The Heat-Warriors matchup should be a competitive contest and it is full of top-tier talent, with great complementary value plays.
Stephen Curry is the highest priced player in the contest but is still a solid choice to build around. Combine him with Gary Payton, who can turn in great value, as he is picking up more minutes in the Warriors' rotation. Andrew Wiggins, Draymond Green and Jordan Poole are ideal mid priced options.
On the other side, Jimmy Butler and Kyle Lowry should be able to live up to their hefty price tags, as they will have to come up big the lead the shorthanded Heat. Tyler Herro and Omer Yurtseven are good mid priced picks, who are seeing additional playing time for the squad. Caleb Martin is priced for value, while he is expected to pick up the start.
