Philadelphia 76ers DFS Notes
Tobias Harris said his hand went numb after experiencing a hard foul to put him on the line late in the fourth quarter. "I really couldn't feel my hand," said Harris, as he tried to explain why he missed back-to-back free throws with 13.2 seconds left in regulation. "I never miss two free throws in a row, so that was a tough one." Harris played through it and drilled two free throws in OT to seal the deal for Philly, so we suspect he'll be fine for Tuesday's game vs. the Warriors, but we wouldn't be surprised to see him pop up on the injury report.
Golden State Warriors DFS Notes
Stephen Curry (bruised tailbone) will not play vs. the Sixers on Tuesday. Jordan Poole should thrive with another fill-in start coming his way, and will remain a popular DFS option despite his recent spike in salary. Draymond Green will control the offense even more than usual, and both Kelly Oubre and Andrew Wiggins will have some extra shots at their disposal. The Warriors are ruling out Steph a day in advance, which suggests his return isn't imminent, but we'll call him day-to-day prior to Thursday's game in Sacramento.
76ers vs. Warriors Game Prediction
The Sixers have covered the spread in eight of their last 11 meetings with the Warriors and are 7-1-1 against the number in their last nine games overall. The Warriors, meanwhile, are just 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games playing on two days of rest and are 1-5 against the number in their last six games when their opponent allowed 100 points or more in their previous game.
