Damian Lillard lit up New Orleans on Wednesday with 41 points (12-for-22 FGs, 15-for-16 FTs), eight rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers in a 121-110 loss. In his first game against his former backcourt mate, Lillard wasn’t able to get the best of C.J. McCollum, but he was able to continue his dominant scoring run. After “only” scoring 25 points in their last game, Lillard got back on track in this one. Thanks to absurd scoring and 3-point numbers while also shooting good percentages and dropping dimes (which he didn’t do in this game), Lillard has been the best player in 9-cat leagues over the past two months. He reached 40 points for the 10th time since the calendar flipped to 2023. During that time, he also has a 50-point game, a 60-point game and a 71-point game. This has truly been a historic run for Dame, and it doesn’t seem like it’s ending any time soon.

Atlanta Hawks DFS Spin

Trae Young (right groin soreness) is listed as probable for Friday's matchup with Portland. Trae has been added to the injury report, but it's unlikely that the injury causes him to miss Friday's game. He should start and try to extend his 30-point game streak to three, while also trying to keep pace with Damian Lillard.
