Boston Celtics Fantasy Spin

Kyrie Irving hit 7-of-15 shots and two 3-pointers for 19 points, five rebounds, 11 assists and two steals in 30 minutes as the Celtics crushed the Warriors 128-95 in Oracle Arena on Tuesday night. Irving had a post-game interview that didn't result in any crazy comments and the Celtics finally looked like a team that liked each other tonight. Maybe they can keep it going and right the ship after losing five of their previous six games before tonight's offensive, feel-good explosion.

Sacramento Kings Fantasy Spin

Buddy Hield shot 9-of-18 from the field and 7-of-7 from the foul line Monday, scoring 28 points with seven assists, six rebounds, two steals, one blocked shot and three 3-pointers vs. the Knicks. Hield has played well of late, as he's scored 23 points or more in four of his last five games. During that stretch the third-year guard is averaging 27.0 points, 6.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 2.0 steals and 3.0 three-pointers per game while shooting 42.3% from the field, 39.5% from three and 91.4% from the foul line. Hield has been a top-20 player in nine-category leagues over the last two weeks, providing excellent value on a team that's in the hunt for a playoff spot.

Prediction

I faded the Celtics last night and now I feel like I’m playing Russian Roulette by backing them tonight but that’s exactly what I’m going to do. Last night in Oakland, Boston finally played like its capable of playing when firing on all cylinders. Irving looked engaged, Gordon Hayward went off for 30 points and Jaylen Brown was instrumental in the victory by scoring 18. The Celtics are 8-3 against the spread in their last 11 games versus the Kings, who lost last season’s two meetings with Boston by an average of 19 points.
