NBA DFS Write-up & Example Lineups: Playoff Edition - April 28
Steve Pimental pores over all of the statistics, splits and matchups to uncover the very best DFS NBA players for today's example lineups
Boston Celtics at Milwaukee Bucks
Milwaukee Bucks -7.5
Any scenario for Boston winning this series begins with Al Horford and Kyrie Irving playing Brook Lopez off the floor. When Horford is at his best he is a handful on both sides of the floor. Marcus Morris was pretty quiet against Indiana, playing 30 minutes just once. He could wind up being the backup center for much of this series, and I’d be pretty shocked if he doesn’t play 30+ minutes in this game. Boston’s starting five plus Gordon Hayward are all in play for fantasy, though Brown and Hayward feel the most risky.
The Celtics have multiple bodies to throw at Giannis Antetekounmpo in Al Horford, Marcus Morris, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and even Semi Ojeleye, but I’m not sure how much they can do against him. Giannis will almost certainly have a harder time than he did in Round 1, though he will probably play 5-7 minutes more than against Detroit.
