Joel Embiid shot 13-of-14 from the foul line in Tuesday’s win over the Kings, finishing with 25 points (6-of-15 FGs), 17 rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocks in 35 minutes. Embiid went back to the locker room during the fourth quarter after suffering a laceration on his knee, but that was only to change tights (he wears them under his game shorts). The double-double is his 14th of the season, and first since February 3 vs. Charlotte. Embiid has been one of the most dominant players in fantasy basketball to this point in the season, as he ranks in the top-3 in both 8- and 9-cat formats. This will remain the case, so long as “The Process” stays healthy.

Portland Trail Blazers DFS Spin

Damian Lillard led the Blazers past the Magic Tuesday night, scoring 36 points (9-of-22 FGs, 13-of-13 FTs) with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 34 minutes. Lillard has scored 30 points or more in four of his last six games, putting up 29 in one of the other two. With C.J. McCollum (foot) sidelined Lillard has been asked to do even more offensively, and for the most part he’s delivered. He has remained a top-10 player in both 8- and 9-cat formats, and over the last two weeks Lillard is averaging 31.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, 7.3 assists, 1.2 steals and 5.0 3-pointers per game. It’s “Dame Time,” and most opponents have proven to be powerless in their attempts to stop it.

Celtics vs. Warriors Betting Prediction

The 76ers are 0-5-1 against the spread in their last six games versus the Blazers and are 0-3-1 against the number in their last four trips to Portland. The Sixers are also just 14-34-3 against the spread in their last 51 road games, are 7-18-2 against the number in their last 27 games as a favorite and are 7-19-1 ATS in their last 27 road games when facing an opponent with a winning home record. On the other side, the Blazers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games as an underdog and have covered in five of their last seven games overall.
