New York Knicks DFS Notes

The Clippers limited Julius Randle to 14 points on 7-of-19 shooting Sunday, but he also grabbed 14 rebounds and dished five assists in a 106-100 road victory. Randle is basically a lock for Most Improved Player honors, as he's been the tireless engine behind New York's 38-30 record this season. The Knicks came into Sunday with a tenuous hold on the No. 4 seed, followed closely by the Hawks (0.5 games back), Heat (1.0) and Celtics (2.0). They can't afford to give their All-Star forward much (or any) rest, therefore, setting him up for a fittingly strong finish to the 2020-21 regular season.

Los Angeles Lakers DFS Notes

LeBron James (ankle) is listed as out on the Lakers' injury report but he's expected to play on Tuesday against the Knicks. The Lakers haven't paid attention to updating their injury report for most of the season so we're guessing LeBron will play tomorrow. Stay tuned.

Hawks vs. Celtics Game Prediction

The Knicks have covered in four of their last five games overall and are 8-2 against the number in their last 10 games as a road underdog.

On the other side, the Lakers are 0-3-1 against the spread in their last four games as a favorite and are 1-5-1 against the number in their last seven games playing on one day of rest.
