Golden State Warriors DFS Notes

Klay Thompson went for 21 points, two rebounds and an assist in Monday’s 126-106 win. He hit 9-of-19 shots and 3-of-8 from beyond the arc. Klay scored 19 with five triples in Game 1, and the potent combination of he, Steph Curry and Jordan Poole has proven to be a lethal three-point threat to Denver’s defense. Expect more of the same from Thompson in Game 3 on Thursday.

Denver Nuggets DFS Notes

Nikola Jokic finished with 26 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and a steal across 28 minutes before his ejection in the fourth quarter of Monday's matchup with the Warriors. Jokic was harassed all night by Draymond Green, and the two got tangled up under the basket on a shot attempt midway through the fourth quarter. Jokic was clearly upset that no foul was called and let the refs know about it. His appeals were a bit too much and earned him a second technical. There haven't been any easy buckets for Jokic, who's seen double-teams and nagging defense constantly throughout this series. The Nuggets will head back to Denver down 2-0 and in desperate need of a victory.
