Golden State Warriors DFS Notes
Steph Curry posted 27 points, six dimes, three triples and three boards in Thursday’s win over Dallas. After averaging 22.5 minutes across the first two games of the series, Steph ramped up to 31 minutes in this one that came down to the final minute. He’s operated as a Sixth Man extraordinaire through three games, and if it ain’t broke, why fix it? Golden State can close this series out with a win on Sunday, and we’d expect Curry to come off the bench once again.
Denver Nuggets DFS Notes
Nikola Jokic finished Thursday's loss with 37 points, 18 rebounds, five dimes and three steals. Unfortunately, he also committed five turnovers and had the ball stolen in the final minutes of a closely-contested game. His 37 points are just one shy of his playoff career-high and tonight’s 14-of-22 shooting performance marked his first of the series shooting at least 50% from the field. Though he’s put up some ridiculously gaudy numbers, the Nuggets have been overwhelmed by Golden State’s high-flying offense. Teams down 3-0 in a playoff series are 0-143 in NBA history, so we’ll surely be bidding farewell to Jokic soon. Hopefully, he'll have time to visit a chiropractor in the offseason after putting this team on his back for so long.
