NBA DFS Playoff Preview Warriors vs Kings Game 6
As the Western Conference First-Round Playoffs continue, the Sacramento Kings are facing a do-or-die situation on the road against the Golden State Warriors in Game 6. The game promises to be a thrilling matchup, with a spread set at 7.5 points and a total of 234.5 points.
Despite a consistent rotation throughout the series, the Kings have seen a decrease in playing time for Kevin Huerter in the last two games, with Malik Monk stepping up off the bench. However, De’Aaron Fox has been a standout player, averaging an impressive 54 fantasy points per game, even playing with a fractured finger in Game 5. Harrison Barnes has also shown potential for big games, making him a valuable option for DFS players.
Although Keegan Murray was a non-factor in the first few games of the series, he has been making strides, averaging 25 fantasy points in the last two games. Meanwhile, Domantas Sabonis continues to see his price drop on both sites, making him a solid choice for DFS players.
Stephen Curry has been a consistent performer throughout the first five games of the series against the Sacramento Kings. Despite the Kings’ best efforts to limit his output, he has managed to score at least 28 points in each game, with a high of 36 points in Game 3. His shooting percentages have been impressive, with a field goal percentage of 48.0% or higher in every game, and a three-point percentage of 42.9% or higher in four of the five games. He has also been an asset in other areas, averaging over four assists and nearly one steal per game. While the Kings may have slowed him down at times, Curry has still been a force to be reckoned with in this series.
When it comes to Game 6, it’s hard to overlook Klay Thompson‘s impressive performances in past game sixes. Jordan Poole has also been a valuable contributor for the Warriors, topping 24 fantasy points in four of the five games and starting the last two games alongside Draymond Green, who has made a significant impact on the series.
The Kings must focus on their team play and ball movement if they hope to win in a challenging scenario. Meanwhile, the Warriors, who have struggled on the road this season, proved themselves with a crucial Game 5 win. With players like Curry, Thompson, and Green, along with promising role players, the Warriors remain a formidable opponent.
As the tension builds and the stakes increase, Game 6 promises to be an exhilarating showdown between two teams fighting to keep their playoff hopes alive. It will be fascinating to see who emerges victorious.
Stephen Curry – Despite the Kings’ attempt to limit his output in this series, Curry remains one of the best players in the league and a top option for DFS players. With his playing minutes in the 40s and his consistent performance, he’s an excellent pick and could potentially put up big numbers at any time.
Klay Thompson – Dubbed “game six Klay” for his impressive performances in game sixes, Thompson is a must-lock for this game. With six of his last eight game sixes featuring 25 or more actual points, he has the potential for a breakout performance that could provide excellent value for DFS lineups.
De’Aaron Fox – Despite playing with a fractured finger in Game 5, Fox still put up an impressive 27 points, 12 rebounds, and 6 assists. He’s been a standout player in this series with an average of 54 fantasy points per game, making him an elite play for DFS lineups.
Malik Monk – With Kevin Huerter‘s playing time diminishing in the last two games, Monk has stepped up off the bench and is a great value play for DFS lineups. He’s a good bet for 28-30 minutes and has averaged over 30 fantasy points per game in the series.
Harrison Barnes – While Barnes can be inconsistent, he’s a cheap option that can fill out DFS lineups. He has games where he puts up 30+ fantasy points and is not overly popular, making him a great option for those looking for a low-owned play.
Keegan Murray – After being a non-factor in the first three games of the series, Murray has stepped up and provided value in the last two games. Although he’s an inconsistent rookie playing in an elimination game, there’s a path for him to pay off his salary and provide value for DFS lineups. He’s a good option for those looking to save some salary and add depth to their lineup.
As we wrap up our analysis of the upcoming Game 6 between the Golden State Warriors and the Sacramento Kings, it’s clear that both teams have a lot on the line. With the Kings facing elimination on the road and the Warriors looking to clinch the series and advance to the next round, tensions will be high and every play will matter.
DFS players have plenty of options to choose from when building their lineups, with players like Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and De’Aaron Fox standing out as elite plays, while value options like Malik Monk, Harrison Barnes, and Keegan Murray provide opportunities to save salary and add depth to lineups. As always, the playoffs are unpredictable, but one thing is for sure: it’s going to be an exciting game filled with top-notch basketball and plenty of opportunities for DFS players to come out on top.
