Boston Celtics DFS Notes

Jaylen Brown hit 10-of-21 shots and two 3-pointers on his way to a team-high 25 points, seven rebounds, four assists, four steals and a block with just one turnover in 35 minutes of Wednesday's easy 117-94 win over the Bulls. He hit just 3-of-6 free throws but the rest of his game was basically flawless tonight. Jayson Tatum struggled to the tune of 16 points on 5-of-18 shooting but also had 10 rebounds and eight assists to just miss a coveted triple-double, while Al Horford came through with 17 points, 10 rebounds, two steals and a block, and Daniel Theis finished with 15 points and six rebounds in the win. The Celtics are trying to hold off the Bucks for the No. 2 seed in the East and currently sit a half game ahead of Milwaukee with just two games to play, while the Bucks have three games remaining. Marcus Smart cooled off with just nine points and six assists on 3-of-7 shooting, but also hit three 3-pointers with a steal and a block.

Milwaukee Bucks DFS Notes

Giannis Antetokounmpo (right knee soreness) is probable to play against the Celtics on Thursday. It’s a massive game for both teams as they currently hold the same record in the Eastern Conference, but that will change depending on how the Celtics do tonight against the Bulls. There’s almost no chance Milwaukee lets their franchise player sit out of such a crucial game.
