Memphis Grizzlies DFS Notes

Jonas Valanciunas had 16 points and 15 rebounds at halftime and finished with 23 points, 23 rebounds and three blocks on 10-of-16 shooting in Wednesday's 100-96 play-in win over the Spurs. JV set a Memphis playoff record by becoming the first player in franchise history to have 20 points and 20 rebounds by the end of the third quarter. Ja Morant added 20 points, six boards and six assists in the win and the Grizzlies will play the loser of the Lakers-Warriors game for the No. 8 seed in the West. If you rolled with JV tonight, you did well.

Golden State Warriors DFS Notes

Stephen Curry, Nikola Jokic and Joel Embiid have been named finalist in the MVP Award race for the 2020-21 season. The award is almost assuredly going to go to Jokic, but you could make a case for all three of these guys. Curry led the league in scoring (32.0) and true shooting percentage (65.5) while guiding the Dubs back to the postseason, Embiid was a monster statistically while helping Philly earn the No. 1 seed out East, and Jokic played in all 72 while ranking No. 1 in fantasy hoops and leading Denver to a top-3 seed out West.
