Tips Fantasy NBA Playoffs M2

The first games of these Playoffs sure left us with some surprises, but we’re ready to get back on the horse right away

Embiid Centro dei Sixers

M1 gifted us with some relally amazing games and we expect the second game of these series to deliver as well. Let’s get to the tips, shall we?


  • Joel Embiid (Philadelphia 76ers, 19.2 credits): It’s time for Embiid to prove that he’s as clutch as they come when it matters the most and this match-up is the best possible for him out of all the contenders.
  • Jusuf Nurkic (Portland Trail Blazers, 14.5 credits): To say that Portland needs him at his best would be an understatement and he knows it, that’s why he delivered in game 1. We expect him to do the same in the second game of this series.


  • Kawhi Leonard (Los Angeles Clippers, 18.1 credits): He did very well, but it wasn’t enough for the Clippers. We see them as a slight favorite going into game 2 though, mainly because Kawhi is probably going to take matters into his own hands even more.
  • Jimmy Butler (Miami Heat, 17.1 credits): Despite scoring to send the game to overtime, he didn’t perform at his best in game 1, especially from a shooting standpoint. We doubt Jimmy can drop the ball twice in a row in the postseason.
  • Kristaps Porzingis (Dallas Mavericks, 13.3 credits): Talk about someone who underperformed… there goes KP. For a second there it seemed like he was playing for the Clippers. He can’t afford any more performances like that.


  • James Harden (Brooklyn Nets, 20.6 credits): After barely missing the double- and triple-double mark, we expect him to “make up for that” in game 2. He’s the playmaker of the best offensive team in the league after all.
  • Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers, 18.1 credits): There’s no way around it, we expect a monster series from Dame and that’s exactly what he teased in game 1.
  • Jrue Holiday (Milwaukee Bucks, 12.6 credits): The Bucks needed a player like him and game 1 perfectly showed the reason why. Not that we expect him to log double-doubles night in and night out, but he’s definitely a Playoff kind of guy, so just pick him.


  • Doc Rivers (Philadelphia 76ers, 10.7 credits): Despite the trouble they went through in game 1, this is the easiest series to predict and we would bet on the Sixers every single time.
