Portland Trail Blazers DFS Notes

CJ McCollum finished Sunday’s important loss to Memphis with 27 points, two rebounds, three dimes and four turnovers in 38 minutes. It goes without saying that this was a rather empty line, but in comparison to recent years, this is more of an anomaly for C.J. Before tonight, he had four straight games with at least five rebounds and five assists, so his ability to contribute a bit better has propelled him into the top-25 for fantasy purposes this season. The Trail Blazers will need him and Damian Lillard to ball out to end the season to avoid participating in the play-in tournament.

Boston Celtics DFS Notes

Jayson Tatum (left ankle, rest) will be held out vs. the Thunder on Tuesday. The Celtics will also hold out Kemba Walker (rest). It's the front end of a back-to-back and the Celtics are looking to rest their franchise player against the tanking Thunder. Grant Williams and Semi Ojeleye will soak up a ton of minutes but are not fantasy options.

Hawks vs. Celtics Game Prediction

The Trail Blazers are 13-3 against the spread in their last 16 meetings with the Celtics and are 6-1 against the number in their last seven games in Indiana. On the other side, the Pacers are just 6-20 against the spread in their last 26 home games, are 1-7 at the betting window in their last eight games as a home dog and are 0-5 ATS in their last five home games versus an opponent with a winning road record.
