High Salary SG

James Harden ($11,800): Harden had 59.3 fantasy points in Game 4, decimating the Minnesota defense in that infamous third quarter. He only managed three assists, which is unlikely to happen again. Whether he’s scoring or passing, Harden will put 60 fantasy points. *****

Donovan Mitchell ($8,600): Mitchell’s salary has finally climbed to where he needs 36.7 fantasy points. Seeing as he’s been over that number in all four games and he looks better with each passing game, that should not be a problem. The Thunder defense is broken and Mitchell’s play is a big reason why. He’ll be over 40 fantasy points. ****

High Value SG

Eric Gordon ($5,400): Gordon was over value for the first time all series in Game 4, finishing with 25.2 fantasy points. It was his first time over value coming off the bench in eight games. The hope is that he’s in rhythm following Game 4, but I’m weary. The only reason I like him a little is because I think Houston runs Minnesota out of the building and Gordon plays a hand in that. ***

Kyle Korver ($4,300): Korver had 29.1 fantasy points in Game 4. Despite his Game 3 performance, he’s the second most reliable option on the Cavaliers right now. He gets his shots in the offense and picks up a few rebounds. LeBron James trusts him, which counts for a lot given everyone else around him, most of whom he doesn’t trust just yet due to their lack of experience alongside him. ***
