New York Knicks DFS Spin

Julius Randle shot 11-of-21 from the field and 6-of-7 from the foul line in Tuesday's 105-103 win over the Cavaliers, scoring 36 points with 14 rebounds and eight 3-pointers in 37 minutes. Randle came out firing Tuesday night, shooting 5-of-6 from three and 6-of-8 from the field overall in the first quarter. He's now scored 30 points or more in 14 games, including two of his last three. The lack of defensive stats and turnover count (five) wasn't great, but Randle did yeoman's work as a scorer and rebounder. He's providing 6th-round value in 9-cat formats, one of three Knicks ranked within the top 100 (Jalen Brunson, Mitchell Robinson). Also, Randle has hit double figures in rebounds in 14 of his last 15 games, grabbing 14 or more in 10 of them.

Boston Celtics DFS Spin

Jayson Tatum dominated the Heat on Tuesday with 31 points (9-for-18 FGs, 11-for-14 FTs), 14 rebounds, seven assists, one steal, seven turnovers and two 3-pointers in a 98-95 loss. Without his running mate on the wing for this game, Tatum was able to fill up the stat sheet from the beginning. They were without Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart and Malcolm Brogdon, which allowed him to provide some extra playmaking numbers. That also led to more turnovers for him. He has been fantastic all season, but he has turned the ball over a lot as of late. He has 17 turnovers over his last three games, which is suboptimal, considering he only has 20 assists in that same span. With Marcus Smart out for at least a few more games, Tatum should continue to have the ball in his hands, which means the inflated assists and turnovers may continue.
