Indiana Pacers DFS Spin
Tyrese Haliburton is questionable for Friday's matchup with Boston due to a sprained right ankle. Hali has missed six straight, but there's a chance he makes his return Friday against the Celtics. If he returns, the workloads of T.J. McConnell and Andrew Nembhard will take a hit.
Boston Celtics DFS Spin
Jayson Tatum led Boston with 36 points (14-for-25 FGs), eight rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in a 132-109 win over Sacramento on Tuesday. In the sixth and final game of this road trip, Tatum had his best game from the floor. Unfortunately, he also had one of his worst games from the free throw line. He opened up the game with two missed free throws before either team had scored, which gave every fan in attendance free cookies. He shot 6-for-11 from the line, which was his worst percentage from the charity stripe in a game this season when he has had more than 10 attempts. Despite that, it was encouraging to see him get back on track, and he'll look to keep it going in Boston on Friday.
