Charlotte Hornets DFS Spin
LaMelo Ball finished with 16 points, six rebounds and four assists in Wednesday’s loss to Washington. After erupting for a 33/8/6/4 line in his last game out, Ball couldn’t keep it going against Washington with another strong performance. Instead, he shot just 6-of-16 from the floor and failed to record a defensive stat. Since returning to the Hornets’ lineup, he’s played seven straight games and averaged 22.7 points, 8.7 boards, 7.7 assists, 2.5 steals and 3.3 triples in that span while logging nearly 40 minutes a night. There’s no need to worry about this off night.
Boston Celtics DFS Spin
Jayson Tatum shot 5-of-15 from the field and 1-of-3 from the foul line in Wednesday's 106-99 win over the 76ers, finishing with 12 points, eight rebounds, nine assists, one steal, one block, and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes. Tatum's had better nights shooting the basketball, as he didn't hit double figures until the fourth quarter. The good news is that he was productive in other areas, and some of his teammates stepped up offensively. Derrick White (19/6/3/0/2 with three 3-pointers) and Malcolm Brogdon (19/5/3 with two 3-pointers) combined to shoot 15-of-26 from the field, and Sam Hauser put up 14 points, eight rebounds, and four 3-pointers in 20 minutes off the bench. Tatum will look to bounce back Friday night against the Hornets, a team he lit up for 51 points on January 16.
