For the next two-game, two-night slate we have Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals on Thursday and Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Friday.
With the Warriors back home looking to put away the Mavericks in Golden State, Luka should have plenty of gas left in the tank to push this series one additional game. The question lies around the supporting cast, can they provide enough juice to continue to bother the Curry-led Warriors? Tomorrow, we have a must-win game for the Heat as they travel to take on the Celtics in Boston. Coming off a less than spirited effort in back-to-back games, does Erik Spoelstra have a rabbit in the hat to pull off a huge road win and force a game 7?
Let’s jump into some of my favorite plays with so many exciting story lines!
Luka Doncic ($12,000) – The fact that Luka shot only 3-for-11 from the 3-point line in Game 4 and still amassed a 70-point DFS effort makes me believe he has another all-world game left in the tank to push the Warriors at home in this series. While I am not confident he will flirt with a triple-double once again in this contest, I do fully anticipate a strong scoring outing along with double-digit rebounds. The highest price player on this slate is well worth the price of admission.
Bam Adebayo ($6,700) – Bam has been one of the many inconsistent stars in this series for the Heat, trading off great games with disappearing acts. In a must-win game on the road, I trust Bam to play with confidence and offensive passion leading to another double-double performance. Priced under $7K offers us plenty of flexibility to take a flier on a player who has heard the noise and should come out assertive in Game 6.
Maxi Kleber ($4,300) – Maxi is one of many Mavericks players to snap out of a shooting slump in this series in Game 4, and I expect Maxi to once again come out firing off the bench and provide the needed spark for Luka and company to keep this game close. Coming off a game where he had foul trouble and still amassed over 30 fantasy points, I trust Kleber to continue to play important minutes for this team regardless of the final outcome in the series.
