• D.J. Augustin - G - Orlando Magic

    D.J. Augustin ended his regular season with 18 points (7-of-13 shooting) and three 3-pointers on Wednesday night.

    Augustin was rarely an exciting fantasy player, but he came away with top-130 value and vaults into the top-95 in terms of total value thanks to 81 games. Most of his value came from 5.3 assists and 1.6 threes per game as well as an .870 mark from the charity stripe and a career-high .468 conversion rate from the field. There's been a lot of talk this year about how Orlando needs a point guard, but Augustin did a pretty nice job while everyone was scrambling to find his replacement.

  • Stephen Curry - G - Golden State Warriors

    Stephen Curry scored 36 points in Saturday's 110-99 Game 3 win over the Blazers, adding six rebounds, three assists and five turnovers.

    Curry led his team offensively, contributing 36 points on 11-for-26 shooting. On a night where teammate Draymond Green was the primary facilitator, Curry settled in on scoring the bulk of his team's points from off the ball screens and shots from behind the arc. The Warriors have the luxury to allow for multiple ball-handlers and Curry seemed happy to acquiesce as he and Klay Thompson combined for 55 points with seven 3-pointers. Look for Curry to continue to lead the team in scoring as Kevin Durant is not expected to be back this series.

  • Damian Lillard - G - Trail Blazers

    Shams Charania of The Athletic is reporting that Damian Lillard has been playing through separated ribs in the Western Conference Finals.

    Charania and Sam Amick have since reported that the injury occurred in Game 2 when Kevon Looney landed on Lillard's ribs. To this point he's playing with a pad on his torso, though his current run of poor shooting extends back into the second round before the injury was sustained. The Blazers are facing a deep hole down 0-3 to the Warriors, and Lillard will surely be finishing out the series despite his injury. Between the ailment and Golden State selling out to stop him, Lillard has had to battle through quite a bit in the WCF.

  • Damian Jones - C - Golden State Warriors

    Damian Jones got the start for the Warriors but played just three minutes after picking up three fouls in the first quarter to finish with no other countable statistic in Saturday's win.

    Jones got the start and then got the hook early after drawing three fouls in the first 3:17 of Game 3. Jones got the start over Andrew Bogut after playing just two minutes in Game 2 and two minutes in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals. Bogut and Jones played a combined six minutes this game and did not contribute anything offensively. Jordan Bell and Kevon Looney picked up the slack and ended up playing 42 minutes and contributing 14 points. It is unlikely that Jones will start again going into Game 4.

  • Draymond Green - F - Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green went off on Saturday's win, posting a monster 20-13-12 line and adding four steals and one block.

    Draymond was all over the court for the Warriors posting his seventh career postseason triple-double. With his team down 13 points to start the second half, Green channeled his inner Magic Johnson and rallied the Warriors with six rebounds, six assists and two steals to take the lead going into the fourth quarter. His defensive intensity continues to be a catalyst for the team and is a major reason why the Warriors continue to dominate in this series.

  • Maurice Harkless - F - Trail Blazers

    Moe Harkless scored six points and added three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in Saturday's loss.

    Harkless did all of his damage in the first half and looked to be on his way to a great game scoring six points and adding two steals/blocks. Unfortunately he would not score again and added just one assist to his stat line in the second half. Fellow forward Al-Farouq Aminu added just two points in the losing effort and he and Harkless continue to get marginalized in the Blazers' small-ball lineup. Harkless has the ability to contribute for the team and they will need him to re-find his aggressiveness if the they plan on making this a series.

  • Seth Curry - G - Trail Blazers

    Seth Curry went 2-for-6 from the field for five points, adding three rebounds, one steal and one turnover in Saturday's loss.

    Curry continues to play heavy minutes for the Blazers, playing 30 minutes in the Game 3 loss. Unfortunately, similar to the rest of his team, he could not get much going offensively by contributing just five points and not much else. The team continues to feature a small lineup featuring Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum, and Curry in hopes of pushing the tempo. Expect him to continue to see big minutes off the bench as he hopes to contribute more offensively in Game 4.

  • Andre Iguodala - G/F - Golden State Warriors

    Andre Iguodala was limited to 18 minutes in Saturday's Game 3 win because of left calf tightness and is expected to undergo an MRI on Sunday.

    Iguodala posted two points, five rebounds, two assists and a steal while going 1-of-5 from the field. With the Warriors taking a stranglehold on the series with tonight's win, it's fair to question whether or not they ask Iguodala to push through his injury. It doesn't appear to be overly serious but we will find out more tomorrow.

  • Damian Lillard - G - Trail Blazers

    Damian Lillard shot 3-for-9 from behind the arc on 5-for-18 overall on Saturday, resulting in just 19 points with six rebounds, six assists, two steals and five turnovers in 40 minutes.

    Lillard’s shooting woes continue into Game 3. He and CJ McCollum shot a combined 12-for-38 from the field, 5-for-19 on 3-pointers and 13-for-20 from the free throw line in the loss. Three games into Western Conference Finals, Dame has shot 15-for-46 from the field. The Blazers will lean on Lillard to find his shot going into Game 4 where they host the Warriors in hopes of extending the series.

  • Meyers Leonard - F/C - Trail Blazers

    Meyers Leonard got the start at center for Portland and scored 16 points on 6-for-12 shooting, adding three 3-pointers, three rebounds and four assists in Saturday's loss.

    Leonard got the start over Enes Kanter before the start of the game and responded well by scoring 16 points. Though quiet in the second half, he was a difference maker in the first half with his hustle and ability to stretch the floor. Kanter, who moved to the bench, responded with seven points in seven minutes and did not do much to bump Leonard out of the starting lineup going into Game 4.

  • Andre Iguodala - G/F - Golden State Warriors

    After a brief trip to the locker room at the end of the first quarter on Saturday, Andre Iguodala has checked back into the game in the second quarter.

    Apparently, there's no cause for concern and Iguodala is back in. Every time the 34-year-old veteran heads to the locker room, there's always a risk and some accompanying worry. All good. Iguodala and his elite defense is back on the floor to hassle the Blazers.
