Steven Adams scored nine points (4-7 FGA, 1-2 FTA) with 10 rebounds and one block over 25 minutes during the Thunder’s 124-92 loss against the Spurs.

Although the Thunder got destroyed on Saturday, Adams fell just one point shy of his second consecutive playoff double-double. Adams has also been more active on offense, taking more shots and everything. Adams could be a respectable DFS going forward. He's a cheap, solid DFS option. He'll see time on the floor and contribute in the rebounding category while he's improving offensively as well.

Russell Westbrook scored 14 points (5-19 FGA, 4-4 FTA) with nine assists, two rebounds and two steals over 30 minutes during the Thunder’s 124-92 loss against the Spurs.

It was a brutal night for Westbrook missing five more shots than he had points. Maybe he should think about Mark Cuban’s comments some more prior to Game 2. It was Westbrook’s first playoff game this season in which he didn’t record a double-double. If the Thunder are going to upset the Spurs, they need both Kevin Durant and Westbrook to play four flawless games. Fantasy owners should expect something close to flawless for Westbrook in Game 2.

Kevin Durant scored 16 points (6-15 FGA, 4-4 FTA) with right rebounds and six assists over 33 minutes during the Thunder’s 124-92 loss against the Spurs.

To put it nicely, Kevin Durant has not been good this postseason. As it has come to fruition more lately, Durant seems like a guy who always gets a pass when he and the Thunder don’t succeed. To put it simply, he needs to step up and play at the MVP level we’ve all grown accustomed to. He hasn’t reached 20 points twice in three games after scoring at least 20 in 63 consecutive games. It’s unacceptable. Fantasy owners can’t be happy either as there’s no way Durant is coming close to hitting his DFS value.
