Memphis Grizzlies DFS Notes

Ja Morant set a new career-high with 52 points on 22-of-30 shooting (4-of-4 3-Pointers) and added seven rebounds and two assists in Monday’s win over the Spurs. King Ja was absolutely masterful in this one, delivering two more incredible highlights in what’s been a remarkable breakout campaign. For starters, he posterized Jakob Poeltl on one of the nastiest dunks of the season when he drove to the left, wound up and slammed it with authority. With less than half a second left until halftime, Steven Adams heaved the ball full court. Morant somehow caught it in traffic and hoisted up a buzzer-beater to close out the first half with a franchise-record 29 points. After setting a career-high with 46 points on Saturday, he eclipsed that total with an uber-efficient 52. The top-three scoring performances of his career have come within his last four games. The Murray State product has made Memphis games must-see TV, and he should be the runaway favorite for Most Improved Player and in consideration for MVP. It will be tough to follow this one up, but we’ll see what he offers as an encore in Thursday’s clash with the Celtics.

Boston Celtics DFS Notes

Jayson Tatum hit 12-of-25 shots and three 3-pointers for 33 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in 39 minutes of Tuesday's comeback 107-98 win over the Hawks. The Celtics overcame another big deficit to the Hawks just like they did on Super Bowl Sunday and overcame a 17-point deficit for an easy win after dominating the third quarter 31-13. Jaylen Brown left with an ankle injury after just three minutes and didn't return, and if he's going to miss time, Tatum could be ready to go on even more of a tear than he's already on.
