Atlanta Hawks DFS Notes

Trae Young hit the game-winner with four seconds left and had 24 points, eight assists, four rebounds, one steal and two triples in a 111-110 Game 3 win vs. Miami. Miami allowed the fewest fantasy points per game to PGs during the regular season and that has translated to the playoffs with Trae shooting a combined 11-of-32 in the first two games. Tonight was no different for the most part, but Trae finally woke up late in the fourth quarter with 10 points in the final four minutes which included a game-winning floater. The Hawks will look to continue to ride their impressive home record as they attempt to even the series in Game 4 on Sunday.

Miami Heat DFS Notes

Bam Adebayo netted 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting (2-of-3 FT) Sunday, to go with eight rebounds, one assist and one turnover across 30 minutes in Miami’s Game 4 thrashing of Atlanta. Adebayo finished Friday’s Game 3 loss to Atlanta with just 11 points on nine shots, but he matched those numbers early in the third quarter of today’s game, and his 11 field goal attempts tonight were the most he’s attempted through the first four games of this series. The Heat will want more of this version of Bam in Game 5 on Tuesday when they return to Miami and look to close out this series on their home floor.
