Memphis Grizzlies DFS Notes
Desmond Bane (lower back soreness) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Game 3 against the Warriors on Saturday. This is worth noting simply because Bane didn’t look right at all in Game 2, scoring just five points on 2-of-7 shooting, and he wasn’t very good in Game 1 either. It’s no secret that his back is bothering him and it shows, but the positive takeaway is that he’s had three full days off, which can only help the injury. Hopefully the rest will help Bane get back to the player we saw be so consistently productive over the course of the regular season.
Golden State Warriors DFS Notes
Stephen Curry hit 11-of-25 shots and 3-of-11 3-pointers for a team-high 27 points, nine rebounds, eight assists and a steal in Tuesday's 106-101 loss to the Grizzlies. Klay Thompson hit just 5-of-19 shots and 2-of-12 3-pointers for 12 points and the Warriors weren't able to overcome it. Steph and Klay combined to hit just 5-of-23 3-pointers tonight and were 8-of-22 from downtown in Game 1. They're going to need to start shooting it better from beyond the arc going forward if they plan on winning a championship this season.
