NBA DFS 9/1: Fantasy Team Picks, Studs, Values, Projections, Match Centre on August 30: Utah and Denver go at loggerheads in game 7 of the playoffs as the series runs down all the way to the decider
The first series in the playoffs to require game 7 to determine the winner, the series between Utah Jazz and Denver Nuggets has been a truly special affair. Where a magnitude of the playoffs were lopsided affairs, Denver’s resillinace and fight and character ensured that their series didn’t unfold in the same manner.
Languishing in the series with a 3-1 deficit seeing them on the brink of exiting the season, Denver came back with a bang. Winning both of the last couple of showdowns, the side has not only drawn level but has ensured that today’s upcoming scrimmage will be determined by the barest of margins between two sides who have extremely little separating each other.
NBA DFS 9/1 Picks
Jamal Murray, 9,700
A rise of over 1,000 credits inside the space of two days shows what Jamal Murray is doing for Denver Nuggets at the moment. The point guard followed his 42 points display with a game winning 50 point performance in game 6, a showing which alluded to his radiant quality as a player.
With 21 points, 6 assists and 5 rebounds in the same, Utah Jazz’s Mike Conley continued in his electric manner. He’s been torching his way to a bevy of points inside the playoffs, a plyer who ability to shoot from the deep with a high conversion rate has served the side fruitfully.
Donovan Mitchell, 9,900
Where Murray is leaving no stone unturned to win the series for Denver, Donovan is sparing no expense to take Utah to greener pastures. His endeavours saw him pull off a behemoth 42 points in game 6, a showing which saw his side stay in the contest right till the culminating stages of the contest.
Gary Harris, 3,900
Its evident that Harris is going to need some time on the court before he’s bask to his imperious best. However, with over 20 minutes in his first scrimmage back on the court after a length injury, its clear that his flair is much needed for the side to make him our pick for this one.
OG Anunoby, 4,800
He’s been a steady source of points for the Raptors inside the bubble. Along with 12 points in game 1 of the conference semi-finals, Anunoby pulled off 7 attacking rebounds on the day to ensure his side’s attacking plays were converted at a high success rate.
Daniel Theis, 5,200
Daniel’s expansive ability in pulling off the boards and winning the battle of the boards saw Daniel accrue a solid amount of rebounds in game 1. It was a performance which took Boston to a 1-0 lead in the series as he pacified Raptors’ attack by quashing their repeated attempts to breach his paint.
Georges Niang, 3,500
His shooting arounds are refrained to showings as a substitute but that does little to faze us from making Niang our pick as the power forward. His ball handling abilities have seen him turnover the ball from defence to attack and transpire quick break points for the club.
Serge Ibaka, 6,200
At a time when the Raptors were struggling in form in the attacking component, Ibaka came up with a plucky performance in defence to keep his side in the game. His ability to occult shots saw him pile on a string of rebounds on the day as he guarded his side’s post articulately.
