Tatum Posts 26/10/9/0/2 Line vs. Heat
Jayson Tatum shot 11-of-20 from the field and 2-of-2 from the foul line in Sunday’s 110-106 win over Miami, finishing with 26 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists, two blocks, and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes.
Tatum was outstanding in Miami, finishing one assist shy of a triple-double. Considered to be an MVP candidate by some, he’s played excellent basketball recently. Over the past two weeks, Tatum has averaged 28.0 points, 8.7 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 1.1 steals, 1.1 blocks, and 3.4 3-pointers while shooting 51.0% from the field and 89.7% from the foul line. That production has been good for top-10 per-game value in 8- and 9-cat formats. The Celtics play four games in Week 17, with two on each side of the All-Star break.
Schroder Records Double-Double vs. Spurs
Dennis Schroder made his debut for the Nets on Saturday and contributed 15 points (6-of-13 FGs), three rebounds, 12 assists and three 3-pointers in a 123-103 win over the Spurs
Schroder’s tenure with the Nets got off to a good start, as he had 10 points and six assists in the first half. He ended up recording a double-double in his first game for Brooklyn, despite coming off the bench. It is unclear if he will continue to come off the bench, but he should be able to play big minutes either way. He ranks outside the top-100 in 9-cat leagues over the course of the season, but he should be able to bump that number up if he continues to play this well for his new squad.
