We have a pair of Game 3's this weekend with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors leading their series 2-0.

Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving (knee) and Atlanta Hawks guard/forward Kyle Korver (ankle) are your walking wounded, and they should be avoided.

Houston Rockets guard James Harden is coming off a series-high 71 FantasyScore points in Game 2 and should be in your lineups.


F LeBron James, Cavaliers vs. Hawks
$8,200 salary | 16.4% of cap

LBJ is averaging 53.9 fantasy points in the first two games of the series and hasn't been below 44.8 in the last 10 games.

C Dwight Howard, Rockets vs. Warriors
$7,000 salary | 14.0% of cap

"Superman" returned for 19 points and 17 boards in Game 2 and is the leader of the pack at center.

G Jeff Teague, Hawks at Cavaliers
$5,900 salary | 11.8% of cap

Teague has been on a roll with 36.3 fantasy points per game the last three.

F Tristan Thompson, Cavaliers vs. Hawks
$4,000 salary | 8.0% of cap

He has scored 30 or more on FantasyScore the last three games, and he is a steal at this salary.


F DeMarre Carroll, Hawks at Cavaliers
$4,500 salary | 9.0% of cap

Carroll is relied upon so heavily on defense against LeBron James that he has averaged a mere 12.3 fantasy points in this series.

C Andrew Bogut, Warriors at Rockets
$4,200 salary | 8.4% of cap

He teased with 38 FantasyScore points in Game 2, but he has too many off nights like his seven-point Game 1.
