Milwaukee Bucks DFS Notes
Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 34 points and grabbed 16 rebounds, to go with five assists, two steals, one block, and four turnovers as the Bucks beat the Bulls on Friday night. It was business as usual for Antetokounmpo on Friday, which means another huge night and a W in the win column. The Greek Freak shot 12-of-22 from the floor (0-of-2 3-pointers) and was 10-of-19 at the foul line. The Bucks have now beaten two of the three teams ahead of them in the standings in consecutive games. They will get another big test on Sunday in an NBA Finals rematch against the Suns, so get your popcorn ready.
Phoenix Suns DFS Notes
Devin Booker (health and safety protocols) is listed as out for Friday's matchup with the Knicks. Despite reports of an inconclusive test, it appears as though Booker will remain in league protocols. He should miss their Finals rematch with the Bucks in Milwaukee on Sunday as well. With Booker and Chris Paul both sidelined, guys like Cameron Payne, Cameron Johnson, and Landry Shamet should all benefit. Payne and Shamet started in the backcourt during the blowout win over Portland, while Johnson led all scorers. Booker is on track to return for their game in Orlando on March 8th.
