The Celtics are looking for their first win of the season, losing to both the Knicks and Raptors to start the season. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown continue to be solid scorers, but Boston has not found balance on the offensive end of the floor. Defensively, the team is allowing a lot of easy baskets in transition and needs to be more connected.
This is the start of a deep rebuild for the Rockets, so the emphasis is more on the development of rookies rather than wins and losses. Jalen Green, Alperen Sengun, Josh Christopher and Usman Garuba is the quartet worth monitoring over the course of the year. Houston’s veterans have been performing well to start the season, so they’ll be the primary picks for DFS and fantasy lineups.
