This was an insane game between the Atlanta Hawks and Charlotte Hornets. It went into double overtime, meaning we got to see plenty of big fantasy performances. However, the game only extended after some controversy. With 0.8 seconds left in the first overtime, Treveon Graham ($3,000) was called for a foul on Terry Rozier ($6,600). This appeared to send Rozier to end the game at the free throw line. That was until Lloyd Pierce challenged the call and won. They played was changed to an offensive foul, extending the game into a second overtime.

In the second extra period, the Hawks appeared to be on their win to a win when Rozier drilled a three to tie the game with 25 seconds left. The shot put him at 40 points for the night and Devonte’ Graham ($6,400) got his tenth assist on the play. Unfortunately for the Hornets, they weren’t able to hold serve on defense. De’Andre Hunter ($5,200) was fouled shooting a three and knocked down all the free throws to put the Hawks on top 141-138. After the free throws Rozier missed a potential game-tying three, sealing the win for Atlanta.

As per usual, the biggest fantasy game came from Trae Young ($10,300). In the win, he had 31 points, 16 assists and 61.5 DKFP. On the Hornets’ side, Graham finished with a double-double and 58.5 DKFP, while Rozier ended his night with 55 DKFP. Obviously, this ended up being a terrific game to target for DFS.
