There are two Game 6's tonight as the Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Clippers try to force a Game 7.

The forward spot has the most luster Thursday. Los Angeles Clippers power forward Blake Griffin, San Antonio Spurs small forward Kawhi Leonard and Chicago Bulls tag team Pau Gasol and Jimmy Butler should be in your lineups.

The guard pool is sketchy, so you'll have to roll the dice a bit.

Start

G Chris Paul, Clippers at Spurs
$8,100 salary | 16.2% of cap

Outside of a 17.8-point stinker in Game 3, CP3 has 44 FantasyScore points or more in four of the five games. He's alone in the top tier in a light guard pool.

C DeAndre Jordan, Clippers at Spurs
$7,000 salary | 14.0% of cap

There are only two centers to consider, and Jordan is the safest with 34.5-plus fantasy points in four of five games.

F Tim Duncan, Spurs vs. Clippers
$6,600 salary | 13.2% of cap

"The Big Fundamental" has found the fountain of youth with 50.6 fantasy points per game in the last two, and he has 48-plus in three of the five games.

G Derrick Rose, Bulls at Bucks
$5,800 salary | 11.6% of cap

Rose has plummeted to 24.6 fantasy points per game the last two, but he has the most upside in the guard pool after CP3.

F Khris Middleton, Bucks vs. Bulls
$5,200 salary | 10.4% of cap

Four of five games of 30-plus points on FantasyScore make Middleton a solid midrange buy.

F John Henson, Bucks vs. Bulls
$3,200 salary | 6.4% of cap

He's averaging 27.6 fantasy points per game in the series, and you can't go wrong at his price.

Bench

G Danny Green, Spurs vs. Clippers
$4,100 salary | 8.2% of cap

Green has scored 16 or fewer fantasy points in four of the five games this series.

F Ersan Ilyasova, Bucks vs. Bulls
$4,300 salary | 8.6% of cap

Ilyasova's 26.3-point showing on FantasyScore in Game 1 was his high for the series, and he hasn't touched 20 since.
