Milwaukee Bucks DFS Notes

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 29 points on 11-of-21 shooting (7-of-10 free throws) and grabbed 11 rebounds to go with five assists, two steals, and one block as the Bucks beat the Celtics 127-121 on Thursday night. The Bucks and Celtics entered Thursday tied with the Sixers for the 2nd seed in the Eastern Conference. Boston was without Jayson Tatum (knee) and Al Horford (back) and remains without Robert Williams (knee) so this was a game that Milwaukee had to have. The Bucks wasted no time attacking the paint, as they scored 58 points in that area, and Antetokounmpo was a big reason why as he always is. With the Sixers losing, and the Bucks taking care of Boston, if Milwaukee wins out, they will occupy the 2-seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. They will have to beat the Pistons on Friday and the Cavaliers on Sunday to make that happen.

Detroit Pistons DFS Notes

Cade Cunningham dropped 25 points (7-of-19 FGs, 10-of-11 FTs) with nine assists, seven rebounds, two steals, one block and one triple in a loss to Dallas on Wednesday. After playing eight minutes vs. the Thunder on April 1st in a failed tank attempt, Cade was held out vs. the Pacers and the Pistons somehow pulled out another win. The Pistons are hanging on to their top-3 odds by a thread with the Thunder ready to pounce, so there is no guarantee we see Cade in the final two games of the regular season.
