NBA Playoffs


The NBA Playoffs keep rolling as the Raptors come into Cleveland trying to notch an early lead on LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Raptors back court of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan will need to be in full attack mode this entire series if they want to knock off the #2 seed Cavaliers in a 7 game series. Lowry and DeRozan did not play very well in the previous series against the Bucks, but against the Cavs, the games are going to be more up tempo. Higher tempo equals more DFS points for the back court.

On the Cavaliers side of things, the Big 3 has had a ton of rest, and will look to take the lead on their home floor tonight against a Raptors team that did not impress in their last series. King James looks to stay hot again tonight after having an electrifying series against the Indiana Pacers. Consider playing LeBron James in all your lineups. We think LeBron and the Cavs are going to come out and make a statement to the Warriors. We think the Cavaliers finish business in 5 games at most, and will look to roll onto the Eastern Conference Finals against the winner of the Celtics vs Wizards series.
