The Big Fail 

PF, Anthony Davis, New Orleans Pelicans vs Golden State Warriors

I know that you are reading and thinking "Alonzo Warond is crazy", but Anthony Davis is playing his first playoff game (the big pressure) and he is playing versus Golden State Warriors.

11.000$ is a lot of budget for tonight. Try to avoid him, because Bogut, Igoudala and Green will play the great defense vs Anthony Davis.


Try to avoid for tonight: Derrick Rose (6.600$). He is not 100% ready and Bucks is not serious opponents versus Bulls. He will not play in the Derick Rose's speed mode, so leave him and select another point guard.
