Favorite Plays

Stud Player

Ja Morant

Morant has gone about as crazy as you can in the playoffs, especially in this series. Through the first two games of the series, Morant is averaging 40.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, nine assists, and three steals. Morant has at least 68 fantasy points in each of those games and there really is no reason to believe that he slows down any time soon.

Mid-Tier Player

Al Horford

Horford was solid in the Nets series and has been excellent in this series. Horford has a double-double in each of the first two games of this series with five steals and three blocks. Horford has at least 37 fantasy points in each game. With not a lot of options at the center position tonight Horford is a lock and load play for me.

Value Player

Ziaire Williams

Dillon Brooks has been suspended for this game and that means we should see Williams play similar minutes to what he did in game two when Brooks was ejected. In that game, Williams played 28 minutes while putting up a nice stat line of 14/5/1 on his way to 23.75 fantasy points.
