Boston Celtics DFS Spin
Jayson Tatum had a monster game vs the Lakers on Saturday night, netting 30 points on 12-of-18 shooting with nine rebounds, three assists and two steals. Tatum was clutch down the stretch for Boston, scoring six of the team's final eight points but the Celtics came up just short of victory. Still, the Celtics wing was special on Saturday vs the Lakers and had sweet no-look, behind-the-back dime to Robert Williams who finished the play with a dunk (line below). It was Tatum's fourth 30-point game of the season and there's likely many more to come.
Golden State Warriors DFS Spin
Stephen Curry shot 11-of-17 from the field in Saturday’s win over the Pistons, finishing with 28 points, five rebounds, seven assists, two steals and six 3-pointers in 30 minutes. Curry could have hit the 30-point mark for the first time since January 25, but he fell two points shy as there was no reason to have the star guard on the court during the fourth quarter. For the season Curry is providing first-round value in both 8- and 9-cat formats, making good on the preseason expectations that many fantasy managers had for him. He and the Warriors will face a much tougher test on Tuesday however, as the Celtics are scheduled to visit.
