There are two Game 3 tip-offs Saturday, and there are some risks with big-time players on the high-scoring Golden State Warriors.

Guard Klay Thompson ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) has been held to 26.6 FantasyScore points per game in the series. Forward Draymond Green's ($6,500, 13.0%) production has dropped to a meager 29.9 fantasy points per in this series. Though they can go off for 40 at any time,You expect to get more from players for those prices.

Start

G Stephen Curry, Warriors at Grizzlies
$8,100 salary | 16.2% of cap

Steph will be hungry coming off a 32.8-fantasy-point Game 1, and no one has more big-game potential.

F Paul Millsap, Hawks at Wizards
$6,800 salary | 13.6% of cap

He's averaging a dominant 47.5 fantasy points per game in his last three games, which makes him a top-flight start.

C Al Horford, Hawks at Wizards
$6,100 salary | 12.2% of cap

Horford has been a mauler underneath with 46.4 fantasy points per game in the series.

F Otto Porter, Wizards at Hawks
$3,500 salary | 7.0% of cap

Porter followed up a solid Game 1 with 38.5 fantasy points in Game 2. With John Wall (wrist) likely out, Porter's number will be called more.

G Ramon Sessions, Wizards at Hawks
$3,500 salary | 7.0% of cap

Sessions is a no-doubt start with Wall likely out, as evidenced by his 31.8 fantasy points in a Wall-less Game 2.

F Jeff Green, Grizzlies vs. Warriors
$4,000 salary | 8.0% of cap

Green has been an afterthought in the offense with no more than 24 fantasy points in his last nine games.
