points and 8.5 rebounds through the series first two games and is definitely a player you want to build your roster around in the crucial Game 3 for his club.
Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry scored 15 points and managed to connect on just 4-for-13 shooting in the 125-103 Game 2 loss to the Bucks in Milwaukee on Friday. Lowry got his looks from three but managed to make just two of nine attempts after making seven of nine in Game 1. Lowry has struggled with consistency once again this postseason and he had a hard time tonight against the length from the Bucks. Lowry is very hard to play right now in DFS as you do not know which Lowry will show up, although, you would need to assume that Lowry will come out aggressive in Game 3 with the series pretty much on the line.
Toronto Raptors forward Pascal Siakam had a game to forget on Friday when he managed to score just eight points while battling foul trouble in the 22-point loss to the Bucks in Game 2. Siakam connected on 4-for-9 shooting and added two assists and a single rebound with a steal in this one. Siakam has made just 10 of 29 field goal attempts in the series first two games and with the Bucks length up front, Siakam has had some serious issues with attacking the rim. Game 3 is pivotal for the Raptors and we can only assume Siakam will come out firing with the homecourt fans on his side.
Toronto Raptors center Marc Gasols shooting struggles continued in Fridays 125-103 loss to the Bucks in Game 2. Gasol connected on just 1-for-9 shooting to score just two points and has now shot just 3-for-21 in the series first two games. Gasol did not add much else either as he had five rebounds with an assist and a block across 19 minutes of action. Gasol took the blame after the game for the Raptors slow start which led them to be fighting from the behind for the entirety of the game. Serge Ibaka did show some promise off the bench as he scored eight points with 10 rebounds in 29 minutes of action.
Indiana Pacers guard/forward Tyreke Evans has been disqualified from the NBA due to violation of the league's substance abuse policy. Evans won't be allowed to play in the NBA for two years. However, after those two years, he's eligible to seek reinstatement. Evans is currently 31 years old and was going to be a free agent this summer.
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry had the hot hand once again on Thursday as he scored 37 points in the 114-111 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 2. Curry connected on 11 of 22 shooting from the floor but made just four of 14 from three while adding eight rebounds and he had eight assists but did commit six turnovers on the night. The Dubs were down 15 points at the half, but a strong third quarter charge led by Curry and Klay Thompson got them back in this one. He is in must play mode in DFS with Kevin Durant (calf) expected to miss at least another three games after Curry has recorded 30-plus points for the third straight game.
Golden State Warriors shooting guard/small forward Klay Thompson scored 13 of his 24 points in the monster third quarter for his club in the 114-111 win over the Trail Blazers on Thursday. Thompson connected on 8-for-22 shooting overall and added three rebounds with two assists across 41 minutes of action. The Warriors outscored the Blazers 39-24 in the third quarter with Stephen Curry and Thompson both getting hot in that frame. Thompson is actually struggling from the floor in the series' first two games where he is shooting just 39.1%, but with Kevin Durant (calf) to miss at least three more games, Thompson is still worth a look for Game 3.
Golden State Warriors power forward/center Draymond Green continued to be everywhere on Thursday when he posted another full line in the three-point win over the Trail Blazers. Green scored 16 points and added 10 boards for another double-double and he did not stop there as he had five blocks with seven assists for another big night. Green had four blocks midway through the second quarter alone and is averaging 13.4 points, 10.5 rebounds and 7.6 assists over his last eight games. Green has been incredible and with Kevin Durant (calf) to miss more time, Green will continue to be a Swiss Army knife for this club.
Golden State Warriors power forward/center Jordan Bell provided some excellent minutes in the Game 2 win over the Trail Blazers on Thursday. Bell played just 14 minutes but scored 11 points with three rebounds and added an assist with two steals and a block. Bell was active on this night as he was getting good looks at the basket off of pick and rolls and also played great defense on pick and rolls at the other end. We have seen Bell have games like these in the past and then disappear in the next, so he is more of a punt play for Game 3.
Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (calf) "is likely to miss" the entire series versus the Portland Trail Blazers according to Monte Poole of NBC Sports. The calf strain seems to be not healing as quickly as initially expected and he is expected to be reevaluated in a week, meaning he will most likely miss at least another three games of the Western Conference Finals if the series goes that long. The information is still quite vague, but we can assume Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson to continue to shoulder the offensive load.
Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard did not score his first points until there was 3:50 left in the second quarter but ended up finishing the night with 23 points in the Game 2 loss on Thursday. Lillard continued his excellent playmaking as he handed out 10 dimes with five boards and a steal while drilling five of 12 from three in this one. Lillard had a chance to tie the game on the last possession, but a clean strip by Andre Iguodala ended it. The Warriors are continuing to trap the All-Star on pick and rolls and it has proved to be successful in the first two games of this series. Look for the Blazers to make some adjustments to get their superstar going in Game 3 when the series shifts back to Portland on Saturday.
Portland Trail Blazers center Enes Kanter did not provide much in his 19 minutes of action in the Game 2 loss on Thursday to the Warriors. Kanter provided just five points with four rebounds as he looked sluggish and continued to have issues defending the pick and roll. Kanter is still battling through his shoulder injury and is still fasting for religious purposes, which also means he cannot take anything to relieve the pain in his shoulder. The Blazers went with Zach Collins, but he picked up five fouls in eight minutes. We did see some positive minutes out of Meyers Leonard who had seven points and six rebounds in 17 minutes and is worth a look as a punt play for Game 3.
Portland Trail Blazers guard Seth Curry provided some great minutes off the bench for the Trail Blazers in Game 2, but it was not enough in the comeback win for the Warriors. Curry had the hot hand as he nailed four triples and five shots overall en route to 16 points and had four big steals with a rebound and two assists. Curry was a game-high plus-13 and this cannot be overlooked with his massive impact on this night. Curry will definitely see an uptick in minutes in Game 3 as the Blazers had success with smaller lineups, making this Curry brother a serious play for the next match in this series.
Milwaukee Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon will come off the bench again for Game 2 versus the Toronto Raptors on Friday. Head coach Mike Budenholzer liked what he saw from Brogdon off the bench in Game 1. Nikola Mirotic will continue to start, but Brogdon could end up taking over as starter. However, if Brogdon continues to play well off the bench then the Bucks may decide to just keep him there.
