Miami Heat DFS Notes

Jimmy Butler put up 24 points, three rebounds, two dimes and a steal in Wednesday’s 106-98 win vs. Boston. The Heat were coming off a win but had lost four in a row prior to that. "I think we got a little comfortable, expecting we were going to win every night," Butler said of Miami's slump. "We have lapses at times, but I feel like we have a championship-caliber team. When we are clicking, we are tough to beat." The Heat trailed for most of the evening, but they outscored the Celtics 27-15 in the fourth which should give them a ton of confidence going forward. Kyle Lowry added 23 points and eight assists for Miami.

Chicago Bulls DFS Notes

DeMar DeRozan became the ninth NBA player in March to record a 50-spot during Thursday's overtime win vs. the Clippers with 50 points on 17-of-26 shooting from the field and 14-of-15 at the stripe. The Bulls needed every one of those buckets too, as he helped his team mount a comeback late in the fourth quarter, and 10 of his 50 points came in OT with his 50th sealing the deal for Chicago. DeRozan actually had the opportunity to win the game in regulation, as he was fouled on a 3-point attempt with just seconds left in the game and the Bulls down by two, and while he casually drilled his first two freebies, he uncharacteristically missed his third FT — which was his first miss at the line in three games. Still, he got the job done in the end, and the Bulls are now in the No. 5 spot out East with a record of 45-32.
