As the minutes ticked down in game 3 of the conference semi-finals between the Raptors and Boston Celtics, things looked to eb going awry for the Raptors. The side was trailing Boston Celtics, a deficit which threatened to end their stay in the showpiece league.
However, the tough get going when the going is arduous and the Raptors lived upto that narrative. The club showed immense vigour and fortitude to pluck out a hard fought 104-103 win on the day, one which sees the side hang onto threads to maintain relevance in the series which is finely poised as things stand at 2-1.
DraftKings NBA DFS Picks
Kyle Lowry, 7,800
Kyle Lowry has done everything required from him in the playoffs. After being in scrumptious touch in the playoffs, he’s come alive in the semi-finals as well with him delivering in every facet of the game in game 3 to help his side reduce the deficit to 2-1.
Monte Morris, 4,100
With 12 point and 4 rebounds in game 1 of the semi-finals, Morris showed he deserved an elevated role in Denver’s shooting arounds. His ability to pull off handles and crossovers is capable of leaving side’s in a quagmire to see him represent us from the side.
Norman Powell, 4,200
Powell has completely lost his way after the playoffs. He’s been in horrendous touch in the semi-finals but with the Raptors failing to find suitable options to plug their scoring dilemma, Powell’s acumen will be relied upon today as well.
Kawhi Leonard, 10,400
Kawhi once again touched the roof with his 29 point performance in game seeing him side rout Denver Nuggets 120-97. And with Denver’s predicaments in defence set to continue today as well, Kawhi should end up with a high success rate when shooting from the deep to see him come out with a double-double from the contest.
Torrey Craig, 3,600
He endured a lacklustre showing the last time around but that does little to faze us from opting from Torrey. The bubble has been a watershed moment for the small forward with his windmills and reverse scoops seeing him emerge as a steady source of points for his side.
Monte Morris, 5,400
Dependable as ever, Monte came up with yet another well versed performance inside the paint for the Clippers. His 18 points and 5 rebounds ensured Denver were kept busy with his alleyoops and reverse scoops seeing him ease his way past to a string of baskets.
Nikola Jokic, 9,500
Nikola’s decline in form in game 1 of the semi-finals against the Clippers had a major part to play in his side’s defeat on the day. However, he’s someone who hardly fails twice, a player whose endeavours saw him guide his side to consummate success against Utah Jazz
Ivica Zubac, 4,800
Once again reliable under the post, Zubac spared no chance to protect his paint in game 1. Along with his 7 rebounds, he showed how deadly he can be when delivering jump shots as well as he shot 9 inside the paint to see him complete our set of picks for today.
