Tips Fantasy NBA Playoffs M1

God bless the NBA Playoffs! The postseason is finally back, and so are our fantasy tips: as usual, 3 names per role and a coach

LeBron James Stella dei Lakers

The regular season is over, but our fantasy basketball is not! As a matter of fact, we’ll stay with you until the end of the Playoff, as usual. In the first round we are going to witness some amazing match-ups, some of which are really tough to call. Don’t worry though, our tips will save the day!


  • James Harden (Houston Rockets, 20.7 credits): The Beard is going to be on his own for quite some time as Westbrook will miss the 1st game against the Thunder and, most likely, at least one more. He’ll give his heart and soul to secure the win in Game 1: you need to have him on your team.
  • Kyle Lowry (Toronto Raptors, 13.7 credits): After multiple great performances in the seeding games, the leader of the Toronto Raptors has the chance to do it again, especially considering the weaknesses of the Brooklyn Nets.
  • Goran Dragic (Miami Heat, 8.5 credits): He didn’t participate in all of the sedding games, but when he did his presence did not go unnoticed. In Game 1 against the Pacers, he can make a difference for the Heat.


  • LeBron James (Los Angeles Lakers, 21.4 credits): King James is back in the Playoffs, do you rally need any other reason to get him on your team?
  • Pascal Siakam (Toronto Raptors, 14 credits): Anything can happen on an NBA court, but it’s likely that the Raptors will run through the Nets, maybe even sweep them. Spicy P already showed last year that he can perform big time under pressure, so we expect him to dominate round 1.
  • Kelly Olynyk (Miami Heat, 6.7 credits): He might not be your first option, but since the Pacers are going to have some problems under the rim because of Sabonis’ absence, Olynyk should be able to make the best of it.


  • Nikola Jokic (Denver Nuggets, 19.2 credits): He’s the Nuggets’ leader in PPG, RPG and APG. His team’s chance to make it out of the first round depends almost solely on his performances, so we’re exprecting him to be one of the best options for M1.
  • Serge Ibaka (Toronto Raptors, 11.2 credits): The whole season he’s been a fickle fantasy player as he went from an amazing performance to a poor one: in Game 1, he should be able to take advantage of the holes in the Nets’ defence.
  • Dwight Howard (Los Angeles Lakers, 8.2 credits): The Portland Trail Blazers proved to be one of the best offensive team in the league, but also one of the worst as far as defence goes. Moreover, Terry Stotts’ team concedes many offensve rebounds to the opponents, and that’s where Howard comes into play.


  • Nick Nurse (Toronto Raptors, 9.3 credits): Considering the Raptors will probably win without breaking a sweat, he’s pretty cheap compared to the other top coaches. Trust us, Nurse is the way!
