Both Kemba Walker ($7,600) and Jimmy Butler ($7,300) had big games in Boston. The Heat were coming off an overtime win against the Raptors, raising concerns about how much gas they would have left in the tank tonight. For Butler, the answer appears to be plenty. He finished with 37 points and 55.5 DKFP after putting up a triple-double last night. Unfortunately for Miami, he didn’t have much help. Nobody else on the team was able to top 25 DKFP
Walker led the way for the Celtics with 52 DKFP. This is the third time in four games that he’s gone over 40 DKFP since coming back from a scary neck injury. Boston played without Marcus Smart (illness) and Grant Williams ($3,000) got the first start of his career as a fill in. Even as a starter, it doesn’t look like Williams will have much fantasy relevance. The rookie was held to 8.25 DFFP in 18 minutes. Jaylen Brown ($7,000) came on strong for the Celtics in the second half, scoring a team-high 31 points. The win moves Boston into second place in the Eastern Conference.
