sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Thompson hit 3-of-5 from downtown and with his splash brother, Stephen Curry, making 8-of-13 at the 3-point line, Memphis had no chance. Thompson also had eight rebounds and three assists. Golden State won Game 6, 108-95.

Grizzlies center Marc Gasol scored 21 points to lead Memphis in scoring during Game 6 of the Western Conference Semifinals on Friday.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Unfortunately, Memphis just didn't have enough deep shooting to stay in this series. Golden State outscored Memphis, 45-12, from behind the arc in Game 6. The 3-point shooting was lopsided in all four of Golden State's victories. Gasol is an unrestricted free agent this offseason, so he could have played his last game in Memphis.

sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Curry finished 11-of-25 from the field, including 8-for-13 at the 3-point line. He had 32 points, 10 assists and six rebounds. Curry hit a crazy 3-quarters court shot at the buzzer to end the third quarter and that really seemed to deflate the Grizzlies as they had to work so hard to climb back into the game in the third. Golden State pulled away in the fourth. This is the first time since 1976 the Warriors are advancing to the Western Conference Finals.

Impact
Beal was the Wizards best player. He also had six rebounds, three assists and a steal. He should be on quite a bit of fantasy owners' radars next season.

Cavaliers forward LeBron James was one rebound away from a triple-double as Cleveland defeated Chicago, 94-73, in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
James didn't shoot well, 7-of-23, including 0-for-4 from downtown, but he played more of a facilitator role in Game 6, which was incredible considering Kevin Love wasn't playing and Kyrie Irving missed the final two and a half quarters. James finished with 15 points, 11 assists, nine rebounds and two blocks. James is making his sixth straight trip to the Eastern Conference Finals.

Bulls shooting guard Jimmy Butler scored 20 points to lead Chicago in scoring in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals versus Cleveland.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
It was a terrible showing for Chicago's offense. They scored 31 points in the first quarter, but they scored 33 points in the next two and a half quarters. The Bulls shot 37.5 percent from the field and 20 percent from downtown. Butler was 8-for-22 from the field, including 2-of-6 at the 3-point line. He also had five rebounds, one assist and one steal. Expect big changes for the Bulls this offseason.

Cavaliers guard Matthew Dellavedova led Cleveland with 19 points, shooting 7-of-11 from the field, including 3-pointers as the Cavaliers routed the Bulls, 94-73, in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Dellavedova was forced to play big minutes with Kyrie Irving out with a knee injury. Irving probably could have gutted it out, but it was pointless with how well Dellavedova was playing. He is a better defender than Irving, so the Bulls had a hard time erasing a 14-point halftime deficit with Dellavedova guarding Derrick Rose. Dellavedova also led the team in scoring. This is likely a one-time fantasy relevant deal for Dellavedova, but if Irving's injuries linger, he is worth a look in daily leagues.

News
Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving is doubtful to return to Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Thursday.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
That's probably because the Cavaliers have played so well without him. Game 6 was tied, 35-35, in the second quarter, but Cleveland went on a, 23-9, run to finish the first half without Irving. Cleveland is a better defensive team without Irving, and they will hold Irving out as long as Game 6 remains in hand. At halftime, Cleveland led Chicago, 58-44.

Impact
I'll be out there, Gasol is quoted as saying. He's a huge piece of the Bulls offense and even at less than 100 percent the team will be happy to get him back in the lineup. Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic will see less playing time upon his return.

Impact
Beal also had seven rebounds, four assists, three blocks and a steal. He did, however, only shoot 9-for-21 from the field and turned the ball over five times. Even though John Wall played, Beal was still a huge factor in Game 5, so don't expect that to chance in Game 6.

Maybe most importantly, James did not have a single turnover, which was a big problem for him prior to Game 5. Game 6 is on Thursday.
