Keep up to date with the latest projected & Confirmed NBA starting lineups in real-time at @nbastartlineups.
Kyle Lowry ($6,800) vs Magic– Lowry silenced all the haters in game two by putting up 22 PTS 7 AST and 4 REB on an efficient 8/13 from the field. The Lowry playoff struggles are overblown in my opinion and you can look at his stats over most recent years and see he is a quality playoff player. He is one of the highest assist men in the NBA so when he gets the scoring going he can be a real threat in DFS. Tonight I think he will put up a similar performance in what should be a closer matchup with the Magic on the road than what we saw in game 2.
Terrence Ross ($5,000) vs Raptors– Sticking with the same game, Magic G Terrence Ross continues to come off the bench in a primary scoring roll for Orlando. In his return to Toronto he didn’t shoot the ball particularly great but with less pressure back at home I think he will get it going. He will always get double-digit shot attempts and has shown at times that if he gets hot nobody can stop him. Look for Ross to put forth a solid effort of around 15-20 PTS and 5 REB if the Magic want any chance of winning.
Paul George ($8,700) vs Trail Blazers– There has been a lot of talk about the health of Paul George but he seemed to put those questions to bed in game two when he put up 27 PTS 8 REB and 3 AST on 55% shooting. The Thunder may have lost but in terms of fantasy George is always going to give you numbers. He is also averaging 2.5 SPG in the first two games of the series and 9 REB to go along with his elite level scoring. Assuming his shoulder is good to go I’m expecting a 50+ FPTS night from George in a must win situation for OKC down 2-0 in the series.
Pascal Siakam ($7,300) vs Magic– Siakam has been great vs the Magic through their first two games, he is averaging 21.5 PPG 9.5 RPG and 2.5 APG and has been racking up almost 40 minutes. He has also shot 50% from the field in both games. Especially after his game two performance, the Magic are going to have to put an increased focus of Kawhi Leonard which could open up even more for Siakam. I don’t expect him to slow down anytime soon.
Steven Adams ($5,900) vs Trail Blazers– Despite the loss Adams still put forth a solid performance with 16 PTS and 9 REB on 7/8 shooting vs the Blazers. Kanter found himself in foul trouble and was not on the court as much which could have limited Adams scoring potential because of Kanter’s poor defense. He has been extremely efficient in this series so I can only expect for the Thunder to hopefully look for him more as they need to find a way to get a win in this series.
Tyreke Evans ($4,000) vs Celtics– Evans feels underpriced here for a guy that has scored around 20 FPTS per game through the first two games this series vs the Celtics. Evans is a guy who has a high ceiling with ability to score the basketball but he has also grabbed 6 or more rebounds through the first two games vs Boston. Of all the players in this range tonight I love Evans compared to the other guys in a must win game 3 for the Pacers.
