Celtics' Kyrie Irving: Scores 30 points in win over Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving led the Celtics with 30 points (10-12 FG, 5-6 3PT, 5-5 FT), four rebounds and five assists in a 110-99 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday.

Ironically, the 12 shots taken were his lowest total of the season, despite finishing with his second-highest scoring total of the year. The elite efficiency has to be encouraging too, as Irving was shooting under 40 percent from the field through the first few weeks of November prior to this blow-up. He's also hitting just 34 percent of his three's, as Irving is one of few elite players who could see his numbers rise once his jumper starts falling. The fact that he's leading this team with 18.4 shots and a usage rate of 29.1 furthers that point, as he'll continue to play a huge role in the absence of Gordon Hayward (ankle).

Celtics' Jaylen Brown: Drops 27 in win over Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown tallied 27 points (10-13 FG, 4-6 3PT, 3-7 FT) and four rebounds in a 110-99 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday.

Brown is scorching hot right now, as he is averaging over 20 points across his last four games. What's going to keep him an elite fantasy option going forward are his minutes, as he is averaging over 32 minutes per game. If there's one aspect that he could see an improvement in, it's his assists. Brown is averaging just 1.3 assists per game for the year, but his 21.3 usage rate and minutes should allow him to get above two the more he develops. The sky is the limit for this 21-year-old, as he's turning into one of the waiver wire pickups of the year.

Celtics' Al Horford: Delivers double-double in Thursday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Horford produced 18 points (7-11 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds and two assists from 35 minutes in Thursday's 92-88 win over the Warriors.

Horford delivered his sixth double-double of the season, increasing his rebounds per game to 9.0 from 6.8 last season. More impressive was Horford's help out defense which aided in keeping the top scoring Warriors to a season low of only 88 points. Big Al and Boston hope to extend their 14-game winning streak Saturday in Atlanta.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Helps in win despite scoring only one point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart posted an ugly line of one point (0-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block across 31 minutes in Thursday's 92-88 win over the Warriors.

Despite not making a shot from the field, Smart was still a key cog in Boston's big comeback win. His aggressive rebounding and tight defense helped spark a 19-0 run in the third quarter and resulted in a +15 plus-minus rating for the game. Smart's contributions are more valuable in real basketball versus fantasy, as his poor shooting (27 percent for the season) will always be a drain on your squad's field goal percentage. Smart and Boston hope to extend their 14-game winning streak Saturday in Atlanta.

Celtics' Kyrie Irving: Scores 16 points on 16 shots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving totaled 16 points (4-16 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT), six assists, five rebounds, one steal and one block across 34 minutes during a 92-88 win over the Warriors on Thursday.

Irving struggled with his shot again, but got to the foul line and sank some big free throws down the stretch in the win. His facial injury is likely bothering his shooting a bit, as did the tough matchup against the Warriors. Irving will likely start shooting a bit better in the team's next two games, against the lowly Hawks and Mavericks.
