Oklahoma City Thunder DFS Notes
Ty Jerome matched his season-high of 23 points in a 118-97 loss to the Warriors on Thursday. The Thunder were run out of the building so it's hard to take much from this game. Jerome was certainly one of the few bright spots, hitting 8-of-14 shots and 4-of-4 free throws with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and three triples in 22 minutes. He's still just a deep-league option, at best.
Golden State Warriors DFS Notes
Stephen Curry dropped 34 points in an easy 118-97 win over the Thunder on Thursday, adding seven assists, four rebounds, one steal and six triples in 31 minutes. The Warriors have five games left and all of them happen to be at home, including one more against the Thunder. Curry’s level of play will have them confident going into their inevitable play-in games regardless of how short-handed the team is, as he’s playing at a level that is simply unheard of. In the last month, Curry has lapped everyone else as the No. 1 fantasy player with 36.9 points, 7.1 triples, 5.9 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 0.9 steals on 49% shooting.
