NBA Finals Game 6 Draftstars Daily Fantasy Tips

June 16th 2016, 12:49pm, By: Johnny Houston

Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) is continuing to grow in Australia and to help you take advantage of the large amounts of money on offer to win we will be offering our NBA team for game 6 of the NBA Finals with DFS website Draftstars.


The NBA Finals really took a turn in Game 5. The suspension of Draymond Green obviously hurt the Warriors defensively and now the injury to Andrew Bogut has made things really interesting. Not to mention how the refs are allowing such a physical game.

Now the series heads back to Ohio and all the momentum seems to be with the Cavs. LeBron and Kyrie broke all kinds of records. While Kevin Love had 2 points and 3 rebounds in 32mins. Tristan Thompson came up big on the boards with 15 rebounds and J.R Smith finally contributed with 10 points.

On the Golden State side. Andre Iguodala took advantage of Green’s absence on both offense and Defense. The splash brothers were back to their old selves combining for 62 points including 11 (3PM). Shaun Livingston only played 21 minutes but was very economical with 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 assist and 7 points.

Stacking a team in these single game daily fantasy tournaments is usually my preferred method of strategy. However, for Game 6 I am going with a well-balanced team strategy. We are looking for a score of approximately 275 which equates to about 30 fantasy points per player.

Draftstars DFS NBA Finals Game 6 Lineup 

PG – Kyrie Irving ($17,400) Cleveland

Uncle Drew has definitely found something. He is averaging 55.875 fantasy points since game 3. He is dialled in and you can’t afford to leave him out.

PG – Shaun Livingston ($8,000) Golden State

I would usually take the two-star Point Guards from each team. However, I believe this game will play into the hands of a slow tempo (Cleveland) game style. Which means sacrificing on guards so we can stack in the forward department. Livingston plays good minutes and always chips in for at least 15 FP.

SG – Leandro Barbosa ($5,250) Golden State

The first of our basement players. Barbosa is still seeing plenty of court time. He played well in Cleveland last time. Scoring 8 points in 17 mins for 15.75 FP. That type of score would be an acceptable contribution in Game 6.

SG – Iman Shumpert ($5,550) Cleveland

Tyronn Lue gave Shumpert 26 mins in Game 5 and although he only had 10.25 FP at $5,550 he is worth the risk. Remember we are spending less on guards so we can spend big on forwards.

SF – LeBron James ($22,500) Cleveland

41 points, 16 rebounds, 7 assists and 84.25 FP. Need I say more.

SF- Richard Jefferson ($5,000) Cleveland

He continues to be a great role player and if Kevin Love continues to stink it up we could see plenty more minutes for Mr Jefferson. Must have at $5,000

PF- Draymond Green ($19,450) Golden State

Green is still favourite for finals MVP despite missing Game 5. That tells me that the sportsbooks believe he will bounce back and have a big impact on the game. The injury to Bogut will leave a lot of the rebounding duties to Green. Love or hate him he averages almost 42 FPPG.

PF – Tristan Thompson ($11,050) Cleveland

The reason I am including Thompson in my line up is “Rebounds”. I believe this game will have the lowest shooting percentage of the Finals. That means plenty of opportunities for Thompson. He has definitely been the surprise packet in this series averaging 25 FP.

C – Festus Ezeli ($5,400) Golden State

With Andrew Bogut out this inclusion seems automatic. The Warriors do have the option to play “small ball” with Green back in the line-up. However, Ezeli should play plenty of minutes and that’s all you want from your $5k players.
