Player Notes

  • Posts 23 points in Game 2 victory
    Tatum posted 23 points (9-20 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds and five assists across 42 minutes during Thursday's 126-110 victory over the Pacers in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Advice: Tatum endured a slow start in this game, but he improved as the contest progressed, and the star forward ended with a solid stat line even though his shot wasn't falling, particularly from three-point range. Tatum has surpassed the 20-point mark in each of his last six playoff appearances and should continue to lead the Celtics on offense when the series shifts to Indiana for Game 3 on Saturday.

  • Leads Pacers in scoring Thursday
    Siakam registered 28 points (13-17 FG, 2-2 3Pt), five rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes during Thursday's 126-110 loss to the Celtics in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Advice: Siakam was Indiana's best player by a wide margin, as he missed just four of his 17 shots and also made his presence felt on the glass in a game during which the Pacers looked outmatched in terms of physicality and intensity. Siakam should remain one of Indiana's primary offensive weapons in Game 3, and he would be in line for an even more prominent role if Tyrese Haliburton (leg) doesn't play Saturday.

  • Out for Game 2
    Kleber (shoulder) will not play in Game 2 against the Timberwolves on Friday.

    Advice: No surprises here, as Kleber remains without an official timetable to return. His next chance to play will be Sunday for Game 3, but it's not looking promising. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 4:47 pm
  • Xavier Tillman (personal) active Thursday
    Xavier Tillman (personal reasons) is listed as active for Thursday’s Game 2 matchup between the Celtics and Pacers.

    Advice: Tillman wasn’t with his team for Game 1 because of personal reasons but will be available on Thursday. The reserve big man might give Boston some spot minutes off the pine but isn’t expected to play a significant role. Rotoworld Yesterday, 10:04 am
  • Poor shooting in Game 1
    Towns racked up 16 points (6-20 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one steal across 34 minutes during Wednesday's 108-105 loss to Dallas in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals.

    Advice: The Timberwolves need Towns to be consistent as an offensive threat, and while the numbers have been there most of the time, the efficiency has been lacking. Towns has scored at least 20 points in four of his last eight appearances since the start of the series against the Nuggets while shooting 47.4 percent from the field in that span, so he seems to be getting the job done even when he has an off night from time to time. Given he only made 30 percent of his shots in Game 1 on Wednesday, Towns will aim to bounce back in Game 2 on Friday. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 8:39 am
