Boston Celtics DFS Spin

Jayson Tatum (non-COVID illness) led all scorers during Sunday's comeback win vs. Denver, dropping 28 points on 9-of-23 shooting with an 8-of-8 mark at the line. Boston overcame a rough start to win for the fifth time in their past six games, powered by Tatum's scoring and suffocating late-game defense (Denver scored eight points in the fourth quarter). He also grabbed 10 rebounds today, giving him three straight 20-10 games, and is peaking at an ideal time for fantasy managers. The Celtics have won three straight and will continue their road trip with games vs. the Blazers (Tuesday) and Lakers (Thursday).

Portland Trail Blazers DFS Spin

Damian Lillard was off his game on Sunday, scoring just 12 points on 3-of-10 shooting (3-of-4 FT), to go with one rebound, three assists, three triples, one steal, one block and an unfortunate five turnovers in a loss to the Heat. Lillard did pass up the legendary Dirk Nowitzki to move into 11th place on the NBA's all-time 3-point list in this one, and he's just six away from replacing Jason Kidd in the top-10, but that probably didn't matter much to him with how badly the Blazers got beat up tonight. C.J. McCollum wasn't much better, scoring 17 points on 7-of-18 shooting to go with six rebounds, four assists, three triples and four turnovers in 36 minutes.

Bucks vs. Clippers Betting Prediction

The Celtics are 14-5 against the spread in their last 19 games in Portland and are 4-0 against the number in their last four road games. On the other side, the Trail Blazers are winless at the betting window in their last six games when facing an opponent like Boston that has a winning record.
