There are two playoff games tonight that feature some exciting Fantasy Basketball matchups that you can play on Monkey Knife Fight.

a 3-2 series lead.

The Los Angeles Clippers have won two straight games at home and will try to steal Game 5 against the Utah Jazz probably without Kawhi Leonard.

Trae Young LESS THAN 27.5 POINTS

  • Trae Young has scored less than 27.5 points in two of the last three games in the Sixers series. He had 28 points and 35 points in the games where he went above 27.5 points in the series.

  • Young recorded 27 or fewer points in 33 of 63 regular-season matchups and averaged 25.5 points during the regular-season campaign. 

  • In two regular-season games versus the Sixers, Young scored above 27.5 points in one of the two matchups. 


  • Simmons dished out nine assists in Game 4 and is averaging 8.3 assists in this series so far.

  • He has produced more than 7.5 dimes in six of his 9 postseason games.

  • The 76ers guard dished out eight or more assists in 21 regular-season contests, averaged 7.9 assists at home in the regular-season.

  • The Australian's assists-per-game total at home is sitting at 10.2 during the playoffs..



Paul George MORE THAN 28.5 POINTS

  • With Kawhi Leonard done for the season with an ACL injury, all eyes will be on PG13 to lead the charge for the Clipper's offense.

  • George dropped 31 points in back-to-back Clippers wins in Games 3 and 4 and that was with Kawhi Leonard in the fold. In Game 2, he had 27 points, so he should at least sniff around the 28.5 total if he doesn't go over.

  • He is, however, producing a career 17.6 points against the Jazz and failed to score above 28.5 points in all three regular-season games this season and averaged 24.8 PPG in the regular-season.

Donovan Mitchell MORE THAN 32.5 POINTS

  • Mitchell has scored more than 32.5 points in three of the last four playoff games and is averaging 37.7 points against the Clippers this series. With no Kawhi, expect his output to remain the same, if not higher. 

  • The Louisville product recorded 37 points in Game 4 and made 13 free throws. In eight playoff games, Mitchell's points-per-game average comes in at 32.9.

  • He's cashed at least 5 three-pointers in five straight playoff contests.
